Last week, on my way back home from a fun evening at mystery rooms in bangalore, I was discussing with my friend how a Pokémon-themed escape room would make all ‘90s babies freak out. The vast universe of Pokémon has already seen resurrections in the forms of several different games, the Pokémon Trading Card Game being the most recent of them all. Amongst all, the psychic Pokémon has fast become known for their fantastic abilities.

Using this technique, the Pokémon looks in your deck for energy only to attack each of your benched Pokémon at the cost of one energy.

The second attack, called Acid Spray, causes damage of 70, disrupts the play, and discards an Energy Card from the opponent. With that being said, there is hardly any doubt why this card is a must for your Pokémon psychic adventures!

Using this, you can cause your opponent 50 damage for each of the trainer cards. Since there is a trainer card in every deck, you are bound to cause some damage with this card! Especially as most players tend to get rid of their trainer cards during the start of the game, it is your best time to shock them with your GX card.
