The new set in town, Vivid Voltage, is finally upon us! In the 4th set of the Sword & Shield era, V & VMAX Pokemon are still running rampant and getting stronger with each new look. Some VMAX cards to highlight from this set include Coalossal VMAX, Pikachu VMAX, and a card that is often overlooked, Togekiss VMAX. First, Coalossal VMAX is that big fighting type Pokemon we have all been waiting for. It has established chemistry with the older stage 2 Coalossal card that attaches energy from the discard pile, and help from its new friend, the supporter card Leon which adds an extra 30 damage to attacks, and then Coalossal VMAX becomes a big contender in the standard format. What makes fighting types so strong is their ability to very easily handle big decks such as Pikachu & Zekrom GX, and Eternatus VMAX, while also being able to hit the basic 240 damage. With damage boosts such as Leon and Zigzagoon, Coalossal VMAX can also one shot the other big tag teams in the meta. Another very exciting VMAX to take a look at is Pikachu VMAX! Pikachu VMAX is a great lightning type card that can hit for a hard 270 damage with enough energy on it. Pikachu & Zekrom is a very prominent deck in the scene, so having access to Pikachu VMAX as a big finisher for Pikarom is going to help out the deck a lot. The last amazing VMAX from this set is Togekiss VMAX. Togekiss VMAX is one of those decks that tries to 2-shot everything and search for cards to control your opponent or heal using it’s Max Glide attack. Max Glide does 120 base damage and allows you to search for 2 cards out of your deck. Those 2 cards could be control cards such as Reset Stamp, Power Plant, Crushing Hammer, or Team Yell Grunt, or some healing cards such as Mallow and Lana. You can also boost Togekiss VMAX’s attack using the special colorless energy from the previous set that boosts it by 20 for each one attached to make sure you can reach that two shot damage. Some amazing new one prize Pokemon introduced in this set are Snorlax, Jirachi, and Charizard. Snorlax and Jirachi are brand new support Pokemon that are used for their abilities when in the active spot. Snorlax’s ability is the same effect as Tropical Beach if it is in the active spot, which allows you to draw until you have 7 cards in your hand at the cost of ending your turn. Jirachi, on the other hand, allows you to look at the top two cards of your deck, decide on one card to put into your hand, and put the other back on top. Finally, what would a Pokemon TCG set be without a very powerful Charizard? This version of Charizard is a stage 2 with 170 HP that has an ability that allows you to look at the top 3 cards of your deck, pick one, and then discard the rest. One top of that, it’s attack for 2 fire energy does 100+ 50 more damage for each “Leon” supporter card in the discard pile. With the usage of a 4th Leon, you can hit up to 330 damage for a small energy cost!
