Unlimited: It can OHKO a lot of
pokemon played here, but it most likely will get ER'd to
Excellent card here, 160 HP is
the highest HP in the current modified, and grass weakness
is most fortunate, as grass isn't really great at the
moment. with Spiral drain you're able to heal yourself while
doing a decent amount of damage for only 2 energy. I find
Vortex Chop a pretty undercosted attack, doing either 70 or
100 damage to the defending pokemon for only 3 energy. just
wow. a lot of pokemon have restistance too, so you'll be
able to do 100 damage at least once a tournament.
The body is amazing and makes
it a total counter card to decks like rock lock and queendom.
The fact that it evolves from
the fossil is even better I guess, because Armaldo ex is
kind of slow (whereas nidoqueen or typhlosion can do their
best attacks on turn 2, armaldo ex has to wait another
turn), so you can use your fossils to slow the game down a
Also, the anorith from this set
has the influence attack, which means armaldo ex can swarm
pretty easily. but use at least 1 strange cave just in case.
if you get it, use it, for
sure, if you get it in play fast enough, you should be
pretty much unstoppable, because when your opponent tries to
stall, you just heal yourself. if he tries to fight back,
he'll most likely lose. strange cave + influence help it
alot here too.
