Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day

Sorry, we don't
have this card.

Great Ball

Date Reviewed: 9.02.04

Ratings & Reviews below

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

Jermy101 Great Ball is a replacement for Dual Ball in most modified decks.  Getting any basic from your deck is a good deck thinner too.

Unlimited - I would rather use Pokemon Fan Club.  Plus fan club can get ex pokemon. 1/5

Modified - Most decks will still need dunsparce, but a few can get by with great balls. 3/5

Limited - Yes take it, you need all the search you can get in this format. 4/5

Johnny Blaze Great Ball – Great Balls of Fire. Sorry I had to do that. Once the Wotc get rotated out will this trainer fill slots into decks? I think so here is why. Search your deck for a basic, excluding EX’s, and put it on your bench. Sure Dunsparce can get 3. But with Great Ball being a non-supporter you can possible play 4 and get away with it. Tech in only 1 Basic? Then Great Ball it out your deck. Actually there is really no drawback in using Great Ball other than it takes up room on your roster for cards.

Unlimited: 3/5 – I actually like this card in Unlimited. With the 1st turn Rare Candy ruling just Great Ball out a Slowpoke and viola Slowking 1st turn. You get the picture.

Modified: 4/5 – Any basic (non-EX) out on 1st turn that you need (assuming you are holding a GB) is just awesome. No more losing by not having enough Basics. GB is great also in a swarm deck.

Limited: 5/5 – GB is best used in this format. Get any basic out. Usually the rarity of the Nintendo packs I have been with like 2 Venomoths and only 1 Venonant. What is up with that? Anyway just Great Bal out the basic that you are holding the evo. 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.
