Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day



EX Delta Species


Date Reviewed: 12.12.05

Ratings & Reviews Summary
Unlimited: 2
Modified: 2.25
Limited: 3.75

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


Overview: I had to ask 3 people to find out who Hariyama evolves from ;\. I like the Pokemon Power, Reverse Aura. As long as you have more prizes then your opponent, damage done by Hariyama is increased by 20, and damaged recieved to, decreased by 20. Can come quite in handy depending on the situation. The first attack it has, Slap Push, does 30. Can't really comment on the energy cost for it, because the resource Im using, doesnt have it listed (thanks pokemon-tcg.com ;/). Second attack, Brick Smash, does 50 damage for 1 colorless, and 2 fire. What's good about that attack, is that it isnt affected by resistance, powers, bodies, or any other effects. Whats bad is, weakness doesnt count either ;x. Hariyama's weakness is Psychic, which shouldn't be a real problem. I dont see many psychic decks these days. No resistance, and retreat of 1 is not very bad either.

Unlimited: Really, I dont see any reason to play it here. Nothing really special. 2/5

Modified: same as Unlimited. Pretty average, and the second attack's energy cost is a little high IMO. 2/5

Draft: Id play Makuhita from DS because it is a nice opener in Draft, but the only reason Id play this is nice damage not affected by resistance, and the Pokemon Power comes in handy. 3.5/5

Today's card is Hariyama from Delta Species

Rocking around the Christmas tree...

Speaking of rocks, we've get a Stage one evolution rock Poke in here now. 80 HP is alright. His power is kinda like the attacks on the shining Pokes where you need to be losing or it really stinks, just not a drawback like them. So, he's better when you're behind. 50 for a double colorless energy is pretty good and 70 for two fightning and a colorless is decent. The power basically gives you a 40 point advantage (minus 20 on their attacks, and plus 20 on yours) which is really nice. Still, the evolution factor hurts this guy bunches. Quick basics will tear him apart. And the part time power isn't a positive. Good decks in unlimited are good because they don't rely on chance. This guy just isn't reliable enough to work out well. And fightning Pokes are just about dead in Unlimited world. Overall, he could rock around some people's Christmas tree, but not going to change the environment much - if any.

Dont forget the reason for the season: "She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins." Matt. 1:21

Unlimited Rating 2/5

it's an ok card, but there are way better cards in this format.
I really like his poke-body, but 50 damage isn't enough here.

it has a type advantage here, being fighting is good versus a lot of things now.
but it doesn't make much of an impact here, as 50 (or 70 when behind in prizes) still isn't good enough with all the big-hitters in this format.
rather stick with his ex-counterpart.

I think this card really shines here, there are almost no psychic pokemon in this set, and it's second attack damages even through metal energy.
also, when you're behind on prizes, this card does 70 damage for 3 energy, or 50 for only 2 energy, and your opponent has to do more than 20 damage to even hurt your hariyama. this card can turn the game around for you.
