If you're planning on playing the new evolution Dragapult VMAX deck in standard, then you simply cannot skip this basic version of Dragapult V.
It's obviously not as strong as the VMAX evolution, but you absolutely need it for your combo. That is why the Dragapult V basic version will always follow its elder VMAX brother like a shadow.
This is an excellent marketing solution from The Pokemon Company, which basically makes you buy or sell two cards instead of one. This brings up the price on both, since nobody's going to play the basic V version on its own.
