Ahhhh...that never really gets old,
does it? I mean, it does, but never quite that old, you
Anyways, Here Comes Team Rocket! is
a Supporter card that's been printed a couple times, but
that's pretty much the only thing noteworthy. It's still
got the same effect as always, both players play with
their Prizes face-up for the rest of the game. This has
a bit of a double-edged sword effect; you get to find

your opponent. You'll know what they've got too...but so
In the end, it's a Supporter that's
a bit superfluous in the long run. Sure, it'd be nice if
you didn't have to reveal your side of it to your
opponent, but what kinds of stipulations would make this
card playable in terms of information revelation? Reveal
your opponent's but not your own? Or I guess look at
your own? Or exchange your hand with your Pri-oh, geez,
no, that's way too much.
In any case, Here Comes Team
Rocket! will always be one of those cards that works in
its own personal space but that won't see competitive
play if only because of what it does...that, and other
Supporters can do more for most deck strategies anyway.

it's neither here nor there rating)
Limited: 2.5/5 (really, it's hard
to say what use you'd get from this card that your
opponent WON'T get)
Arora Notealus:...Meowth, that's
