“Turn 1 you lose, your turn”
If you think that the background is merely a pretty colored fog, you are mistaken. It is actually an explosion she set off at a local poke mart, where Professor Oak, Erica, Bill, Steven (who was offering the others his much coveted advice) and N were purchasing Luxury Balls and Item Finders, as well as tickets to attend an event at the Chaos Gym.
Lass is in fact a pokemon-supremacist terrorist. How else would this innocent schoolgirl be able to single handedly clean every player’s hand of trainers?
The thing that scare me the most isn’t that Lass is a terrorist. I’m afraid of what N is plotting if he’s in Kanto.
How would you be able to come back from not having Trainers in your hand? It seems like that would be bad for you too much.
That’s why you play it when you don’t have any other trainers in your hand that you can use that turn. Not only was this card amazing when it was legal, its completely broken in Unlimited with Uxie.
Yes, but was there an Uxie at the time Lass was out?
I know you would play your Trainers, but if you didn’t have Trainers wouldn’t that screw you over?
How would it? You’ve put your opponent in the same situation. Sure, they get a chance to draw into one next turn, but that’s just it. You’ve put the game down to board position and top decks. Its definitely not a card you play every match.
I think there was a format where this and Cleffa Neo Genesis were legal at the same time. Good combo if you could get it off before your opponent.
Will Ghetsis become broken or not ?
To figure that out, we would probably want to figure out how many trainers the dominant decks in the metagame are running. Ghetsis’ inability to target supporters SERIOUSLY hurts it, as a lot of decks will use a substantial amount of supporters.
If you’re facing an opponent with 15 trainers in his deck, you’re “only” likely to knock out two trainers from their hand and draw two cards yourself against a seven card hand…that’s actually pretty good, but discard is not as useful against opponents with big hands and N is going to be far more consistent in getting you out of trouble spots. If your opponent is packing his deck with 25 or even 30 trainers, Ghetsis would be more viable than his son, and almost strictly better than Cheren…but how many decks currently load themselves with THAT many trainers?
In unlimited, its inability to target supporters, tools, and stadiums is seriously unnerving me, but unlimited doesn’t care much for tools, and trainers flood the decks. This could very well knock four cards out of their hand and load your own with four. That makes it VERY viable for unlimited decks, even if it’s just a one-of.
