We end the week with a look at one of
these new Restored Pokémon.
You know, the ones that give
the mechanic a chance to work. This is in complete
contrast to the appalling luck-based lottery of Twist
Mountain and the unaided Fossil Item cards.
This is all thanks to the Prehistoric Call Ability.
Simply dump Tirtouga in the
discard pile via Ultra Ball, Juniper or similar and use
the Ability to place him at the bottom of the deck where
he can be unearthed with Cover Fossil. It’s a bit of an
inconvenient way to get a sort-of Basic out, but way
better than it was before.
Once Tirtouga’s out, you
just have to hope that he can last a turn for you to
evolve him, as the attack is plain awful. Unfortunately,
there isn’t really a Carracosta
around that makes you want to play him

to work with)
Limited: 2 ( difficult to
make it work here)
