Dusclops ex

EX Emerald


Date Reviewed: 08.10.06

Ratings & Reviews Summary
Unlimited: 2
Modified: 3.2
Limited: 4.3

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  5 is the highest rating.

My reviews are ratings are for Modified only.

Dusclops ex

Modified 3/5 - This is one of the few stage 1 ex's with lots of potential. Again, you can take advantage of Boost Energy. But you need energy acceleration, such as Meganium ex, to maximize its potential. I just think it's not anywhere close to being game-breaking or dominating the format.

Computer Guy Today's COTD Review is Dusclops ex from Emerald.

Dusclops ex is one of my favorite ex's from Emerald and the most fun. The HP is great, Resistance to 2 types is superb, and the Poke-Power is awesome. The attack can take people by suprise when you have 1 Psychic energy and then attach a Boost Energy for 8 damage counters. hehehehehe


Unlimited: 2/5
Modified: 3.9/5
Limited: 4.5/5
DarkJake Dusclops ex

Probably the biggest problem with this guy is that he's an ex. If he wasn't an ex, think of all the crazy things you could put in here, like Scramble and DRE for instance. His only attack says it puts 2 damage counters for every energy attached on him, needing [P] to initiate the attack. Now, since this is damage counters, it cannot be prevented by Metal Energy on an opponent's Pokémon, nor can it be reduced by your own DRE, sadly that's just a dream…since this guy is an ex Pokémon, it cannot utilize DRE nor Scramble, which would make him REALLY good. You can play him with Metagross (DX), and have two of them out, getting 10 counters from nowhere, but this is very risky, because you waste your attachment on the boost energy, and 100 damage isn't difficult to do back to knock this Pokémon out, either way, there are much better choices out there, such as Deoxys ex (atk form), whom only needs 3 energy to do worthwhile damage, and has a potential to do much more for a smaller cost. The body is somewhat nice; have a Dusc out and one on bench, and you have no weakness.

Unlimited: …Yeah right. 1/5

Modified: If it wasn't an ex…or had more HP, might be someone worthwhile, but the ability to do 100 damage isn't that hard, while
getting 5 energies on this guy…kinda is 2.5/5

Limited: There are no dark Pokémon in this set! With this guy out, you pretty much mean the game! 4.9/5
