Hey all,

Today's card is Vaporeon from Delta Species

Well, I guess it's the water Flareon's turn. Same basic stuff cept attack has removal effects instead of a burning effect. I think I'd have to go with the burn from Flareon. Energy removing is nice, but that's what trainers do here (and a lot). Burning allows for major damage and possibly a knockout between turns. This attack only sets them back maybe a turn because the energy goes back to their hand :-\. Still, not a great Poke.

Unlimited Rating 1.3/5

Vaporeon δ is has 70 HP. Usually, that’s the absolute minimum for any stage 1 Pokémon. That’s bad. It also doesn’t help that this low HP is accompanied by zero retreat cost or some totally amazing Poké-body/power. This card is playable. It’s just very limited in what it can be played with.

Combinations: Holon Energy WP comes to mind, because of Vaporeon δ’s “Delta Search.” Holon Energy WP prevents all effects done to the Pokémon, by your opponent’s Pokémon (excluding damage).

Another good combo would be to get a Double Rainbow Energy on Vaporeon δ by turn 2, in order to disrupt your opponent’s energy on turn 2, using “Return Wave.” I once built a deck based on this energy disruption principle, only I used Dark Golduck [RR] (whose second attack allows you to discard an energy attached to Dark Golduck and then discard an energy attached to the defending Pokémon). Don’t expect such a deck to win much on prizes (trust me), but it sure is fun stalling and winning by deck-out.

Unlimited: This doesn’t fit in any type of deck that I can think of. 1.2/5

Modified: Not on the whole, a playable card. You can’t just put it in any deck. Perhaps you could build a stall deck with Holon Energy WP, Double Rainbow Energy, and Metal Energy (Vaporeon δ is metal). If you can find a use for this card, great. If you can’t, I’m not surprised. 2/5

Limited: Metal Energy is in this set. All the Holon Energy cards are here. Good. Weakness to Lighting hurts here, a lot. Not many Pokémon weak to water here. Bad. Even without Double Rainbow Energy, you could still disrupt energy on turn 2 with Vaporeon δ’s second attack. Good. 3/5

Dallas Dalton Vaporeon

This card falls pretty much in line with Flareon, I have never really seen this card put to good use here as well. I pretty much feel Vaporeon and Flareon are just copy and paste cards, and neither look very good.

Delta search is okay for what will be a scarce but in demand resource, but there's really no way to take advantage of holon energies with vaporeon.

Return wave to me is EXACTLY the same as flareon's return brun, because they are both somewhat promising but ultimately ineffective.

Unlimited - 1.5 - Your opponent won't take you seriously if you play this in unlimited and for good reason too.

Modified- 1.5- worse than flareon here because the ability with return wave is inferior compared to the burn effect of flareon's return burn.

Limited- 2.0 - Special energy requirements will basically ruin any chances of this card being used here.

Vaporeon [delta species]

Unlimited:
nope, it sucks here, it doesn't do much damage, and metal energy get removed before they take effect. it's first attack does 10 damage...
wow. that sucks pretty bad, it's weakness is just terrible, so is it's HP.
1/5

Modified:
use Eevee from UF if you are going to play this eeveelution card, you can get a pretty big advantage of getting an evolution on your first turn, and already 2 energy cards attached to it, including one being a holon energy, with nice effects and such, very cheap combo, as you only need a basic pokemon and a basic energy card for it.
it stats are rather disappointing though, 50 damage is not enough, but it's effect can be nasty, it's weakness is terrible, and it has not much HP.
3/5

Limited: not really good here, as it's weakness is most ..
unfortunate, most of this set is lightning type. also, you need a metal energy to use it's second attack, which are rare and you might not get a metal at all. if you can use the attack somehow (holon tower or holon pokemon) you might want to play it, it's a decent card as long as you don't face lightning pokemon.
1.5/5
