Dewgong d:
Modified:
While it's Poke-Body seems useful in a format filled with Delta Pokemon, it
really isn't. Not only is its weakness terrible, making Metanite (Dragonite

d/Metagross d) easily able to OHKO it, but Delta (Raichu d/Exeggutor d)
usually runs Cessation Crystal, allowing them an easy OHKO.

Surge is an average attack, having a nice bonus of getting +20 from any
Pokemon that has a Holon's Magneton/Electrode/Castform attached to it, and
being a good attack for Boost Energy, but like I said, the attack remains
average.

Putting average attacks on a card with a bad weakness and easily played
around Poke-Body leave you with nothing special.

Modified: 2/5

Unlimited:
Again, don't expect to see Delta Pokemon in unlimited. Compare Dewgong d to
Wigglytuff ex. Both have two attacks for identical energy costs. The
difference is Wigglytuff ex's attacks can OHKO Cleffa for two colorless, and
for three colorless, can hit for 90. Jungle Wigglytuff is also a good
comparison. Dewgong d is simply a horrible stage1.
Unimited: 1/5

Limited:
Dewgong d is a monster in limited. When most of your opponent's Pokemon are
delta Pokemon, there's no way of turning it's Poke-Body off, and Dewgong d
requires only colorless energy (making it fit in any deck), you have one of
the best limited cards in the set.
Limited: 5/5

Dewgong d

This card was designed for limited. It's Poke-Body reduces 40 damage from all other Delta Pokemon. This is huge when the entire metagame is based on weak Delta basics/stage 1s. This cards not very strong in Unlimited and Modified though :(.

Unlimited: 1/5
There are no Delta Pokemon here, so the Body's useless. The attacks are too mediocre to be useful.

Modified: 2/5
It would be huge against Raichu/Eggs if there was no Cessation Crystal around, but there is, so it's only decent against it. The only other major Delta deck is Metadrag which plays all lightning Pokemon, so you get OHKOed regardless.

Limited: 5/5
Probably the best card you can get in a DF pre-release. Most Pokemon in your opponents deck wont even be able to damage you. Should win you most games if your opponent doesn't have a counter to it, such as a big electric Pokemon.

My reviews and ratings are for Modified only.

Dewgong delta

Modified 2/5 - With the uprising of delta decks, this card looks extremely powerful defensively. However, look closer to the metagame dominated by decks such as Banette ex/Houndoom and Raichu d/Exeggutor d with Cessation Crystal, and you'll have matchup problems. Its attacks are definitely on the weak side, so trading blows isn't going to work.

Today’s Card Of The Day is…Dewgong from Dragon Frontiers
Dewgong is an anti-delta tank. His attacks are barley average, but his body makes up for it. Delta Protection reduces all damage by 40! That’s crazy!!! And at 80 hp he can become beastly. Although he is no starter, he is a god in limited.

Combos: Holon Legacy and sitrus berry or potion will turn him into a tank!…against delta decks.

Modified: 2/5 With metagross and Dragonite everywhere, even with holon legacy, he becomes meta-bait.
Limited: 5/5 every pokemon here is delta species, and since most have low attacks. You should grab him if you can

Current ebay Value: $2.55 (Plus or minus $1 dollars)

P.S. Jeff Reynolds is the best T.O. EVER!

My name is Dewgong
I got Delta Protection
My opponents are Confused
You should see their reaction


Unlimited: No Delta here and it’s attacks are performed better by other Pokemon.

Rating : 1/5

Modified: Nice that it can block Delta but it’s too weak to non Delta Pokemon.

Rating : 1/5

Limited: Woow this thing owns here almost the entire set is Delta. Watch out for Kirlia + Scramble.

Rating : 3/5
