Do you think EX cards were bad for Pokémon TCG and do you think GX cards made up for it by bringing evolutions back into the spotlight?


Maybe a few sets were overpowered, but when properly balanced, I'm in favor of both EX and GX cards. Sometimes it seems EX dominates the spotlight, but they're available to just about any deck (so you can use them too). Additionally, some cards like Beautifly from the Roaring Skies set work as anti-EX measures; in this case, they're completely immune to damage from EX Pokemon!

After all, if a trading card game never innovates, fans often grow tired of the same old rote, and I'm glad EX and GX were introduced.
