    EX: Dragon should contain the following dragon-type pokemon from the Japanese ADV3 and the accompanying mini-decks:

    Kingdra EX
    Dratini - Dragonair - Dragonite EX
    Vibrava (three versions) - Flygon (two versions)
    Altaria (does Dragon Dance attack)
    Bagon (3) - Shelgon (3) - Salamence (2)
    Rayquaza EX
    Latios EX
    Latias EX

    It (well, ADV3) also has a couple of neat Trainers:

    Balloon Berry (reprinted from NEO)
    Strato Gym (stadium) - reduces Water and/or Fire energy costs (still waiting to see how close nick15 got on this one)
    Pressure Gym (stadium) - raises Grass and Lightning pokemon HP by +10
    Mr Briney's Advice - scoop up those non-EX pokemon back into your hand (without a flip!!!!!!)
    Defense Charge - prevent 20 HP from incoming damage

    All the above, as usual, thanks to nick15's efforts and spoilers found at !!!!!

    Yea Gyrados is a dragon, even though he technically isn't, it is a big paradox.
    Gyrados is water/flying so confusing...

    Those trainers seem useful enough. And Rayquaza EX is well... ALL THAT!

    Duh! The set is called "Dragon" there's no 's' on it, so there's only one... (just teasing. ;))

    I don't like baloon berry at all. Sure you retreat for free but you can't retreat again because using the berry counts as your one retreat per turn thing. Not like switch or anything.

    You're right... I haven't thought about how much Balloon Berry suffered from the reatreat rule change. Balloon Berry indeed isn't very good anymore.

    Well, I was thinking it might help out a Wailord EX instead of discarding (CCCCC) if you needed to bench it for a bit, but still attack that turn with another Poke (intead of using Deep Dive).

    (same with Aggron EX with its (CCCC) retreat cost).

    [edit]Of course, Switch would do that, too, huh? - (my read of dkates E-on Deckbuilding article reminded me of that fact), without commiting the card to one pokemon[/edit]

    fufufu....there are other good cards in the set, like Shedinja, whose Poke-Body/Power (cant remember) makes for very interesting play indeed....and a Magneton with if I remember correctly will easily beat most Pokemon.....oh yes, and the absolute Cream of the non-Dragon crop.....those adorable lightning twins, Plusle and Minun!!! ^_^

    I love Shedinja's Poke-BODY Strange Protection!!!

    "Prevent all effects of attack, including damage, done to your Active Pokemon from EX-Pokemon and Evolution Pokemon."

    I, too, spotted the Magneton (stage 1) that is better than R&S Gardevoir (!):

    "[LC] Magnetic Force (10x)
    This attack does 10 damage times the number of Energy cards attached to all your Pokemon in play."

    Imagine that, together with a fully-powered Rainbow Burn Flygon (6 basic energy) and Rainbow Burn Ho-oh (6 basic energy), and Shedinja on the bench....... [don't want to give up my entire decklist yet, though ;)]

    ususal credits to PA! apply :D

    Just discovered a fundamental difference in the translations of Shedinja's Power - Usagi-chan's reads so:

    "Mysterious Protection
    Prevents all effects of attacks, including damage, done to Shedinja by your opponenet's evolved Pokemon and your opponent's Pokemon-ex"

    This makes a world of difference!

    Only time will tell...

    the version of shedinjas pokepower at PA is just too broken, plus its a pokebody, so i think it is obvious that it will only affect shedinja, since no Poke-Body until now, affects another Pokemon, only the one with the poke body, such as zangoose, scizor, Armaldo (which doesnt affect a pokemon, but the players).
