Copycat - Expedition

Ratings & Reviews below

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


This card is an amazing draw power, in certain situations of course.

In Unlimited, this might not be as good because your opponent usually doesn't have a lot of cards in his/her hand due to Comp. Search or Item Finder. This card doesn't work well with Lass as well...

In Modified, it's great! Usually both players will have a lot of cards in their hand. You can simply use up stuff in your hand and then replenish it with Copycat.

In Draft, you should learn by now that draw = good. Copycat can also act as an Elm to prevent from decking, which might happen in 40-card decks...

Unlimited Rating: 3/5
Modified Rating: 3.8/5
Draft Rating: 5/5
The Poke`mon Master 1110  Copycat:

Err... sota like an elm, a reverse imposter oak and sabrinas gaze in one. =/ Its alright if your opponet has a good healthy hand, which is not good in the first place, or its good if your really desperate for drawing, which if your decks are half decent you shouldn’t be.

Unlimited: Why on God’s green earth would you play this if you have stuff like elm, oak and bill? Sheesh. 2/5

MMF: Geeze it isnt even good here. Its better in MMF than in Unlimited, but then again, so would maintenance =/ Still cant beat Bill and Elm as the main drawers. 2.5/5

Limited: Hooooaaa... here we go! THIS is where you wanna use it. Always pick drawing, always. No no, dont argue, just do it. What? You say there is a dark energy in the pack? Tough beans, dude. drawing power. 4/5


dontknow09 Friday: Copycat

Here's another trainer card from expedition. Oh look, its Duplica. CopyCat is something like a Sabrina's Gaze, except you shuffle your hand and draw the number of cards in your opponents hand. Sounds pretty good but lets see how it deals in the formats....

Unlimited- Not much use here. Why use this when you have Oak and other drawing power. You could use this to mess around and play your luck but other than that there are other methods of drawing power. 2.5/5

MMF- CopyCat is just a little bit stronger here, since theres no Oak. You do have Elm though, but it has its side effects. However, using this card really depends on your opponents hands. Then there's Bill and other Bills. O well, I guess it would be stronger than Elm if your opponent Eeeeeeek'd last
turn. 2.75/5

Draft- CopyCat is much stronger here than the other two formats. Pick this up, because your gonna need all the drawing power you can get. Theres high chances that your opponent will have lots of cards in their hands so CopyCat is gonna be very effective. 3.25/5

Thundachu Hey! Stop Copying me!

Unlimited: Me, I prefer Professor Oak but hey, thats just me. Still I guess it could be good. Bill Computer Search and Oak are what I would suggest using. 2/5

Modified: It is good in Modified... for a suporter. All in all it would be a great card if it wasnt a suporter. 3/5

Draft: lol. Even as a suporter it is good. Draw power in draft is always good. 4.5/5
Friday - Copycat

One word describes this. Broken.

I think simply, it's the best trainer to hit the scene since Professor
Elm. May be EVEN BETTER. You will see nearly every deck containing at least 2, maybe 3 or 4 of these. Definitely great against Cleffa. Definitely great against ANYTHING. Especially since you can practically "elm", and still play trainers. Just not supporters.

In unlimited, 5/5. In MMF, 5/5. In Draft... OHHH MAN this is the best

card period. Your opponent usually has BIG hands. 5/5.

OK, the art on this card is just weird. What's with that person in the background with a Pikachu costume on?

Copycat is one of the better supporters. Possibly as good as Elm. It's great in modified when your opponent has just Elmed or Eeeeeeeked and has a 7-card hand. I personally love this card in Modified. You should probably go 4-2 to 4-4 in Modified with Elms and copycats in every deck. You can still play other Trainers the same turn you copycated (as long as they're not Supporters =D), as you can't with Elm. I think Copycat will be the second best drawing card in Modified (Elm's first :P)

In unlimited, few players will use this. Most will max out on CPU searches, Oaks, Elms, and Itemfinders. there just wont be room for Copycats. I suggest keeping it that way.

In Limited, DRAFT IT!!! I said this on Wednesday and I'll say it again; DRAFT ANY TRAINER YOU CAN GET!!! This thing kills in draft. In fact, any drawing card kills in draft.

Unlimited 3/5
Standard 4/5
Modified 5/5
Limited 5/5

It's Friday!!!
This card is only as good as your opponent.  Well, like trainer like pokemon as I always say.  For those of you that don't know, Duplica, the person on the card, was a ditto trainer on the TV show.  Copycat allows you to shufle your hand into your deck and draw as many cards as there are in your opponents hand.  So, it is only good against skilled players(like me :) ) that are already probably beating you.  I think Copycat is a last resort card.
Unlimited:3/5(lots of card drawing here)
MMF:       2/5(Not really usefull)
Draft:     2.5/5(use it as a proffesor oak's research if you have to)
Copycat: Before I say anything else cards that allow me to draw cards from my deck are excellent. This card can be played when I want to so it allows me to draw cards according to the other players hand, if he has a lot I can draw a lot.
I don't see Modified formats bothering the play of this card unless it is excluded.
Unlimited: This card rocks! I can destroy my opponent with combos like Erika, Rocket's Sneak attack, Lass, and Imposter Oak's Revenge. Build them up some huge hands then draw my cards and tear them down as low as I want. The options are endless so do I like it, Oh yeah!
Draft: Again I have been to the draft and lost too many times because I have trouble getting the cards I want out of the deck. Getting to look at cards is always good.
The only reason I am not giving this a perfect is that nothing is ever perfect.
Unlimited: 4.5/5
Modified: 4.5/5
Draft: 4.5/5 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.
