Reviewed June 12, 2002

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



A stage 1 that does an average of 40 damage for three energy. You might as well use one of the Scythers that are Modified legal (the one from Discovery, if I recall correctly) and get the same benefits at less cost. The only thing you would get with this is the possibility of metagaming Weakness in a rainbow Eevee deck. But that is unfocused and will lose in the long run.

Unlimited: 1.75/5

Modified: 2.0/5

Draft: 1.75/5

Lord Gothmog

I don't know why they felt it neccessary to leave out the fairly decent Dark Eevee evolutions in favor of the Jungle ones. Let's just get this out of the way now: Dark Jolteon is better, even if it has lower HP.

In unlimited, it's just not worth playing. The weakness to fighting make it Gligar/Tyrogue bait, and the 3 energy cost make it SER bait. No good  reason to play it. Light Jolteon is way better, too. Sometimes the original gets surpassed. 2/5

In modified, Big Lightning is small. It would get it's roughshod run by just about any deck. 2/5

In limited, there's very little electric to make it worth drafting, and even if you get something good, Jolteon is only going to average 40 for LLC. Not all that good. 2.5/5


Wednesday: Jolteon

    This card is decent. I like the first attack, the attack that all three of the eevee evolutions have in LC. Quick attack is an OK attack. But that second attack reminds me of Crobat without confusion... and I love Crobat. 20x4 flips is nice for 3 energy. Very decent card. Weak to fighting is a problem, but not as big of one as it was before Neo Genesis. One retreat is beautiful.

Standard Rating: 3/5

Modified Rating: 2.5/5

Draft Rating: 4/5

Croconaw88 Standard Quick attack is average. 70 HP for a stage 1 is decent. Weakness to fighting means you have a good chance of getting Tyrogued.

In modified you need higher HP. Pin missle is just a weaker cross attack. Being a stage 1 and neo discovery Eevee makes it easy to get out.

In draft being able to do an average of 40 by turn 3 is very nice.

Standard 2/5
Modified 2.3/5
Draft 3/5

BigChuck01 Jolteon

What can you say about Jolteon?  He's just... average.  HP is average, Quick Attack is average, Pin Missle is average.  He gets an average rating. 3/5.

In modified, average doesn't cut it.  If you're going to play an Eevee evolution, go with Umbreon or Espeon.  Why flip 4 coins for an average of 40 when you can flip 4 coins for an average of 40 and confusion. 2/5

Jolteon is average here as well.  Same as in Unlimited. 3/5
Jolteon - I always did like this card.  It's a very solid card especially since noone really uses fighting anymore.  Hitmonchan, Tyrouge, and Gligar are about all you could expect to see from fighting and even those are afraid of cards like scyther and MP mewtwo.  It's first attack isn't the best being a basic quick attack, but it's second attack is solid for only 3 energy.  In unlimited, there isn't much it is strong against but energy removal slows it down with it's double color cost.  In modified, still not much is weak to it but much faster...still flipsy although... Crobat would outplay it in modified for various reasons.  In draft I would definalty draft it.  The only reason to not take it in draft is eevee is colorless and when someone doesnt have a perticular pick for their deck they can take the colorless one guilt free. 
Unlimited: 2/5
Modified: 3/5
Draft: 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.
