MILOTIC– Let me start out by saying
that this card is my absolute favorite artwork in the game right
now out of every English set that I have seen thus far. This
card was really good before Feebas’ Ascension was errated to
include a flip to coincide with the Japanese version. It’s still
good with its Poke-power, but the errated ruling has made it a
