Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day


Dark Crobat - Team Rocket Returns

Date Reviewed: 12.10.04

Ratings & Reviews below

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

Dark Crobat:

This is the second Dark Crobat. The first appeared in Neo Destiny with none of it's pre-evolutions. They had been released many sets earlier, in the original Team Rocket set. Because of this, it was never playable in Modified format. Team Rocket had already been rotated out.
This is an interesting card, but not strong enough to build a deck around. You're going to be able to Poison just about everything your opponent promotes to the Active slot, and that's a pretty good thing to do. It's Dark Drain attack not only spreads damage all over the field, but also keeps Dark Crobat healthy. Unless your opponent can One Hit KO him, he can survive a long time with this technique! Finally, he can also take out that damaged heavy hitter that's hiding on the bench with Skill Dive. Finally, it's 90 HP are very healthy for a Dark Pokemon.

It's not a powerhouse, but it is a card that gives you a chance to use a little strategy and show off some skill.
Unlimited: 3/5
Modified: 4/5
Limited: 4/5

Dark Crobat

90 Hp and its Black Beam Power is auto poison as long as Dark Crobat is active. At 1st Dark Drain and Skill Dive don’t seem like game breaking attacks but with a swarm of Crobats and a resistance to Fighting this a Pokemon that has to be reckoned with. Just watch out for its new weakness to Lightning.

Unlimited: 2/5 – It might not be enough to stab off Electabuzz and Zapdos.

Modified: 3/5 – Don’t count this pesky bugger out. I have seen a Dark Crobat deck make Top 4 at a City Championship and it was very annoying to play against.

Limited: 4/5 – With such arrays of Attacks with its Power it is a great pick if you are lucky enough to draft its basic and pre-evolution. Plus it is a great looking card! 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.
