Hippo Dude: Sand
Eject - Double Rainbow FTW!! another card that has potential
next format but will likely see little play.
A 110 hp stage 1 is pretty good, and fighting is a nice
type, but the energy costs are just to much. The 2nd
attack is nice though, 60 then a bonus 40 to any damage
done to the defending pokemon next turn is pretty nifty
its slow, but it could be fun
If you can pull a line of it, use it. You won't regret

It’s time for Pokemon COTD!!! Today’s COTD is Hippowdon.
This poke’ is on the verge of greatness. He can survive
some of the biggest blasts, and has massive attacks that
can do 160 damage in two turns. The only problems is
that he has a retreat cost that is almost as big as
Hippowdon himself and both of his attacks need 1 to many
160 damage in two turns
To much retreat cost
His attacks are 1 energy to expensive
Unlimited – To slow 1/5
Modified – Almost to slow 3.5/5
Limited – Massive HP and attacks = Winner 4.5/5
Too bad neither of his attacks can OHKO anything but
“Ambition is a poor excuse for not having enough sense
to be lazy.”

Unlimited: 1/5 Not a chance here.
Modified: 2/5 This card is 1C too many from being a
decent attacker. Its first attack has a nice effect, but
3 energy for 40 is just too cost inefficient. On the
other hand, its second attack could've been decent, but
failed. If it cost FCCC it "could have" been playable
because of Boost. But the FFCC makes this card
unplayable in a very speedy format.
Limited: 2/5 Nah. I don't like this card here. Besides
having good HP for a Stage 1, it doesn't have much of
anything else going for it.
A sand hippo? What were they thinking? Anyway, even
though I don't like this pokemon, I have to admit that
he is pretty good in card form. As I said before, 40
damage for 3 energy is never great, but keeping your
opponent from switching is pretty darn good. He is a
stage 1 with 110 HP, which means that he can take some
punishment. His second attack is pretty good too. Four
energy gets you 60 damage, which is ok. But next turn if
an attack damages the defending pokemon it does
40 more damage. Meaning that if your opponent can't take
out Hipowdon, then they will lose their pokemon. Combine
this with Vacuum Up and you have a solid pokemon.
Hippopotas is not so bad either, so you can fit this guy
into many fighting decks.
Modified-3/5 (decent here, but you need to be doing more
damage for the energy costs)
LImited-4.5/5 (This guy is pretty good here, even though
he is a rare. If you get him, play him)

the picture is nice. its attacks are powerfull but all 1
energy too expensive.
110 hp for stage 1 is great but as said its attacks are
and to make it 3 time's a charm: ITS ATTACKS ARE GREAT,
BUT TOO EXPENSIVE.
this likely wont see play as its attacsk are to
Hope ive made my oppinion clear :D
Its really a petty it could've been a really coool card
in limited its great though
