Monferno:

Unlimited: Much better FASTER hitters in Unlimited. Stick to your hitmonchans folks. 1/5

Modified: T1 play a holon supporter or TVR, t2 evolve and then on t3 you do 90 with Fire Monkey, at least 2 of these are a staple in the deck. 4/5

Limited: Great attacks for limited. Low NRG cost and decent damage. Along with free retreat and 70 HP makes it a winner. 4/5

Monferno

30 damage for only one energy and he is setting himself up for inferapes attack and free retreat cost. because you know your gonna use it to turn into infernape he is an excellent card

This monkey is actually pretty good. Chimchar doing 10+10 with PP, then Monferno knocking out Holon' Castoform is pretty beastly. I like it, very nice stage one.
 
Modified: 5/5 because you are only using it really to get out infernape, but if another Monferno comes out, this one is still likely to be better.

Yo Pojo today were going to review the First Evolution Chimitar takes on his path to becoming Goku, Oh I mean Infernape. Monferno his name and fire will be his game so lets see if he helps out the Evolution line shall we?

Monferno here is of course a fire type with 70 hp and a plus 20 weakness to water. His retreat cost I may add is a Big fat 0. His attacks are simple so lets review those now shall we? His first move Flame dance cost only one fire Energy and causes 30 damage, plus takes a fire energy from the discard and attaches it to Monferno so you now have reason to pitch energy to the discard pile. His other attack is fury Swipes which does 20 times the number of heads and we simply get 3 coin tosses, all this for 2 colorless energy. In my opinion its his first move in which we will be wanting to use Monferno for but its always nice to have options.

Unlimited: 3.5/5 Good but not perfect

Modified: 4.5/5 This Card is needed for Infernape which seems to be all thee rage and for good reason

Limited: 5/5 If you can use it Do it!

OK, here we go, the "little"" fire monkey.

Perhaps, in a history of stage 1 fire pokemon that evolve into powerful stage 2s...the best of the bunch.

70 HP, Free Retreat, Water weakness, but not x2...all positives in this current envio!

As for the attacks...30 for 1 with a recharge.

Does this spell the END of Beldum starts being considered good in Metanite? I think so.

If the Infernape player goes second, all they need with a chimchar start is Monferno, rare candy, fire energy, game.

Is that easy to pull off? No...but the threat is enough that it will cost some Metanite players a quick game from time to time, which at US Nationals would be a DISASTER.

The second attack is for desperation. Would you rather have a pure 30 for 1, or flips for 20, 40 or 60 (average 30) for 2. Most every time, take the sure damage.

Evolves into bubba, which is good.

Ratings...

Unlimited...3/5 I can see the fire monkey doing OK here with double rainbow...oops, is that a Blastoise or Suicune? BAD PLAY

Modified...4.5/5 The infernape decks are currently huge.

Limited...5/5 A perfect card in draft....high HP, free retreat, easy to get prevolution, low energy attacks, can be effective without Infernape in this format. You MUST take this card, or the Infernape in the pack with it. Period.
