Well, sheesh, if there has ever been
worst artwork, please someone tell me =/ 80 HP is solid, and the
first attack is real nice. But the second attack? Good Lord, I
just don't know what to say. Look, WOTC even went to the trouble
to say "put damage counters on" so you can even use metal on him
or any defenders. Sheesh.
Unlimited: First attack is good
but that doesn't mean he should be played. 1.75/5
MMF: Yipes! He is even bad here.
Sheesh. What was TPC on when they invented that second attack?
Limited: See above =/ 2/5
Fun Factor: Fun? 1/5
The Bottom Line: 2/5
The Poke`mon Master 1110
Weezing is... not bad. It's decent. Decent HP, decent attacks,
decent Basic... not so decent retreat cost... >_<
Unlimited: It needs at least two energies to attack, so it's a SER
target. And it's a Stage 1. Its Psychic weakness is again a plus,
and Foul Gas is a nice attack (although Base Set Koffing has an
attack with exactly the same name, with exactly the same effect,
and ALMOST exactly the same cost. =\) You either Poison or Confuse
the Defending Pokemon. And nothing else. No damage. >_< Misfire is
too risky to use in this format in my opinion. (That's if you
manage to use it at all.) 1.5/5
Modified: Ok, SER is absent. Maybe Misfire is an interesting
attack here? No it isn't. First of all, it's a turn 3 attack,
unless you're playing a weird Meganium or EX Venusaur combo.
Secondly, if you flip tails, you put 6 damage counters on Weezing.
No matter the amount of Metal Energies attached, you STILL put 6
damage counters on poor Weezing. That's bad. :/ Even if you use
Gold Berry to heal yourself, you still have 2 damage counters
left. If you flip tails again... you KO yourself. >_< Ok maybe you
can TRY Gold Berry and Healing Fields, recuperating up to 6 damage
counters. But, your opponent will attack too, so that's not too
useful. >_< The problem with this Pokemon, really, is the apparent
rarity of Grass weakness in this format. If Grass weakness were
common, then this Pokemon would have been more playable. Still,
not by much, though. :( Oh, and did I mention Psychic weakness,
which Espeon devours? :/
Draft: This is a rare Pokemon with a Common basic. The Koffing, in
my opinion, is average. Both of the Weezing attacks,
unfortunately, are not splashable. Although that isn't too much of
a problem, since Grass Pokemon from Expedition are very playable
in Draft. Maybe you can use this Pokemon when you're nearing the
end of the game. You can deal a massive (for this format) 60
damage to take the last few prizes. Foul Gas is nice too, despite
the abundance of anti-status effects cards in Expedition. If you
manage to get 1 or 2 Weezings, you MAY consider using it as a
cleaner, although the fact that it's non-splashable and that it
has a not-so-good Basic might discourage you from this idea. 2.5/5
No0, more finals. Weezing: HP-High, higher than other versions; 2
retreat- so so; 1st attack- cool, win win; 2nd attack- avoid, too
flippy. Not worth damage.
Unlimited- Might be able to slip across with 1st attack. Doubt it
though.2nd attack.... no reliable. 2/5
MMF- Again, 1st attack might do good. 2nd attack can be kamekaze
(if thats how you spell it) move. That is all. 2.24/5
Draft- Key to pokemon, reliablity. 1st attack will certainly help,
but not win game. 2nd attack... yadah yadah yadah. 1.99/5
GL too all of you who take finals. Its almost over.
