& 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 okay, I guess. Tickling Vines would have been a lot
better if it did 10 more damage. Double Kick is not too bad as you
can stall with the 1st attack first. 60HP is not too high and the
bottom stats are not too good either. Resistance to Water is
pretty cool though.
In Unlimited, you can power up the attack a lot faster with DCE.
But, it's ER bait and your DCE could be used for something better.
In Modified, there are simply better Grass Pokemon. Basics
don't do too well here unless they have really high HP or a really
good attack. Unfortunately, Tangela simply do not have either.
In Draft, this card is decent. 1st attack is splashable. 2nd
attack just need one colored Energy. If you don't get anything
better, this card is pretty okay. Rating: 3.2/5
This card is
slightly more than what you expect of a Tangela. It's got 60HP
(a rare sight for a Tangela) and it's Water Resistant. Its
attacks are nothing to boast about, however, and it still has
got a Retreat Cost of 2. Seems like Tangela doesn't really like
to budge from the Active position. :/
Unlimited: This card
isn't good at all in this format. Besides having attacks that,
at best, leave much to be desired, 60HP isn't exactly exciting
in this format, and its retreat cost hurts it. And it's
basically resistant to the wrong type. :/
Modified: Here it
isn't bad. If you have a deck that's fearing Water, then putting
this card in it isn't that bad. Its second attack does an
average of 30, which admittedly isn't too good, but... this is
the best Water Resistant Basic Pokemon out there so far, so you
take what you get. Apart from teching against water, this card
has no other real use though.
Draft: It's a common
card, and it's really cool in this format. Its attacks are quite
splashable, and its Water Resistance is nice to have too. I
daresay this Tangela is one of the best cards to Draft in
Aquapolis. A superb pick.
This card kills in draft! It's awesome if you
can get like, four of these in your deck in limited. In modified,
its pretty bad. There's hardly anyway to use it. I mean, a few as
a backup hitter in a grass deck wouldn't hurt. Water resistance is
good in any big basic like him, especially with kingdra running
around. He's good to have against gator. An average of 60 damage
per turn against a gator can be fatal. It's weak to fire, but
fire's not a big deal anymore. There's nothing really that anyone
would use that's fire.
Limited 5/5 (It's too good!)
