Grrrr... Tyrogue's mortal enemy/rival. Elekid does NOT own tyrogue. Sure, it's a great card, and doing damage without energy is elite, but owning Tyrogue? That's a dream.

Elekid's baby rule is phat, and damaging from the bench is radical. 
RADICAL I SAY. Seriously, it's a good card. It's a nice TecH in any MMF deck.

In modified however, it's horrible. It's pichu bait. The mere fact that nothing is weak to lightning in Modified makes me laugh at people who play it. It's =/

In unlimited, I don't exactly see the point. It's a waste of space.

Unlimited Rating: 2.5/5
Modified Rating: 2/5
MMF Rating: 4/5
Draft Rating: 5/5 (BROKEN :/)

OHHH I just dont really get "it". I think it's one of
the best babies. 

Being able to damage without using energy is
ludicrous. In Standard 

theres pichu to counter it. In Modified you can use it
to get around 

focus bands. In MMF it makes a good anti Dark Blast
tech. But why would 

you use it when you could max out on tyrogue? ;/ I
like it best in MMF. 

Without needing energy it can fit any deck. 
In Draft it's very useful while powering up your
Standard 3.5/5
Modified 3/5
MMF 4/5 (It still cant compare with tyrogue ;x)
Elekid - This card seems to defensive for me... offense ownz all.  If you're not having enough energy to do an attack, you must be doing something wrong.  Of course it evades focus bands and such but it's still too defensive for me.  This might be a 59th or 60th card I put in my deck just to round it off  but definatly not a focus.  Baby stats are nice, especially with a focus, making killing it a 2 flip scenario.
Standard: 3
Modified: 3.5
MMF: 3.5
Draft: 3

Does anybody else just want to jam one of these things into a wall socket and see what happens?

In unlimited, I can't exactly say it's bad, per se, but there is better 
stuff to be had. It does have upsides: It's not an attack, therefor it gets past the baby rule. It needs 0 energy. That alone makes it good. It's just normally you'll want to attack with something you made the deck around. It's a staple in No-Energy Stalls, and works in other decks too, especially low energy ones. 2.6/5

In modified, it's pretty much the same scene. I haven't really seen it used effectively yet. It's not really a Star-Card, exactly, it's just sort 
of...there. I don't really know what to give it... and 2.7/5 is the first 
number in my head. That's the rating, and I'm sticking to it. I don't see any big change for new modified, either.

In limited, it's good. Not the baby I would want to open (coughcoughCLEFFAcoughcough), but it gets 3rd-4th pick. 3.5/5 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.
