I think it is safe to say that this upcoming season will be great. i enjoyed this past season but it had its problems, the main one being the rules/weakness changes with the DP sets. what this effectively did was eliminate 99% of pre-DP decks (the exception: flygon ex with no weakness). this made for a really tight metagame, couple that with a dominant psychic type and you get entirely too many mirror matches (i think i had 5 out of 7 at state). this upcoming season shouldn't see any of these problems. no deck survived the format change last summer (flygon ex decks were totally reworked). this year any number will: GG/Plox, Magmortar, Empoleon, Garchomp, Meat Loaf, Beedrill/Rock Band, Skittles, Eeveelutions. Sure some will be stronger and others weakner but the point is, this time around there is alot more continuity from this past season, which should add depth and variety to the game. may this upcoming season be the Year of the Rogue.
