Hey all,

Today's card is Slowking from EX Unseen Forces

Umm... this card just isn't going to be the new deck in town. His power is a little helpful, but we've got much better search here. His HP is way to low, and his weakness is going to make him a one hit kill potential by a Scyther with a Plus Power (without sword dancing). His attack stinks and he's the end of an evolution line. Just... no.

Unlimited Rating 1.25/5


Unlimited: although you can easily get 6 tools in your discard pile, slowking isn't good here. yes, it can search for tools, but tools aren't that important. it's attack takes to long to do 80 damage usually, and his hp is kinda low too. it's a psychic type which means sneasel and other darkness pokemon have restistance to it, that's not good. slowking's weakness doesn't hurt it much though. retreat cost is decent.

Modified: of course to combo with dark slowking, as it isn't a great back-up card. (unless you use too many tools in your deck). this card adds a lot of consistency to the Dark Slowking deck, you can use the poke-power to guarantee 50 damage for dark slowking's attack, and when dark slowking gets knocked out, slowking does up to 60 damage easily, since you discarded some tools for dark slowkings attack. I can't think of any other decks where slowking would fit as a back-up card.

Limited: I think it's ok here, as long as you draft both tools and a slowking line.
I think that is probably a hard one to pull off with only 6 packs, so let's assume a slowking deck contains 2-1 slowking and 2 tools, you can use slowkings power twice, both to thin your deck and to power up any of your pokemon. slowking can then also attack for 40 late-game, pretty good, for only 2 energy, if you get more tools than 2, this is definetly a great pull. (if not, it might be better not to use the king at all)

Slowking (Unseen Forces #14)

Type: Psychic
Not too bad, I'm a fan of Psychic, and it's fairly useful.

HP: 70
The usual.

Stage of Evolution: Stage 1
Evolves from Slowpoke.

PokeBody/PokePower: Poke-Power:
Item Search
"Once during your turn (Before you attack), you may search your deck for a Pokemon Tool card, show it to your opponent, and put it into your hand. Shuffle your deck afterward. This power can't be used if Slowking is affected by a Special Condition.


[P][any] Aftermath {20+}
Does 20 damage plus 10 more damage for each Pokemon Tool card in your discard pile. You can't add more than 60 damage this way.

Weakness: Grass
The only major threat I know is from UF's Meganium.

Resistance: (none)
Waht? Again?

Retreat Cost: 1
A nice low cost.

Rarity: Holo Rare
Worth it if you like using lots of Tools.

The Positive:
You can search out those Ancient Technical Machine {Rock}s, Berrys and Protective Orbs. Possible max 80 damage.

The Negative:
You have to sack 6 Tools to get that max 80 damage, and it's his only attack.

Can work well here, if you use lots of Tools. Just park him on the Bench and search out those useful Tools. Otherwise, look elsewhere.

Less useful here, unless you use Protective Orbs and Berrys.

Getting enough Tools to make him work is too much of a longshot.
Look elsewhere.
TR Brian Hey i know i've been gone for a while but i'm back.

Well today we have for you the unseen forces version of slowking. Now this version of slowking is pretty fun to use with the dark sloking deck because of the simple fact that

it evolves from the same
basic and it helps the attack of the dark form. I have to say if u set up then it's pretty much game.
Also to add on to that and this sloking has to get rough it can for the simple fact that the attack hits harder after the dark one discarded some tools to the dicard pile.

Unlimited: It can work well here theres lots of support from the oldies but goodies 4/5.

Modified:Here like I said it'll work best with the dark counterpart in dark sloking deck 5/5 very good here regular modified 3/5

Limited:Here its so good since u probably will pull poke tools since in this

set theres sooo many
so here i give it a 4/5

Overall: 4/5 very good versatile card try it out u might find sumthing i didn't ^_^

Psylight Hao For today we have Slowking from UFO a card with a lot of potential, in particular in decks like Turbo Dark Slowking or Voodoo. Before EX Unseen Forces came out, you had to rely on lucky draws or some other search methods to get the Tools needed to increase Dark Slowking’s attack. Dark Slowking was a good card to use before, but it’s even better now thanks to the quick aid of the new Slowking. If Dark Slowking runs into trouble, you can still use Slowking’s Aftermath attack as a last resort. You can also do up to 80 damage if you have 6 Tool cards in your discard pile. This is easily achieved if you use Dark Slowking’s Litter attack to get some Tools into your discard pile to boost Slowking’s attack. I am amazed by how much they can both help each other out! Ok the general info of this card is 70HP to low for a stage1 but still he can recieve 2hit if active before he goes, Poke-Power Item Search: Once during your turn (before your attack), you may search your deck for a Pokémon Tool card, show it to your opponent, and put it into your hand. Shuffle your deck afterward. This power can't be used if Slowking is affected by a Special Condition. The used of this power is huge you get a specific tool from your deck and you thin it making easy to draw the card you need, the attack (PC) Aftermath (20+) Does 20 damage plus 10 more damage for each Pokémon Tool card in your discard pile. You can't add more than 60 damage in this way. Can do up to 80 damage is your discard pile has 6 tools there. Weakeness; Grass is better than psychic but still a problem for his low HP resistence None Retreat of one is cheap has well has its attacks pay it if you really need it

UnLimited: May work here but not a lot since there is a better Slowking in the town, his power may work to look for the gold berry or Focus Band, 2/5

Modified: Has his way in turbo Dark Slowking has a major drawing the only drawback is you will only have 3cunnings per turn, has well you can add Surprise time machine in case things turn odd and a Togetic or something annoying arrives 4/5

Limited: There are a lot of Poketool in the format, draw them when you want is a big help and also helps thiner your deck 4/5


One real review of EX Unseen Forces Slowking.


P.S. Until I can pay that debt, here’s some quick advice.

Drop one of the four NG Slowking you already run (#4 was only worth 6.25% of extra denial probability) and add this in if you use Slowking in Unlimited. Why? Focus Band on demand. See, it even rhymes! You tend to live and die by the coin in this format, plus this means draw power will naturally hit other, more useful cards. Even if you’re just running four Focus Band, it’s a decent option. Oh, and let’s face it, the fourth NG Slowking was practically filler anyway.

As for Modified, dynamic duo with its sinister sibling, Dark Slowking. EX Unseen Forces Slowking gets the Tools to hand, Dark Slowking chucks them for big damage, then this plays cleaner, especially if an annoying EX Team Rocket Returns Togetic or Battle Frontier starts causing you problems.
