G Scope 

Today we look at the second ACESPEC that is exclusively for use with Genesect EX. The fact that we reviewed G Booster has part of our top 10 countdown and have only just got around to this one might tell you quite a lot about the card. 

Actually, that’s unfair. G Scope isn’t horrible at all. Like G Booster, it offers Genesect an alternative attack as long as this Tool is attached. In this case it is a 100 damage snipe at one of your opponent’s Benched Pokémon. Doesn’t seem bad, does it? Unlike the other Tool, it requires no discard so you could use it every turn . . . as long as G Scope stays attached and Genesect isn’t knocked out. 

And that’s the problem, really.  100 damage is an awful lot to be doing to a Benched Pokémon, but thanks to HP power creep and Basic EX’s it is often not enough to one-shot a Pokémon that is giving you trouble (like Blastoise or Hydreigon), giving them time to set up a replacement. It will get rid of Garbodor, which is nice, but even then you would almost certainly be better off dealing with the immediate problem of their active Pokémon, which will likely be threatening a KO next turn. For that, of course, you will need G Booster. 

If G Booster didn’t exist, then you might have seen this in Genesect decks. It’s good at KOing Garbodor and picking off damaged/weak Pokémon for easy Prizes. Put that against something that will get you a guaranteed KO on an immediate threat, however, and it’s no contest. 

Rating 

Modified: 2.25 (good card and all, but this format prefers brute force)

Limited: 1 (if you don’t pull a Genesect EX); 5 (if you do)
