Did we save the best till last this week?
Rapidash 4 is really a set-filler card with no use at
all as far as I can tell. It does have a no Energy
attack which would be great early game but . . . it’s a
flippy get-Energy-from-the-Discard attack and, well,
early game you are not likely to need that (or have any
Energy in the Discard either). Its other attack is a
vanilla 20 damage for [R]. No effect and nothing to make
you want to play this card.
Couple all of that to low-ish 70 HP and X2 Water
Weakness, and you have a pretty useless Pokémon. At
least it has free retreat, which is a bonus as you would
never really want something this terrible as your active
There are many, many better cards. There isn’t a single
reason to use this.
Modified: 1 (why? Just why?)
Limited: 1 (still no reason to run it)
Ok, that’s my reviews finished for a while. I’ll be back
after Worlds. I hope you can all get to a prerelease for
the next set. There are some very nice cards in the set
and it will be interesting to see what new decks people
will be playing next season.
Wish me luck!
