Another Xyz Monster, Gachi Gachi Gantestu, a Rank 2 Xyz Monster, who is Earth attribute, of the Rock type, with 500 attack and 1800 defense.  Xyz Summoned with two, Level 2 Monsters.  That's simple enough, but going back to my point of yesterday, (one of many), you're likely giving up two Tuner monsters, who can be used for a Synchro, who is almost guaranteed to be better than this thing.  Now, if this face-up card would be destroyed, you can detach an Xyz Material Monster instead.  All face-up Monsters you control gain 200 attack and defense for each Xyz Material Monster equipped to this card.  For that second effect, it would be nice if there were cards, like for Magic Counters, that let you transfer Xyz Materials to other cards.  I'm not even sure if there is any direct thing like that in Generation Force...anyway, yesterday's card had some playability.  This card, not so much.

Ratings:
 
1.5/5 all
Art:  3/5

Gachi Gachi Gantetsu

Most Xyz monsters are not very powerful. Some Xyz monsters are really, really bad. Level 2 monsters aren't the most common things you see. They're usually only seen in abundance in Synchro decks. It's not quite worth this guy. He comes out with 900 ATK and 2200 DEF, and although he can protect himself twice, he becomes more vulnerable each time, and 2200 DEF is just under the magic 2400, which is under the magic 2500, which is under the magic 2800. Granting each of your other monsters 400 (and then 200) extra ATK and DEF doesn't do too much, either, but it's not something that can be dismissed instantly.

If you can manage to summon Gachi Gachi Gantetsu and another strong monster, you're in a good position. He's most easily summoned through Quillbolt Hedgehog and Nimble Momonga/Giant Germ, and is a great boost for Ojama decks (what?). Aside from that, you won't see this Rank 2 Xyz in many Extra Decks.

2.8/5
Art: Sometimes I just wonder, "What is that? Where did it come from?"
Fun Fact: I like the fanslation "Exceed" much better than the official "Xyz".
Tomorrow: It's a pattern.

There is not much to say about today’s Rank 2 Xyz. Gachi Gachi Gantetsu is a veritable meat shield that boosts your monsters stats by 200 for each material attached. Potentially raising the attack and defense of all your monsters by 400 is good, but there are a plethora of continuous spells that boost stats at much less expense than this card. Until more Xyz support comes out the only level two monsters that see consistent play will be ones used for synchro summons or utility in decks to a final goal.

Gachi Gachi Gantetsu

Another of the new Xyz Monsters from the Starter Deck. Gachi Gachi Gantetsu is a Rank 2, so you need two Level 2 monsters to make him. This one's effect is pretty simple. By detaching an Xyz Material, he won't be destroyed, and all your monsters gain 200 to both stats for each Xyz Material on him. A potential 400 boost is pretty good, and double protection isn't bad. The first deck that comes to mind to use this guy is the Agent Angel deck. The Mystical Shine Balls are Level 2, so you can easily make this, and he can boost Venus to a solid 2000 attacker, Hyperion to 3100 and Kristya to a ridiculous 3200. What I like about Exceeds so much is that they are as generic as they are, so they can fit into any deck, and this guy is definitely one to consider.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3.5/5
Agent Angel: 4.5/5 (You can either go Trishula or this guy and a Level 5 Synchro, whichever is better at the time)
