Ratings are based
on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst. 3 ... average.
5 is the highest rating.
I personally don't like any of the balls.
They're unreliable or don't do enough to justify using them. If
you want to take a risk to help you set up without using
supporters, go for it, but I'll take consistency over potential
Dual Ball is an ok card… I always
like Non-Supporter trainers, because there are so few, but
friend ball is better than this.
Dual Ball is a flip. That’s not
good. 2 flips however, that means you have a 75% chance of
getting at least one basic. I s’pose that’s ok….
BUT THEN AGAIN……
We do have a little card called
So in the end, poor ol’
Dual Ball looses to faster, more plentiful, and more insured
cards like Dunsparce, Wurmple, and maybe even Pokemon Fan
Club. Of course, it looks like Dual Ball is going to stay
with us (as all old and rather useless cards do) seeing as
it was reprinted in Magma/Aqua.
^^^ The bottom line ;o
Dual Ball. What can I say? Other
than that it is like two Pokeballs... almost. ...too bad almost
only counts in horseshoes, and a number of other things that
don't apply here.
Unlimited- This card most certainly
doesn't apply here. Many cards are better than this, do I even
need to list them? I will leave you with this though, Dual Ball
can help with bench filling, but you didn't need me to tell you
that, did you? 1.75/5 here.
Modified- A bit better here,
potentially. Getting your big hitters out first gives you a huge
advantage over your opponent. Doesn't it suck when you can't
find the basics for you big hit. Well 25% of the time you get
two basics, 50% of the time you get one, and 25% of the time you
get, well, a potentially ripped card. I think a 2.5/5 fits live
a glove, or sock.
Limited- Pick it, pick it good. You
know the drill, trainers like this can most certainly be game
breaking. Unless one of the other cards is an absolute, I must
have this card, card, I suggest taking this. 3.25/5 here.
Dual Ball –
One of the worst of the balls out there. Too flippy. Simply there
are better ways to search for Basics. The only upside that it is a
Trainer and can be used after a Supporter. Unlimited (1/5): There
is just so much more ways to search for basics. Too much draw
power to even prove useful. With Cleffa, Trader, and other draw
cards just a waste of space. Modified (2/5): Again too many better
ways to get basics. Dunsparce, Wurmple from Dragons for Grass
Basics, Wynaut, and now HL Igglybuff along with Pokemon Fan Club.
All of these outshines Dual Ball. I have seen some people play it
though in Modified. And like I said before it is a regular Trainer
so that you can play it after a Supporter. Limited (3/5): It gets
the highest ranking here. The gamble to get 2 basics on a coin
flip in draft is pretty useful. Normally in draft you should have
enough basics anyways.
