Pluspower

I don't think pluspower will "work" in many decks. First, it can only be topdecked yet it is only needed in certain situations. Second, many decks are starting to use the castaway engine, where strength charm is far more useful for being a tool. As I see it, all pluspower will do for the format is leave people on edge if they are against a pokemon that could KO them if it could just do ten more damage.

2/5

Pluspower

 

Unlimited- Not that good here, in unlimited you are normally overkilling and don't need the extra 10 Rating 1/5

 

Modified- Good part about Pluspower it happens before weakness and resistance, Bad part with the new way of calculating weakness and resistance the good part doesn't matter. STRENGTH CHARM becomes much better then Pluspower because it can be searched out with Castaway. Rating 2/5

 

Limited- Extra 10 damage can be good at times, but it does take up space, only put it in if you have nothing else good to put in. Rating 1.5/5

FINALLY! A card that does not get like 0 rating from me as a trainer in this set!

Pluspower is a stackable trainer, that you can add to pokemon that already have a tool, or another plus power on!

That's right kiddies...you can have a crystal shard AND a pluspower! Or 2 plus powers, or even 3!

Problem is, being just a trainer, it is impossible to search for it...but wait...what is that new Grass Trainer/Pokemon...Budew...oh, this just may be playable!

10 extra damage dropped at the right time is DEVASTATING. 20 is Oh...oh....CHAW! Too many people will not see it coming, or see the raminfications of having 2 dropped on them...and

It is BEFORE weakness and resistance, so with the right drop, it is +20 per pluspower! Combine with Crystal Shard, and you go from resistant to ouch weak on some dragons!

This is more of dinosaur then the mysterious fossil, as pluspower was put out in the first base set, and has now made its return!

Ratings...

Unlimited...always good here! 4/5

Modified...some decks will use Strength Charm more effectively, but other decks...it just works! 4/5

Limited...10 extra damage, no drawbacks, just too devastating. 5/5

There you go!

Pluspower Diamond & Pearl

OH yes!!! They finally brought this thing back =) *Hugs the nearest random bystander* O.K. now this was (and is) a nice card. Simple effect that can change the game in an instant. For those of you who don’t know, this is an ancient reprint from plenty of packs starting with the base set.
This card rocks as it can turn your 50 damage attack that is 10 damage from being able to knock out your opponents last pokemon, into GG (good game, used to say the end of a game.)
Use this card in a fast deck that can do damage quickly (like Lucario.)

Pros-
Not a supporter.
10 extra damage.

Cons-
None at all. =)
Unlimited – This card rocks, turning the already powerful Sneasle into a umm… A Sneasle that can do 10 extra damage =P. 4/5

Modified – I predict lots of faster decks in the future. 5/5

Limited – Good here as it could mean game. 4/5

Wow this card rocks,

Hey again everyone its Wednesday and for the next 2 days were looking at Reprints right out of Base set and Jungle respectively. Today were looking at plus power a Card that brings back some very fond memories and well some not so pleasant ones but lets not go there.

As I said Plus power isn’t a new cards Its from the oldest set in the game, just reprinted so we can use it again. Plus Powers Effect is pretty strait forward, you attach it as if it were a Pokemon tool and get rid of it at end of turn as though it were a supporter, it simply adds 10 more damage to your attack BEFORE weakness and resistance are applied. Sure 10 Damage may not seem like a lot but every bit of damage counts. Its uses have gone down a little overtime since we have a lot more trainers out there that help decks out more then this one does, and Pokemon generally have More Hp then back in the good old days but if you find you have an extra slot left in your deck then heck try a Plus Power you may be Surprised.

Unlimited: 3/5 Not much to Say this cards pretty average here.

Modified: 3.5/5 I think this could combo well with the new Pokemon with free attacks, What’s better then an attack that hits for 10 damage for no Energy? An attack that does 20 for free!

Limited: 4/5 Again with the free attacks on some pokemon this Trainer may prove most useful in a Limited Draft then in other formats.
