I'm prepairing a deck with Blastoise Legendary Collection. Can the Basic Set Beast return? I'll post this in the Deck Board. But I ivite you to reply some combos with LC Blastoise. I think that Poliwrath could match. How do you say?

Blastoise is still one of the greatest Pokemon ever. However, because it so severely breaks the general rule that you can only play one energy per turn, IMO, it will NEVER be re-released, NEVER!

But, if I'm playing Unlimited, it's certainly one of my top 5 choices.

"...Blastoise Legendary Collection. Can the Basic Set Beast return"

The Blastoise from Legendary Collection is Dark Blastoise, the Basic set one was the raindance one. If your looking for some combos with Dark Blastoise I would say Rockets Hideout, Mettal engery, Gold Berry. If your looking for some combos with raindance blastioise I would say that the best one is Engery Flow and Pokemon center/Pokemon Nurse.

I would suggest that you are a bit more clear in what Blastoise you meen [Big Grin]

Erica total 24, thats right, 24.
Dunsprace total 41.
I've gotten 98 on that Machoke at work game. I beat Driving Corasola.
I almost beat the record in Hold Down hip hop. I got 2000 or so in Kinglers day. I got 7 in Rapadash's dash. Butterfree's Flower Power 4700. 123 In Jumping Dodoro. My all foil deck is finished.

I disagree about Blastoise being too powerful. If it would be playable now, it probably would be. But if it will be released, it certainly will not be released for some months. At least not until Neo1 has been rotated out of Modified. And with poor drawing to support it, it will not be half as strong as it was in the old days. All drawing-power needed to get (and keep) Blastoise running consists of Supporters. That would mean that Blastoise will only get 1 or 2 Energies each turn to play. And there is that Electabuzz which is already allowed in Modified.

You should not read the next sentence.
Why won't you listen?
