Ratings & Reviews below

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


Overview: IMO, this card is good. For 1 colorless energy if any of your opponent's active pokemon are evolved you can search your deck for any card and put it in your hand. This gives ultimate chances espeacilly if your playing an Entei/Cargo or a 2on2 match. Odds are one of your opponent's basics will be evolved. 60HP is ok for a basic pokemon. The same as delibird(w00t). Weakness to water makes it Feraligatr and Blastoise food and Swampert and Pelliper will pwn it in a second. For 2 colorless energy, Repulsion has a chance of sending the defending pokemon and all cards attached to the defending pokemon's hand. The drawback, you cant do it if yur opponent has no benched pokemon. It would 0wnz if u could though ;/. Retreat of 1 is good for a 60HP basic.

Unlimited: 2/5

Modified(LC-RS) I doubt we are reviewing any more Genesis-Skyridge cards, so I am not going to review for that category anymore. 3/5

Draft: With the lowness of evolution stages in Draft, it could be bad. And the other attack isnt that better here either. 2/5

The Poke`mon Master 1110 

One of the Funkyer pokemon we've seen in a while. Nospass is almost good. The thing that hold him back is that he has to be facing an evolved pokemon, which more likely than not will be something nasty that can KO him in one or two shots. Not really worth it.

Unlimited: No way. There is better stuff for drawing: 1/5

Modifed: Not really worth it. Another binder-warming Rare: 2/5

Limited: Hey, card drawing is card drawing, so take him unless there is a trainer or pokemon you need more. 3.75/5

The Bottom Line: 2.25/5

A splashable little stonehenge ^_^.

Unlimited-  Its not very good here as both its attacks can really only work well against evolutions.
rating--- 1

Modified-  It can be ok here if you dont get too unlucky with the flips, otherwise, stick with your hitter.
rating--- 2

Draft-  Not bad here.  There are a few Uncommons as evolutions which will show up here and there, but Linoone would be all the more effective.
rating--- 2.5

2 vs. 2-  Slighty more powerful here than in modified since there will be two targets!
rating--- 2.5

Multiplayer- same as 2 on 2.  theres not much to say on nosepass,  it isnt very good.
rating--- 2.5 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.
