Gogoat (XY) 

Hello and welcome to another week of reviews here on Pojo’s CotD. Flashfire is just around the corner, but we still have some XY stuff to look at. We kick off the week with Gogoat, the Pokémon that you can ride around the ultra confusing sprawl of Lumiose City. It’s a fun gimmick but I doubt anyone uses it much. 

You could say the same about today’s card as well (the part about not using it much, that is). The main thing it has to offer is Lead, an attack which puts up to two Supporters in your hand from your deck. This may sound good in a format where we are so dependent on Supporter draw, but the fact is that it is much too slow to be of any use: evolving into a Stage 1 and using an attack to grab your Supporter for next turn just isn’t good enough and far inferior to using Jirachi EX, a Basic which gets you what you need right now. 

There’s not much else to recommend Gogoat: the HP and second attack are mediocre and the retreat cost of two would be a pain for anyone trying to use the card to help them set up. Not that anyone would, of course. 

Rating 

Modified: 1.75 (a rubbish Jirachi EX)

Limited: 3 (more solid here, especially if you pull some Supporters)

Gogoat.

Unlimited 150 review.
Since Black and White we’ve seen quite a few of this variety of Pokémon… an Evolution with the attacks of a starter Basic. On a Basic Pokémon Lead would be a really useful attack to start the game with but as it is it’s like a really poor Sableye (Stormfront). It doesn’t use the Supporter right away which can sometimes help avoid shuffle effects like Judge or Red Card and most obviously, being a Stage 1 kind of defeats the idea of a starter, if you can get it into play in the first place you’ve probably already found some way to set up.

 

I have focussed on Lead so far, if its other attack was really special it could be a good attacker with an interesting backup setup effect. Unfortunately, Charge Dash seems to have been designed as the backup attack, it’s quite poor for a fully Evolved Stage 1 these days, especially with the recoil.

It would make a decent starter as a Basic, try Genesect Plasma Blast #10 for a similar Pokémon that shows what a difference being Basic makes.

 

Rating: 2 (Put Lead on a Skidoo instead then perhaps it’ll be good.)
