X-Act Mewtwo Delta

A transcript from the powers-that-be that invent the cards for the Pokemon TCG now follows:

“We’ve got a problem, guys. The kiddos who love Metal Pokemon are crying out loud that we have printed too few of them.”

“So what can we do? With Darkness Pokemon, we invented Team Rocket Returns, and voila! The Darkness-loving kiddos are now happy! But what can we do with Metal???”

“Also, didn’t you notice how few Fire and Lightning Pokemon we have issued, compared to Water, Grass, Psychic and Fighting Pokemon? We keep issuing Pikachus and a Pokemon from the Charizard line in every set to make up for it, but it’s not enough. How about addressing that problem too?”

“Ooooohhh, I’ve got an idea!!! We’ll just haphazardly change the types of a few Pokemon to Fire or Lightning, and tag the Metal second type to most of them, so that we address BOTH problems at the same time! Then we invent a story that a guy was experimenting with Pokemon, resulting in their metallic aura! We can name them Delta Pokemon, because… umm… because it sounds cool!”

“Ooooh, yes it does! Imagine, Tyranitar Delta being a Fire/Metal Pokemon? Or Dragonite Delta being a Lightning/Metal Pokemon? WOWOWOW!!! …”

And so, the set EX Delta Species was born. :\

One such, umm, anomaly is Mewtwo Delta. A Fire/Metal Basic Pokemon (rofl) having 70HP and a single retreat cost, it does have, at least, a semi-interesting Poke-Power. Whenever you bench this card, you may move Basic Energies around your Pokemon, excluding Mewtwo itself. Then it has a horribly-overcosted attack. For a Fire and a Metal (of course), it does damage equal to the amount of Energy attached to Mewtwo Delta and the Defending Pokemon. Now, if that Poke-Power actually moved Energies onto Mewtwo Delta, the card might have proved semi-decent, but, as it stands, it’s not too useful at best, although Holon Research Tower could help a bit. To confound matters, they gave Mewtwo weakness to Psychic, which is the weakness it would have had if it had stayed a Psychic Pokemon. Have fun understanding the Pokemon TCG game, newbie-kiddos.

Unlimited: Do you see the card Energy Flow used that often in Unlimited? No. Since Mewtwo Delta’s Poke-Power is basically a carbon-copy of it, you wouldn’t expect it to be used, would you? 1/5

Modified: In Modified, it’s interesting at best, but unfortunately, interest alone doesn’t win you games. 1.5/5

Draft: Here it depends on whether you drafted Metal Energy and/or Holon’s Magneton/Electrode and/or Holon Research Tower or not. If you hadn’t, you can only use Mewtwo for the Poke-Power, which is still not bad in Draft, since you can save an Energy or two from that soon-to-be-dead Pokemon. If you have, then Mewtwo is quite solid here. Pray that you do, then. 2/5
