Cresselia LV X

Unlimited - lol I seriously don't think there are any good cards in Unlimited past Hidden Legends. 1/5

Modified - Very interested poke-power and attack. The power is like Banette ex's, except you can use it on the bench. Deliver a finishing blow with Moon Skip to get 2 prizes. His weaknesses are low HP, double weakness to psychic, and fairly expensive attack. 3/5

Limited - If you're lucky enough to get both Cresselia and his LV X form, this is a killer. Each turn you can move back 10 damage to your opponent's side, and take 2 prizes each time you kill something. 4/5

Welcome to a new week, I hope it has started well for all of you. Today is our first look at one of the

new Lv. X from Great Encounters: Cresselia.

Name: Cresselia Lv. X
Set: Great Encounters
Rarity: Ultra Rare Holo

Analysis: Hmmm... A Lv. X for a Basic Pokemon, cool, it's like a super-Stage 1! Its Basic form is pretty good: 80 HP, cheap 1st attack that can heal, and decent second attack. So it should be a smooth transition into the Lv. X should it have to start. As for the Lv. X, 100 HP is good, but a double weakness to Psychic is not, especially with the popularity of Gardevoir, Banette, and expectedly Weezing.

1 Retreat Cost is good. Full Moon Dance is a great Poke-POWER: You move 1 damage counter from any Pokemon to any other Pokemon in play. With two of these out, this could be great. Moon Skip applies the EX rule to any Defending Pokemon the attack is used on. So two prizes for any Pokemon and THREE for knocking out an EX! Unfortunately, this attack only deals 40 damage. But, with the other Lv. X out, it could be 60 thanks to the Powers. This could be some play, but I don't see it having a big impact, because of the double weakness to Gardevoir and Banette and the weak attack set.

Ratings

Modified: Not a bad Lv. X, but also not the best. Weak attacks, a large weakness, and only 100 HP hinder its chance of becoming a cornerstone in successful decks. (2.5/5)

Limited: Honestly, if you receive both Cresselia (a rare holo) and its Lv X (and ultra-rare holo), you should use them. But the odds of this happening are very small. Congratulations if you do pull one though. (4/5)

Cressilia lv X

 

This card is very hard to evaluate ”draw 2 prizes instead” seems like such an INSANELY strong sentence but i see quite a few problems:

 

1)      how to charge it ?

Its basic so NO DRE or scramble with PPC for only 40 (50with power) you need a serious way to charge it using 3 turns is simply to slow. HOW is the question.

 

2)      Low damagde output

40 isnt going to KO anything and if it takes you 2 or 3 attacks to KO it is kind of terrible: Spread damagde? Pluspowers? Your choice but something is needed

 

3)      Bad weakness and low HP

2XP weak and only 100 hp? This wont last long.

 

Despite it bad points i see a lot of people trying to break this and who knows they may just do it.

 

I actually see this working in classic if you have powerfull energy accel like blastoise (and holon castform) using this while trying to ko opponents cleffa doesnt seem awfull.

Cresselia LvX

This Cresselia level up has the capabilities to either become a great popular card or a card seldom used at all. Full Moon dance is brilliant, there's a few things it could combo with for its healing aspect such as Wailord and others that could use a +10 damage boost. Moon Skip is much more of a deterrent than an actual effective strategy. You can force pokemon with less than 50 HP to flee but you probably aren't going to claim two prizes from anything. Factoring in the poor basic Creselia it levels up from, I'm going to be critical here.

Modified: 3.8/5 - considerable but not quite good enough.
Limited: 4.5/5 - A very good pokemon here taht shoudl really mess your opponent's pokemon around. Think of it as the same as a 1-1 evolution line with the advantage of if you pull premier ball.
