Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day


Corsola - Ruby Sapphire

Date Reviewed: 6.30.04

Ratings & Reviews below

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

Thundachu Corsola

Overview: A new corsola =o. Lets see how good this one is. For 1 colorless, Coral Glow lets you draw a number of cards equal to the amount of Basic Pokemon your opponent has in play. The drawback here is you cant draw more than 10 cards in that way. Then for 2 colorless energy, Surf does a pretty nice 40 damage. Weakness to Grass makes Vileplume ex, Heracross, and Bellossom(saw a lot of these played at prerelease) a problem. 70HP is wonderful for a basic Pokemon as well.

Unlimited: 2 for 40 just doesnt cut it here. 1.5/5

Modified: Could be good in killing the stages of Blaziken ex before it becomes the monster Blaziken ex ;/. And the draw is pretty good as well. 3/5

Draft: Good draw power, pretty nice damage for 2 colorless. I'd play it. 4/5
burninating torchic Name: Corsola
Set: Hidden Legends

Single Modified: 1/5 This card doesn't fit into any decks I know of, and is a waste of space. As my friend Jason knows, if it isn't (W)(C)(C) or (P)(C)(C) or whatever for 50, it isn't good enough. For example Surf should do 10 more damage, but it doesn't. Oh darn. And coral glow isn't very impressive draw power.

Team Modified: 1.75/5 Is there any reason it should be better in team? Yes! It gets a whopping .75 points added to it's score because you can draw more cards from it in Team!

Single Limited: 3.5/5 This is not a bad Draw Power card in sealed and draft. Since it, Luvdisc, and Steven's advice are the only draw power in Hidden Legends(right?), it is more valuable when that is the only set you can use. Almost everyone who gets it plays it.

Team Limited: 4.25/5 Once again, .75 added to the score because you can get more cards! yay!

Single Mutant Modified: 2.5/5 Erm...yeah. It's better in this because it can evolve into Milotic and stuff...yeah.

Team Mutant Modified: 3.25/5 I just love adding .75 for team, don't I.

Single Mutant Limited: 4/5 Draw power and a Milotic? YAY!

Team Mutant Limited: 4.75/5 I really don't think an explanation is needed.

Total Score: 3.125/5 An average card. This'd be soooo much lower if it weren't for the great limited Draw Power. And the Milotic thing. Come to think of it, you could rare candy this into a Swampert...or evolve into Marshtomp then Swampert mutant that is. Hmm.


I think this is much better!


This card reminds me of RC cola. ;/

Gotta make these upcoming cotd’s quick… Leaving for Australia tomorrow. :O

Corsola….. hmm…. It’s ok, but I like Luvdisc more.

Save it for the binder. Rain Castforma dn Luvdisc both beat it out in efficiency.
Unlimited: Not at all worth considering IMO... Cleffa is unlimited times better than this. 1/5
Modified: Not that much better as it's only decent like turn 2-3 of the game when they have used SAR or something... other than that it's useless for it's first attack and the second attack isn't really that special it's not gonna OHKO anything big in the fire department so I can't see this becoming good...
Draft: Here is this things better area.... as it will draw you some cards for a few turns and then can be a nice attacker with decent HP... basically take it in draft as any form of draw is very nice in draft. Rain castform pwns this in all ways but hey draw is draw in this format! 4/5
Corsola... Weak Steven's Advice?
Retreat 1, pretty normal, 70 HP on a basic is hefty. Grass weakness may be bad
because of all of the Muks and stuff running rampant. It might be a good
change from Electric weakness that many good Water Pokemon possess. Water Type
is nice vs. the dominant Fire decks.


Coral Glow. The only reason someone would even take a second look at Corsola.
Unfortunately, it would only be a passing glance. It can't get your hand
bigger than 10. It provides a Steven's Advice- like effect, except it only
works on basic Pokemon. It might get you 4 cards on the second turn of the
game most of the time, but this effect isn't even that great compared to
Strike and Run or Alluring Smile, where you know what you are going to get.

This attack is pretty average. WCC for 40 is decent for a Basic. Burninating
Torchic would call WCC for 50 "broken." Unfortunately, he isn't the most
brilliant and WCC for 40 is quite bad.

Unlimited: 1/5
It deserves the LOWEST ranking. Cleffa will prevent this pathetic card from
ever attacking, at with so many good starters out there, this is just an extra
prize for sneasel.
Modified: 2/5
This card might be like a poor man's Dunsparce, but it's not reliable. Even if
your opponent starts with a Dunsparce, they might not even want to search for
that many Pokemon until your Corsola slows you down.
Limited: 3.5/5
First attack is decent, second attack is quite a bit of damage. WCC for 50 and
it would be too awesome. Solid card, especially for the strongest Hidden
Legends type (Water), one of the best basics in the set.

Johnny Blaze Corsola – A sort of built in Steven’s Advice in a Pokemon. They must be basic Pokemon however. Draw power seems to be a mini-theme in Hidden Legends. How does Corsola add up?

Unlimited - Waaay too many options here for this card to be effective. OHKO against Scyther too. Not very good.

Modified – More so in little kids decks here. Can be used in this format however. 3 for 40 against the popular Blaze = 80. Other than that it doesn’t stand up too much else and with the low HP it’s a goner in one turn.

Limited – More use in this format. 3 for 40 is decent in draft and with the Vulpix ascension into any version of 9Tales not too bad here. Also there is a lot of Water that is popular and amny basics are played.
3.5/5 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.
