Armaldo ex

EX Legend Maker


Date Reviewed: 03.10.06

Ratings & Reviews Summary
Unlimited: 1
Modified: 3.5
Limited: 4

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

2005 World
Armaldo ex

Unlimited - It'll get ERed and SERed so don't use it. 1/5

Modified - Pretty good. Can heal himself and do 40 damage for only 2 energy. Vortex Chop is very good for the cost, usually doing 100 damage since many Pokemon have resistance. Use with Magnetic storm so you can OHKO those pesky Lugia ex. Dual Armor won't be needed much since not many are weak to grass, but it does help vs Dark Tyranitar (Sand Damage). 3/5

Limited - Very good if you can get it out, like all EXes are. 160 HP and removing 20 damage a turn makes it hard to kill. 4/5
scyther21 Okay Everyone I'm back on the cotd reviews from a long break okay back to buisness.

Okay If you have seen my previous reviews I keep them short and sweet.

Okay the card of the day is Armaldo.

Dual Armor there are hardly any problems with having two types of pokemon the only benifit is that you can get more easy kills of pokemon of the same type.

Spiral drain is kind of good you do 20 and heal 20 it's not that bad.

Vortex Chop will hit for an automatic 70 adn a resitance check to make it 100 so you can pokemon reversal up one of those pesky pidgeot and do 70 to it still.

Okay then Grading.

Unlimited : It's good but I wouldn't play it.

Draft : If you pull this in a draft and you have all the previous stages this card rocks.

Limited: No comment.

Unlimited 3
Draft 5
Limited 3

Till next time scyther21 out.
Kevin89 Armaldo ex

Unlimited: It can OHKO a lot of pokemon played here, but it most likely will get ER'd to death.



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 little.

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.



My name is Armaldo ex.

You better not resist.
Cause when I use Vortex Chop.

Your Pokemon better exist.


Unlimited: Nope to bad this guy will not live long here. Not that grass is a danger here

(well a little) but just because of Er and SER are around and being an ex is dangerous here anyway.


Rating : 1/5


Modified: Mean Killing Machine here I mean just look at Vortex Chop. Almost any Pokemon has resistance nowadays some even have two. I'm not saying it's broken but it's just such a playable card. Will become good with something just wait and see. ;-).


Rating : 3/5


Limited: Yup High HP good attacks solid Pokemon


Rating :  3.5/
