Empoleon LvX :

Unlimited: A stage 3 in unlimited is incredibly hard to get.and with the specific water energies needed to attack Double Colorless doesn't help you at all. For these specific reasons this card will never be good in Unlimited Format. 1/5

Modified: His understages spread damage so his bench hitting attacks are good. With a nice power he has many good combos. 3/5

Limited: There is like a 1% chance of getting him out. 1/5
 
Koopa-Troopa Empoleon Lvl.X: A great card that is in the wrong format. With the electric decks sneaking around it can't shine in the current format. The best combo is with Vaporeon ex to give your opponent a nice two card hand. But then next format all the eeveelution will be gone so he can't shine then either. But its still a great card. 3.5/5

Hey Everyone its Thursday and were back to Reviewing Pokemon for Now in our Card of the day Sections. To Close off the week well be looking at the last two new Level X pokemon since to this point we’ve only done one. Today’s Pokemon is Empoleon Level X, Empoleon is the final Form of Piplup my favorite Starter from the new Series but then again I almost always prefer the water Starter over all others but enough about that lets get to Reviewing this Level X Pokemon.

To Start off Empoleon Level X is a Water type with a plus 30 Weakness to Electric, a Retreat Cost of 2 Colorless, and 140 Hp Which isn’t bad I guess given he’s an “Evolution” of a Final Form Pokemon that cant use Evolution aiding Trainers. His Poke Body basically takes away 2 cards from your opponents Hand untill the end of there next turn which could be a HUGE help in keeping this big Bird alive and well. His Attack Hydro Impact cost 3 Water energy and deals 80 damage regardless of weakness or resistance to anyone of your opponents pokemon you get the choice here but this comes with a downside as Empoleon cant attack during your next turn So you better take out something to make that spent turn worth it. If he was limited to these powers and these powers only id give him a 2 out of 5 but remember Level X can Use the powers of there previous form so it looks Like Empoleon will be a Bench Sweeper for now. If you want a Water deck that can take out pokemon before they become a threat then Empoleon might be your answer.

Unlimited: 3/5 With the help of Pokemon Breeder you might just get this guy out, course youd have to get the basic Empoleon out with Breeder but that’s what its for right?

Modified: 4/5 With a total of 2 Bench hitting attacks on his Side he looks like he could be a Powerfu8l bench sweeper picking off threats before they can materialize.

Limited: 4/5 Speed is an Issue here But if you Draft all the things needed to make him happen then try it out you’ll probably score a few prizes by picking off the bench not to mention he does counter Infernape who seems to be the most popular here.
