Togetic – Without it’s PokeBody, Holy Shield this would be another unplayable Togetic. The good news for all you Togepi/Togetic lovers is that this card is very playable and depending on your metagame a must have in your deck.

You see Holy Shield prevents all effects of attacks including Damage done to Togetic by your opponent’s pokemon that have Dark in its name. It is has a weakness to Lightning and resists Fighting types. Dive does 30 damage for 2 energy and Rainbow Moves is similar to Metronome with the biggest difference is that you can copy only Pokemon on your opponenets bench’s attack.

Unlimited: 2/5 – If more Pokemon with Dark in its name were played Togetic would be a force. As of now Togetic is nice as its resists Tyrogue but gets pwned by BS Electabuzz.

Modified: 3/5 – Definitely a staple in any deck whose metagame consists of Dark Pokemon such as Dark Electrode or Dark Dragonite. See the connection with this week’s reviews now? However Togetic would be much better if Holy Shield would shield against Dark Types such as Team Magma’s Groudon and Team Magma’s Claydol a staple in the World Championship Magma deck. With only 70 HP though it can stand enough from non-Dark decks to make a huge impact. More of a support or back-up Pokemon in this format.

Limited: 3.5/5 – Not bad here as the majority of Pokemon used do have Dark in their names. 2 for 30 is a great attack and Rainbow Moves can be a real headache to your opponent especially if Togetic is benefiting by Holy Shield.

Modified:
With Dark Dragonite, Dark Tyranitar, Dark Hypno, Dark Electrode and even more popular dark Pokémon being played, Togetic is clearly a tournament-viable card at the moment. It's Rainbow Moves attack will often force your opponent to avoid playing certain Pokémon on their bench, to your advantage. The only problem is that it is not a particularly strong Pokémon, and every deck that runs dark Pokémon has a way to deal with it. (Pidgeot, for example, can be used against it.) But, it still can put your opponent in a difficult situation, and often has several powerful attack options.
Rating: 4/5

Unlimited:
Too few Dark Pokémon are played in unlimited. This thing is simply knocked out by everything. The only good thing about it (which is actually more powerful than you'd think) is the fact that it's Rainbow Moves attack often has powerful options (like Neo: Genesis Sneasel's Beat Up attack). Unfortunately, it's three energy, but boost energy at least makes it something you could consider if for some reason your unlimited area was filled with Dark Pokémon.
Rating: 2/5 
 
Jaeger Today we are looking at Togetic from the EX Team Rocket Returns. First, a retreat cost of one is pretty cheap and the resistance to fighting will come in handy against all of the good fighting decks in this format. The weakness to electric isn’t going to be terrible, but the main electric’s you will probably run into are Magneton and Zapdos Ex, but there are others out there to watch for. As for the 70HP, it is about what you would expect for a Stage 1. Now on to the Poke-Power; this will help the most in draft, but there are some good dark decks out there such as Dark Tyranitar and Dark Dragonite. The first attack with two colorless for thirty damage seems about right. As for the second attack, it is kind of situational since sometimes you will get off great hits and a ton of damage and other times the opponent will have nothing on their bench worth copying. Also you sometimes will see cards that say you must discard a certain energy card; Blaziken and Blaziken Ex are a couple of examples of this. Probably the main downside of this card is that it has to be a benched Pokemon.

Bottom Line: I think if we see Boost Energy again, this card might have a shot in a couple of modified decks, but right now I think it’s just not good enough. You will probably see this occasionally in tournaments, but mainly this card you will see play in limited.

Unlimited 2.5/5; the fighting resistance would help out against Hitmonchan and Tyrogues, but also you will run into Electabuzz. You will probably see it mostly in copy decks along with Ditto and Clefable.

Modified 3/5

Limited 4.5/5
 
Drift None Togetic - TRR

Card of the day! woot indeed, though Togetic isnt much of a start for me I would say.(sorry about not making it to the other reviews! ^_^ )

HP is low, 70 for a stage 1? Never was good in the old days and its still not. Togetic would be stomped and laughed on by even the simple guys.
