Gardevoir

Unlimited - Not many supporters are played here. 1/5

Modified - Almost like Pidgeot. Helps you draw a bunch of cards each turn. It's especially good if your opponent used a Mars or wager, since you can use it back at them. Psychic Lock can cripple Poke-Power dependent decks. 4/5

Limited - Not many supporters are used, and this is a stage 2. 2/5

Gardevoir Lv. 55 SW

Good Thursday to all of you who may be reading this. Today’s COTD is number 7 on the list of the top 10 cards of 2007. This card is the driving force of Gardylade the new deck that has been kicking butt everywhere. This pokemon isn’t an attacking pokemon too much (Although 110 HP might make her one.) But she does an awesome job of helping you set up. In this format filled with supporters, this card rocks! Not only can you now use your normal 1 per turn supporter, but you can use one from your opponent’s discard too! All you have to watch out for is those dang Cessation Crystal’s and poke-power blocking powers. Psychic lock isn’t too bad, 60 for 1 (p) and 2 (c) is sub-par, but with the added fact that it shuts down your opponents powers it isn’t too bad. +30 weakness to Psychic and a semi-large 2 retreat cost make it not better nor worse. Add all of that with the fact that she can level up and has another stage 2 in her evolutionary line and you have yourself a major butt kicking force!

Pros –
110 HP
Awesome poke-power
Lock your opponent’s powers for a turn

Cons –
Weak to itself (Bad for mirror matches)
2 much retreat cost (A slightly overused pun)

Unlimited – No supporters = no good! 1/5

Modified – lots of supporters = it’s Grrreat! 4/5

Limited – less supporters = not as good. 2.5/5

Next time on COTD top 10! An awesome pokemon that may make fan girls Feint,

Gardevoir lv 55

 

This is by many claimed to be the new pidgeot and it fills this role well as its pokepower is amazing as setup midgame and lategame.

Its attack is very usefull although a bit on the exepensive side. Stopping all pokepowers for a round is very often the difference between winning and losing  2 retreat is to much but its evo stops this

A very strong choice

Unlimited: Not many Supporters played, so not much of a use.

Rating : 1/5

Modified: Good card used in combination with Gallade and Gardevoir LvX. The Power can use a Supporter from your opponent's Discardpile.This means you can use 2 Supporters on 1 Turn. This helps you Setup really quick. It's attack is also good to lock Powers.

Rating : 4/5

Limited: If you can get it out play it cause there aren't many Supporters in Limited.

Rating : 3/5
Arbok14 Well, it's Thursday, and now we're down to lucky number seven on our Top 10 of 2007. #7 is Gardevoir from Secret Wonders.

Name: Gardevoir
Set: Secret Wonders
Rarity: Rare Holo

Overview: Gardevoir is a stage 2 pokemon, with basic Ralts and stage 1 Kirlia in its evolutionary line. It is psychic-type and has 110 HP, +30 Weakness to psychic, no Resistance, and a Retreat Cost of 2. Gardevoir has a Poke-Power called 'Telepass,' which, once during your turn, allows you to search your opponent's discard pile for a supporter card and use its effect as the effect of this power. You can only use 1 Telepass Poke-Power per turn and it can't be used if Gardevoir is affected by a Special Condition. Its attack, 'Psychic Lock,' costs (PCC), has a base damage of 60, and during your opponent's next turn, he/she can't use any Poke-Powers on his/her Pokemon.

Analysis: Well, Gardevoir is one half of the hugely popular phenomenon known as Gardelade. It teams up with fellow Kirlia evolution, Gallade, to make up a very powerful and potent team. I like Gardy's Telepass power a lot because it helps you move your deck along faster by using your opponent's supporters. The attack is pretty good, too, especially when you are playing Power-necessary decks such as Hurricane (Feraligatr/Delcatty/Magneton), Typhlosion/Magmortar, etc. And its Lv X makes it even better, with its Bring Down attack and Teleportation power. Bring Down automatically KO's the pokemon with the least remaining HP in play and Teleportation switches Gardevoir either with a pokemon on your bench (if Gardy is active), or with your active (if Gardy is on the bench). Gardelade is a complicated deck, but very uncoplicated when it comes to getting your Pokemon out. This is why many people play it, but only those who know the deck well and what to do in certain situations will be the ones to succeed with it.

Ratings

Unlimited: No thank you, Telepass is useless here as no supporters are really played and Psychic Lock only does 60. Although it can shut down Rain Dance... (1/5)

Modified: As I said, 1/2 of the most popular deck out now. Use wisely though... (4/5)

Limited: Not bad here, but getting it out and getting lucky to get the preevolutions will be tough... (3/5)
