Vaporeon ex

Vaporeon ex has high HP for a stage 1. Evolutionary Swirl can mess up your opponent's hand, and Hydrosplash is pretty good for the cost. Overall an average pokemon.

Unlimited - ER, SER, GOW will kill this. 1/5

Modified - Still not much better. But it can combo with Fieldworker ;). 1/5

Limited - Excellent. High HP and good attacks for the cost. 5/5

Here we have another Eevee-lution card whose Pok?Power only works when you play it from your hand, which does not work with the Eevee [UF] energy
Evolution power. However, it is good when you are able to evolve from your hand. If your opponent has just used Scott, Holon Mentor, or some other card to get cards from his/her deck into his/her hand, Evolutionary Swirl can disrupt your opponent's strategy by preventing him/her from playing cards he/she planned to use next turn. Of course, Rocket Admin does the same thing, but with this power, you have benefit of disrupting your opponent's
hand and still being able to use a supporter for that turn.

Vaporeon Ex retreat cost of one is very good, considering its 120 HP. It's
an EX, but I believe the EX rule (and other disadvantages of being an EX) is more than made up for by and attack that does 40 for (1W) and an attack that does 60 for (2W). And let's not forget the 120 HP!

Unlimited: Perhaps you could surprise your opponent with this card (considering the lack of anti-EX tech in Unlimited decks). You could get it out one turn one with Energy Evolution? (you don't get to use the Evolutionary Swirl, but I don't think it's very useful in this format) to avoid fighting weakness and a consequential FTKO from a Tyrogue [N2] or Hitmonchan [BS]. You could have it doing 60 on turn two with DCE, which is not too bad. 3/5

Modified: Not the best water attack in Modified, but still a good card (and a lot better than the Jolteon/Flareon/Vaporeon from UF). Its power should help here if you want to evolve Eevee manually. There's plenty of water resistance in this format, so Fastwave's effect will definitely help 4.2/5

Limited: Lack of special energy requirements makes this card stand out. All you need is water to get this thing to work. There is no water resistance in DS (except for Rayquaza d). There's no water weakness either, so it balances out. The hand disruption that Evolutionary Swirl could cause is worth it, without a doubt. 4.8/5

Vaporeon ex (Delta Species)

Unlimited: What to say it’s not great. Lightning weaknes and being ex is bad here.

Rating : 1/5

Modified: Well here it can be actually fun I mean 120 for an stage 1 is nice plus you can get it out fast with Eevee from Unseen Forces. It’s power isn’t to bad and three for 60 is nice.

Kevin 89 and I come up with a little combo called Vaposwamp. The combo consisting of Vaporeon UF , Vaporeon ex and Swampert EM together with Surprise Time Machine it’s kinda fun. Although that I’m not sure of it being consistent and al.

Rating : 2/5

Limited : Well if you get it along with Eevee just use it (like I did : P) it’s worth it even though it’s a ex.

Rating : 2/5

Vaporeon EX

Unlimited:
being an ex sucks in unlimited and weakness to lightning isn't good either. it's poke-power is nice though, but cleffa and a lot of other cards get around it. this could be devastating if your opponent doesn't have cleffa and you have some slowking NG on your bench. play some rocket's trap along with it and you have a lock. though imposter proffesor oak does basically the same thing and you could find a better attacker. without lightning restistance ;)
2.5/5

Modified:
I think it is very interesting here. there is a pretty good chance your opponent gets a crappy hand so you can KO some basics while your opponent is recovering. also, fastwave is a pretty good attack, heck 2 for 40 damage is just awesome. and it goes through any protective poke-body or metal energy. pretty nice. the 60 damage attack is cheap too, but not really special. the major downfall of this card is that it has weakness to lightning. also, desert ruins/cursed stone will eat it alive. other than that, it's a pretty disruptive card.
4/5

Limited:
if you get it, don't even hestitate.
weakness to lightning sucks, but 60 knocks out dratini's and beldum.
and fastwave hits any lucky metal user. hopefully, evolutionary swirl won't let your opponent get a too nice setup.
4.5/5
