5 is the highest rating.
A cool card to review. Too bad it's not legal in Modified...
In Unlimited, you can use it in a Brock's Ninetales/Raindance deck
so that you don't use the power. Tidal Wave is really good as it
only costs 4 Energies for 70 damage with NO drawbacks whatsoever.
Definitely Raindance material.
In Unlimited, it works well in a Raindance deck. Wastes a lot of
space though. 3/5
In Modified, no longer playable. N/A
In Draft, really powerful. It's only a Stage 1 and Magikarps would
probably flock your way easily. You can almost guarantee that you
can still get Karps even if it was your last pick! The power might
be bad though since if you flip tails you're gonna have to restart

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! YES! THIS IS MY ABSOULUTE FAVEORITE CARD
EVER IN THE HISTORY OF THE PLANET I CANíT BELEIVE HE ACCUALLY
PICKED HIM THANK YOU PAUL, errmmm, dontknow09 I mean. Whew. Now
onto the card. I may not be able to rate this. Sheesh, this is
going to be compleatly biased, you know. I combo this with Muk,
and oh mercy... 70 straight damage per turn from a 100 hp MONSTER!
This thing, once going, just rips through most decks. And I mean
RIPS through! This guy is ownage even more that the almighty
Unlimited: Oh dang. This is sneasle territory. Oh, wait, thats
right, he can take out sneasle with ONE shot! Boom! Bye-bye
Sneasle! Boom! Seeya later wiggly! Boom! Ta ta Buzzy! Yes, the RAW
MMF: NOOOOOOO!!! ITS BANNED! AAAAAAHHHHHH! Of course if it
wasnít... oh MAN! This guy? Kingdra who? 0/5 :(
Limited: Well, Muk isnít around in this set, and who drafts Fossil
and Gym Challenge? I mean really, have you ever heard of something
like that? Twisted. But if you get one out, oh, just imagin your
opponetís face! Sweet, no? Even without Muk, the power shouldnít
be to much to worry about, unless you are a sorry flipper *cough*
Jim *cough* 4/5
Artwork Rating: Good ole` Ken Sugimori. The standard by which we
all judge artwork. His work generally shows little action or cool
backgrounds, but still nice, and this Gyrados looks as feirce as
can be! 4/5
Overall Average Rating: 3/5 Ouch. The zero in MMF is the only
reason he isnít REALLY high.
A very random card out of my box. If the Nintendo Power gave me a
card, the review would be based on it. Oh well =/. Misty's
Gyarados is a
brute force. 100 HP, resistance to fighting, 70 damage! But then
your flaws, the power that can go against you, weakness to grass,
Misty's *MAGIKARP* !!! That's always the problem with all Gyarados'.
Unlimited- Hey, it looks good. You can combine it with muk to shut
power, so you have less disadvantages. BUT, theres SER,
energies!! I've seen some people use blastoise to raindance
Gyarados, but the **Magikarp** usually is KO'd before that
happens. But if
Misty's Gyarados is out and there are no SER for some reason, it
MMF- Can't use it. Well, lets just pretend for now that it is jus
modified. There is no SER, so that's good. But no matter what
there's always the stinkin **Magikarp**! There are still some
that can take down a Misty's Gyarados. Such as a Double Gust on an
Gyarados, or even worse, an empty **Magikarp**. Well, the gyarados
decent job, but not good as other waters, such as gatr and kingdra.
Draft- Yea right. I've gota be kidding myself. You would have to
jus to pull atleast 2 magikarp in the gym packs. Even if you pull
you need 4 energies. Still, once out, it will rule. But you know
unlikely that is =P 1.75/5
Well, thats it for my week =/. Atleast i get Thanks Giving Break
school. Which means I can get Primed all week :) Go0 Metroid
anyone notice that I used Ho-ohs' Japanese name on Wednesday?
No, I do not live in Japan, and no, I'm not totally behind
everyone else in the Poke names. I was a little spaced out at
the time =\ . On to the card!
Poke power is deffenetly strange. If you flip 2 tails, you lose
your Gyarados, but your opponent doesn't get a prize. I'm not
going to count this as a plus for obvious reasons. Another
minus is the weak basic thingy. 4 water for 70 damage doesn't
all you peeps still playing unlimited, there are better water
stage ones around.
