Pokemon Card of the Day
& Reviews below
Ratings are based
on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst. 3 ... average.
5 is the highest rating.
I REALLY want to give this card a decent rating... I mean just
look at the picture... isn't that just so darn cute? ^_^
A Baby with a Retreat Cost! What has the world gone to?
Energy Patch seems very useless to me. I mean, just why? It's like
an Energy Trans in a form of an attack and it requires one COLORED
Promo Pichu and Expedition Pichu are both useless. Stick with the
original Genesis version...
Unlimited Rating: 1.8/5
Modified Rating: 2/5
Draft Rating: 2.5/5
Art Rating: 4.5/5 <<< I should start doing this since we have a
lot of great art in Expedition... ~_^
Just look at that pichu for a sec. Doesn't it look so adorable?
LOL. Well on to the analyzing part. 30 HP is low, but standard for
the babies since of the rule protects it. Bottam stats is noting
new, BUT it has one retreat? No0!! hahaha. Guess people up at hq
didnt want to make babies stronger and weakened them with this
retreat cost. And the attack, well it is just wierd. First time
babies actually had a colored energy attack. Move an energy from
one of your poke to another poke that you have. This could be
comboed with something. Dontknow what, but thats the point of the
game. You, the people reading this are here to explore.
Unlimited- Doesnt have as much potential as the other pichu,
ko'ing my slowkings =/. Well you could use it some how. How is the
big question here. But then again, 30 hp with no damage attack and
1 retreat jus basically makes it slightly better than a magikcarp.
MMF- Gen pichu still rules over this one. Moving energy around
might help, but i dontknow how. Also, double gust is kind
pointless with expedition pichu. Back then, you could use double
gust and have all babies on your bench. Now with this pichu, well
you have a retreat cost... 2.25/5
Draft- It looks purdy, but its probably not going to win you the
game. There's better stuff. Pass this up unless you have explored
and found a secret that is awesome... 2/5
Also, a late happy birthday to my friend, pokemaster1110(you could
probably guess by now why he chose 1110 to be put in the
No offense PoJo, but leave the picking to us from now on -_-'
Overlook: As all baby pokemon, 30HP. Most likley a good idea for
Focus Band with it. I like the attack. For 1 L energy switch 1
energy from 1 pokemon to another. Not as good Neo Genesis one.
This one doesnt even do damage. =/ Plus, WHATS THAT LITTLE STAR
UNDER THE RETREAT COST!? Really, I never thought I would see the
day when a baby pokemon with a retreat. This ruins the great
Double Gust Trick.
Unlimited: If your gonna use Pichu, use Neo Gen. one . =/ 2/5
Modified: No comment. =/ 1/5
Unlimited: Wow. Pichu seems to be one of those cards that has no
obvious reasons of playing. Kind of like any Seaking line...anyway
Pichu. Why would you attach a Lightning Energy card to Pichu, then
use its attack and move another Energy card? It just doesn't make
sense, moreso in Unlimited. Unlimited has a lot of speed, and
Pichu doesn't seem to keep up with that speed. The only thing I
would play Pichu is when I know my Pokémon is going to die. Kinda
useless I think. However, I could be wrong. If you find something
useful just email me, etc. But in the mean time, it'll just sit in
a shoebox with the Seaking lines. =/
Modified: Pichu isn't that great in Modified either. I just don't
see a use of exchanging ONE Energy card. Maybe if it was two or
something higher than one, so it could have a Venusaur like feel
to it. But, only one won't give you much of an advantage. The only
card I see this being played with is Expedition Ampharos, and even
then it is only mediocre. Probably not the best choice for playing
babies either. Once again, I bet it would be better off swimming
with the Starmies or some stuff like that.
Draft: There are some better uncommons and commons than this rare.
This could probably be compared to the usefulness of Neo: Genesis
Caterpie. It could work, but it's not likely. Plus, it's a rare.
If you can get it, just trade it to some people who are collecting
sets you'll probably get a better deal out of that.
Monday - Pichu
Ewww... a baby, and a RETREAT COST? What the heck is "Energy
think they finally turned baby pokemon in what they should've been
first place; BAD. =\
Limited: 1.25/5 (The baby rule is a nice stall tactic =/)
