Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day


Heracross δ

EX Dragon Frontiers


Date Reviewed: 11.17.06

Ratings & Reviews Summary
Unlimited: 3.5
Modified: 1.2
Limited: 3.5

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

2006 World

Without Swoop Teleporter, your only chance of having a lone Heracross is simply opening with it. The fact that Luna/Sol will probably no longer be popular, and the fact that it has mediocre attacks, makes the card overall weak.
Modified: 2/5

Shining Horn is useful in unlimited, but there are other basics that have the Poke-Body, (Skarmory) which are probably slightly better.
Unlimited: 3.5/5

Heracross d

Pretty mediocre basic from Dragon Frontiers. Shining Horn is always a useful Body. Opening with a lone Heracross against Castform decks can really slow them down. Dig Deep and Extra Claws aren’t very good, but they can get the job done I suppose.

Unlimted: 1/5
Stops Cleffa and Sneasel IF they don’t play Cessation Crystal, but since they probably do, Heracross isn’t going to be very useful.

Modified: 1/5
Same thing as Unlimited. Shining Horn is too easy to play around. Not very useful.

Limited: 3/5
Pretty good here. Sometimes your opponent wont be able to get any evolutions out in time, and will hang a lot of turns trying to deal with Heracross.

My reviews and ratings are for Modified only.

Heracross delta

Modified 1/5 - The metagame is simply dominated by Evolutions. Thus, this card is worthless. The attacks are really weak. Sorry.

Today’s Card Of The Day is…Heracross from Dragon Frontiers
Well as a starter he is not the best choice, but his power makes him limited gold!
30-50 damage for 2 energy is not bad, but in modified, there are better choices. Although Dig Deep can be useful to grab those discarded boosts, metal or darkness energies.

Combos: This guy flies solo; he does his best work when he is alone.

Modified: 1/5 Don’t see a use for him here, there are better options
Limited: 3/5 As a starter, great he will last a few rounds because this format is dominated by basics. But eventually you will have to play a bench.

Current ebay Value: $3.00 (Plus or minus $1 dollars)

P.S. Jeff Reynolds is the best T.O. EVER!
On My Way to Lusby MD, for The City Championships, See you there!

Espeon Heracross d:

Unlimited: 2/5
It can stop Sneasel? Loses to everything else.

Modified: 1/5
The power is too dangerous and the attacks are worthless. Evolve and ohko it for the win.

Limited: 4/5
A nice body in limited, because most of the time you'll be dealing with basics and you can see an evo coming and being set up from a mile away.
Recycling energy is quite good and 2 for 30 is pretty basic for this format.
A nice bit of bonus damage against ex's and it's actually pretty good here.
