Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day

 

Scizor EX

Unseen Forces

Date Reviewed: 09.12.05

Ratings & Reviews Summary
Unlimited: 2.50
Modified: 4.25
Limited: 4.50

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  5 is the highest rating.

Bullados Scizor ex

Attributes: 120 HP is very nice for a stage 1, even for an ex. Weakness to fire is not to great, as fire has always been and will always be a very popular type. Resistance to grass is resistance to nothing, as grass isn't really played much. Finally, the cheap retreat of 1, which should be paid with anything other than a Metal when being sent back to the bench.

Poke-BODY: "Danger Perception"
Considering that Scizor can take advantage of Metal energy, this is very nice. He can probably stay below 60 hp for at least a couple of turns before he meets his end, probably taking 1 or more of your opponent's Pokemon with him.

Attack #1: [MC] "Steel Wing"
A very respectable 40-for-2 attack made better by the massive defensive boost it gives. Scizor can probably stay alive for a VERY long time using this attack coupled with the natural Metal defensive, reducing up to 60 damage per turn, about what most mid-level attackers do these days.

Attack #2: [CCC] "Cross-Cut"
Starts at 50 for a Boost, and can do up to 120 damage. Normally, he'll do 80 damage, as most decks run at least 1 evolution as its main strategy. Also, he can be fully powered in a single turn with Boost, making this attack very fast.

Ratings

Unlimited: "Eat Me!!" Really, a two-prize KO with expensive attacks, even for the DCE Unlimited, is enough to throw up a couple of red flags. However, it does evolve from Scyther, one of the most playable cards ever in the format, giving it some moderate use.
2.5/5

Modified: Very fast, very powerful, and can be combined with several cards, not the least of which is Metagross. Turn 2 Scizor is being discussed as a potential tier 1 deck right now.
4.25/5

Limited: Scyther is very nice from this set, and evolutions are considered gold here. 50 damage for 3 NRG is powerful, and it's upgradeable to 120 based on easy requirements. I'd say a slam-dunk pick based on what you've pulled.
4.5/5
