    This is going to be a HUGE card. Hard Crush can usualy do 50 or 100 damage, for 0 energy! And it could do up to 250 damage...
    It'll go great with Porygon-Z (IFDS) and Lv.X, with the ability to set up and put cards onthe top of the deck.
    Or need to get back those energy? Well, use a few Dialga IFDS...

    And Upthrow is pretty good too, or is late game or just after Hard Crush.

    And with a whoping 170 HP, this is the Lv.X with the most HP and second out of all legal cards.

    You know what I just noticed? Rhyperior lv.X is one the very few lv.X that don't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body. The only other lv.X released without a Poke-Power or Poke-Body is Honchkrow lv.X. That's kind of weird.

    edit: Ah, I wasn't the only one to notice it.

    I want this to be able to go well with Porygon-Z Lv.X, but it just seems like it would be way too hard to have them out consistently. That would still be a guaranteed 100, plus any more energies you come across after that.

    Yeah, this would combo with Porygon-Z great if you can find a way to make it consistent and fast. I really like this card, and i think it has some potential, it gives a bit more offense to a Rhyperior Discard Deck

    this card is just sick - add a Bubble Coat and you don't even have weakness. Me thinks this card will see tons of play.
    Anybody that complains about G&G variants after LA needs to go back to poke school.

    Dialga (IFDS)
    Poke-Power: Return Time
    You can use this Power once during your turn, when you play this card from your hand onto your Bench. Choose up to 3 in any combination of Pokemon cards (excluding Pokemon LV.X) and Basic Energy cards from your discard pile and show them to your opponent. Then, return the chosen cards to the top of your deck in any order.

    That would be a decent combo, if you could pick it back up and put it back down every turn.

    It could go well with some sort of Claydol or Chatot engine. But it would work best if we got a wy to Level Up on the bench...

    Evoluter
    Attaches a evolved pokemon, it takes the place of an attack but so what. I just wonder if that would be an illegal leveling, I can't see how though as the tech machine is doing the evolution not the player.

    Some of the LvX in this set don"t say attach this "X pokemon" to your active "X pokemon" either way I'd rather have it active to start kicking some pokes around.

    I can't imagine ever playing it.

    ^^But still, it's good anyways. I can't see it getting no energy in your average senario, and you can get 2 or 3 when lucky.
    ^I sure can.

    But I have to say, this card would have been brutal with Mantine delta.

    This is the best LvX I have ever seen, Using up all your supporters and upthrow to bring back energys back in your deck by using something like felicity's. With all your supporters used, Hard Crush can do 250 because the energy in your deck will be so high.

    But I don't want to play this against Empoleon MD with full bench.

    Might be a good tech in Kingdra. Late game, heavy damage, refuel aqua stream.

    It's essentially a stage 4 card. You don't use a LvX as TecH unless you're already running that line in your deck.

    I can just see this being run with Porygon2, not necessarily PorygonZ. Just load your deck with Supporters, and then use the Porygons to bring up a Rhyperior quickly, it shouldn't be too difficult. Plus, with DP1 Rhyperior, you don't really have to worry too much about your opponent popping you before you get something going.

    The only drawback to me is that it would be impossible to retreat, but who would want to Reatreat with this MONSTER??? Icredible power! @[email protected]

    The Rhyperior Lv.X/Dialga IFDS combo will form the basis of one of the BDIFs. Its simply ridiculous.
