Re: May Gym Challenge Pack contents fully revealed: Krookodile-EX, Tyrunt, Enhanced H

There are only two cards here that really stand out to me. One is that "Trickery Coin" ("Foul Play Coin" seems like an unlikely translation here). It seems like a neat way to replace Fliptini, though it takes the Tool slot so its holder can't wield a Muscle Band or something else. Still, probably better than occupying a space on the Bench with an easy Prize.

The second card that caught my eye is... ENHANCED HAMMER. Why did that infernal card have to be reprinted? It and Crushing Hammer can go die in a fire somewhere, as far as I'm concerned.

We chose 'Foul Play Coin' because it is exactly matches the Japanese name for the game move Foul Play.

@Maverick Nate; I'm aware of that. It still seems like an awkward translation here, though.
