Professor Cozmo’s Discovery
You can play only one Supporter card each turn.
When you play this card, put it next to your Active
Pokémon. When your turn ends, discard this card.
Flip a coin. If heads, draw the bottom 3 cards of
your deck. If tails, draw the top 2 cards of your
This is a Supporter. Since Supporters are the back bone
of the game’s Trainer side right now, this means this
card must compete against fierce competition to see
play. Since you can only use a single Supporter per
turn, you want to run just the right amount: too many
and you will always have a bunch of “dead cards” in hand
after you use a Supporter. Too few and you aren’t
really optimizing your deck’s performance. After all,
you can’t “save up” your Supporter usages from turn to
turn. Like your normal Energy attachment from the hand
or your attack for the turn, either you use it, or you
This card fits into the “Bill+” (read as “Bill
Plus”) category. This card has two different drawing
effects, but you only get one, based on a flip of the
coin (or roll of the dice, etc.). If “heads”, you get
to draw 3 cards from the bottom of your deck.
This is a bit odd, and both creates and destroys some
combos. If “Tails”, you get to draw the top two cards,
which is less in amount, but easier to combo with. So
at worst, you get at least the effect of the Bill.
Since I am really not feeling so great, I am going to
have to be rather thrifty here. Drawing, in general is
very useful. Drawing two cards from the top of your
deck without having to lose any cards from hand, or mess
up your deck order, let’s you combine this with effect’s
like Smooth Over from the rarer version of Deoxys
Magcargo. If you flip Tails, you just scored a
double Computer Search. If you do get Heads, you
don’t mess up the top cards, so you can draw them later.
^_^ Otherwise, the only real thing is a 50% chance of
more or less negating a few effects seen in Modified
that let an opponent bottom deck a card of yours, like
Hidden Legends Shiftry.
1.5/5-No combo really worth it here, where you can play
Bill for the first effect reliably, and that
combined with Oracle would be a double
Computer Search. Discards from hand are more
manageable here, so between most other Supporters being
a better source for shuffle-less draw power and several
non-Supporter options, I just don’t see using it here.
3.5/5-Here, it is another story. For those who hate
shuffling away their hand or discarding, they have
something more reliable than Steven’s Advice.
The combos also matter slightly more here.
4.5/5-Draw. Power. In this set, few cards could top
this as a pull, especially on their own. There are a
Discovery won’t revolutionize the game, but it is
a nice addition that could be useful for potential
future combos, and it fits in a small niche as is.
