(This week's card
This card cruelly destroyed my
shot at a free trip to Seattle.
In unlimited, there is no need for it,
because there's another card that does the same thing. It's called
"Gust of Wind." 1.5/5
In modified, it does well as an Anti-Gatr,
and stands up pretty well to everything else. The power is just
evil. Free reusable Gusts on a card that can do 50 for 3. And the
lower evolutions are great too. 3.7/5
In limited, it's a bomb. Free gusts are
worth drafting a Stage 2 for. You pick what you want to kill. Just
too good. 4/5
truly, a unique card. A 50% chance Gust of Wind with a Pokémon
Power, and even higher when multiple Erika's Victreebels come in
play. Of course, in unlimited, it's simply one of those
cards that is expensive to attack, doesn't deal THAT much damage,
and gets KO'd on 65.675% by a Sneasel with two dark. It
isn't a reliable attacker. Of course, you can play it
without grass, just for the power. But that ends up not even
being worth it. You're left with a Mean Lookable Victreebel.
In the old modified, this was great. The Careless Tackle
Erika's Bellsprout with the dark one hit KO'd the Totodiles with
the dark, and had some sick first turn wins versus baby Pokémon,
too. The Erika's Victreebel was good versus Feraligatr
because it played Chaos, taking away Gatr's needed trainers, and
managed to keep it's Double Gust control using the Victreebel's,
which is simply a winning situation when there's a Chaos Gym in
play. Of course, it works with Murkrow, bringing out things
that are vulnerable to Mean Look, and Mean Looking over, and over,
sometimes forcing them to use all their Double Gusts to get out of
it, and then just Mean Looking again.
In unlimited, 2/5. In old modified, 4/5.
