Does anyone else feel like this because I do:

 

Psychic Pokemon have always seemed to be way above all the other types, and especially now that more GX psychic Pokemon are coming out.

-Not only is it they are seriously overpowered, there seems to be SO MANY more overpowered psychic GX's! 

-Some of the move combinations you can pull off by using certain psychic GX's basically give that player a free win, it's making the game TOO EASY for them and TOO UNFAIR for others.

-And finally, some of the GX moves are ABSOLUTELY ridiculous; Symbiont GX that Nihilego can use is just absurd. Just giving your player 2 more prize cards shouldn't be a valid thing in this trading card game. From the start it sets back the player that suffers from this move too much, ruining the game! 

-Also dragon types are almost as bad with Dialga GX's timeless GX... 

 

Proposition:

-Reduce the power of these psychic GX's

-OR bring the massively suffering types (in my opinion: Grass, Fire, Fairy, Fighting) up to their standard. 

 

Essentially I think we should level the playing field. 

Thanks. I hope you agree.

I don't believe this to be true for the following reasons:

1. There are many other decks that are far superior to any psychic deck, such as night march Pokemon and most rotom decks.

2. That particular move "Symbiont GX" gives the opponent 2 extra prize cards which is equivalent to you taking 2 prize cards, something that many GX moves are capable of.

3. [Removed by Mod_RedDragon--please read forum rule #4]

I feel your entire argument should be negated due to your last statement.

This is unrelated, and unreasonable

-1 For the thread, which is more than pointless (although kudos for reminding how how bad Nihilego GX is. Dunno if it's the worst GX move at the moment, but certainly in the top 3 :D).


The shadows of the abyss are like the petals of a monstrous flower that shall blossom within the skull and expand the mind beyond what any man can bear, but whether it decays under the earth or above on green fields, or out to sea or in the very air, all shall come to revelation, and to revel, in the knowledge of the strangling fruit - and the hand of the sinner shall rejoice, for there is no sin in shadow or in light that the seeds of the dead cannot forgive...

Folks,

 

This is a friendly reminder to please be nice to each other. I fully believe that you guys can share opinions without attacking each other. Here is another reminder of the forum rules as well.

- Nihilego GX has seen no competitive tourney use so far, which says something
- Why in the world would you use the dragon Dialga GX when the metal one is superior in every way?

I believe Stinger GX is even worse, considering that your opponent gets the first hit and the GX user is not known to OHKO anything that isn't Buzzvole or Lucario

Oh please where do I even start. Basically every statement you have made was wrong. I disagree and please get better at the game and knowledge.

My apologies, I meant the metal type Dialga GX

Nihilego is a noob trap.

Just wanted to draw attention and slightly build on what Felidae_ is saying here.  Look at the first two people to post in this thread, and go to their profiles.  As I type, these accounts aren't even two days old.  It is possible that two newbies are just sniping at each other, but seems more like someone is just trolling.  Bad enough I'm "feeding the troll" by commenting at all, but we really should not take anything said by either of these two seriously.

 

Even if it turns out they each are two newbies passing in the night. ;)

Have you checked out the Play! Pokémon Rules & Resources page?  It is how I learned there are rules for 2-On-2, 30-Card, and Team Battle play!  Now if we can just get it on the PTCGO... http://forums.pokemontcg.com/topic/54673-adding-30-card-to-the-ptcgo/
