OK, here is the line I find the most interesting of all of the SP Pokemon, the Palkia line.

I have reviewed (I think) the level x, but here is the underling…which has a few things going for him,…and a few things against.

1st Top/Bottom Stats – 100 HP Basic with a 2 retreat cost and a weakness to lightning.

Weakness to lightning, still may be OK.

2 Retreat cost is fine, given the first attack.

The attacks, are quite cool.

1st attack 20 for 2 (or 1 with Energy Gain), and switch Palkia G with a benched Pokemon. What a BRILLIANT attack to use after you have leveled up!!

2nd attack – 50 for 3 (or 2) plus an auto 10 to each of your opponent’s benched Pokemon. Like Prinplup but BETTER!

I can see this little guy working his way into the following decks – SP, Empoleon 2009, Delcatty/Blasty. Just has a lot of potential.

This whole Palkia Line may be the MOST overlooked line in the Platinum set…for now.

Ratings…

Modified…I am going 4/5 here. I have faith in the Blue beasty

Limited…I am going 4/5 here…It has all the attributes I look for in a limited card!!

There you go! Decide for yourself…Look at the Level X and make your own decision!
Pokmeman Palkia G Lv 78

Another Big Basic. Too bad it is so overshadowed by its DP counterpart, Dialga. This card just doesn't quite cut it. It has good HP, but its attacks let it down. They are expensive, and lack the ability to perform anything gamebreaking. It's LvX is good for its power, but seeing as you are going to want to have quite a few Pokemon on your bench in a Galactic deck, it is overshadowed there.

Its only real use is to Lv Up into Palkia G LvX, who may find its way into different sorts of decks like Dusknoir did.
2/5 Modified

Slightly better in Limited because of its high HP ability to switch out with its attack.
3/5 Limited.
