OK – I really dislike this card a lot. Since they made
about 25 billion Giratinas this set, this guy has tons
of competition for playing time. It doesn’t help that
he’s probably the worst of the bunch of either, but
anyway on to the review we go.
HP: 110 – Probably the best part of this card. I mean,
they had to balance this card with SOMETHING decent. 110
for a basic is awesome, and means you won’t be getting
FTKO’d by anything other than Machamp.
Attacks: Dragon Claw, Dragonbreath – Dragon Claw is a
waste, and Dragonbreath is just bad. This is why the
card pales in comparison to the other Giras. 3 for 80
with a chance of not succeeding means that half the time
you won’t be doing any damage. Not good.
Weakness/Resistance – Darkness +30/Colorless -20 – Dark
weakness is not good right now, but what do you expect
from a ghost. The colorless resistance is good, however.
This really doesn’t change anything IMO.
Retreat: 2C – This is alright, I guess. It’s better than
having 3 like the other ones, but then again the attacks
more than make up for it. I doubt you’d be retreating
this guy anyway.
Overall, please don’t play this Gira. If you need to,
then do it but the attacks are way too horrible to
warrant me suggesting it.
Modified – 2.5/5
Limited – 3.5/5
OK, THIS Giratina
110 HP is good, double weakness to dark is, well,
Resistance to colorless becomes more and more irrelevant
Retreat cost of 2 is workable, especially with some of
the options out there.
The attacks, 2 for 30 for a basic is OK, but maybe a bit
The 3 for 80, tails fails, flip paralyze is SUBPAR at
Overall, not a very impressive card. There are better
Giratinas out there I think.
Modified rating…2.5 out of 5.
Limited Rating…3.5 out of 5, it is a big hitter with
colorless costed attacks. The darkness weakness really
