I"m currently taking a break from playtesting, and working on my D/P DS team. Mainly because there it's almost a month before I have a CC. But I haven't completely forgot about the TCG. I've been thinking about how some of the new Secret Wonders cards comboed with the rest of the format will affect the current Metagame. So without further delay here we go: Gallade (SW)- Tego has announced that he will be the Blissey counter. Not much more needs to be said when your beating the BDIF for ABRs. But I would like to see how it does against the rest of the Metagame since Tego is in a different format then us. Vibrava (SW)- This card will make one of our favorite cards playable again, Flygon Ex D. Combined with Memory Berry and Crystal Beach, you could run the Fly by itself. Maybe 1 or 2 techs but not as many as R-gon. (If this does get good, then I have naming right, Cobigon) Ampharos (SW)- A lot of hype surrounds this card mainly due to it's body. While it's a good body, I like it's attack better. It's like Empoleon but better energy requiment with LCC, allowing it to have more playability with other cards, and an auto 20 to any of your opponent's bench pokemon that has an energy; so it could be more then one and none of this flip stuff. The body could be easily controlled by your opponent who plays CC, but only for so long. A bad weakness since Lucario, and a few other fighting are popular but not too bad because of it's HP. S.W.A.T: Stadiums (mainly Crystal Beach) Vs. Windstorm/Warp Point And Tools battle - Around here, Ness and I have started playing Crystal Beach, while I know that around the nation many like to play Lake Barrier (which the name is kind of ironic to what the card does, anyway). Crystal Beach gives the few Exs or other Pokemon cards that are playable a counter to the DRE/Scramble decks. But those decks could also play their own stadiums; most that play other stadiums don't play windstorm, Empoleon and Lucario but those play Cess. Crystal disrupting bodies like Kingdra Ex D's Extra Smoke or Flygon Ex D's Sand Damage. Finally, you add windstorm/counter stadium/warp point to the mix for the decks that rely on both DRE/Scramble and Powers/Bodies, and we have ourselves a very interesting format. EDIT: I forgot to mention warp point before, especially with Lucario Lv. X being very popular as well as Cess. Crystal. Weavile - It has a great power and attack where it could be played a lot of different variants, free retreat so once it's done powering another pokemon on the bench it can just retreat after that, and on top of that it has a semi disruptive attack so in case your opponent looks like they are going to get far ahead of you, you can slow down their set-up. A great set up card so it'll be interesting to see which variants will have the most success. Feel free to add any cards and reasons you like those cards or input on matchups, analysis of S.W.A.T (stadium, windstorm and tool) battle, actual playability of a hype card or whatever for that matter.
