Dallas Dalton Flareon

Hello everyone, I'm new to the CotD crew and happy to be here. My name is Dallas Dalton and many of you may recognize my screen name on the pokegym and on other sites as "Strike". Currently I'm not playing in the tournament scene due to college but I do feel that my veteran experience can be more than enough to make a fair review for cards.

Anyways, let's get onto the card for the day, Flareon. Personally, I have never seen anyone put any flareon from any set to good use in a competitive enviroment except for limited. Why? Becuase the flareons are just that bad, and this one is no exception.

A stage 1, 70 hp pokemon certainly isn't very appealing to many players hoping that its attacks will make up for the lower hp. Attacks like delta search and return burn unfortuantely don't really provide much to offset the low hp and stage 1 status that flareon has.

Delta Search does look interesting since holon energies are the new rage thanks to delta species, but to my knowledge there isn't any card that can take advantage of the holon searching ability of Delta attack.

Return Burn would be nice if you didn't have to return the energy back. While returning the energy to the hand is optional 50 damage for a fire, metal, and colorless won't cut it in the metagame.

Unlimited- 1.5/5 - An easy prize for your opponent.

Modified- 2/5 - sure, let's burn them why not? It'll set you back an energy to the hand, then they'll knock flareon out easily with 1-2 attacks. Not worth using here.

Limited- 2/5 - If return burn didn't have a special energy requirement then flareon wouldn't be bad at all. too bad.

Hey all,

Today's card is Flareon from Delta Species

Well, quickness is definitely on this guy's side. Eevee is always a quick evolver, but with delta search, he's up and running turn two. Being able to do 50 and burned is nice and so is the metal energy effects... but you have to remember what league you're in. Unlimited Pokes will still eat this guy alive. Period.

Unlimited Rating 1.5/5
