Reuniclus (Plasma Blast) 

I’m pretty sure I am not the only person who is puzzled by the fact that Reuniclus, one of the best defensive Pokémon in the video games, has such terribly bad HP in the TCG. Maybe it’s some kind of joke? 

Speaking of jokes, whoever named Reuniclus’s second attack certainly had a sense of humour: Telekinesis of Nobility is maybe the most ridiculous/pretentious attack names I have ever seen on a Pokémon card (it probably works better in Japanese). It’s actually not a terrible attack either. 70 damage is pretty good for a punch-and-run that enables you to switch out Reuniclus for something less vulnerable (a Safeguard Pokémon like Sigilyph DRX or something with Silver Mirror attached maybe?). You could always stick a Silver Bangle on the card and start hitting EX Pokémon for 100 to get the two-hit KO. While you wait for Telekinesis (which is thankfully DCE compatible), there is always Barrier Attack which does 30 for a single Psychic Energy at reduces damage to Reuniclus by 30 on the opponent’s next turn. It’s not bad could just about save Reuniclus for the turn you need to set up the Switching strategy. 

To be honest, Reuniclus is nowhere near as poor as I expected it to be. It is definitely one of the best punch-and-run Pokémon we have right now, but the really bad HP, and the fact that the Basic (Solosis) only has 30 means that the strategy is a bit more fragile than competitive play requires. Still, you can certainly have some casual fun with this Pokémon.

Modified: 2.75 (140 HP and I might be tempted)

Limited: 3 (First attack is good here, but Stage 2s are not)
