Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day


Xatu δ

EX Dragon Frontiers


Date Reviewed: 12.20.06

Ratings & Reviews Summary
Unlimited: 1.25
Modified: 3
Limited: 1

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

2006 World
Xatu D works best in numbers & the Holon Engine. Using Holon's Castform
with Holon's Mentor will allow you to Delta Draw for multiple cards, getting multiple Xatu D out. With multiple Xatu in play, you can turn various
Stage2 ex cards into beats. Cards like Flygon ex (DF) and Dragonite ex d
(DF) are two of the many Stage2 ex's that can benefit from Xatu d.
Modified: 3

There aren't many Stage2 ex's you can play in unlimited, and Xatu is
vulnerable to Murkrow's Mean Look.
Unlimited: 1.5/5

The fact that its attack requires a dark makes it extremely weak. It's
Poke-Body is almost entirely useless. Even if you did pull a Stage2 ex, the basic, and the stage1, and the Natu, getting all out at the same time isn't
Limited: 1/5

Xatu d

Xatu d is quite weak on its own, but can be useful when combined with a strong stage 2 ex. I suggest using it with Dragonite ex d so your Deafens can start doing 60-70 damage, 2HKOing most Pokemon as opposed to the standard 3hko with Deafen doing 40.

Unlimited: 1/5

Stage 2 exs can't survive here, so it has nothing to support.

Modified: 3/5

Definately a good play in any deck that revolves around stage 2 exs. The basic Natu is also good for knocking out Shuppets turn 1 :-D.

Limited: 1/5

No stage 2 exs + no Dark Energy to attack = bad limited card.

My reviews and ratings are for Modified only.

Xatu delta

Modified 3/5 - I really like this card for certain decks running Stage 2 Pokemon-ex's. Most notable ones are Gardevoir ex d and Kingdra d. Because it is important for those decks to get to the 90 and 100 damage per hit threshold. Notice there is a lot of Pokemon with a maximum HP of 100 - such as Ludicolo or Metagross d, or Dragonite d. 2-2 or 3-3 lines of Xatu d can change the game in your favor.
