Garchomp ex SAR
Parasol Lady SR
What do you guys think of these cards? I think Gholdengo can be a great draw engine while also trying to attack with it. You can try to incorporate Eldegoss to have maximum damage potential most of the time. Hoopa ex, on the other hand, is a bit weird because it has Psychic-type weakness where we already know, it is very bad in the current format. I hope we get to see more of this card in action once we have more top-tier decks that rely on Pokemon that is weak to Fighting-type so Hoopa ex may get a chance to be played. We also get to see a bunch of secret rares starting from Garchomp ex Special Art Rare which was very cool and Parasol Lady where it may fetch quite a price in Japan.
