The ferocious Gyarados-GX appears in the Sun & Moon—Crimson Invasion expansion ready for serious brawl. Its Draconian Disaster attack is a particular monster, able to do 200 damage when a Stadium is in play. It also discards that Stadium card, no matter who played it, so be sure to weigh the options—is that extra damage worth discarding a helpful Stadium? (Of course, getting rid of a Stadium that’s good for your opponent is a nice bonus!) Then, use Gyarados-GX’s Dread Storm-GX attack to wash away an attached Energy from every one of your opponent’s Pokémon. And with an incredible 240 HP, Gyarados-GX can withstand strong return attacks so it can deliver another wave of its own.
Sock it to your opponents with the buff Buzzwole-GX and its three hard-hitting attacks! Start with a one-two combination using Jet Punch, which does 30 damage to the Active Pokémon and 30 to a Benched Pokémon for only one Fighting Energy. Then go in for the Knock Out with the 160-damage Knuckle Impact attack. And whether you’re going for a quick KO early in the match or you’re behind late, the Absorption-GX attack can dial up the damage depending on how many Prize cards you have left. Go full-contact with a tough trio of attacks from Buzzwole-GX!
The Ultra Beast Guzzlord-GX has a huge appetite—its Eat Sloppily attack gobbles up Energy from your deck. But all that Energy fuels two massive attacks, including Tyrannical Hole, which does 180 damage. And if you're really craving a win, Glutton-GX lets you pick up two extra Prize cards when you knock out a Pokémon—against a Pokémon-EX or Pokémon-GX, you could pick up four Prize cards in one bite!
Stand tall—really tall—with Alolan Exeggutor-GX! Its Tropical Head attack will certainly turn heads, as it can take aim at any of your opponent's Pokémon with virtually unlimited damage potential. Alolan Exeggutor-GX can also help your whole team with its Tower-Go-Round-GX attack, which not only delivers a head-spinning 180 damage—it also lets you move around Energy among your Pokémon in any way you like.
