Man, TPC must regret making sleep such a weak status. Dark Gengar makes me want to spike Full Heal Energy into all my Modified decks. 70-90 HP, evil power, and a good attack. Two retreat is semi-bad. No weakness is good. I won't even mention the combos, because everyone else will (coughmisdreavuscough).

In standard, it's actually not that bad. If only Slowking evolved from Rocket Drowzee... 3/5, an above average stage 2.

In modified, it hurts. But, people KNOW it hurts, and will be prepared for it, packing Double Gusts and Miracle Berries and whatnot. Still, it's strong. I give it a tentative 4/5. Used with Trainer Denial it can eat you with collard greens and fatback.

This is going to be Dark Master Trainer Mike's favorite card!

He's a Baby killer (can pull them up from the bench without having to do the Baby Flip and KO them in one shot), he has an automatic status and he makes Misdrevous a very scary card.

Still, he is too slow to be useful in Standard. He is a stage 2 and needs 3 energy cards for his attack. He will never last long enough to get used in that format.

Expect to see him in Modified. DMTM says not to even bother with Misdrevous, he doesn't need it.

This is not a good card to Draft, though. You'll never get the whole evolution chain going.

Standard: 2/5
Modified: 4/5
Draft: 2/5

Unbelievable. 2 sleep flips? I wonder how awesome this will be... definitely playable. Almost a reason to play Miracle Berry. It's attack is good as well.

Standard Rating: 3/5 - It's psychic... but its good.

Modified Rating: 4.5/5 - You can bet your bottom button that this will be archetyped. =D

Well, this card has been the buzz all over the Internet.
Well, its been combed with Misdrvius a lot to improve the chances of a KO.
I like the Pull In attack its a bit of a high cost but its a great baby killer.

Standard
Well its just not going to work well here to many Energy Removals, Switches and so on that its easily countered by most decks.
I give it a 3/5

Modified
Now here it can cause so problems I have yet to see a really good decks with it and until I do I keep the rating low.
I give it a 4/5

Limited
Well its a stage two but if you get it out its great.
I give it a 3.5/5
