Computer Guy Today's COTD Review is Mawile from Holon Phantoms

Mawile is a Metal type basic pokemon with 60 HP, a weakness to fire, a resistance to grass and 1 retreat cost. This card is just so bad and pointless that it wouldn't even be used in any deck. If you pull this card in a pack you feel like I just wasted $3.25 for nothing.

Mawile Holon Phantoms

The card is horrible, In Modified & Unlimited it isnt worth it. A basic pokemon with only 60 HP that can do a max of 20?? There are better choices. In limited it still is Bad, but still better than a few cards. I wouldn't play it tho.

Unlimited - 1.0

Modified - 1.2 (Only Cuz It Is Worse In Unlimited)

Limited - 1.9

Today's Card Of The Day is...Mawile from Holon Phantoms. Well for a non-evolving basic, with no powers or bodies, it's attacks kinda suck. Not gonna waste too many words on this one. If you just have to play with it, Mew EX from Holon Phantoms would make Surprise, a decent attack. Modified 2/5...trust me, there is worse Limited 2/5...there are so many good non evolving basics, let someone else have this one. Current Ebay Value (plus or minus 50 cent)$1.50/non-holo $2.00 dollar RH ~Muk Man~

Hi, I'm new to CotD, but I hope my opinions are well taken...


Today's Pokemon is the Holon Phantom's Mawile. It's first attack is awful - there are many better alternatives. Raichu's (delta) Zzzap! attack is better, doing more damage, and hurting a great percentage of all decks (ignoring the fact that Mawile is faster, not being an evolution and all). However, this review is about Mawile, and Mawile I shall review...


So, first attack, not really worth it. However, the second attack is rather interesting. 20 damage is mediocre for two energies, and one of those is a Metal Energy, which of course, is limited to 4 a deck. Although, with various ways of getting around the limitation (Rainbow Energy, Holon Research Tower), it is quite a nifty attack. Being able to get rid of even one of your opponent's cards can disrupt their entire plan, hence why Rocket's Admin is so popular (despite the fact that would usually get more than one card).


Now, with no Poke-Power or Poke-Body to speak of (although, that would've probably been covered first), its onto Mawile's stats. 60 HP is mediocre. There are better Basic Pokemon cards, HP-wise, like Chansey (90 HP), or for something with more power, Torkoal (80 HP). But, it does have a nice resistance to Grass, which is uncommon for Basic Pokemon. While its weakness to Fire is pretty standard. With a retreat cost of 1, where does that leave Mawile?


There are certainly better cards, the previously mentioned Torkoal has more survivability than Mawile, while things like Mightyena have far more prowess for destruction (Mightyena perhaps being a big help in Mewtric decks, right next to Manetric ex). So, Mawile should stay as a non-competetive card, really. While it's second attack is nice, there's just a feeling of lackluster-ness about it in general.


Hope you all enjoyed my review, and I will hopefully be back again to give my ramblings on CotD!
