Crobat G (Platinum)

 

And the runner –up in our Top 10 countdown is . . . little Crobat G.

 

Mediocre HP, terrible Weakness, pathetic attack . . . what on earth is this card doing on our list?

 

Oh right . . . THAT Power . . .

 

Put simply, Crobat G’s Flash Bite PokePower turns this card into an easily searchable, re-useable way of putting a damage counter on any of your opponent’s Pokémon. Doesn’t sound too spectacular when you spell it out, but Crobat G wins games.

 

It wins games by making sure that you are not 10 damage away from a KO and a Prize. It wins games by avoiding Gengar SF’s Fainting Spell. It wins games by taking an easy prize from a heavily-damaged Pokémon on the bench without even needing to declare an attack. Run Crobat G with a few PokeTurns and it can do these things repeatedly.

 

A good test of a card’s versatility and utility is when it becomes widely used outside of the deck for which it was originally designed. This has most definitely been the case with Crobat G as it can often be seen in decks alongside the likes of Gengar, Kingdra, and Gyarados, just to name a few of the most common.

 

Crobat is one of those cards that is unique and useful enough to see play for as long as it is in the format.

Modified: 4.75 (a potential game-winner in almost any deck)

Limited: 4.75 (amazing here too, especially with Honchkrow G and PokeTurn from the same set)

Crobat [G] (Platinum, #47) 

Crobat [G] serves as a support Pokémon for its Flash Bite Poké-Power.  When you play Crobat [G] from your hand onto your bench, you may place one damage counter onto one of yor opponent's Pokémon, creating spread damage on your opponent's side.  I prefer to use Team Galactic's Invention G-105 Poké Turn (Platinum, #118) to recycle Crobat [G] into my hand and use Flash Bite again if the situation needs more spread damage. 

Its Toxic Fang attack for {P}{C} poisons the defending Pokémon, and places 2 damage counters instead of 1 on it between turns.  That extra damage can help hurt your opponent's Pokémon between turns, and enhace other Pokémon's attacks dependent on the poisoned status, i.e. Toxicroak [G] (Platinum, #40)
