Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day


Claydol - Team Magma vs Aqua

Date Reviewed: 6.10.04

Ratings & Reviews below

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

Ausen  Claydol

Meh. More draft fodder. 80 HP won't help you anywhere else, and the attacks aren't spectacular. It's a solid draft card, with decent attacks for your fighting deck.

Unlimited 1/5

Modified 1.5/5

Draft 4/5

Jermy101 There are 2 Claydols so I will review the semi decent one.  The power lets you transfer energy between magma pokemon so this is good in a Team Magma deck with lots of Team  Magma pokemon.  His attack should do 60 damage most of the time, as long as you make sure your hand is big.

Unlimited - Psychic type!  Just like Base Gastly! 1/5

Modified - Ya there are team magma decks but they don't work.  Even Team Aqua decks are better. 2/5

Draft - Pretty good attack and power. 3/5

Card: Team Magma's Claydol(Holo)

HP: 5/5 Yes, this is all dandy and fine. 80 HP is good for a stage 1 Pokemon like this.

Type: 5/5 Yes, it is obviously a psychic type, and the Dark is on like all holos from that set...In fact I think it is on all holos from that set =/ . Anyways, fine.

Weakness/Resistance/Retreat Cost: 10/10 Uh-huh, yep, this works. Not that this matters, but I think they meant to put a third retreat cost. The 2 colorless energies are slightly orientated to the right...not that this matters for gameplay, just thought it was weird ^_^" .

Art: 9/10 Woo, 3-d-y....I might have made it lower because it is rather bland, but it is SHINY. Holos are shiny. Shiny is good!

Attacks/Power/Body: 35/50 Wow, it's a Team Magma's Manectric. Funny thing is, aqua decks run Manectric for this power, while I don't think many Magma decks do. Maybe just because there aren't many magma decks ;) . But it is a good power, if people would take advantage of it...Dark Hand is ok. 40-60 damage for [P] [C] [C]. Not too bad, but you don't see it in any archetypes, now do you?

Total Score: 64/80

See, I have a whole rating system for Pokemon cards ^_^ . 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.
