Celestial Storm because that's when the first Mr. Mime GX was made, a funny but not actually usable card that wasn't really immune to damage with Magic Evens because one, Choice Band was in the format, and two, most Pokemon hit odd damage anyways.

XY- Flashfire

 

because of the EXs and the MEGAs who hit hard for too much energy. 

 

Wow this is fun :D.

As it said on the first page, only Sun and Moon Expansions will be possible answers.

Since you weren't aware @ripull125, I'll give you about 12-15 hrs to change your answer. If you can't meet that time frame, then I'll have to move on and announce the results. 😀

 

I've waited a bit too long already.

After thinking about it for a while last night, I'm pretty convinced its Reshiram & Zekrom GX from Cosmic Eclipse. They can do lots of damage but despite being overhyped when the set dropped aren't very competitive at all, and there's Fire Energy in the attack cost as well as some awesome flame art on the card(s).

Is it Lost Thunder?

I believe that Switch should have a place on the list of Standard staples. It's helpful in every deck as far as I can tell, and if Jirachi is considered a "staple", Switch definitely should be there too.
