    Anyone ever see this card get competitive play? I imagine a shuckle donk deck would be fun…

      Why not play Tyrogue? Or Sableye?

        I guess the intended use for the card here would be to deal grass type damage using fighting type energy. It isn’t weak to any of the things fighting is usually weak to, which means that it can be a boon to fighting type decks in limited. This allows you to hit flyers , and allows you to deal Super Effective damage against many of the water types that might beat fighting type pokemon.

        All that being said, this is one of the worst rare pokemon you could ever draw, ALMOST (but not quite ) reminiscent of the VS. set
