i really marvel that this card has driven almost all fighting weak pokemon out of the game (except for darkrai and furret and maybe absol). it is even more amazing to me when you realize that most GG decks only run TWO gallades anymore. two cards out of sixty, from one deck in the format. even lucario didn't have this much impact and it was the centerpiece of several decks. it seems to me that the pendulum must swing back the other way soon. i think if Majestic Dawn decks weaken GG at all (that is, if we do see a rise in Empoleon MD/Garchomp lvl X decks) then there will inevitably be a rise in electric or normal type counter decks (i would love to play electivire again, sigh). of course there are new fighting types coming in, notably kabutops, which might prolong the situation. but two gallades can't hold the line like roman sentries overlooking the rhine forever, can they?
