Today's card is Hypno from Delta Species

This review was suppose to be over Dragonite, but we had already reviewed that card, so it's Hypno's turn to go around. Mediocre is a good word to describe this card. 70 HP for a stage 1 final evolution, 1 retreat cost, low costing decent attacks and a Poke body that could be okay. Nothing special here. The basis of a deck with this in it would be to get the Poke asleep and prevent them from being able to add any energy to their active Poke. Not a bad concept, it just doesn't work. First, the sleep attack on Hypno doesn't deal out any damage, and you'll only keep the Poke asleep half the time (on your opponent's turn) and only a quarter of the time by the time your turn rolls around - so you're basically giving him a free shot if he flips a heads inbetween turns. Not only that, but the sleep condition is very easily bypassed in this format (Switch, Double Gust, Scoop Up, Mr. Brinney's Compassion, etc.). So the center of this deck in unlimited doesn't work very well. However, if you are going to run this in a deck, I would recommend some of the Sleep! trainers from Rocket and perhaps some other Poke that delivers the sleep affect and a lots of good luck. However, I wouldn't recommend this card in unlimited for sure.

Unlimited Rating 1.25/5

It's psychic, which means a lot of pokemon have restistance to hypno.
40 damage for 2 energy is very good though. and it's body + the first attack could make an interesting lock. however, in unlimited it's too easy to get out of this lock, so don't use it here ;)

Again, interesting lock here, the body works also from your bench, so I guess it could be used as a stalling card to build up your bigger pokemon, while locking your opponent's active pokemon. interesting already, but what if your opponent has more than 1 pokemon? nope, it only locks the active pokemon so your opponent could build his bench as well, 2 energy for 40 is a nice trade though, just not effective enough.

less ways to get rid of status conditions, which means hypno can lock a little easier.
2 for 40 damage is near awesome, and being psychic is a big advantage here. just a bit sad that it's not a delta pokemon.


Hypno (delta species)

Unlimited: Well uhm... it's power is fun with Dark Gengar together :D. But on his own just NO.

And its attacks just won't cut it either. Nothing more to say here if you want to play a Hypno in unlimited use the Aquapolis version.

Rating : 1/5

Modified: Well 70 won't make it here an 40 is to weak so.... you fill it in yourself.

Rating: 1/5

Limited: Actually useful here not specific as main attacker but ads a nice backup.

With 70 it can at least live two turns. And its attack can sleep-lock basics to kill with Psyshot.
