I'll get right to the chase. This game requires no skill, so long as you have GX/EX pokemon.
Before "Ability", there were a number of pokemon that had Pokemon Power. It was a powerful addition to their move list, yet they were put on pause when they were asleep, confused or paralyzed.
Such is not the case now. Abilities can be used regardless of their status conditions, which is completely nonsensical.
If a basic pokemon with abilities was attacked using Spiritomb's Terrify, the former Pokemon can't attack whatsoever. The only move that you can do is retreat - and this should have been the case with status conditions (with exception to Poison).
I'll give an example: Leafeon GX is able to heal 50 hp even when it's asleep, confused and/or paralyzed. Therefore, a status condition is almost pointless, especially when there are some Pokemon with abilities to switch out the pokemon which may have a status condition, while being able to attack in the same turn. Since the beginning of the TCG, switching pokemon back to the bench removes all status conditions, so when you switch it back to the original pokemon, it is ready to fight again. With the existence of such overpowered cards, there needs to be an overhaul in the game mechanics.
Another pokemon to be mentioned is Palkia-EX. It has a move called Aqua Turbo which generates 2 water energy to a bench pokemon, even if its attack is nullified by an Alolan Ninetales. Before Palkia can fully be knocked out, the bench pokemon is ready to go to knock out Ninetales. To me, there is something very wrong there.
I propose a solution: Ban GX/EX cards from Standard and allow them in Expanded.
I understand how unpopular this opinion is and I'm more than willing to receive criticism for these viewpoints. I wish to hear some reasoning behind why people feel like the GX/EX pokemon are fair cards to use. They're clearly not.
