OK, not even going to April Fools this poor butterfly.

Traditional Beautifly, with low energy attacks, that get more and more violent the more energy you toss on it.

120 HP, weakness to lightning, resistance to fighting, 0 retreat cost, all great stats. No major lightning deck, sorry vire and amphy, have come forward to rule the roost (yet).

This thing is not going to get one hit knocked out by much.

With 2 energy and a Great Encounters Sceptile in play, thing does 60 damage and 3 special conditions!!!

For 1 energy and ANY resistance by the defending pokemon, this thing does 60!

Good attacks.

Problem…good does not equal great in this envio.

I do have to give this card its props. Could give a player real trouble if it gets going, and broken space time makes it even a more formidable threat.

Problem is, with the low energy swarming decks, I think it comes in third to Machamp, Kingdra and even Beedrill. Heck, Rampardos even has some advantages over it.

If you like the card, and want to have some fun, try this out.

Usual Stage 2 swarm support lines of Claydol, Uxie, Mespirit, and Broken Time Space gym.

As cruel as I have been with ratings recently, here is Beautifly.

Modified 3.5/5 If you opened against me with this in an event, I wouldn’t immediately think “ooh, a win”…I would think…how do I get around ALL those status conditions!

Limited 2/5. A stage 2 deck in Limited is very hard to pull off. If you are doing sealed, it is almost impossible.

Talk to you soon!

Happy fools day!

Hey everyone! Eevee here once a.... you know; I just realzed that I'm the only girl here at COTD. Hm... I wonder if that's a good thing or a bad thing. ^^' Anyway, getting back on topic, today's COTD is one of my favorite pokemon! It's Beautifly! YOu know, in my first PL pack I actually pulled two of these cards! But I digress, again. ^^' Let's take a look at what I think is one of the best cards in the set!

Attacks:

(G) Colorful Powder - 20+ damage -If Beautifly has 2 or less Energy attached to it, the Defending Pokémon is now Poisoned. If Beautifly has 3 Energy attached to it, the Defending Pokémon is now Burned and Poisoned. If Beautifly has 4 or more Energy attached to it, this attack does 20 damage plus 40 more damage and the Defending Pokémon is now Asleep, Burned, and Poisoned.

(G) Silver Scale - 30 damage - If the Defending Pokémon has any Resistance, this attack's base damage is 60 instead of 30.

Stage: 2
Type: Grass
HP: 120HP
Weakness: +30 to electric types
Resistance: -20 to fighting types
Retreat: None

Ok! Review time! Unlike allot of this set's cards Beautifly does NOT have a Poke'Body or Power. But that doesn't mean that it's a bad thing! Now you don't have to worry about being Power Spared or being block by other cards! It does however have two really awesome (and cheap!) attacks that can do a world of damage to your opponent! And with both attacks being super easy to get charged you can spend little time with Beautifly and then put your focus on the rest of you team!

It's first attack is Colorful Powder. For an easily charged attack it's more versitle then most! For one energy you can do a base damage of 20. Add another energy to it and you get eh added effect of poisening your opponent. For three you can do 20 damage, poisen, and burn them in one hit! But that's not all! For four energy you can do a whopping 60 damage, and cause your opponent to be effected by every possible stat effect (except confused) all at once! Yikes! I'd hate to be on the recieving end of that! And what makes this attack so good is all in the way it's read! The attack says "energy" and not "energy card" which means by playing Beautifly with Sceptile from GE you could do all of that damage for only two energy cards! Or you could combo it with Shaymin Lv. X (Land form) and charge it up with one attack!

It's second attack, Silver Scale, keeps the heavy damage coming with a really cheap energy cost once again! For a single grass energy it can do 30 damage with the ability to hit for 60 to a pokemon that has any resistance! Now tell me, how many current cards do you see that don't have a resistance? I'll tell you the field is very small; which puts Beautifly in the perfect posistion to do some amazing damage!

Stat time! Ok, being a stage two you'll definitely want to add in Rare Candy and Broken Time Space to get Beautifly in the game as fast as possible. Because let's face it, this pokemon could OHKO most any basic. Well, except for some. But that's still a pokemon KO'd every other time if you play it right! Having 120HP is pretty good as well. It should last a least 2-3 or possibly even 4 rounds. It'll definitly last longer the faster you get it played.
It's weakness to Electric is iffy; you still see a few Raichu's and Ampharos's but having a FREE RETREAT (that's right!) should let you move it in and out
of play fairly easy.
A resistance to fighting is nice considering the people who actually use the Fossil decks and any Machamps people might throw in.

In all I'd say this is a awesome card that you should definitly add to your grass decks! And what's ever better, that cute little wurmple at the bottom of the Beautifly's stack, can do double duty and evolve into Dustox as well! (Altho, maybe not the Platinum Dustox....) But you see my point. With two attacks that can do so much with little energy it's a great card for decks that have other lines that really hog the energies. It's stats also make a perfect combination
to most decks. So, gove this card a look over!

This card is bugging me.

Today’s card is a 120 HP grass type Beautifly.

Attacks: 1 grass 20+. If Beautifly has 2 or less energy attached to it, the defending Pokemon is now poisoned. If Beautifly has 3 energy attacked to it, the defending Pokemon is now burned and poisoned. If Beautifly has 4 or more energy attached to it, the defending Pokemon is now burned poisoned and asleep an does 20+40 more damage. A good card to have a new player start with, but not a viable card in today’s competitive format, an Unown G shuts this attack down. Second attack. 1 grass 30 damage. If the defending Pokemon has any resistance this attacks base damage is now 60. An ok attack, its not great because most people aren’t playing Gengar anymore, the time has moved on to SP decks and Machamp, decks which basics ether don’t have a resistance, or have a high enough HP to take the hit. Very weak attacks for a stage 2 Pokemon.

Weakness: +30 electric not terrible, there not much viable electric in the format, but you never know.

Resistance: -20 fighting. Good against your unfriendly neighborhood Machamp.

Retreat cost: The amazing free retreat, perfect combo with a warp point.

Ratings:

Modified: 2/5 Like I said earlier, it’s a good card to get someone started with, but not In a competitive forma t, but the low energy attacks get it up to a 2/5 instead of a 1.

Limited: 5/5 a card that will own anyone in draft if you get it up, the 1 energy attacks make you only need about 5-8 energy in your 4 card deck. that’s what gets it a perfect 5/5


Get it, bugging me?
