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

This, is 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. 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.
