Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day


 

Dual Ball - Team Magma vs Aqua


Date Reviewed: 6.15.04

Ratings & Reviews below

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

Ausen  Dual Ball

I personally don't like any of the balls. They're unreliable or don't do enough to justify using them. If you want to take a risk to help you set up without using supporters, go for it, but I'll take consistency over potential any day.

Unlimited 1/5

Modified 2/5

Draft 3.75/5

Dual Ball

 

 Dual Ball is an ok card… I always like Non-Supporter trainers, because there are so few, but friend ball is better than this.

 

Dual Ball is a flip. That’s not good. 2 flips however, that means you have a 75% chance of getting at least one basic. I s’pose that’s ok….

 

BUT THEN AGAIN……

 

 We do have a little card called Dunsparce. ;/

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

     So in the end, poor ol’ Dual Ball looses to faster, more plentiful, and more insured cards like Dunsparce, Wurmple, and maybe even Pokemon Fan Club. Of course, it looks like Dual Ball is going to stay with us (as all old and rather useless cards do) seeing as it was reprinted in Magma/Aqua.

^^^ The bottom line  ;o

Ralphy-
 
Dual Ball. What can I say? Other than that it is like two Pokeballs... almost. ...too bad almost only counts in horseshoes, and a number of other things that don't apply here.
 
Unlimited- This card most certainly doesn't apply here. Many cards are better than this, do I even need to list them? I will leave you with this though, Dual Ball can help with bench filling, but you didn't need me to tell you that, did you? 1.75/5 here.
 
Modified- A bit better here, potentially. Getting your big hitters out first gives you a huge advantage over your opponent. Doesn't it suck when you can't find the basics for you big hit. Well 25% of the time you get two basics, 50% of the time you get one, and 25% of the time you get, well, a potentially ripped card. I think a 2.5/5 fits live a glove, or sock.
 
Limited- Pick it, pick it good. You know the drill, trainers like this can most certainly be game breaking. Unless one of the other cards is an absolute, I must have this card, card, I suggest taking this. 3.25/5 here.
 
Johnny Blaze Dual Ball –
One of the worst of the balls out there. Too flippy. Simply there are better ways to search for Basics. The only upside that it is a Trainer and can be used after a Supporter. Unlimited (1/5): There is just so much more ways to search for basics. Too much draw power to even prove useful. With Cleffa, Trader, and other draw cards just a waste of space. Modified (2/5): Again too many better ways to get basics. Dunsparce, Wurmple from Dragons for Grass Basics, Wynaut, and now HL Igglybuff along with Pokemon Fan Club. All of these outshines Dual Ball. I have seen some people play it though in Modified. And like I said before it is a regular Trainer so that you can play it after a Supporter. Limited (3/5): It gets the highest ranking here. The gamble to get 2 basics on a coin flip in draft is pretty useful. Normally in draft you should have enough basics anyways.
