Thundachu Claydol Hidden Legends

Overview: Claydol Claydol Claydol, I made it out of clay, and when it's dry and ready, Claydol I shall play. Now, getting down to buisness. Claydol's PokeBody, Primal Pull is actually not a very good one, because it affects you to. As long as Claydol is your active pokemon, each player's evolved pokemon (yes, even yours) pays 1 more energy to attack. Sucks. If it wasn't both players, it might actually be good. Then again, it is only if Claydol is active, so it could be worse. Then Muddy Eye does 10 damage times the number of basic energy attached to both Claydol and the defending pokemon. Can be good assuming you aren't going up against Sneasel with all darkness in Unlimited ';/. Weakness is Psychic which means a few things could get in the way like Gardevoir. Retreat of 1 is not very bad, and 80HP for a stage 1 is very good as well.

Unlimited: Whatever happened to "I'd rather use base set gastly"? ;/. 1.5/5

Modified: The PokePower pretty much eliminates any hope that this card is good here ;/. 1/5

Draft: Because of the lower ammount of evolved Pokemon here, I suppose this could be pretty good. The attack could also be pretty nice too. 2.5/5

Sealed Deck: Because there aren't many evolved pokemon in Sealed like draft, and there are ZERO special energy cards in Hidden Legends, this card isn't half bad here. 3/5




Claydol is lame. Sorry. But ya know, think of a clay doll trying to fight off a thing that looks and acts like Inferno from the original Soul Calibur (thatís my bad description of Blaze  K ) It goes up like ashes, with primal pull or not. If I speak of the wrong claydol here, the fighting one is even worse. Sorry!



Johnny Blaze Claydol Ė Iíll be reviewing the Holo psychic Claydol here. As a stage 1 with 80 hp and a nifty little Poke-power that makes your opponentís evolved Pokemon pay 1 more energy to use their attacks only while Claydol is active. Im surprised not to see this card get more play. There hasnít been a card released before with this type of Power and if you can keep Claydol alive long enough then your opponent will have a hard time attacking. Its Muddy Eye attack is very similar to R+S Gardevoir. It will do 10 damage times the amount of energy attached to the defending and active Pokemon. Once Team Play gets rolling Im sure to see more of this card being played. Again this card suffers from its weakness. You can always play Ancient Tomb to prevent that.

Unlimited: 2/5 This card may be decent to play in some sort of weird lock deck where you make Energy Removal heavy and your opponent will have a difficult time attacking due to Claydolís power. Other wise not enough powerful attacks to make a real difference.

Modified: 2/5 Gardy owns Psychic in Modified for this card to make a big difference.

Limited: 3/5 A stage 1 with a power like that is pretty decent in draft.

Team Play: 4/5 This card gets the best rank once Team Play becomes more popular. 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.
