Unlimited - Will just get ERed and SERed, and no delta
Pokemon worth using its poke-body for. 1/5
Modified - The best thing about its poke-body is that it's
cumulative. That means if you have 4 Gyarados in play and a
Holon Stadium, all your Delta Pokemon do 40 more damage when
they attack. This can be cool, but it could be tough to fit
a 4/4 Gyarados line in your deck just to do more damage. 3/5
Limited - Mostly all Pokemon in this set are delta, so its
poke-body will come in handy more often than not. But since
its attacks cost M energy, you'll need to get lucky to draw
into them. So you could leave some other Delta Pokemon
are ratings are for Modified only.
Unlimited: 1/5 - Pretty worthless here. Too many broken cards
like Sneasel and Slowking.
Modified: 2/5 - I think it's below average. 5 Energies for 80?
No way. Even with Boost, it's still not that attractive. Shiftry
(Hidden Legends), Copycat/Rocket's Admin/Boost = 1 Energy for
80. Hyper Beam is nice, but flipping coins and only 20 damage? I
take Gyarados ex over this guy. The Poke-Body is nice, and I
don't know how much impact of the extra 10 damage will have yet.
Remember the magic number is usually 150 HP for a stage 2 ex
Pokemon, 120 HP for a Stage 2 non-ex Pokemon. But I don't think
there are enough delta Pokemon out there that can make a huge
difference with the extra 10 damage. Metagross delta can make a
difference, but then you can just charge up or discard 1 extra
Energy for a one-hit KO. It's really not a good use of your deck
space, in my opinion.
Limited: 4/5 - Here the situation is very different. Stage 1
that can deal 80 damage, even at the cost of 5 Energy cards
(because you don't have Boost) may worth it. Hyper Beam should
slow your opponent down enough to to help you win.
