Floral Crown (Generations RC26/RC32) is a Pokémon Tool which, at the end of your opponent’s turn, heals 20 damage from the Basic Pokémon to which it is attached.  The bold text is to draw attention to why this card is only good if you want to make your Pokémon look prettier if you have a vivid imagination.  Right now the game is about hitting hard and fast.  Soaking damage, either with increased HP or protective effects, is far preferable to healing.  Still Floral Crown might have some use.  Being restricted to Basic Pokémon shrinks its potential niche, but the big thing is that instead of triggering between turns it only triggers at the end of your opponent’s turn.  This means it can’t even be as nice as one would hope for Basics that inflict self-damage. 

Don’t bother with this for Standard or Expanded.  If you are fortunate enough to find a Limited Format event using Generations, then this finally becomes a good card.  Damage output tends to be slower here so healing 20 at the end of your opponent’s turn might actually happen before the Pokémon equipped with Floral Crown can be KO'd or discarded.  It might even get to trigger multiple times. 

Ratings 

Standard 1.15/5 

Expanded: 1.1/5 

Limited: 3.5/5 

Summary: Floral Crown is a brain new Pokémon Tool and I wanted something that didn’t take as much time in case the previous two reviews took longer than anticipated.  Plus I was finishing up my taxes yesterday.  So in that respect Floral Crown has served its purpose.
