Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day


Omastar - Ex Sandstorm

Date Reviewed: 5.27.04

Ratings & Reviews below

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

Ausen  Omastar's a cool pokemon. Nice HP, cool attacks. Most decks KO your pokemon by doing more damage then they have HP. Omastar decks do damage, then REDUCE your opponents HP to get KOs.

He works well alone and with something like Steelix, to pile on damage to a bunch of your opponent's pokemon and then Pull Down for a few KOs.

Unlimited 1/5
Modified 3.8/5 I really like him here, but you need a solid bench hitter to work with him Limited 3.5/5 Great card, nice attacks, but again you gotta get all the stages x.x
Thundachu Omastar

Overview: Ooook, I don't understand why Hedge picked 2 cards we have already done before, but whatever ;x. 110HP is the highest Omastar we have seen yet. Weakness to Lightning is normal for the water pokemon. For one colorless energy, Pull Cannon is like Mew's De-Evolution beam except now you can use it on ALL evolutions your opponent has which is OHHH. For 2 colorless energy, Hydrocannon does 30 damage plus 20 more for every water energy attached to Omastar. A few draw backs here. First off, the energy cant be used to pay for the attack. Bummer. And second, you can't add more than 40 in that way. Meaning only 2 will work. Retreat of 2 is good for an 110HP pokemon. Could be worse. All in all, Omastar from SS is much better then the fossil one.

Unlimited: 2/5
Modified: 3.5/5
Draft: Being a stage 2, it will be hard to draft espeacilly when the basic is Mysterious Fossil. Anyways, if you do draft it, I think you SHOULD use it for the Hydro Canon. 2 energy for 30-70 damage is pwnage. 4/5

I am really starting to like the trend of traditionally crappy cards starting to turn good. Omastar is just one of the resent trends. Now I don't like when they keep putting out sub par versions of previous cards. Now that has got to stop. Anyway...

Unlimited- I don't really even need to read the cards that come out of most sets nowadays. The vast majority of them suck in Unlimited, is this card any different? Not really. I guess you could run one in Blastoise, but first, it's not that good anymore, and two, there are better choices. If evo was played more often I might like this, in fact, I would. Alas, evo is not played that often in Unlimited so it can't be that great. Oh yeah, and it evolves from a trainer 1.75/5 here.

Modified- What can I say, do tons of damage at the start of the game, drop one of these and then go to town with Pull Down. Hydrocannon is pretty nice too. 3.25/5

Limited- Everything that you would think in Modified, but better. I like the splash attacks, and board control is always nice. 3.75/5 here. 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.
