Ok! Eevee her for review time! Today we'll be reviewing the king of the slackers! It's Slaking! Ok, time to look at the stats and attacks!

PokÚ-BODY: Lazy Paunch - If Slaking used any attacks during your last turn, Slaking can't attack.

Attacks:
(C)(C)(C)(C) Best Dash -150 - During your opponent's next turn, any damage done to Slaking by attacks is increased by 50 (after applying Weakness and Resistance).

HP: 150HP
Stage: 2
Type: Colorless (Normal)
Weakness: Fighting +30
Resistance: none
Retreat Cost: (C)(C)(C)(C)

Ok, time to review this guy! Yikes.... Where to start? I wonder just how accurate my earlier comment was? Ok. We'll look at it's Poke'Body, Lazy Paunch, first. Well, it's definitely not my first pic for a PB.... Pretty much useless and game damaging if you ask me. And what's worse is when you combine it's Poke'Body with it's 4 energy retreat...

It's attack definitely won't help you get around it's Poke'Body either. It's one and only attack, Best Dash, probably would OKH any opponent (except for a few) but it's back fire is just way too damaging. It add 50HP damage to your opponents attacks!!! Add that up with Rampardos and you've got a one way ticket to the discard pile! X.x Not even it's whopping 150HP could save this guy.

In all I strongly suggest that you stay as far away from this guy deck-wise as possible. It may look awesome at first glance (if you first glance only includes it's attack damage power) but overall the only thing this card would help ing doing is letting your opponent draw six prize cards. Oh well, I guess no set with cards as good as Shaymin LvX, Skymin LvX, and all the other could have only great cards.... ^^'

Slaking isn't too awful, but I think it's just too slow for this format. Play it with Dialga G Lv.X to remove the annoying body. This card could also be a good counter for Dialga since it OHKOs Dialga. Dialga has trouble standing up to one hitters. But against anything else, Slaking is far too slow.

3/5

This Pokemon Slacking, as usual is lacking.

150 HP Stage 2 used to be an “ooh”, not anymore.

Weakness to Fighting, once OK, not anymore.

Retreat cost of 4, and not hope of help from Moonlight Stadium unless you have a Weavile (SW) to turn it dark, not happy.

One 4 energy attack for 150, which increases damage done to Slaking the next turn…um…lacking (already used that joke, I know).

Pokebody that STOPS it from attacking again…well, can be countered with Dialga G Level X, I know, but there are SOOO many better combos for that card.

No boost to help the attack. No doubling energy of any type right now. Yes, you COULD use memory berry to use a Vigoroth or Slakoth attack, but the Body still is there. You can’t attack with Slaking (even with Memory Berry) twice in a row!!!

This is the definition of….a bad card.

Ratings…Modified 1.5/5 Not the worst, but CLOSE to it.

Limited…1/5 The worst.

Thanks to all 158 people who came and partied at the Missouri States Tourney!

Next in line….Regionals on April 18th in South County Center in St. Louis, Missouri! More details on that to come!!!

Vince.
