    Rare candies are found in almost every archetypes ever since it was printed out on EX Sandstorm and is reprinted again in OP5? IMO this reprint has saved many decks.I'm wondering IF Rare Candy gets rotated out in future formats and is not reprinted.The likes of Empoleon, R-gon, Mario will be totaled because all of them uses rare candy for speed. Let me hear your opinions please

    Well if Rare Candy rotates, then those decks will too. -_- Rare Candy is being reprinted again in one of the Diamond and Pearl sets. No worries. Rare Candy is here to stay!

    EDIT: And I think this is the wrong forum for this. should be in single cards?

    I'm not so sure if rare candy is helping us right now. The player going second gets to go Rare Candy Stage2 DRE KO I win. Thats not healthy with invites determined by ratings. Its not Candy's fault that this is happening, but Candy is a key card in the strategy.

    There is no doubt in my mind that the slower stage 2 decks need acceleration to make them playable. BUT RC appears to be giving just a bit too much assistance to the FTKO. Right now I think the old Pokémon Breeder would be a better option.

    Yes i agree with that.Rare candy helps sets up T2/3 KOs with DRE combos

    i hope rare candy will be like potion, and will never get rotated.

    they wont not print rare candy ever again IMO
    if they did, stage one decks would have a massive advantage in terms of speed (more than they already even do), and most stage two decks would probably fall out of favor with players

    ^agrees 100%. If stage 2 decks didn't have candy avaliable, it would slow them down to the point where they couldn't beat stage 1 decks 80% of the time just because of this limit on speed (and the fact that most stage 1s are hitting for about the same as stage 2s now).

    The day they get rid of Candy is the day they stop rinting stage 2's. They'd die in any format.

    no candy = no stage 2 decks = not cool = no ppl wants to play = they lose money

    :lol: I don't even know why the keep printing Potion over and over. Nobody serious plays it. They might just stop making Rare Candy once they realize that almost everyone is playing it, and most in quantities of four.
