While basically inferior to Dugtrio d, which prevents damage
done to any of your benched Pokemon by opponents' attacks
and has better attacks, Cloyster d has the small bonus of
fitting better into decks that run the Holon Engine
(Holon's Castform/Holon Transceiver/Holon Mentor), as
Shellder d and Cloyster d give you a card for Delta Draw.
While its attacks are awful, Cloyster d's main purpose would
be to protect decks that are vulnerable to Raichu d's Zzzap
attack. Unfortunately, decks playing Raichu d, like the
popular Delta (Raichu d/Exeggutor d) also tend to
play Cessation Crystal, which would negate Cloyster's
Because of this, awful attacks, and the fact that Dugtrio
would replace it in any deck not focusing entirely on delta
Pokemon, Cloyster d is an overall
You have no Delta Pokemon to protect, and even if you did,
benched damage isn't popular. If your opponent wants to hit
something on the bench, they'll use Gust of Wind, or Feint
Attack, which would get through the Poke-Body anyway.
While their are some attacks that can hurt your bench,
Cloyster d isn't strong. While you generally will play any
evolution you have the basic for,
don't expect Cloyster d to win you many games. It's basic
and its attacks are both very weak.

Cloyster d is nice TecH in a Delta based deck if there are a
lot of bench hitting decks in your metagame. I'd actually
prefer Dugtrio over this card, as it has nice attacks, and
prevents bench damage to ALL of your Pokemon.
No reason to play this here. Delta Pokemon are weak in
Not bad in Metadrag to give you extra protection against
Raichu/Eggs. Not very good in any other deck though.
Very weak attack, and the Poke-Bodys not very useful here.
My name is Cloyster
I have a Solid Shell
I protect Delta Pokemon
So what the hell?
Unlimited: We don’t have any good Delta decks here so….
Rating : 1/5
Modified: We don’t really have any Hardcore Bench
Hitters and this thing is way to vulnerable to Rai-Eggs.
Rating : 1/5
Limited: Hmm considerable cause the set is almost
completely Delta. But it isn’t that good so…
Rating : 2/5
The only reason to play this card is to protect your
delta benched pokemon, other than that there really is
no use for this card.
