Smoochum
 
Unlimited - Junk. 1/5
 
Modified - No reason to use Smoochum here since Jynx is bad. The attack is weak and flippy. 1/5
 
Limited - Barely any special energy cards are used here so the attack will probably do nothing at all! 1/5

Hello, I hope all of you are having a good day so far. Today’s COTD is one that doesn’t
(And probably won’t) see much play. This will be kinda short, low HP is not good in this high HP format. The poke-power is one that is standard on all newer baby pokemon, the ability to evolve from a power is a pro and a con because it lets you evolve on the first turn, but it also can’t evolve if it’s power is turned off (From something like Cessation Crystal.) The attack isn’t that good because 1. It needs a coin flip to work, and 2. The most common special energy is double rainbow energy and boost energy, and boost is discarded before this can hit it. Overall, only use it to evolve into Jynx so you fire and psychic pokemon have 1 less retreat cost (More for the fire as psychic already has Pheobe’s stadium.)
 
Pros –
Evolves into Jynx
Possible energy removal
Baby evolution
 
Cons –
 
Possible energy removal
Coin flips are evil
Low HP
Baby evolution
 
Unlimited – Use a baby with the other baby power (You know, the flippy one) 1/5
 
Modified – Only use to evolve. 2.5/5
 
Limited – Hard to evolve + almost no special energy = don’t use this 2/5
 
Can’t wait until I can start building decks with cards from GE!

This is ok discarding special energies is nice but as all other flip cards good players just don’t use them.

Arbok14 Hello to everyone, today is Wednesday and here I am, back for another review. Today we have Smoochum, a baby Pokemon which evolves into Jynx.

--------------------------------------------------

Name: Smoochum LV. 6
Set: Secret Wonders
Rarity: Uncommon

Overview: Smoochum is a baby Pokemon which can evolve into the basic Pokemon Jynx. It is psychic-type and has 50 HP, +10 Weakness to psychic, no resistance, and a Retreat Cost of 1. It has the Poke-Power 'Baby Evolution,' which allows you to evolve it into Jynx and remove all damage counters originally on Smoochum when you do. Its attack, 'Psykiss,' costs no energy and has you flip a coin and shuffle 1 special energy card attached to 1 of your opponent's Pokemon back into his or her deck with a heads flip.

Analysis: I think that Smoochum would be much better if Jynx was a better card to evolve into. Smoochum could be an alright starter because of its energy-less attack, but that attack does require a coin flip and 50 HP is not good. I don't think that Smoochum will see any play mainly because its attack is flippy and because Jynx is not good at all. This is especially true since its attack is dependent on it having damage counters and Jynx's 70 HP gives you little room for that. Most decks can do 70+ damage by turn 3. The weakness is also bad, especially with the incredible popularity of Gardevoir.

Unlimited: Don't even think about this. Unless you like Smoochum-sacrificing rituals. Then otherwise go ahead. (1/5)

Modified: I don't think it will see play here either. If only Jynx had a cool evolution like Magmar and Electabuzz do now... (1/5)

Limited: No useful here either, especially since it will be rare that your opponent will use special metal or darkness energies, let alone pull them. (1/5)

Ouch, I was harsh today... Death to Smoochy, lol!
