You ever wanted all of your Pokemon
to have Delta Evolution all at once? Or maybe even be
able to evolve them all without having to use up a Wally
Supporter during your turn? Do you like playing Grass
Pokemon, but think that VirGen was the last good deck?
Well look no further than Forest of Giant Plants to ease
your fears and worries!
As you might have guessed, Forest
of Giant Plants has the power to grant all of your Grass
Pokemon in play the ability to evolve into the next
stage up whether it's the first turn or you just put
them into play! If M Rayquaza-EX is a prime example of
how effective this tactic can be, you can probably
imagine all the rampant growth that can take place
simply from this card!
Suddenly, your Basics will become
Stage 2 with just three cards (this Stadium,the Stage
1/Rare Candy and Stage 2 in hand), and that could be as
early as your first turn! Or better yet, how about those
Mega-Evolving Grass-types? Suddenly, BAM!! Something
like M Venasaur-EX can come down Turn 1!!
...not that anybody would be
playing M Venasaur-EX or anything...
But luckily that's where this set
comes in. It's got stuff like Ariados and Vileplume and
M Sceptile-EX that all wildly benefit from the growth
this card provides! And that's not even including stuff
like M Heracross-EX from Furious Fists, Beautifly from
Roaring Skies - or a devastating new archetype popping
up in Expanded revolving around the Dark Shiftry from
Next Destinies (something to keep in mind is this
affects your Grass Pokemon in play, so a Grass-type
Nuzleaf could evolve into a Shiftry regardless of
Pokemon, beware! You're playing the
forest now, and they've got some new toys to play with!
Standard: 3.5/5 (a fabulous card
for Grass decks that will make them SURGE with new
Expanded: 4/5 (keep in mind though
that you still need all the right resources with it to
Limited: 4/5 (if you end up with
more Grass Pokemon, you could run this pretty
Arora Notealus: Now how many times
has a giant forest sprouted out of nowhere in Pokemon? I
feel like that's happened a few times before...oh well,
maybe I can find that wild Celebi I've always wanted to
find since I was a young boy back in the day when
Pokeballs had to be screwed open and closed!
Next Time: Out of the forest and
into a...hey, where is everybody?!
