Power Tree
 
Power Tree is a good choice for decks that don't use special energy. So you can basically use less energy in your deck by putting this in.
 
Unlimited - There aren't really any decks that don't use special energy. Blastoise/Suicune ex could use it, but it loses to Vileplume ex. 1/5
 
Modified - The only deck I can think of that makes good use of it is Blastoise ex/Lugia ex/Steelix ex. Get back those waters you've been discarding. 3/5
 
Limited - Not a bad way to get back energy after one of your Pokemon has been KOed. You can fit in less energy and more pokemon/trainers in your deck this way. 4/5
 

Otaku

Name   : Power Tree

Set       : EX Legend Maker

Card#   : 76/92

Rarity   : Uncommon

Type    : Trainer

Sub-type: Stadium

Effect Text: This card stays in play when you play it.  Discard this card if another Stadium card comes into play.  If another card with the same name is in play, you can’t play this card.

 

Once during each player’s turn, if the player has no Special Energy cards in his or her discard pile, that player searches his or her discard pile for a basic Energy card, shows it to the opponent, and puts it into his or her hand.

 

Power Tree doesn’t look like it has too bright of prospects for constructed play.  Most decks run at least a few Special Energy cards, making it rather risky to rely on this effect.  Though the effect is nice, as it reduces the impact of discarding Energy and it makes it easier to run multiple Basic Energy types together, there are other Trainers that do a better job of reclaiming Energy in the short run (and the long run if Power Tree gets discarded) and aren’t so down on Special Energy usage.  It doesn’t help that the deck’s that run multiple types, and thus are more apt to want this card, are also the decks that will need to run Special Energy cards like Double Rainbow Energy, Rainbow Energy (it’s back-hurray!), etc.

 

Ratings

 

Unlimited         : 1.5/5 – It does do something, but I’d think you could find a better Stadium in this format, especially given that there is even more Special Energy use here than in Modified.

 

Modified          : 2/5 – It does do something, and I think there are a few obscure card effects that could benefit from this.

 

Limited            : 3.5/5 – Bingo, we have a winner.  Although you must be cautious, reclaiming the Energy discarded for numerous things is quite, quite important, and you can’t just choose to run Rainbow Energy (unless you pulled a copy).  As long as you aren’t running Special Energy cards (or aren’t like me and keep having to use the lone React Energy you pulled), the problem here will be the opponent will likely be able to do the exact same thing.

Power Tree

unlimited:
pretty fun, though cursed shrine wins it here. either that or broken ground gym.
1.5/5

Modified:
Nah, most other stadiums are much better. if you play special energy this card is worthless anyway, if you don't, play battle frontier.
there are exceptions of course.
1.5/5

Limited:
pretty awesome here, too bad I didn't get one at my prereleases, as soon as my opponent dropped one, I could retreat as often as I would like to and I didn't even lose the energy for that.
5/5
