"Ness" 2006 World
With 120 HP and grass weakness, this is a difficult Pokemon
Definitely a nice card with Scramble Energy, Rock Blast can
let you nail any
Pokemon for up to 100 damage. The nice part is that you can
spread the damage out. Armaldo can work well in combination
with Raichu d, as Raichu d
spreads damage using Zzzap without taking prizes. This will
allow you to use Scramble Energy effectively with Armaldo.
However, comparing Rock Blast to Exeggutor d's Split Bomb
lets you realize the attack is actually quite weak. The fact
that you have to discard the fighting energy makes it
difficult to continually use the attack, which is what would
allow you to win games.
Today’s Card Of The Day is…Armaold from Power Keepers
Wow, with all the restrictions and limitations on
fossils, I can’t believe that this card was ever
approved for production. For 5 fighting energy you can
“Rock Blast” for a maximum of 100 damage spread in
increments of 20 however you like. Be it all on one
pokemon or spread out between 5. The only problem is you
must discard a fighting energy for every 20 you do. His
second attack “Mach Claw” does 60 and gets past
resistance, but does little to help this card. Overall
for a stage 2 to have such horrible attacks, he should
have been given a poke-body/poke-power to balance him
out, because as is, he is useless.
Combos: Kabutops from the same set. Drag them off, and
then rock blast for a prize
Modified: 2/5 A stage 2 fossil should have much better
Limited: 4/5 with fossil stall support, and the ability
to KO a weak bench basic he can do some damage.
Current ebay Value: $3.50 (Plus or minus $ 1 dollar)
P.S. Jeff Reynolds is the best T.O. EVER!

At first glance, I liked Rock Blast. The control you
have of that attack is amazing; then I realized how
costly it is. There's not really a good way to supply it
with tons of energy since you can't use Flygon d or
Altaria ex. It becomes an extremely overpriced attack.
Mach Claw is fairly weak for a stage 2. 120 HP is great
and grass weakness is one of the better weaknesses to
have, but it just can't deal enough damage.
