See yesterday's rant about Jungle-not-Dark.

In unlimited, Flareon was(back in the day), compared to Arcanine and Ninetales. However, it lost the battle, and spent the rest of it's time in binders a newbie decks. It stays there today. 1.9/5

In modified, it has another chance to prove itself. However, I don't think it's big enough for Big Fire(boy, what a creative archetype name, isn't it?), or fast enough to go solo. Once again, it gets rocked by Arcanine, Ninetales, and -- this time around -- Magcargo. Can't win them all. 2/5 In limited, if you can't find Arcanine, this makes for a pretty bad substitute. It's rare, meaning unlikely to get more than 1, it's HP is lower, it's attack costs more(or the same, but does less damage), and it's just pretty lame overall. 2.5/5

Thursday: Flareon

     This guy is decent, but expensive. HP is doable. Quick attack, again, nice. Flamethrower is decent as it does 60, but would be better at the magic number of 70. I don't think 4 energy is very cheap. Weak to water, which is somewhat not a big deal anymore. Retreat of 1. Decent card.

Standard Rating: 3/5
Modified Rating: 2/5
Draft Rating: 4/5

Croconaw88 Thursday: Flareon

flareon cant do much in standard with so much ER and SER. Another quick attack -_-. 1 in retreat is normal. =\ 

Fire is good in Modified but there are better choices like Ninetails or Magcargo. Flareon/Typhosion could be a good deck in Modified. Again 70 HP is low for MF. As for Draft it can do 60 a turn very powerfull.=/

Standard 2/5 
Modified 2.8/5
Draft 3/5

BigChuck01 Flareon

This card is a lot like Jolteon.  A 70 HP stage 1 with Quick Attack and a decent 2nd attack.  The thing I remember most about this card is when I was playing in a tournament, Ness stuck this on the top of my deck.  I drew it and I was like !!!!!! =P. Flame Thrower is cool because it gets the OHKO on Sneasel, but Removal is too much for this guy.  3/5

In Modified, it's bad.  If you're going to play fire in Modified, stick with Magcargo, Arcanine, Typhlosian, and Ninetails.  2/5

In draft, this thing can be a beast if it gets going.  60 damage will KO most things fast.  Just watch out for water.  3.5/5

Flareon - Much less of a card then it's relative Jolteon.  Same first attack, as do all of the jungle eeveelutions.  It's second attack isn't all too great costing 4 energy.  It can take a DCE in addition to it's double colored cost but still, it is a weak pokemon when it stands up to fire.  I would rather play Arcanine, Magcargo, Ninetails, Blaine's Arcanine, Entei, and Typhlosion as a fire pokemon. 
 
Unlimited: 1/5

Draft: 3/5
Vaporeon - An even weaker relative to Jolteon and Flareon.  In unlimited it dies to Rocket's Zapdos and Electabuzz.  Modified see's play of much better water pokemon.. Dark Blastoise, Kingdra, Feraligator.  It's attack does 30 for WW1, 40 for WWW1, 50 for WWWW1.  A very weak form of water gun.
