    This only just occured to me recently but its REALLY uncanny. Consider this:

    Fighting Stage 2
    Prevos are a different type to it
    2 attacks:
    1st does no direct damage but has an effect that brings down opponent's HP into KO range & puts them in generally a bad situation
    2nd does increasable damage that can reach massive amounts depending on the circumstances
    Big HP
    Good weakness
    Retreat cost of 2
    Used in (one of) the biggest deck(s) of the time

    I'll follow this up after a few responses. I mean, obviously its Gallade but think about it a bit more cos its weird.

    Gallade, and I hate to say it, is GOOD!!! Maybe thats why pokemon like Wailord have come out to give G limits... Wailord does suck though, the only way I would run it is with maybe blastoise SW or to stall!!!:thumb:

    Where are you going with this? We know ot's uber... XP
    It is awesome, btu I think Gallade needs to find new partner besides Gardy. At first I thought you were mentiong Sandslash... I don't know why. lol

    Gallade is one of the best but still just a pokemon. their are ways of beating it consistently. Until other cards come out I doubt you will find a better partner than Gardy.

    I don't need to tell anyone how good Gallade is, its NIDOQUEEN FR/LG. Read the clues again and think about it. Weird.

    That's just nutty. Nidoqueen was better though.

    except Queen didn't have as good a back up hitter as Gallade does.

    I'll say this once again see if anyone catches on. The Gallade on it's on is not entirely broken, their several ways to beat it. BUT, whenever it starts having trouble against any deck it hides behind the Gardy say "protect me Gardy these guys are too much for me too take down". I'm not talking about the obvious combo with the Lvl X. I'm talking about Psychic Lock.

    Even then it's still beatable as I was locked most of the game with my future states deck, and still managed to beat it. I'm 2-0 against it.

    for instance one way to beat gallade or at least slow it down a bit is to first send something up to fight it with lots of HP like magmortar lv.X or something and have them flip over 4-5 prizes and then it wont be AS difficult

    Oh god no the decks aren't the same. I just thought it was astonishing how similar the two cards themselves are.

    Require two different types of energy for its attacks.
    Stage 1 has a first attack that lets you use stuff in your discard (okay, not really, but still discard related).

    Well, the card did help win a World Championship, didn't it?

    Indeed.

    A sign of things to come?

    But Queen was kinda kept secret and it had Pidgeot.

    Not comparing decks here...

    So, who needs Pidgeot when you have Gardevoir. (which just so happens to be an alternet evo and thus saves space and is easier to set up)
