VS Seeker is a very good.  You can reuse any supporter.  So it's like having a Steven's Advice, TV Reporter, Oak's Research, all in the power of 1 card.
 
Unlimited - It's called "Item Finder". 1/5
 
Modified - Pretty good here.  Recyclable Brineys and such. 4/5
 
Limited - Good only if you got any supporters in the first place, but draw is good. 4/5

VS Seeker is a card that people have been waiting for since the beginning of Modified Format when Item Finder was no longer allowed in most Premeire events! Finally a Trainer that will get other Trainers out of the discard pile. Now, it is limited to only pulling Supporters, but on the other hand, it has no cost. Overall, I expect this card to be very popular.

Unlimited: Normally, new cards don't match up to the older, overpowered Trainers. In this case, I think VS Seeker could find a place in some Unlimited decks that rely on some supporters. It's not as flexible as Item Finder, but the lack of a cost helps make up for that. 3.5/5

Modified: This will be a staple. Many of the deck engine Trainers are Supporters. This will allow much more flexiblity in their use. 4.75/5

Limited: Any Trainer is a top pick in Limited, and a Trainer that lets you bring back another Trainer such as Celio's Network or Prof Oak's Research? No question about it. 5.0/5

VS Seeker – I still cant get over that picture. It reminds me of a computer mouse. We need a lot more recursion in Pokemon and this fits in well with the Recursion theme. Recursion in TCG lingo is basically getting the best use out of your discard pile over and over again. This is what VS Seeker is for.

Unlimited: 2/5 – Basically for Trainer recursion Item Finder is the way to go here. Sure you have to discard 2 cards from your hand but you can get any trainer, not just a Supporter. If your deck is Supporter heavy in Unlimited for some reason, then use 4 VS. Seekers. But I suggest Item Finder over VS. Seeker.

Modified: 3/5 – With the ever lack of recursion in Modified why didn’t I score this higher? Well for 1 there is this nasty little deck that is running around in my area that is called Vileplume Ex. If it becomes real popular then Vs. Seeker is simply not worth it. With Vileplume EX your opponent cant play non-supporters which VS. Seeker is. You are better off playing the full line of 4 Oak’s Research for example. Another reason is that if you run 4 VS. Seekers over your regular supporters, I can guarantee that you are going to start with at least 2 VS. Seekers and no Supporters. That is the downside tot his card.

The upside is that you can re-use your supporters over and if you plan on teching in 1 or 2 Supporters and want to reuse them later on then definitely play VS. Seeker.

Limited: 4/5 – If you are lucky enough to pull one of the popular Supporters here and VS. Seeker then you are in luck. If you don’t pull any worthy supporters, then VS. Seeker would basically be useless to play.
