OK, Friday the 13th, let’s let a White Cat cross our path.

This card is best comboed with Blastoise, who can get the energy out, or even a Rhyperior Level X, to guarantee 100 damage.

On its own, its attack is a glorified rage attack, which heals a bit. OK, I guess.

The 3 for 60 rear kick is good, and a nice shot once in a while when needed.

Weakness to fighting is OK, most things will take out the 90 HP kitty in a shot or 2.

1 Retreat cost is fine too.

I know, boring review…I promise to INSPIRE next week, after I report on being beaten to a pulp playing in Tennessee States!

Ratings – Modified 2.5/5 Good in a few decks, must be avoided in all others.

Limited – 3.5 out of 5. Would actually allow a modified deck to play a more limited energy count, and the attacks could be pretty good here.

Have fun this weekend at States, all of you WILD and CRAZY guys (and gals)

Today’s card is a colorless 90 HP 1 retreat cost Delcatty. What fun.

The attacks on this Pokemon are a 1 colorless attack doing 10+10 more for each damage counter on Delcatty, then remove 20 damage from Delcatty. A perfect match with its Poke-Power, I’ll explain that later. Its second attack is a solid 3 colorless for 60 damage, no effects.

Now the Poke-Power. The Poke-Power is called Power Circulation. The effect is Once during your turn (before you attack of coarse) search your discard pile for up to 2 basic energy cards, show them to your opponent, and put them on top of your deck in any order. Then (this is the fun part) put 2 damage counters on Delcatty. A great match with its attack, or Blastoise’s Poke-Power (if you don’t know what the latest Blastoise does, please look it up, you wont be sorry).

Weakness, a terrible thing. A 20+ weakness to fighting could be a problem with Machamp and Rampardos running around in the format. And it is. But if your attacking with this Pokemon in any other reason then a last resort…your dead anyway.

Retreat Cost, A single energy. Speaks for itself.

Ratings:

Modified: 2/5 A Pokemon that fits in some decks but not others. Sadly, the only deck I see it fitting in is Blastoise.

Limited: 4/5 If you get this card out in a draft you have a tank that can hit, as well as remove damage.

States is Tomorrow people! Are you ready?

Delcatty Lv 53

This is quite possibly the greatest support Pokemon to come from Platinum, even with Dialga G LvX also in the set. This card can automatically allow for Rhyperior LvX to do 100 damage for no energy, as well as allow for 2 energy to be attached per turn in a Blastoise deck. It can even recover energy to be obtained with Evolutionary Vitality in a Feraligatr (MT) deck. If anyone still plays those.

It's single energy attack for up to 90 damage is very convenient and easy, though you will lose some valuable bench help.

If it didn't put damage on itself, allowing for it to be easily shut down by Ampharos as well as KO'd by spreading cards much easier (Abomasnow, Magmortar, Dusknoir), it would be even better.

4.5/5 Modified

This is a colourless stage one with decent attacks and 90 HP, as well as the ability to pick out the energy you need from the discard. 4.5/5 Limited
