I just saw a scan list of the set on another thread and I was blown A-WAY! I couldnt believe the set, it was great. Dual types, fresh art, and new mechanics. I'd like to get other points of view. I think there are some great aspects to the new set. But, I am open to the idea that there could be some bad to the good. For example, the new dual types. They could be interpreted as blessings or curses. With the debut of the Team Aqua/Magma set, we're going to see the introduction of dual types. This is a pretty logical advance to the card game, much like dual weakness, and I'm suprised that it has taken this long for the introduction of dual types. I guess that lanturn from a ways back forshadowed this event. So, it's a pretty big change, these dual types. Does anyone think this is a step backwards for the game? I am willing to bet there are some people out there who dont like this move. For me, i think it is a nice, positive move. More strategy. But i can see the downside. It could make games impossible to win...or lose! The 3D art. I think it was amazing. At first when i read that there was going to be a large chunk of 3D art, I was a little saddened. I really like how they can draw pokémon to look so realistic. That's why i loved Sandstorm. Grade A art there, for sure. When i took a look at the art, my jaw dropped! It was great. Take a look at aron, you can see reflections in its coat, and look at poochyena, they are so...fuzzyrific! I was even floored by the logos in the artwork. The Team Aqua's Pokémons' logos (there's one somewhere in their art) are espescially impressive. And the backgrounds. Man there's so much it's overwhelming. But to bring this back...some people might not like the 3D look. Is there anyone who doesnt like the 3D look? I would definately like to hear someone's arguments against the art. One more thing, the frames are great. The dualtypes' face is smoothly handled. I'm a fan of symmetry in cards. So i really enjoyed how the Aqua/Magma mathced each other mechanically in different cards. How each Team hosed the other. Anyone not like the symmetry? Anyone? So, what do you think? Is the set good? Bad? Horrible? In case you didn't gather it, i give EX: Team Aqua and Team Magma two thumbs sky rocketing up. Feel free to further review the set here.
