Shedinja – This week we continue the reviews of the flying bugs. We have seen Shedinja in the past but never as a Psychic type. As a Ghost bug, Shedinja has an interesting Poke-Body called Empty Shell – When Shedinja is knocked out your opponent doesn’t draw a prize card. At 50 hp I like to think of Shedinja as a beefed up Stage 1 Fossil card.

Its bottom line is no weakness, no resistance, and no retreat cost. Its one and only attack Extra Curse lets you place 2 damage counters on the defending Pokemon and if its Pokemon-ex then you can place 4 damage counters on Pokemon-ex. This is nice as by placing damage counters it will allow you to bypass Metal Energies and other effects.

Unlimited: 2/5 – Not gamebreaking here. The take no prize in Empty Shell is nice and can lead to an interesting Stall deck with Fossils and some other combos but with the numerous abilities to de-evovle Pokemon, Nincada is very susceptible.

Modified: 2.5/5 – Again as a Stage 1, ATM Rock will be able to take a prize by de-evolving Shedinja to Nincada. Extra Curse is always helpful as a last ditch effort to get 2 prizes if your opponents’ Pokemon-ex has 40 HP remaining and with a cost of 1C it is very cheap and splashable in any deck.

Limited: 3.5/5 – Shedinja is really good here. With the ability to dish out 2 damage counters a turn, and with no drawbacks when Shedinja is knocked out, and the possibility to finish off a Pokemon-ex to draw your last 2 prizes.
