Reviewed February 21, 2002

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  
5 is the highest rating.


I don't know about anybody else, but my coin tends to flip around 50/50 on GOOD days. That means Tyrogue isn't on my top ten, but I recognize that with good flips, it's good. Kills Jigglys, Fairys, and whatnot first turn for one energy, but only on heads. I'd rather have a solid CC-for-20 attack, like Gligar, or Wooper or something. Still, it has baby rule, and free retreat, plus it evolves to Hitmon____.

In standard, I give it a 3, considering that Chansey, Clefable, and(again)Wigglytuff are stomping around like rabid bunnies. But only if you have a coin that doesn't flip tails 10 times in a row. 

In modified, what's there to be weak to it? Look out, Lt. Surge's Electabuzz... 1.75/5


I don't know. Tyrogue is popular, but he just doesn't quite do it for me. If you get a Baby vs. Baby thing going, you can sit there for quite a while flipping away and nothing happening because then you have to get two heads for the Attack to succeed. So, that doesn't seem like all that great a Baby killer...

On the other hand, he certainly is splashable and can take out those Clefables and Chanseys pretty well without exposing himself to too much danger.

I'll vote with my personal taste. Others may rate him higher, but for me, he's not a first pick.

Standard: 3.5/5

Modified: 3/5

Draft: 2.5/5 (based on personal experience at the MBI2. I did well in spite of Tyrogue!)


Tyrogue. Another of my favorite underrated cards. Many people say... "psh, why use a card that will never flip 2 heads in a row to FTKO a baby =/"

Never? Tell Martin_Moreno (Mr. I can flip 11 heads straight!) that Tyrogue is useless! In fact, tell him you'll never ko a baby with it. In fact, I think this card is one of the best babies! Just behind Pichu and Cleffa.

Standard Rating: 4/5 ~ Anti-Chansey, Anti-fable, Anti-Wiggly, Anti-electabuzz, the list goes on and on =P

Modified Rating: 4/5 ~ Anti baby -_-, anti-smeargle (FTKO's galore -_-) 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.
