When using Brigette supporter card, how many basic GX should I search? Do I need to search only (1) considering it an Ex or (3) considering it as non-EX basic?

I have GX pokemons in my deck and don't know how many of them should I get with that supporter's effect.

    I don't know if there are more comprehensive rules anywhere, but from a quick search I couldn't see any indication that Gx count as Ex, so I think you'd search for 3.

In Pokémon, new game mechanics are introduced from time to time, but this does not mean that they need to interact or be somehow backward-compatible. For most of the time, they are separate.

Pokémon-GX is a different card to Pokémon-EX cards and thus you can find up to 3 Basic Pokémon including Pokémon-GX cards with Brigette.

  • This thing is awesomesauce! I just hope that they won't do any change in Brigette card's text or rules because of GXs. Hahaha xD

    To add an official source, this is confirmed on the Pokemon webpage at: pokemon.com/us/strategy/big-changes-in-pokemon-tcg-sunmoon "Things that specifically call out Pokémon-EX, such as Carbink's Safeguard Ability, do not apply to Pokémon-GX. That means you can use a Brigette Supporter card to search for three Basic Pokémon-GX and put them onto your Bench!"

Most GX cards are NOT basic, so Brigette is not going to be that helpful to you. Many GX cards are stage 1 or stage 2.

    Ignoring the premise of the question does not answer it. This is a comment on tactical choice, not an answer.

  • Good point - out of the initial 12 GX pokemon with Sun and Moon, only 3 are basic - Snorlax GX, Tauros GX and Lapras GX. There will likely be more basic GX pokemon in future sets.

  • It depends on the type of deck. Brigette is a good card for my 2 different decks.
