EX Legend Maker
This card stays in play when you play it. Discard this card
if another Stadium card comes into play. If another card
with the same name is in play, you can’t play this card.
Once during each player’s turn, if the player has no Special
Energy cards in his or her discard pile, that player
searches his or her discard pile for a basic Energy card,
shows it to the opponent, and puts it into his or her hand.
didn’t look like it had too bright of a future in the current
Modified when I first saw it. Most decks ran and still run at
least a few Special Energy cards, making it rather risky to rely
on this effect. Though the effect is nice, as it reduces the
impact of discarding basic Energy cards and it makes it easier
to run multiple Basic Energy types together, there are other
Trainers that do a better job of reclaiming Energy in the short
run (and the long run if Power Tree gets discarded) and
aren’t so down on Special Energy usage. It doesn’t help that
the deck’s that run multiple types, and thus are more apt to
want this card, are also the decks that will need to run Special
Energy cards like Double Rainbow Energy, Rainbow
Energy etc. Still, I did see it used a bit in certain decks
that did discard a lot of Basic Energy cards and wanted to
retrieve them and that will keep its rating from going down,
though it’s not enough to warrant raising it.
1.5/5 – It does do something, but I’d think you could find a
better Stadium in this format, especially given that there is
even more Special Energy use here than in Modified.
2/5 – It does do something, and I think there are a few obscure
card effects that could benefit from this.
3.5/5 – Bingo, we have a winner. Although you must be cautious,
reclaiming the Energy discarded for numerous things is quite,
quite important, and you can’t just choose to run Rainbow
Energy (unless you pulled a copy). As long as you aren’t
running Special Energy cards (or aren’t like me and keep having
to use the lone ReactEnergy you pulled), the
problem here will be the opponent will likely be able to do the
exact same thing.
Not a very strong stadium, if your opponent also runs a
basic + holon pokemon engine then they could benefit
too. Only good in Flygon where the energy returned can
be delta supplied back on but then Chimecho does that.

Unlimited- Not that good here, since most decks play
special energy. Rating 1.5/5
Modified- This card was good last season when LBS
was around but now most decks play special energies.
Limited- Good card to have here since you will most
likely not pull a special energy to use, however
this card can help you opponent get that 1 energy
they need from the discard pile to help them win the
game Rating 2/5

Now I don’t run this myself card myself
Cause I run too many special energies, but The decks I
have seen it been used in do make Good use of it. One
example is when you use A trainer that makes you
discard, like t.v reporter You can jus discard an energy
then get it back with power Tree. If your only using 1
or 2 Special energies try it out.
PTO - St. Louis
Gets you one energy back every turn...but no special
energy in your discard pile...
Not always that easy of a trick with double rainbow,
multi, rainbow, scramble, dark, metal, and delta rainbow
energy (I am sure among others) making this stadium
The good news is, for decks ONLY playing basic energy,
this could work quite well. What a great way to mentor,
discard basic energy, and power tree it right
back...didn't the LBS (Lugia Blastoise Steelix) deck
ABUSE this card?
Other good news...the holon's pokemon do NOT count as
special energy cards in the discard, so you could play
power tree with Holon's Castform or Holon's Electrode
sitting in your discard.
All in all, a pretty tough trainer...
Unlimited...in the "raindance" style decks that only use
water energy, usable, everything else, not really...2/5
Modified...too few decks that use only basic energy
cards, but when it works,....it WORKS! For decks that
like this power, and use special energy, Chimecho may be
a better play here (as it gets back delta rainbow) 2.5/5
Limited...Hey, not too many special energy played here,
but you and your opponent get to use it...not a horrid
Wow, 2 in a row...can't wait for DP!
See you all soon!

Ah, Power Tree. This Stadium brings back many many
memories. Once per turn, you can get a free basic energy
from your discard pile back to your hand as long as you
don't have any special energy cards in there. This card
was used in every LBS deck back in '06. But it isn't 06,
it is a new year, 07, and this card has lost a lot of
It is very difficult to find a deck that doesn't use
special energy cards anymore, and most decks don't even
get into stadium wars anymore, we have windstorm(which
also gets rid of nasty Cessation Crystals).
All in all, it lost a lot of power, but it can still fit
in a few decks.
I won't rate unlimited, cause I don't play unlimited =*(
Trainer cards always help in limited, but you will
already be playing so many energy that this may not come
in handy at all
Random deck that it could fit in: Maybe some sort of
Typhlosion ex UF/Rayquaze ex DX deck.
Power Tree - Legend
Hey there, I'm Greenzangoose for another COTD. Today’s
COTD is one that is easy to use but hard to abuse. Power
Tree is a stadium (duh) that has a great effect, but has
other better stadiums to take its place. The best place
for Power Tree is in a deck that can abuse energy (like
BLS (Blastoise, Lugia, Steelix) or a deck that has Holon
pokemon as its only special energy. This card will get
better once Diamond and Pearl come out as Metal and Dark
energies will be basic.
Recycling your energy (always good to recycle.)
Easy to use
Holon's pokemon aren’t affected
Better stadiums (like Holon legacy, or battle frontier.)
Windstorm (Dang you windstorm...)
Can't use special energies (Which metal and dark won't
be once Diamond and Pearl come out.)
Unlimited - 2/5 there are better stadiums, but this has
a little bit of comboing ability with base Blastoise.
Modified - 3/5 there is still better stadiums, plus you
have windstorm running around. But you can abuse those
dang Holon poke's easily with this.
Limited - 4/5 has lots of use since special energy won't
be around much.
That all until next time...
"Never forget a friend, especially those that owe you."
5/2 Power Tree
Very few decks play pure basic energy nowadays. Chimecho
seems to be a better choice for most decks if they need
to retrieve energy from the discard, as having a Holon
supporter in play is a lot easier to do than to have no
special energies in the discard. Chimecho also lets you
pull Delta Rainbows in addition to basic energy. This
card doesn't really have a place in today's metagame.
2 / 5
Today’s Card Of The Day is…Power
Tree from Legend
I am really
beginning to like this stadium. With the ability to use
castform and the Mag/Trdoes as multi energy, you will be
ably to play power tree and have a continual supply of
energy. Thus reducing the amount of energy needed in a
given deck. Add the fact that metal and darkness will
now have basic energy forms, due to rule changes, and
power tree becomes even more playable…example Flygon d
and Raichu d Attach a metal energy from hand. Then use
your power to attach another metal energy (because it’s
a basic) and metallic thunder for 90, next turn get 1
energy back. You will be able to metallic thunder again.
Use with the Holon engine for discard, then power tree
Modified: 3/5 a good stadium now with future potential.
Limited:4/5 being able to retreat and still keep your
energy will win many games
