Dark T-Tar #19 aka Spinning Tail or Grind T-Tar. Cool looking artwork with the Lightning Bolts in the background.
This version of T-Tar is mostly combod with Dark T-Tar #20 that we will review later this week. Dark T-Tar #19 has 3 attacks and is the pure Dark type meaning that it is weak to Fighting and resists Psychic types.

Unlimited: 1/5 Will definitely be ERd to death in this format and Tyrogue bait to death.

Modified: 4/5 Very nice here. With combination of some ATM Rocks, its counterpart in Dark T-Tar #20, Desert Ruins, and why give you the deck away? This T-Tar is definitely one of the best that has been printed and played. Even though its not used as much for its 3rd attack, Bite Off, when Boost energy gets reprinted watch this card make a nice counter to Gardy-ex.

Limited: 2/5 Not much use here as there are no Darkness energy with the exception of Dark Metal and that still wont be enough to make a deck based on Dark T-Tar #19.
Drift None Dark Tyranitar - TRR - 19/109


Type: Dark


Resitance: Phychic

Retreat: 2 Colorless


Grind: 10+

Cost: 1 Colorless

Does 10 damage plus 10 more damage for each Energy attached to Dark Tyranitar

Pointless...this attack is only for the most desperate, or if you want to mock your opponet.


Spinning Tail
Cost:1 Dark, 2 Colorless

This attack does 20 damage to each of your opponet's Pokemon ( Don't apply weakness or resistance for benched pokemon)

Bench damage is always a good thing when its not hitting you, only issue with this attack is there is no base damage to your opponets active. Sure, he gets hit with 20 as well but thats not much. Could finish off the active and hit somethign on the bench so I wont ttoally down this attack


Bite off 70 +

Cost: 2 Darkness, 3 Colorless

If the defending Pokemon is a Pokemon-ex, this attack does 70 + 50

Wow, Thats a monster right there. With all the EX running around, its nice. High cost, and rare energy is required if you go stright with it, and if the Defender isnt an EX your paying 5 energy for a 70 damage hit, not worth it. I've been watching people test out things with this Tryanitar and while i've seen clever things I wouldnt say there is a solid deck here at the moment


Unlimited: Nope, too much cost involved. You would never get this thing set up to use right, ER and SER would tear this apart, the card over all is way too slow for the haste like decks I see played in unlimited.

Rating: 1/5

Mod: The resistance to phychic makes the card sligtly more appeling, but right now I dont see a solid enough deck here. Bite off would be a nice Attack perhaps followed by Spinning tail but I really wouldnt advise useing it.

Rating 2/5

Draft: High HP and a bench hitter, Tha dosent save it, the requirement of Dark energy makes it totally useless. Grind becomes useful but you may be the one getting left with this card actually incase your already taking the line for the other Dark Tryanitar.

Rating. 1/5

Dark Tyranitar

I've long been a fan of the G rated Godzilla. I can't help but laugh at this little guy; he strikes me as trying so hard to be ferocious and is always falling just short.

Hit Points: 120
Again, this is the best you're gonna get out of a stage 2 dark pokemon

Grind: C 10+
A little something, at least it powers up with Tyranitar

Spinning Tail: CCD
I LOVE bench damage. 20 damage to all your opponents pokemon every turn.
unchecked that can clear their entire side in 2-4 turns.

Bite Off: CCCDD 70+
It's a bit costly for my tastes but the extra damage from the D energy makes it a little better. You don't see that many EXs running around, but the extra 50 in the event that someone plays one is a bonus.

Retreat: 2
Can't beat that for such a beefy little guy.

Unlimited: 3
You could most definitely have some fun mixing this guy up with fossil Gengars.
Modified: 3
Limited: 2 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.
