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!
(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.
Weakness: +30 to electric types
Resistance: -20 to fighting types
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
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
Retreat cost: The amazing free retreat, perfect combo
with a warp point.
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
Get it, bugging me?
