Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day


Sharpedo EX - Deoxys


Date Reviewed: 04.07.05

Ratings & Reviews Summary
Unlimited: 2
Modified: 2.85
Limited: 2.15

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

Thundachu Sharpedo EX

Overview: Lets see what we got. For 2 colorless energy, Drag Off does 20 damage to the defending Pokemon, OR you can switch the defending with a benched, and do damage to the new defending Pokemon. Can be very useful, I suppose, but the drawback is your opponent decides the benched pokemon. Then for 2 darkness and 1 colorless, Darkness Blast does 60 damage solid, but if you discard a darkness energy, it will do 80, plus being able to discard any energy from the defending Pokemon. Very good for getting rid of darkness/metal/scrambles, however not really worth it unless going up against something with resistance, or high HP, because with the 2 darkness attached, it will do 100 as it is. Weakness to Grass isnt very good, but resistance to psychic gives it the edge over Gardevoir (assuming anyone plays that anymore -_-). 100HP is a little low IMO for an ex, but free retreat makes up for it. Pretty good card.

Unlimited: Would take to long to get powered up with the darkness energy. And 1 energy discarded wont do much in Unlimited either. 2/5

Modified: With scramble it could get powered up pretty fast, and nice damage done as well with Darkness Blast as well. Low HP could make it a predetor though, and being an ex, your opponent would get 2 prizes. 3.5/5

Draft: Being ex and evolution, may hard to get it played, and unless you can get scramble, it wouldnt be very helpful, since there are no darkness energy in the set. If you can, Id play it. High damage potential. 3.5/5

Johnny Blaze
Sharpedo-ex: Pure Darkness type with weakness to Grass and Resistance to Psychic with a free retreat cost. Sharpedo has for its 1st attack for 2C :Drag-Off which can switch one of the defending Pokemon with a benched Pokemon and do 20 damage to it. If you have 2 Darkness energy attached to Sharpedo-ex then Drag-Off can essentially do 40 damage.

You basically want to use Sharpedo-ex for its pwnge attack of Darkness Blast for 2 Dark and 1 C Darkness Blast is doing 60 (80 if there are 2 Darks attached) then you have the choice to discard a Dark energy off of Sharpedo-ex to do an extra 20 damage and to discard an energy off of the Defending Pokemon. So all in all it can dish out a solid 100 Damage.

Unlimited: 2/5 – Too energy intensive here. You might want to combo with Slowking – Mind Games to combat Energy Removals or use No Removal Gym. Nice free retreat and can damage the benched babies for ohko are positives for Sharpedo-ex in this format.

Modified: 2/5 – Risky here with various Grass decks running about to combat the Sand Damage T-Tar. Use the Ruby+Sapphire Carvahna if you plan on using Sharpedo-ex.

Limited: 1/5 – Unfortunately you will be using it for its 1st attack only since Darkness energies are non-existant in Deoxys draft.
]-[0t (V)uSt|d Hey guys, this is my first review here, hope you all like it... or not.

Sharpedo EX: This card is pretty cool, and it's a decent card if used right.

Unlimited: 2
I don't see this card doing much at all in unlimited

Modified: 3
The card is ok here, and works in drag/trode replacing sneasle. Dishes out a mean amount of damage too.

Constructed/Draft: 0
Ummm... can you say no dark energy in this set?
