Goldeen SV

Hello and welcome to another week of Pojo’s CotD. As you know, we are doing some theme weeks while we wait impatiently for the first Black and White set, and this week Matt has chosen Pokémon that look like household pets so . . . ummm . . . let’s get on with that shall we?

We kick off the week with Goldeen SV. Goldeen is basically a goldfish (sort of), and the one from Supreme Victors is the only legal one we have . . . so that will have to do as far as justifying this review goes.

Goldfish make decent pets: low maintenance, don’t take up much space, and it’s quite relaxing watching them swim around. As a Pokémon card, this Goldeen makes . . . a good pet as well: even easier on the maintenance and space. You certainly won’t want to use it to actually play a game. Leaving aside the fact that the only legal Seaking is also rubbish, this Goldeen has low-ish HP and two low damage vanilla attacks (one of which is flippy, and the other one requires Goldeen to be damaged). Throw in a Weakness to Luxray GL and you have a pet that is going nowhere fast but the discard pile.

Oh well, at least that’s better than what happens to useless goldfish in real life. Remember, don’t flush your unwanted Goldeen down the toilet . . . all that cardboard would not be good for it.

Don’t worry – not all of this week’s cards are this bad.

3/21/11: Goldeen (Supreme Victors)
 
Welcome back to another exciting week of Cards of the Day! This week's theme is Pokemon that resemble pets, or something like that. Basically, we're reviewing cards based on Pokemon that would be the equivalent of actual pets in real life, and ignoring that if it were an option, everyone would have an Eevee for a pet. :/
 
We start today with Goldeen, who is, well...it's a goldfish. Currently, it's the only Goldeen in the format, so if you're running Seaking for some reason, you'd have to play this card. Which is pretty lucky for Goldeen, since as far as basics go, this isn't very good. Flail isn't good on a 50 HP Pokemon, and while you could attach a Memory Berry on Seaking and use it, Seaking only has 90 HP and a Lightning Weakness, meaning that it's at risk to be OHKO'd. Seaking does have Endure, which might let it live, but it's flippy, and chances are, it won't return KO with Flail anyway.
 
There's also Fury Attack, which is your standard 'flip coins for damage' attack. I can only think of two things going for Goldeen in the format:
1.      It's decent in Limited.
2.      Knowing the history of Goldeens, the next Goldeen might be even worse.
