Girafarig’s Poké-Body is distinctive in the fact that it is a beneficial Poké-Body that does not require the user to have the Pokémon as his/her active Pokémon in order to take advantage of it. Girafarig’s Poké-Body shuts down Poké-Powers of active non-EX basic Pokemon. What does that include?

-Ditto’s “Transform”
-Sudowoodo’s “Mimic”
-And a few others. The most important one, IMO, is Jirachi [DX]. It’s a great way to help a player set up in the beginning of a game. If you can stop it, you have just given your opponent a major inconvenience.

Unlimited: Who uses Jirachi here? 1/5

Modified: Can be used as a tech in many different decks, if you’re afraid of Jirachi (or some other basic Pokémon with a Poké-Power that just happens to be active). I don’t think Girafarig is worth it. Maybe in a deck completely based on shutting down Poké-Powers/Bodies, but outside that, I’d rather use special conditions to stop Poké-Powers like Wishing Star. The attacks are average (Absol [HP] and Lunatone [DS] have foresight). I’ll give Girafarig a few more points because it could stop “Baby Evolution.” 2/5

Limited: Shuts down Magby, Wynaut , Mew (but only if they’re active). It’s Poké-Body is worthless. Foresight has good potential here (due to lack of search/draw trainers). 3/5

This is a card that everyone must AT LEAST have one of because it is sssooo splashable. If you are not playing a deck with Jirachi DX you almost HAVE to play this card. Since this card isnt ex I am not going into full detail. The thing that MAKES this card is its ability which shuts down all active basic powers. You might think "Who cares?" If you think that you must obviously not be competitivly playing pokeman right now. This Lil Giraffe shuts DOWN Jirachi which is played in about 60-%80 of the good decks that are out right now. Also Jiraffe can stop eevee uf if you ever run into one and baby evoulutions. Foresight and Disorder are also helpful especially foresight to possibly swoop. But Giraffes main purpose is to stop Jirachi. And JIRACHI WINS GAMES! THAT CARD IS TO DIE FOR!

Overall:

Modified 4.5/5

Limited 4/5

unlimited~I am sure there are better cards

My name is Girafarig
Look at my name
If you spell it backwards
You get the same

Unlimited: There are better ways to stop powers like Magby or Igglybuff.

Rating : 1/5

Modified: Quite nice stops Jirachi wich is quit heavily played right now.

But it needs the right deck to fit in.

Rating : 2/5

Limted: Could be nice, it’s attacks are quit fair though.

Rating : 1.5/5
