This is the second Dark Crobat. The first appeared in Neo
Destiny with none of it's pre-evolutions. They had been released
many sets earlier, in the original Team Rocket set. Because of
this, it was never playable in Modified format. Team Rocket had
already been rotated out.
This is an interesting card, but not strong enough to build a
deck around. You're going to be able to Poison just about
everything your opponent promotes to the Active slot, and that's
a pretty good thing to do. It's Dark Drain attack not only
spreads damage all over the field, but also keeps Dark Crobat
healthy. Unless your opponent can One Hit KO him, he can survive
a long time with this technique! Finally, he can also take out
that damaged heavy hitter that's hiding on the bench with Skill
Dive. Finally, it's 90 HP are very healthy for a Dark Pokemon.
It's not a powerhouse, but it is a card that gives you a chance
to use a little strategy and show off some skill.
90 Hp and its Black Beam Power is auto poison as long as Dark
Crobat is active. At 1st Dark Drain and Skill Dive don’t seem
like game breaking attacks but with a swarm of Crobats and a
resistance to Fighting this a Pokemon that has to be reckoned
with. Just watch out for its new weakness to Lightning.
Unlimited: 2/5 – It might not be enough to stab off Electabuzz
Modified: 3/5 – Don’t count this pesky bugger out. I have seen a
Dark Crobat deck make Top 4 at a City Championship and it was
very annoying to play against.
Limited: 4/5 – With such arrays of Attacks with its Power it is
a great pick if you are lucky enough to draft its basic and
pre-evolution. Plus it is a great looking card!
