Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day

Dark Omanyte

Thanks to Birgir for the 
Card Scan Today

Name: Dark Omanyte

Pojo's Average Rating -
Standard: 2.75 (based on 3 reviews)
Modified: 2.92
(based on 3 reviews)
Draft: 2.67
(based on 1 review)
Reviewed February 25, 2002

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


Neo Destiny is barely on the market, and I have neither played with or against the cards from it, so I will be giving tentative ratings for the week.

That said, Dark Omanyte is theoretically an okay card. Sniping is not something to be found often, and never in water. Use with Fossil Egg, Rocket's Hideout, and you have...Umbreon. Only not as good. 

In standard, it could be good in a Raindance or something. Or not. Let me know if someone breaks it. 2.25/5

In modified, I don't see anything helping it except no ER. 2.5/5 In draft, You don't always get Fossil Egg. 1.5/5


Here is a little Baby killer for you.

One Water energy cost and do 10-30 damage to any of your opponent's Pokemon, depending on how many Water are attached. granted, it's not going to live long, but I could see it being TecHed into a Blastoise deck or to pick off your opponent's damaged bench late in the game in a modified game.

It would also be decent in Draft. Getting to choose your target is always powerful in Draft since Gusting cards are hard to come by. ONLY Draft if you can get decent MF or Fossil Egg support. Otherwise, you'll never get it into play!

Standard: 3/5

Modified: 2.5/5

Draft: 3/5


Dark Omanyte is crafty, seriously! I mean think about it... 40 hp, which is a low, can become 60 hp due to Rocket's Hideout. It's attack can ko any baby pokemon on the bench with 3 water! The ability to do damage anywhere is awesome.

Standard Rating: 3/5

Modified Rating: 4/5

Draft Rating: 4/5 if you can get the fossil eggs ;P 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.
