    Do you guys think this could be a viable card?

    Repel

    Your opponent may not play pokemon to the bench during his next turn.

    Obviously it's powerful, and would create some serious game shifts. It would probably be best in a metagame not already dominated by Lostgar (ie, not the current Japanese format until they man up and ban LW). In a format without it running the show though, what do you think?

    I think it would be overpowered. All LostGar decks would run 4 of these, and most likely T1 wins would run this too, on the hope of going second.

    A little powerful but I'll use it for sure. I mean, they made Pokeflute when Gust of Wind was out so I guess this can work.

    Maybe if it was a supporter or had a stipulation like Luxury Ball? (Since you can't layer Repels, and all.)

    Or maybe it would even make use of the Level mechanic: your opponent can't play Pokemon of lower level than your Active, or something.

    That wouldn't make sense in HGSS- Levels aren't there. Maybe none of a lower evolutionary stage? I like your idea in a DPPl format, though.

    I think it should be on a coin flip otherwise it's too overpowered to be just repel and not super/max repel

    Adding Super or Max to the front of a cards title doesn't make the card any more balanced.

    I like the idea, but it's super powerful at the moment. Repel doesn't always work in the games though, so maybe something like this (It's super wordy, but it's a thought >.>)

    During your opponents next turn, when they play a basic Pokemon onto their bench, they must flip a coin. If tails, that basic is instead placed face-up next to your opponents active Pokemon, and it cannot be played again this turn (This card still counts as being in your opponents hand, and is not in play). If heads, the Pokemon comes into play normally.

    The revealing of the basic is to ensure that the player doesn't keep trying to play the same Pokemon - if you have 2 Shuckle, you can try to play each individually, since the first one you tried to play is still revealed, your opponent knows you're not cheating and just repeating the same card.

    im not saying throw a word in front of it, im saying repel needs a coin flip and that if there were a card that did this, it would have to be max repel

    How is that not throwing a word in front of it?

    If! if! if! I'm not saying the solution is to do that, it's obviously put it on a coin flip, but IF a card were printed with this specific text, it would make more sense to be max repel. Don't change the name, put a coin flip on it.

    You must wait 100 turns before playing another repel card? ;PP
