Card of the Day

looking, like movie promo Pikachu."
promo Pikachu really isn't that cool looking, though.
what does it have to do with Lucky Stadium, anyway?"
do you end your sentences with prepositions?"
well, I end lots of things."
that doesn't make any sense!"
a minute, whose even saying this stuff?"
Let me just say first, to avoid confusion, this card is not
legal in tournament play, at least not that I know of.
Maybe in Japan it is. This bilingual card was handed out at the
Tropical Mega Battle in August, in Hawaii, to all participants of the
Tropical Mega Battle. There are 8 other Japanese Lucky Stadium cards,
all with different art, all with the same text, but this is the only
one that has English and Japanese text. The card is a Trainer
(Stadium) and reads:
player's turn (before he or she attacks), that player may flip a coin.
If heads, he or she draws a card. Discard this card if another Stadium
card comes into play."
Again, this is not legal
in tournament play, as there are so few, but I'll look at it as a
playable card, anyway. Friday, I leave for the STS, I'll return
Sunday, and then write about how I did. So there won't be a card of
the day for a few days, again. When I get back, I'll choose a cool
card of the day, and then we'll start voting again. Today, I want to
know how you guys think I'm gonna do at the Super Trainer Showdown (if
you think I'll make it there, that is). Vote at the bottom of the
above again. This card does NOT specify a limit to the number of times
you may flip a coin. Since it doesn't, I guess this card could be
considered totally broken if it was able to be used in tournament
play. But why would they make you flip a coin if you could use it an
infinite number of times? Doesn't make sense. I'll just assume you may
do it once per turn.
a Lass, your opponent AND you yourself may have a problem recovering.
Save the flip until after you Lass. Then, go for a card. Technically,
you should have better chances of getting what you need first, since
you get a chance to get a card first, but it's a flip, so that theory
is a hard one to defend. Coin Flips are an evil part of Pokémon, and
believe me, coins don't like me, and dice hate me even more.
It Just Gets you a Card!
a fast deck, you may need the PlusPower, Gust, whatever. This could
help. But don't forget, this is a flip, and more importantly, it can:
Help Your Opponent! (This isn't a good
card pretty much gives an equal advantage to both players unless you
can flip or draw significantly better. Drawing a card is such a basic
part of Pokémon that it's very difficult to make it significantly or
even somewhat advantageous to you over your opponent.
My Rating (1- Almost
completely useless, 5- Useable, 10-Totally broken)
Assuming there is no limit to the
flips you may do per turn (which is probably wrong), this is a 10.0
card. I mean, you can play it as a card that basically reads
"Draw as many cards as you need." Anytime you need a card,
play it, and go through your deck to get it, then maybe Nightly a few
times. You're playing with your whole deck, they aren't. Oh, and
before ending your turn, so you wouldn't help your opponent, you could
play another Stadium to remove it.
card isn't playable, anyway. It's just a fun card. Assuming one flip
per turn, I'd give it a 4.0. It's
just hard to make it advantageous to you, and it's a flip. I guess
it'd be a nice thing to take out other stadiums, but it could help
