Celestial Storm will be coming out August 3rd,2018. Thoughts on the cards and will they possible have a meta impact? http://www.pokebeach.com/2018/07/full-celestial-storm-english-set-list

 

So far these seemed to be the hyped and most interesting cards.

This has very high potential due to its ability being able to recycle 5 energies from the discard pile and attaching them to any Pokemon you control with its Gx attacking having very good synergy with its ability.

A reprint of a old card from the Aquapolis set. Its ability is a Gust of Wind expect you need to flip heads for it to work the only major downside is it takes up space and most decks will prefer Guzma over this.

Is currently being hyped as a good card for Vikabulu and good by itself due to its energy acceleration ability.It also works well with Latias Prism.

Has synergy with Ray Gx and potential in other decks that use Dragons.

Very easy to search for with Alolan Rattata's [.] Call Boss that add it to the hand. The first attack with a Choice band can notably KO a Dawn Wings Necrozma. Its Gx attack is a really good item searcher that has synergy with Puzzle of Time and Missing Clover. The only thing holding it back is Buzzwole Gx and Garbodor (BKP #57).

Its Gx attacking reveal 13 cards effect can be devastating since you have a possibility of discarding Pokemon from your opponent's deck and then dealing 60 damage for each one.

hot take: this set is mostly trash

 

Acro bike is very nice, ray is solid too but is a very risky pick in a format without Vs Seeker. Latias prism is nuts for the ray deck. Copycat is obviously great after rotation and good against Zoroark. Magcargo is borderline broken in Zoroark and may well be the best card in the set. Banette is also very very cool and if Zoroark didn't exist I'd be much more excited for it, but you have to find an answer to that. Maybe baby Buzz + rainbows?

 

Electrode sucks, you give up 2 Prizes and it can't attach to GXs. Raticate GX is outclassed by baby Raticate if you want a DWN killer and it's pretty mediocre otherwise while things like N, Judge etc exist. Victreebel is a stage 2 with a coinflip effect.

 

There are a few other cool cards (Stakataka) but not a huge number.

Rayquaza seems like a really powerful snowball type of deck but looks kind of fragile, especially Post rotation.

Could see Shiftry GX doing well with the right partner.

Magcargo and Swampert are probably the best cards in the set. 

Banette-GX looks underwhelming but I feel like it might end up being better than it looks, especially since you can just run the line with Rainbow Energy alongside Zoroark to cover Buzzwole.

Skakataka-GX is solid.

 

It really is amazing how many bad cards they can manage to fit into these sets though

Espeon EX is rotating too, so there goes the spread + devolve thing

 

Or just be good and draw Field Blower / your own stadium

You can probably just replace espeon with necrozma and have black ray and/or baby lele rearranging counters as your wincons - you're able to put out enough damage that you can actually just kill things instead of needing to devolve them

The amount of packs you have to trade for a Rayquaza-GX right now is absurd. I know the set just came out and it will go down but damn a RA goes for like 22 packs.

 

Magcargo might be my new fav card though he's awesome.
