Ratings are based
on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 being the worst. 3 ... average. 5 is the highest rating.
Background: Milotic is a Stage 1 Water type, with a
weakness to Lightning, no resistance, and requires 2
energy to retreat. 90 hp is pretty good for a non-EX
Surf (1 Colorless): 20 damage. Simple, effective, and
Super Hypno Wave (1 Water, 2 Colorless): 50 damage and a
flip for sleep. The attack speaks for itself.
Unlimited: 2/5: Quick to set up, but there are far
better water types to play out here.
Modified: 3/5: Better here, more of a filler in a
Milotic EX deck though rather than being a main hitter.
Limited: 3.5/5: In a format where Pokemon with cheap
attacks and high HP reign, Milotic is pretty good.
However, if you play it, beware of its pre-evolved form,
Feebas. With only 30 HP, it could be a bit hard to get
it to live long enough to evolve.
Scyther 21 is back, after having some computer problems.
But anyway I am back to do some reviews starting with
90 HP for a stage one pokemon that is not ex is very
good. Of course +10 HP would make it better but
Milotic's HP is not small, get that Feebas evolved as
soon as possible.
The first attack is Surf for 20 points of damage. This
attack is great second turn because of a solid 20 points
and also it can take any color of energy.
The second attack is Super Hypno Wave which deals 50
points of damage, with the a 50% chance of making the
opponent asleep (of course not counting the flip in
between turns). This attack is also easy to use only
costing one water energy and two of any type.
The bottom stats are expected; weakness to electric, no
restistance, and a retreat of two.
As the attack requirments show Milotic is extremely
splashable only requiring one water energy.
Unlimited: 1.7 there are faster and more powerful cards
Modified: 2.4 this pokemon is just not the strongest
thing out there, frankly the best it could hope for is
some form of tech in a rouge deck
Limited: 3.6 with only one specific energy requirment
this card can fit in any type of deck as long as it has
some level of water
Scyther 21 out
Milotic (EX: Emerald) #8/106
Hey folks. Hopefully everyone is having a good day.
Today’s card is Milotic from the set EX: Emerald. Let’s
Hit Points (HP) – 90HP is a little above average for a
stage 1 non-ex. I haven’t seen many with 100HP. This is
nice but again, not nice enough to save yourself from
weakness. When hit by weakness, 90 and 100HP don’t
really look different.
Attack 1 – Surf – 20 for [Colorless] isn’t bad, but kind
of lacking. I guess it’s not BAD, but not really good
Attack 2 – Super Hypno Wave – The attack does 50 damage
and flip a coin, if heads the defending pokemon is
asleep. 3 for 50 on non-ex’s is about average. The sleep
makes it a little better, but its nothing great to begin
Weakness – Electric – Yeah, that’s common. Zapdos is
popular and you have Dark Electrode in DragTrode (Dark
Dragonite/Dark Electrode) and Dark Ampharos in Rock-Lock
(Dark Ampharos/Pidgeot/Dark Tyranitar) as well as EX:
Hidden Legends Lanturn to worry about. Electric weakness
isn’t that good right now.
Resistance – None – Yeah, that’s common.
Retreat Cost – [Colorless] [Colorless] – It’s expected
because the pokemon is large.
- Surf is cheap.
- Super Hypno Wave is slightly better than the average
50 for 3.
- You can’t really combo this with anything.
- Weakness to electric isn’t that good right now.
- It’s attacks are dull.
Unlimited – 0/5 – I don’t see any reason to play this in
Modified – 1/5 – It’s not awful to the point where you
would want to burn it, but I see no reason to play it in
Limited – 3/5 – Hey, it has nice HP, a cheap first
attack, and a little above average second attack.
This was a dull card really. I hope everyone has a good
day. I’m out.

EX Emerald Milotic
A rather sub-par Milotic. Both Milotic ex from the same
set and Milotic from Hidden Legends are better than
this. It’s got 90HP, but both the aforementioned Milotic
cards have more. Its first attack does 20 for a
colorless, and its second attack does 50 with a 50%
chance of sleep for two colorless and a water. It’s got
a predictable weakness to lightning, and a retreat cost
of 2. Rather bland, if you ask me.
Unlimited: Don’t use it in Unlimited, unless you want to
get owned by basically anything that the opponent might
Modified: If you want to use a Milotic in Modified, do
everyone a favour and use Milotic ex or Milotic from
Hidden Legends, not this one. 1/5
Limited: Here it’s okay. It’s got pretty splashable
attacks, good HP, can deal quick, solid damage, and can
possibly inflict a special condition, which are all
attributes that are nice to have in this format. 3.5/5
