Hey all,

Today's card is Rayquaza from Delta Species

Ahh, finally the Delta series :D. Now, I know it's sad, but I've been a fan of Rayquaza for a while now - I saw much potenial in his little evil eyes. However, this one is not going to fully make me a believer in his future. He's not really good. Yes, he's a basic. Yes, he can hit first turn. Yes, he has two awesome resistances. Yes, he has wonderful HP for a basic. The problem is mostly his attacks. Power Blow is going to be low damage almost all the time and Lightning Storm takes too much to make it work. It's Energy Removal bait - yes - but also, just doesn't seem to be effective enough. It'll take about three turns to get a Holon energy (the double one) and a Double Colorless on this guy so he can do 70 damage, but when you're facing a turn two raindance (sometimes turn one) or a turn two Sneasle or a turn two Scyther, you just don't make the cut for being quick enough, which is what this environment is all about.

Unlimited Rating 1.5/5


Rayquaza Delta

ImperialStingmon is back in the house with the first Delta species card review! Today we're taking a look at Pokemon #384 Rayquaza!

Poke-BODY: Delta Guard: As long as Rayquaza has any Holon Energy cards attached to it, ignore the effect of Rayquaza's Lightning Storm attack.

L: Power Blow: 10x: Does 10 damage times the amount of Energy attached to Rayquaza.

LMCC: Lightning Storm: 70: Put 7 damage counters on Rayquaza.

Stage: Basic

Hp: 90

Weakness: Colorless

Resistance: Water/Fighting


Type: Lightning/Metal

Delta species pokemon have different types then their regular counterparts and they also appear to be part Metal type too. Rayquaza's Delta form has combined Lightning and Metal type properties. It can use Metal Energy and it's resistant to water. Plus, since Rayquaza has always been able to fly it gains a second resistance this one to Fighting. The Poke-BODY Rayquaza possesses is an excellent one as Holon Energy will not only block the damage from Lightning Storm but they will help pay for it as well. Power Blow is an okay attack because it counts Energy instead of Energy cards. That means that with a Boost Energy card you get 30 extra damage. Lightning Storm is a great attack with a slight drawback but 4 for 70 is good and if you have a Holon Energy than that makes things even better.

Unlimited: 3/5: All the Energy removal in early sets can hurt Rayquaza.

Limited: 4.5/5: Not nearly as much removal but it still exists

Draft: 5/5: Excellent card to draft. Just plop it on your bench, build energy for Power Blow, and then send him up and knock'em down!
