Post Rotation Playables

Zach categorized Ultra Prism - Unbroken Bonds in this post rotation article!

07/04/2019 by Zach Lesage

A World Without Zoroark!

Can you imagine it? Tapu Lele GX (GRI; 60)  is no more! Your opponent can’t use Marshadow (SLG; 45)  on the first turn of the game... even better, they can’t use Marshadow (SLG; 45)  at all. You don’t hear Trade, Trade, Trade... Oh yeah, Zoroark GX (SLG; 53)  is gone too. Well, your boy here, Zach Lesage, has the lowdown for all of your 60 Cards readers. In my last article I showcased the cards that we lost in our Rotation, but this list has all of the cards you should know about in our new Ultra Prism - Unbroken Bonds metagame! Peep out the list below to learn which cards are strong and which cards you should pick up! Trust me on this one.

The New Metagame

Similar to my last article, which you can view HERE, I wanted to categorize cards for you to make your life easier. This list doesn’t include Unified Minds because that is coming up in my next artilce, so keep your eyes peeled for a future article from me that will have a compiled list from that set. Oh by the way, some of the cards on this list will appear a few times if they  have multiple functions so don’t worry if you see a card twice. Enjoy!

Around the Corner

That’s it for today. In my next article, I will showcase a similar list of cards that will showcase cards from the official Unified Minds set list to help expedite your testing process. After I release that article, I will start releasing decks that I have been testing in this new format. My goal is to make sure that all 60 Cards readers are prepared for Worlds and the DC Open (which should be announced soon). As for me, I will be testing everyday for Worlds in an effort to have my best finish at Worlds yet! This season has been an amazing year for me in terms of Pokémon, life, and growth as a person. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for me and I hope that you are all there for the ride! If you want to see more of my journey, follow me on my social media:

Twitch: zlesagepokemon

Twitter: zlesagepokemon

Facebook: Zach Lesage

Youtube: Rare Candy

I also have open slots for coaching so if you are interested, please reach out to me on Twitter or Facebook.

Thanks,

Zach Lesage
