Rhyperior 3/5: This card is good, but not in this format. Look to see this deck accel next year after Holon Farmer is rotated.

My name is Rhyperior

I can do Earth Fissure

And make you discard 3

That won’t be a pleasure

 

Unlimited: With Water weakness and a to  expensive attack cost it’s worthless .

 

Rating : 1/5

 

Modified: I don’t think it will see play 80 for is ok but not being able to attack next turn is a downside. And it’s high retreat cost isn’t to good either. The Power is nice but you prolly won’t use it much unless you flip your super scoop up good :-P.

 

Rating : 1.5/5

 

Limited: Ah well if you can get it out. I mean 140 is nice and the Power too. Attack is a little less but still can KO some Pokes.

 

Rating : 3/5

Yo Whaddup! Hows everybody doing tonite. Lets kick off tuesdays COTD with the newest evolution of Rhydon! RHYPERIOR
 
Unlimited: So much more stuff to play in unlimited. All stuff in UNL is wicked fast and strong. It plainly just doesnt cut it imo. 2/5
 
Modified: Well now that stall decks are gone this is a new kind of stall. Its strategy is to make your opponent deck out. It doesnt win on prizes or pokemon. I've noticed in battle roads 30 minute rounds time limit is a factor with this deck. If you cant deck them in 30 minutes their 80% of the time gonna be ahead on prizes. Theres some interesting stuff it can be played with that is winable Jirachi DX, Pidgeot POP 2, Nidoqueen d, Mawhile PK, Mr. Brineys Compassion, and Super Scoop up. So it has options but it is very slow. It has won a couple of battle roads. When it gets going its good but its consistancy is off balance. 3/5
 
Limited: Theres so much better cards to play with. It really wont ever be spotted in this format. 1/5
James Hey Everyone going to be short and sweet for this one sorry for not going into Depth but I really Don’t got much time today ><

Rhyperior is a Stage 2, Fighting type Pokemon that evolves from Rhydon, has 140 HP, +30 Water Weakness, -20 Lightning Resistance, and a Retreat Cost of CCCC.
 
The HP is GREAT (definitely one of the stronger points of this card), weakness is not the best kind, see'ing a rise of Empoleon decks, but could be worse, the resistance is good in that it blocks Metanite, however a retreat cost of CCCC is ridiculous, basically meaning that you'll either need to run many Briney/SSU/Switch/Warp Point in this deck or never retreat.
 
Many people use this card for its Earth Fissure PokePower which causes the opponent to discard the top 3 cards from his or her deck. Combo'd with Briney's Compassion/Super Scoop Up this has the possibility of decking the opponent in very little time. However, the downside to this style of deck is that basically plays defensively the whole game, generally not utilizing Rhyperior's attack (which can be inconsistant with a bad setup). This card has received a lot of hype and has won some tournaments, but I do not foresee it becoming a force because of its lack of inconsistancy.
