Johnny Blaze
Clefable EX

We’ll have to see how this card plays out. Being an EX with only 100 hp and weakness to Fighting is not good in modified. But Metronome is always a useful and annoying attack to deal with. Moon Impact 2 for 40 is nice for those times that Metronome wont do anything to the defending Poke.

Unlimited: 2/5 – I would stick with its Jungle counterpart Clefable. Jungle Clefable has the resistance to Psychic and is not an EX. Maybe Splash in a Celfable EX but as always the cute little Tyrogue will wreck havoc on this card.

Modified: 2.5/5 – Im giving it a 2.5 because like I said before we’ll have to wait and see how this card plays out. I can think of a few possibilities how this card could be a decent wrecking machine, but with Fighting becoming more popular with Monarchy and the ever looming Team Magma around Clefable could be in big trouble. Along with Desert Ruins Clefable does not like to have only 100 hp.

Limited: 4/5 – Im giving Clefable the best rating here because I have been housed twice by this little guy in FR/LG pre-releases that I have attended. I thought I had the game won twice only to see Clef-EX hit the board and toast my only threat that I had going.

Clefable Ex:
Unlimited: It's kind of the same thing as the jungle one... it might actually see some play. 2/5
Modified: It's fighting weak... not a good thing in the RSON format with Nidos running around... that's gonna hurt it a lot. 2/5
Limited: It's actually pretty good here if you think about it, it's got good HP the attacks aren't bad for their costs in this format... but the lower HP for the ex (kinda contradicting what I said I know) can also hurt because two prizes is MAJOR in a game with 4 prizes. I'd pick it but becareful with it. 3.5/5

Clefable ex

Finally we get a usable Clefable and a usable Metronome coming back into Modified. Of course, they have greatly reduced the power of the card by upping the cost of the attack and changing some of the wording.

Unlimited: You would never use this card in Unlimited. The original, Jungle Clefable, has the same attack at a lower cost and doesn't have to worry about energy discards like this card does. Also, Clefable ex costs you two prizes when KO'd. If Jungle Clefable didn't exist, this would be a good card. 2.0/5

Modified: I love Metronome and I've missed being able to play it for the past few years. The original Metronome was "broken" and Nintendo had to write a lot of cards' text with convoluted phrases and exceptions in order to limit it's power. They then put out some cards with versions of Metronome that were so watered down that they were unplayable. This version, finally, is playable without being over- strong. You get to copy the attack of the Defending Pokemon for two Colorless energy. So, for the most part, you can be faster than your opponent. The biggest concern is it's low HP (for and ex) and it's Fighting Weakness. These can be worked around, however. Give it a try.

Limited: You're only going to get one of these in a box, so you won't be able to build a strong evo chain. However, Clefairy is also a good pick because of it's Gust-like attack so it's worth grabbing in case you do get any Clefairy. 4.0/5
Clefable ex is...not as good as Jungle clefable.  2 Energy to use Metronome? ex Pokemon? only 100 HP?  Desert ruins bait? Bad bad bad.  He's just weak.
Unlimited - No way.  Use the Jungle Clefable (or base Gastly). 1/5
Modified - No.  He is as useful as Lapras ex. 1/5
Limited - Heeeeeeere it's good.  Copying attacks is good, 100 HP is good, it's all good. 4/5 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.
