Wish I could get an Astral Radiance booster box.
We did get some first 2x Astral Radiance packs this month but we are way behind with receiving releases.
My best cards were Basculegion Reverse Holo and a Magnemite Reverse Holo (Where the energy element is all over the card)

However last week i did draw a a Basic Kricketune V and Rainbow Colored Celebi V-Max. It's odd that it needs another type of Celebi to be used.

It needs another type of Celebi since VMAX cards are the TCGs way of incorporating the Dynamax, Gigantamax and Eternamax mechanics, you see.

Some of the Astral Radiance cards do look amazing such as a Garchomp with Cynthia as a basic card and you don't need Gible and Gabite to use it. Seeing full art iconic trainers compared to the original G1 gym leader expansion which were named with a just a mugshot is a fantastic idea.

Being "[Gym Leader]'s Pokémon" was more of a mechanic, the Trainer Gallery cards have no gameplay difference from their normal prints. Not that I am complaining. V cards are pretty nice, but there is always the catch that when they are knocked out, your opponent takes two prize cards.

Not as severe as GX-Cards and V-Max cards, those have a punishing 3 Prize Cards rule. Makes you have to save them in your hand or hope you don't use them early without a good defense.

Hm. I remember that the Pokémon-GX rule says two prize cards, not three. Checks binder Yeah, you're thinkin' of Tag Team GX cards.

Anyhow, I am gonna go to Outland afterschool to buy some Astral Radiance packs.

Got a amazing find while exploring my local hobby-store that had a big sale. Bought a Flareon GX tin. The biggest finds were Flareon GX, Malamar V and lastly A CHARIZARD V (NOT RAINBOW OR VMAX) insert favorite victory or party tune

Flareon GX itself is great and has good synergy with Charizard's V strongest move which discards 3 energy cards. But if he gets KO'd then you can time the Power Burner GX for some payback. Power Burner GX get 20x damage for each energy card in the pile but only once.

I don't collect physical cards anymore but I play TCGO. God, I want those vstar cards sooo bad. They're so powerful despite only taking 2 prize cards when you beat them, instead of 3 like tag team, it feels like a power creep thing.

I'm in the process of updating all of my decks (one for each type), and may buy some codes on ebay again (which seem...cheaper lately? maybe because tcg live is coming out soon and people want to sell the codes while they can? lol) to try and snag a vstar or two.
