Wow, I have been waiting for people to start using this
card everywhere… I guess I will have to keep waiting.
120 HP is beautiful, especially on a stage 1. 3 retreat
cost… Dang, that is quite a bit of retreat cost; let’s
just hope you have a warp point or switch (Or Tuesday’s
COTD.) -20 resistance is nice as Mario decks are lots of
play. The weakness is ok, not the most used, not the
least. The attack is great, 80 plus it discards a card
for each heads (out of two coins) The confusion is a
setback, but it can be played around. Now the poke-body,
that is where this guy shines. Able to not only use
attacks of the Magikarp below it, but it also does 30
more damage. There are only two useable Magikarp for
this. The MT one and the HP one, DO NOT USE THE HP ONE…
IT ONLY HAS SPLASH… ABUSE THE FLAIL. That is all.
Modified – someone will use this card, with good results
Limited – massive damage for only 1 energy? Count me in
I still like the whole 120 HP on a stage 1 thing,
“Please do not throw cigarettes butts into the toilet...
They become hard to light.”

is all about the pokebody how good is it going to be ?
This question is answered by the
magicarp. as the serie does not exist in Denmark yet I
haven’t seen the magikarp so ill let the others tell you
about that 1.

Attack bad as well

This Gyarados has
an amazing ability. Dragon DNA let's you take
advantage of Magikarp's Flail ability. Being able to
hit for X amount of damage counters +30 is
ridiculous. However, The Magikarp is a very easy
target for sniping Pokemon. 30HP is very low.
Therefore, playing Gyarados is very dangerous. It
has an awesome resistance, but a bad weakness. Both
Lightning and Fighting are two top tiers right now
with Electivire and Lucario...
3.5/5...Its only problem is Magikarp, but you've got
to use the flailing one simply because the only
other is from Holon Phantoms and has 30HP as well,
with a bad attack. Otherwise, Gyarados could be a
4.5/5...Totally a beast in limited. You get this, it
usually means win.
a very good card because virtually every magicarp has
the attack flail
I don't see it becoming a deck to be feared with but
it's still good. I remember people used to play gyrados
with a magikarp with flail and adding memory berry so
you can use flail for some massive damage but now you
don't have to!
don't see anything wrong with it so play it

* Poke-Body Dragon DNA: Gyarados can use any attack from
its Basic Pokemon. (You still have to pay for that
attack's Energy cost.) if Gyarados uses any attack from
its Basic Pokemon, that attack does 30 more damage to
the Active Pokemon (before applying Weakness and
(WWCC) Enrage (80) Flip a coin until you get tails. For
each heads, choose 1 card from your opponent's hand
without looking and discard it.
If the first coin is tails, Gyarados is now Confused.
weakness to electric, +30
Resistance to fighting -20
to realize the worth of Dragon DNA, you have to see what
magikarp's attacks are:
(C) Flail (10x) Does 10 damage times the number of
damage counters on Magikarp.
(WW) Dragon Rage (60) Flip 2 coins. If either of them is
tails, this attack does nothing.
well, with that said, take a look. even if you have a
single energy, you can flail, and it will do at least
30. put some damage on him and it will be even stronger.
now, to do dragon rage is just about a waste of a turn.
you will have only a 25% chance of doing 10 more than
Enrage (counting D. DNA). Flail is much the better move.
so all in all, its a useful move, specially if you
didn't have much energy on him before you had to send
him out. great for limited.
that said, look at Enrage. you could end up discarding a
lot, but you might confuse yourself. too bad. but still,
even with the possible hand destruction, its too
expensive, and a rather slow attack. if you consider
yourself really lucky, you could play this, and totally
trash their hand, but thats probably not going to
all in all, this probably isn't the card you want to
play. if you're doing hand trashing, use walrein
instead, works much better, and if you want beating
power, use something else. in limited, though, this card
earns some redemption. hand discarding could kill their
energies, and Dragon DNA allows for a power sweep even
if you only have one.
