Name: Team Galactic's Invention G-103 Power Spray
Set: Platinum

Analysis: OK, so you will obviously be using this with Pokemon-SP. A nice combo would be with Aerodactyl, since this card cancels the power, but it still counts as a power being used, so Aerodactyl will lay out 2 damage counters for nothing. Nice. Another nice combo would be with Dialga G Lv. X, as you can effectively stop both Powers (well 4 at most) and Bodies. If you will be playing Pokemon SP, this should be in your deck.

Modified: Definitely play with Pokemon-SP. (4/5)

Limited: You should have a bunch of Pokemon-SP in your packs, so this would be a good card to use. (4/5)

Can you say Counter-Spell? I knew you could.

OK, when the final set list came out, who didn’t sit here and just drool about the potential of the SP Pokemon.

The ability to have big basics, with decent powers, that worked together, and had trainers that allowed them to be scooped up, have less energy costs for attacks, and so much more.

And then we got them, and looked at them, and realized, that is this was another “Magma-2004” it was not here yet.

No SP Pokemon has the hitting power in my opinion to make a major impact on the metagame. There will be changes, but I think they really come in the next set, when some of these SP Pokemon get even bigger, and have great attacks to boot.

That being said…on to Power Spray.

If you have 2 SP Pokemon in play, you can play this card to stop your opponent from using a power. Big deal? Heh, in this age of Uxie, it really makes that card a risk, as when you drop it you run the risk of being Power Sprayed and having, essentially, a wasted spot on your bench. Mespirit, same deal. Hurts Claydol, but you can only play 4 of these in a deck, and (for now) there is no way to get them back into your deck or your hand.

Stopping the right power at the right time can be game-changing. Not allowing an Uxie to go off, or a Mespirit to lock powers, or a Claydo when the opponent has a 1 card hand could be huge. There are many others I am even forgetting, such as the power of your opponent’s SP pokemon (such as Crobat or Skunktank).

The power of this card is yet to be seen, but it could be huge in SP Decks, and we all know (or should know from my 18 pack draft report) that SP pokemon are the WAY to go in the draft of this set.

Ratings

Modified 3.5/5 Only usable in one set of decks, but a good card

Limited 4/5 Still only usable in one set of decks, but this is the deck you SHOULD be playing in limited.

Thanks and see you all soon! Missouri States coming to Eureka Missouri on March 21st!! Pay attention to COTD for some bonus door prize clues starting March 1st!!!

Power Spray (PL117)

Power Spray, or rather Team Galactic's Invention G-103 Power Spray will easily become a staple in SP decks. You can simply lay it down on your opponent's turn and stop a power from working. Bye bye Claydol, Uxie, Azelf, and so many others. Heck, it can even stop a Regigigas's Sacrifice and enable you to KO him the next turn. There are so many uses for this card, but it is unfortunately limited to SP decks, or people who run multiple SP techs.

Modified 3.5/5
Able to shut down one of your opponent's powers at will? That can easily shut several decks down. The fact that you need two sP Pokemon, is a bit of a downside, but so much to outwigh the gains.
Limited 4/5
Everyone's running SP Pokemon in here, so any deck can use this card. Plus, there are so many great Powers to shut down. Blastoise, Blazekin, ect.
