isn't this impossible

It's a two-swap of corners and a four-cycle of edges. The reason it's so unfamiliar is that usually it's looked at from a different AUF. If you move the U layer in this case, it's just an A perm.

I just got my gan 356x, and it's amazing compared to my cubes from 2016!
Anyway since it's stickerless, I noticed that I can actually see the colors in the back when lighting is good and I tilt the cube slightly forward. Never used that to my advantage, but isn't that a concern with WCA rules?

It used to be an issue, but in July 2015 the WCA realized that it can't be easily used to one's advantage, so the regs now allow stickerless cubes. Its all good

I don't know how to explain it any better. You asked if it's a swap of two corners. Which is correct.
Its a swap of 2 corners AND 4 edges, making it just a 3 corner swap if you do a U or U'

oh that makes a lot more sence thanks!

so on 3x3 using CFOP the cross can always be made in 8 moves or less. on 2x2 a face can be made in 5 move or less, so when solving 3x3 with roux how many moves should first block take?

There is a post on the Wiki about First 2 Blocks, and the average length to Solve F2B is about 20, so that should mean 1st Block should be able to be solved in about 10 Moves or less.

Can anyone tell me what is nikalas and anti nikalas??

They're algorithms.
Niklas: R U' L' U R' U' L
Ani-Niklas: Just the inverse of Niklas. L' U R U' L U R'

Niklas: R U' L' U R' U' L
Ani-Niklas: Just the inverse of Niklas. L' U R U' L U R'
Are they used in the Beginner method or something ?

Depending on the tutorial, yeah! Knowing the algs is also useful in more advanced methods too.

They are used in the Beginner Method, but you can also use it in subsets like COLL, CMLL, ZBLL, etc.
Here's an example with the Niklas being used in a COLL case: R U R' U (R U L' U R' U' L)

Probably not. I learnt it while using Petrus’ Last Layer system. He used it as a corner swapper, but it also does a Sune, so it’s one of the two algs that are actually viable in Sune COLLs. And Anti Niklas, well I hope you can guess that.

What order should I learn alg sets for CFCE? CLL/ELL first obviously, but then what? I was thinking maybe Summer Variation or OLLCP?

(Yes I know hardly any people use CFCE, but it's worth a shot)
