    This is the fourth set for XY. The type for this set is psychic. The mascot of the set will be M-Gengar EX. It will be likely that we will receive an Aegislash EX this set. The set releases in japan on September 13th.

    It would be so cool if the set had Aegislash EX attack/defense form and the deck had the opposite form. I also am incredibly excited to see gengar EX FA

    Glad to see this set. I think we needed some more metal love as well with NO metal pokemon in the last set...

    What would be hilarious was if the GOOD EX was Pelipper.

    It's about time we got Gengar, hopefully PCL will abide by the unwritten rule that all Gengar's must be good (Yes, I know the first one sucked).

    I'm fully expecting it to be absolutely broken.

    Let's hope they make a stadium that only Gengar can use.

    They did, and wasn't that the "bad" Gengar?

    I thought Gengar prime was a great card.

    Gengar Prime was still an above average card, and it did especially well in Japan IIRC. And yeah, by the way PCL does things, M Gengar EX is probably going to be pretty OP.

    I'm pretty hyped for this set since it's focused on my favourite type (Ghost, not Psychic).

    Also, Phantom Gate kinda sounds like Phantom Force, so I'm really hoping that Mega Gengar's attack isn't one of those gimmicky attacks like Fly is (Flip if tails it fails if heads no damage next turn)

    Japan had a different format than us so Gengar Prime was more successful. What hurt Gengar Prime in the HGSS format was Junk Arm and a move towards all basic decks, and ways which is could be one shot.

    Japan had HGSS-on. Do you mean the MD-on format killed Gengar Prime or...?

    I just remember the insane hype around him.

    What if the Phantom Gate is the only known exit from the Lost Zone?

    Gengar EX is going to have a nasty weakness. As long as Yveltal EX is running around ringing a bell yelling "bring out yer dead" no attacking pokemon weak to dark has a chance. I doubt he will be forced to meet such a terrible fate. We could very well see the first Mega form with an Ability.

    baby_mario Doesn't even care

    When Lostgar was dominating in Japan, they were playing DP-on and had Claydol, making it much easier (and faster) to swarm Gengar. Also, they didn't delay the release of Lost World like they did over here.

    I'd like to think we won't ever see something as stupid as Fainting Spell again.
