Ratings are based
on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst. 3 ... average.
5 is the highest rating.
Hm, when will we ever see another 120HP Chansey with one Retreat
Bind Wound is pretty good as it can also heal your bench Pokemon.
90HP is quite high so it can take quite a beating. You can also
heal Chansey to make it last longer.
Dogpile is interesting. At first glance it looks like Wiggly's Do
The Wave. Then, we noticed how inferior it is. First of all, the
max damage it can do it only 50 damage for 3 Energies. That's
pretty good. However, Chansey would then do 50 to itself. You can
reduce the self-damage by having an Unown N on your bench.
In Unlimited, it's definitely not as good as Wiggly. If you want
to play a good Chansey, play the Base Set version and the combo
with Metal Energy and UnownN.
In Modified, there are better Pokemon that does more damage with 3
energies. If Psychic gets really popular though, this Chansey
might be more playable.
In Draft, a very high pick! High HP, heals your Pokemon, AND can
deal a decent amount of damage when needed. Plus, it's splashable
in every decks.
Unlimited Rating: 2.3/5
Modified Rating: 2.5/5
Draft Rating: 4/5
We once again have a new Chansey card. But still, this one does
not measure up to the original.
It's first attack (bind wound) is based on a flip and isn't that
great even with the heads. Although, it's nice in conjunction with
the second attack, it just won't cut it.
Unlimited has much better options like Wigglytuff or base Chansey.
Attack number 2 (dogpile) is nifty. Some would say it is the
Wigglytuff of new Modified. The most it will do is 50, and then
you would do 50 to yourself. It is average, especially since there
in no DCE allowed in the Modified formats.
If you are running a Blissey deck, this would be the Chansey to
use. Besides, there are ways around the self damage (Unown N, Gold
Berry, Evolving to Blissey, Metal energy).
This card is decent in draft, but you will on average get to do
the second attack once before being knocked out because of low
trainer counts allowing you to heal your Chansey.
All around, it is an ALMOST average card.
Modified- 3 (it is your best card for evolving to Blissey)
