Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day


 

Crobat - EX Hidden Legends


Date Reviewed: 7.06.04

Ratings & Reviews below

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  
5 is the highest rating.

Thundachu Crobat (Hidden Legends)

Overview: In my opinion, the Crobat from Neo 3 is the best of them all, but lets see how this one stands up to it. For 1 colorless energy, Flutter Attack does 20 damage automaticly, which is nice, then you get to flip a coin. Flip heads and you get a look at your opponent's hand(not ever a bad thing), and choose a card to discard. Meaning syonara to a Blaze ex or Rare Candy or Ancient TM Rock, etc. Then for 1 grass and 1 colorless, Triple Poison does not only 10 damage automaticly, then it also poisons the defending Pokemon and between turns, defending Pokemon takes 30 instead of 10. Very nice indeed. Weakness to psychic makes Gardevoir a problem in Modified, and Crobat really wouldn't stand a chance against Crobat. No retreat cost is nice for a stage 2 and the 90HP is a nice touch as well.

Unlimited: There are better ones out there, and it takes too much time to get up and ready. If playing in Unlimited, I highly suggest playing Crobat Neo 3 instead. 2/5

Modified: Triple poison is nice for eliminating Pokemon powers like Delcatty's Energy Draw, and Flutter Attack gives you a nice advantage to discard any card from your opponent's hand. I'd play it. 4/5

Draft: The high HP, free retreat, and automatic poison is great in Draft, plus discarding any card from your opponent's hand is pwnage and could possibly ruin your whole game in Draft. The only problem I have against it, is that it's a stage 2, but if you can manage getting Zubat, Golbat and this, I highly suggest playing it. 3/5

Sealed Deck: I didn't see very many of these drafted at the Hidden Legends prerelease, but lots of people did get Zubat, very few Golbat. I say if you can get it, play it. 2.5/5

If only Random was here today…. ;D

Crobat is icky like this font, he just keeps using triple poison and making the game slimy

:P Regardless, that does put it well. Triple poison is devastating. And with Gorebyss, Bannette, DRE, and tons of Mirage Stadiums/Nurses, the game gets mighty hard to win for your opponent.
 
Johnny Blaze Crobat – I saw quite of few of these things flying around at Pokemon Nationals teamed up with Gorebyss. Did it do that well? A friend of mine’s deck just missed making the Top 16 in the 15+ by miniscule percentage points.

Flutter Trick is pretty decent for only 1C. It does 20 damage and then you get to flip and on a heads look at your opponents hand and discard a card. Let me tell you if Heads keep on getting flipped like it did against me then there goes my draw power 1 turn and the that Switch to get out of the next attack:

Triple Poison looks real good for only 1 G and 1C. Instead of 10 points of poison damage it will actually deliver 30 at the end of each turn. Nothing at all to sneeze at.

One of the main reason that this card does not see major play is because of its weakness. Psychic is a major force to be reckoned with and there is just so many times that this deck will beat a Psychic deck consistently.

Unlimited: 3/5 Might be an interesting card to play teamed up with Breeder. Any hand disruption is great and with low energy costs this card is not very prone to ER. Psychic is not that big in Unlimited and teamed up with Mirage Stadium or Rocket’s Training Gym your opponent will have a difficult time retreating.

Modified: 3/5 As mentioned before all the Psychic decks mainly Gardy gives Crobat a hard time. With a decent start this deck can beat psychic.

Limited: 3/5 Disruption is real good here and with the limited amount of healing if you can pull off drafting all the basics and Stage 1 then this will be hard to beat.

Set: Hidden Legends

Single Modified: 4/5 Everybody loves this thing. Crobat/Gorebyss is a popular and good deck. I just get the sneaking suspicion that it is overrated though. Triple Poison is great, as is Flutter Trick. And it gets played with a great Anti(in this case) card, the infamous Gorebyss. So, not bad, I guess.

Team Modified: 3.25/5 Remember how I gave Corsola +.75 in Team? This thing gets a -.75 in team. Why? Poison is alot worse in Team. That's why. It's still a good deck, I guess...

Single Limited: 4/5 You're lucky to be able to get this thing out in limited. It would be a better rating then modified, but you really need Gorebyss to back this thing up, and that's harder to get as well.

Team Limited: 3.25/5 You know my reasoning.

Single Mutant Modified: 2.75/5 Why is it worse? Because Blaze is a heck lot easier to get out and burninate you with. Wait, it's weak to psychic? Change the Blaze to Garde/Metagross then =/ .

Team Mutant Modified: 2/5 Yuuup.

Single Mutant Limited: 3/5 Same as my reasoning on the non-mutant categories, more deadly but harder to get out balance eachother out. Fortunately for the little Crobat, Garde is no longer a threat, so it raises by .25

Team Mutant Limited: 2.25/5 If you think I need an explanation, let's just say you're what the japanese people call a "baka".

Total Score: 3.0625 Wow, it averaged out nicely. So much for that Uber Overrated Crobat you all know, huh? "Averaging: The Anti-Uber Factor."
