Thursday: Omanyte

What a deal. Seeing your opponents hand could be useful to trap but with cleffa there's no point. A stage 1 with 40 HP is just bad. I wouldnt waste time using Fosil Egg or Mysterious Fossil to get it out. In Modified or MMF a tech Caterpie can take it out in one hit.

Omanyte - Another card that's not gonna see much play.  Such small HP, evolves from a trainer... is a 30 HP Evo. Wow. Weak. The attack is a basic weak low evolution's attack.  It's got a solid pokemon power... that's all it has.  I really wish this power would have been printed on a half decent card.  In draft it's still nothing, it takes fossil egg's or mysterious fossils.

Let's see, Omanyte, A power that lets you see your opponents hand is pretty decent. But 40 hp for a stage one is horrible! Its attack is useless and its evolution is just as bad. To top it off, it's weak to grass and has no resistance. Unless WOTC makes a good Omastar, this card will never see much play.

Thursday - Omanyte

This card is odd. I don't see much point in it. 40 hp, which is mediocre. But it's power... THAT's good. Well, sorta. Seeing your opponents hand CAN be good in some formats, but pointless in others. Overall it's not a bad power to have... but the pokemon doesn't really do much for itself. I can't say it's a good card.

Today's Card of the day is the ever so loved Legends Collection Omanyte. This card (first introduced in fossil), has a Pokemon Power that is just plain Broken.

Being able to constantly see your opponents hand is just game-breaking. I mean, with a Power like that, Omanyte is in EVERY TOURNAMENT WINNING DECK.......right?

WRONGO. The only good attribute this card has is canceled out by everything else.

A 40 HP Pokemon isn't going to stay on the board long. It's not like it's techable because not only does it have bad HP, but a retreat, and has to evolve from a Mysterious Fossil.

Water Gun is just plain bad. First turn 10 damage, and for maximum damage needs 3 energy. This is hideous.

In Unlimited it will get gusted. Boom,

In Modified, it will get Zapped, or Trigger Poisoned. Boom.

in Neon, It will get...ANYTHING'ed. Boom.

Now for draft. Being able to see what your opponent has in store for you is nice. But then, here comes the whole "evolve from the fossil" thing. So once again, this card loses its use.

Over all: Awful

Unlimited- 1
Neon- 1
Draft- 2 is here to provide guidance to all Pokemon trainers out there.  Whether it's the Gameboy Game, N64 or the Trading Card Game, provides all the wisdom you desire.
