Beheeyem (Plasma Storm) 

Is there intelligent life out there in the universe? Mathematically, yes, considering how mind-blowingly huge it is. Does this mean that probe-wielding aliens visit Earth in UFOs? No, of course it doesn’t. Unless you live in the Pokémon Universe, that is. They have already been visited by Deoxys, and now Generation V brings a new interstellar species of Pokémon: Beheeyem. 

Beheeyem is a Psychic Type Stage 1 Plasma Pokémon . . . which is a lot of things to be. Psychic Weakness is bad because it means that both this card and its pre-evolution get destroyed by Mewtwo-EX (yes, it’s still very popular in Big Basics decks). Actually, that 90 HP means that a lot of things will just KO it with or without the assistance of Hypnotoxic Laser. Being a Plasma Type is never a bad thing, but it’s hard to see how Beheeyem would make the best use of the support that’s out there. 

For a single Psychic Energy, you can use Lock Up to do 20 damage and prevent the Defending Pokémon from Retreating. Dragging out a non-attacker (like Garbodor) or a Pokémon without Energy could buy some time I suppose, but the format is full of decks playing multiple copies of Switch or including Keldeo-EX, so it’s unlikely to be more than a minor irritant to an opponent. For an extra two Energy of any Type (which makes it fairly expensive), Beheeyem’s second attack, Damakinesis, does no direct damage, but does allow you to move six damage counters from any of your Pokémon on to the Defending Pokémon. Honestly, this sounds a lot more interesting than it is. If you could spread the counters around how you liked (to set up KOs on multiple Benched Pokémon) it would be a bit more attractive, but even then, it’s hardly worth such a big Energy investment in a weak Stage 1. In a format where OHKOs are fairly common, there isn’t even a guarantee you could use it.

Basically, this is one of those gimmicky cards that looks like it offers some combo potential, but is a long way short of where it needs to be in order to work in this format. I don’t think we need to worry about the competitive TCG being invaded by Beheeyem any time soon.

Limited: 3.25 (Lock Up could get very annoying)
