Gyarados

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 attacking. 4/5

Gyarados d

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.

My name is Gyarados
I might look frightening
I’m a Dual-Type Pokemon
But I’m also weak to lightning

Unlimited: Nope to slow ER and SER will slap it to death.

Rating : 1/5

Modified: Nothing special to power up besides it’s only 10. And needs to much energy.

Rating : 1/5

Limited: Even her it’s a lame card needs to much energy and 10 isn’t that great.

Rating : 1/5
