Monday: Miracle Berry

In Standard there's hardly any status effects. It's just not worth playing. Gold berry or Focus band are just so much better than Miricle

berry. Its easier to Switch or retreat to end status effects.

In Modified Focus Band and sometimes Gold berry are the only tools used in most decks.

The same goes for MMF except Gold berry is used more. 

Draft has a lot of status effects so this is where it could be used.

Standard 1/5
Modififed 1.5/5
MMF 1.5/5
Draft 2.5/5

Miracle Berry
The power to remove a special condition from a Pokemon is very nice, especially in team battles. It disables your ability to attach a focus band or Gold berry to the same Pokemon which is its only bad point. Overall it's not a bad card, but it will never see a lot of play.
Unlimited 3/5
Modified 3/5
MMF 3/5
Draft 4/5

Status was never something really popular in Pokemon, especially in Unlimited.  Of all the Pokemon tools, this one's one of the worst.  Having a Gold Berry or Focus Band is simply more advantageous.

In Unlimited, status is BAD.  Just use a Switch, Scoop Up, or Double Gust if you want to get a status effect off.  1/5

In Modified, it's a bit better.  Crobat and Promo Mew are used for their confusion, and other things are used for poison.  Full Heal Energy is better for TecH against these decks though.  1.5/5.

I guess its OK in draft.  People try to draft things that inflict status so this could see some use there.  2.5/5

Monday - Miracle Berry

This card is ...miraculous? Or is it... dubious. Well, it's one of the two for sure! I'm sure it's the latter. This card isn't really that good... at all. Why use this when you can use full heal energy? Seriously, if your paralyzed, it's pointless to play it on the turn you were paralyzed on. If your confused, sure play it, so they can confuse you in the next turn? I'm not even going to go INTO sleep.

You know, I don't think this card is good in any format. There might not even BE a card worse than this. I mean honestly, your actually going to play this, and NOT play a focus band or a gold berry? What's your problem?

So, in short, this card... um... chokes on pretzels. Yeah. =\

Unlimited Rating: 1/5
Modified Rating: 1/5
MMF Rating: 1/5
Limited Rating: 1.1/5 (WOW, a big .1 point difference. What a DEAL. =p)

Miracle Berry

First introduced in the Neo Genesis set, this card hasn't made a very big impact in the game.

It's effects is the same as a Full Heal. Full Heal wasn't even played that much in the first place.

In Unlimited, there is no need for this card at all. Status effects aren't a big part of the environment.

In Modified and Neon, Gold Berry and Focus band are the tools to play. Having Miracle Berry on a card will not let you play either of the other two, so this card is once again not worth it.

In Draft this card isn't half bad. You don't know what to expect, and since there aren't many picks for tools this is actually a keeper.

Great "just in case" card for drafting.

For the other formats, just stick to Full Heal energy. It is much better.

Unlimited -1.
Modified -1
Neon- 2
Draft- 3 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.
