Monday Crobat:
    Dude... I got to pick CotD's this week. Wow. Can you believe what cards I picked? Probably my 5 favorite in the game... right? :) Crobat is a great card in Modified. In fact, it is one of the big archetypes. And of course, he's my favorite card period at this moment in time.
    Triggered Poison is a great attack... if it was like Plasma, I'd have fainted by now. 20 for one energy is great, and the whole poison effect is very nice against cards like Steelix, who need the third energy to attack.
    Cross Attack is VERY good, averaging 40 and confusion? For THREE ENERGY? "Freak out", because "I don't get it", and "I resign."
    In essence, Crobat is one of the strongest cards in Modified. Resign to it. =)
Standard Rating: 2.5/5
Modified Rating: 4.999/5 (I'd give it a 5, but I'm sure I'd have complaints.)
Limited Rating: 3/5
BigChuck01 Crobat

Crobat is one of the better stage 2's out there.  Triggered Poison is a nice attack and Cross Attack is GREAT!  Confusion is very deadly.  A bit slow though in Unlimited.  2.5/5

Modified is where Crobat shines.  Takes out the ever-popular Gatr.  High HP, free retreat, and no Removals makes him great! 4.5/5 here.

in draft, hes too hard to get out.  You'd have to be drafting Neo 3 and LC or Rocket just to have a CHANCE at getting him.  Bad rating cause hes hard to get but good rating cause he owns if he gets out gives him an average 3/5.


Crobat was probably one of the best counters to Feraligatr in MF before LC was printed. Now that Breeder is legal in MF, Crobat decks are much better. You still can't use Cross Attack on turn 2, but a 2nd turn Triggered Poison is really nice.

In Unlimited, this Stage 2 was never that good. Cross Attack is ER bait and you can't rely on Triggered Poison all the time.

In Modified, it's much better here. 3rd turn an average of 40 damage and confusion is pretty good. This Grass Pokemon is also weak to Psychic, intead of Fire, which is a big plus. As usual, Crobat decks can abuse Double Gust really well.

In Draft, it's not that good. It would be hard getting the Stage 2 out. It also depends on what you're drafting with. With LC/Base, you might get Breeder to help you. The stats is amazing, especially in Draft. 

Unlimited Rating: 2.3/5
Modified Rating: 3.6/5
Draft Rating: 2.6/5
Crokanaw88 Monday: Crobat

In Standard 40 HP will get you FTKoed. Nice bottom stats resistance to fighting and free retreat. Trggered poison is a great attack 1 grass for 20 and possible poison. Being a stage 2 it wont see much play.

Crobat 0wNz in MF. It's one of the top 3 decks. It's a great anti gator. Cross attack is great an average of 40 + confusion.

Both of its attacks cause status effects which are great in Draft.

Standard 2/5

Modified 4.5/5

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.
