5 is the highest rating.

Surprise Time Machine!

Modified 3/5 - This card, again works in specific decks. Marowak and Dark Marowak is a great example. I leave the other possibilities to the rest of you.

Limited 2/5 - Limited usefulness for drafting Dark Tyranitars. Otherwise, you shouldn't be using this card.


Johnny Blaze
Surprise! Time Machine

Team Rocketís Surprise Time Machine. This card is cool because I donít remember a time when you could de-evolve a Pokemon then evolve it again on the same turn. This card is handy when you are running an ex and non-ex counterpart. Just for example, if your Kingdra-ex is facing off against a Wobuffett with Safeguard then you can Time Machine for a regular Kingdra and attack the Wobbs.

Of course do not de-evovle when the next stage would be knocked out because of damage counters!!

Unlimited: 2/5 Ė I donít see much use of this card here. Iím sure that there are some that players will come up with. There is always the reason to de-evovle your Pokemon-ex so that it can attack a Pokemon with Safeguard.

Modified: 3/5 Ė Again here this card is situational. Say you are playing a Sceptile deck and you need the EX-version then just Time Machine for it.

Limited: 1/5 Ė Little chance of getting this off in draft. You might want to use it as a way to get rid of status effects though. 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. 

If you have cool game tips, a killer deck, or breaking news ... send them to us.  We'll post it on the site ... and give you all the credit.
