Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day

Ditto - Fire Red and Leaf Green

Date Reviewed: 10.11.04

Ratings & Reviews below

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

Ditto is an interesting Pokemon.  His poke-power is always the one that stands out, not his attacks.  This one's poke-power acts like any basic you want, it can even be like a 5th basic.  For example get that Treecko back that just died, so it's like you have 5 Treeckos in your deck.  This can be useful in decks like Blaziken that use multiple evolutions on their basics(Blaziken ex and Blaziken RS).  You should NEVER use it's attack(unless you're playing limited).
Unlimited - No there are better cards to recycle pokemon here such as Town Volunteers, Nightly Garbage Run etc. 1/5
Modified - Here it's pretty good.  Get that 5th Treecko from your discard pile so that you can evolve into Sceptile again.  Watch out for Mt Moon though. 3/5
Limited - Pretty good here.  It's attack is awful though.  Get back your cubone that just died so you can evolve it into Marowak or something. 3/5

This is an interesting Ditto but it doesn't give you too much more than a little flexibility. You won't surprise your opponent since you have to switch it with a Basic from your discard pile, but it does allow you to bring back that crucial Basic that you need or protect a weak Basic by bringing out the Ditto first, waiting a turn, then switching to the weak Basic and evolving right away!

Unlimited: I could see this being useful in an "insane"-type deck which dumps a lot of cards into the discard and runs light on Pokemon. 2/5

Modified: Useful in a deck that requires multiple lines, get that basic back that you need. 2.5/5

Limited: Not bad here, but not that great. It is a 60 HP Basic that can do up to 30 damage, then you can switch it out to something else to take advantage of W&R. 3/5

Ditto – Nice little card to recur a basic that you lost to the discard pile. Did you need another Dunsparce to Strike and Run? Or maybe you are using a tech card and you tossed it for TV Reporter thinking you wouldn’t need it. Well Ditto can get it back for you. Of course the Fighting Weakness doesn’t help it to survive very long against certain decks and watch out for Mt. Moon stadium card which would shut down Ditto.

Unlimited :1/5 – Don’t even try using this here all you need to do is go 2nd and start with this Ditto and your opponent has Tyrogue = GG.

Modified – 4/5: 4 for certain decks but it is really good here. With little to no recursion in this format, Ditto can bring back that basic you desperately needed to Rare Candy into an evolved EX Beast to win the game.

Limited: 3/5 – Not too bad here. On par attack and if you needed to use the power to get back that lone rare non EX-basic that you drafted but was KO’d earlier Ditto can do that for you. Hang ten dude ;-) 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.
