for Nintendo to take into consideration. With the heavy onslaught of blaziken ex decks. I think the format just for Gym Challenges; this is soon enough notice if they do it within a week, should be standard modified with no EX pokemon. But only for the Gym Challenges right now. This will bring a fresh change and new decks to the environment. Then depending on how it is taken and the decks that are shown, it can be deceided what format to run in later events. The Gym’s are plenty enough and widespread enough that the display of decks will determine the impact of no EX’s on the environment and players. If the format is not changed in some fashion (i.e. ban blaz EX and rare candy), the tournament environment is going to be hurt alot and no one but blaze EX players are going to want to even play. Wizard did it and does it alot with magic, admits when they have made a broken card for certain environments. Nintendo needs to get the guts to ban Blaz EX, rare candy (would not be broken if it was a supporter) or all EX’s. They need to do this to show they care about the playing environment and not allow it to deteriorate.
