OK, here we go! Perhaps the first of the new “power”
cards from Platinum (depends on what the level X does,
This is a 100 HP monster, weak to fire (still fine in
this envio) resistant to psychic (still good) with 2
One for 2 energy (1 if a certain trainer is released),
does 10 damage and stops your opponent from playing
trainers or stadiums…wow, no rare candy, no Galactic’s
Inventions, no switch, no warp point…can’t drop the
“everlute” stadium…could really hamper a setup deck and
put them one full turn behind.
Second attack for 3 energy (2 if a certain trainer is
released) does 50, or 50 if the defending Pokemon has 2
or more damage counters on it.
Nice, but the money is in the first attack here. Maybe
to setup the second attack, but keeping the “lock” on is
VERY VERY valuable in this envoi, in that nothing can
get the trainer restriction off. Not unown G, not
evolving, not retreating, nothing.
Makes me wonder if a deck much like the old Mewtric (Manectric
EX) deck is going to make a comeback. Trainer
Modified. So many reasons to use this card. SOOO
Limited..100HP big basic pokemon with relatively cheap
Here we go! Stay tuned tomorrow for EVEN MORE!!
Hey! First of all I'm Eevee! Onto today's card! ^^ Ok,
so, today's card is Dialga G from the Platinum
expansion. It's number 7/127.
Now, let's take a look at it's attacks and stats.
(M)(C) Deafen : 10 damage; Your opponent can't play any
Trainer or Stadium from his or her hand during your
opponents next turn.
(M)(C)(C) Second Strike : 50+ damage; If the defending
Pokemon already has 2 or more damage counters on it the
attack does 50 plus 20 more damage.
x2 Weakness to Fire, -20 resistance to psychic, and (C)(C)
Ok, as far as attacks go this Pokemon has two sides.
It's first attack, Deafen, isn't all that great when it
comes to damage. However, the ability to keep your
opponent from playing any Trainers or Stadiums for one
turn could come in handy. Especially with the Poke'+
cards that came out in Stormfront. It's second attack,
Second Strike, sounds like a pretty good attack for
decks that spread damage or to use one or two turns into
the round. With the ability to do up to 70 damage in one
turn it's definitely a hard hitter for a basic Pokemon.
Ok, onto stats. With 100HP and the fact that it's a
basic I would suggest it right then and there. Most
basic Pokemon are lucky to have 80Hp let alone 100Hp. It
also has a great resistance to Psychic Pokemon which is
a plus considering all the pixie (mesprit, azelf, uxie
Lv.X's) and Mewtwo decks going around. It does however
have a x2 weakness to Fire Pokemon. Generally this won't
be too big of a problem considering you don't see as
many Fire decks as we did when Magmortar Lv.X first came
out. You do still see some tho so you might want to
combo this with a few copies of Bubble Coat (LA-129/146)
to protect it. As far as retreat goes, it is a little
high at 2 colorless energy but considering everything
else I guess it's not a bad trade off. I would however
keep your basic Switch trainer on hand or something else
that will let you switch it out for a lower cost.
Modified: 4.5/5 On a hole this is a pretty good card but
it's higher retreat and double weakness to fire does
take away a few points. Overall tho I would definitely
recommend adding in this card to your decks!
Limited: 4/5 Basically the same for limited as for
modified. just watch out for it's fire weakness.
