Thundachu Delcatty R+S Holo

Overview: Yum. We got to pick which Catty we thought was best for this COTD, and the win IMO has to go to the holo from Ruby and Sapphire. The PokePower Energy Draw lets you discard 1 energy card from your hand per turn in order to draw 3 cards. The good thing is it doesn't have to be a Basic Energy, and the bad thing is it can't be used if Delcatty is affected by a Special Condition. Then for 1 colorless energy, Max Energy Source does 10 damage times the number of energy attached to all your active Pokemon. Not very good if Delcatty is only your active Pokemon, but can be good at times I suppose. A weakness to Fighting is obvious being a colorless Pokemon, but a retreat of 1 and 70HP is nice for a stage 1.

Unlimited: There are better draw cards and better attackers in Unlimited. 2/5

Modified: This is one of the most played cards in Modified decks online for the reason being the draw Power. Once per turn you can get 3 cards for 1. A very nice power. 4/5

Draft: Draft this card is god-like. The Power is Draw Power, which like always is VERY hard to come by in Draft, so if you Draft this, definitley play it. The only drawback is that it is a Stage 1, but Skitty shouldn't be hard to come by. 4.5/5

As many of you have already guessed, the COTD today is Delcatty. The theme today, as it was yesterday, is choose of lose. Why? Simply put, I like the way that sounds. Now on another note, my favorite Delcatty is the Rare one from R/S.
Unlimited- Not your best choice as it is an evo with, well, not the strongest of attacks, a weak basic, and fighting weakness. The list is endless of better choices. Most notably, a small, 30 HP, Pokemon, who goes, "Eeeeeeek." 1.25/5 here.
Modified- Undoubtedly combolisious. I just made up a word, but it is fitting, don't you think? Anyway, Delcatty has been around for awhile now so we all now how it can be used. I don't want to be the one to beat you over the head with that so I will just give you the rating... which is a 3.25/5.
Limited- Colorless attack, splashable and decent draft basics, power that draws cards. You should be lovin' this card in draft, and many of you'd do. And if you don't, now is a good time. Okay? 4.5/5 here.
Johnny Blaze Delcatty - Im reviewing the Energy Draw Delcatty as this is the most superior Delcatty there is in my opinion. Unlimited (1/5): Same score as Skitty. I havenít seen too many Delcattys in Unlimited and you probably wont either because of the many methods for drawing cards. Can you say Oracle then Bill? Modified (4.5/5): Im giving this card a 4.5 because the Skitty/Delcatty combo is a must for any Blaze variant that is played out there. Not only in Blaze decks but Skitty/Delcatty combo is also viable with Swampert decks and decks that run the Magneton from Dragons. Of course the Oracle/ Delcatty combo is one of the most broken out there. For those that have been under a rock the past year or so. You play Oracle to find those 2 cards that you need. Then drop an energy, draw those 2 and get an extra one. One of the best combos in the game right now. Limited (3/5): I would probably go for the Cannonball Delcatty here as quick and easy damage is the way to go in Draft. However donít pass up the Energy Draw Delcatty if you pull it.

I must say, although I won't be touching ground on the obviously-good holofoil delcatty, I'm a bit shocked that the averaged-out review was a mere 3.2 in modified, so I'll give it a 4 in modified. Yay-ness. Now for the MAIN review! ^_^

Sandstorm Delcatty is the only one that hasn't been reviewed by the staff, so I'll talk about it. CC for 30 is so white it's poser. However, Ultra Energy Source is your bling-bling in 2-on-2. This guy means business by dealin' damage for all energy in the active positions.

Unlimited (1.5/5): Not very good to take advantage of. T2, Scizor and Sneasel will be doing a LOT more than this =/

2-on-2 Modified (4.25/5): In regular modified, I'd be giving it a 1.25, but meh, better to be nice than not ;x. In my opinion, you could basically play Blaziken/Delcatty in 2-on-2, and be dealing massive damage each turn. It's like a mini gex here!

Limited (4.5/5): IMO, the best evolution in the set. 30 for CCC is a godsend for limited; anything better than a tiny basic!!! However, this guy can efficiently deal massive amounts of damage, since you ARE playing 16-20 energy per deck.

That's it. Later, buds.
