Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day


Memory Berry

Ratings & Reviews Summary
Unlimited: 1

Limited: 1

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

My reviews are ratings are for Modified only.

Memory Berry

Modified: 2/5 - Since you're trying to take advantage of pre-evolution attacks from stage 1 or Basic Pokemon, it is obvious or imperative that you use this on a stage 2 Pokemon. This tool doesn't have other Pokemon limitations, such as non-ex Pokemon.

In order to evaluate this card properly, let's look at some a sample stage 2 Pokemon, and see if this card works well with the particular Pokemon.

Let's take Aggron ex from Crystal Guardians, for example. Although you would Split Bomb occasionally, you definitely will be using Mega Burn as its primary attack. Its pre-evolution - Aron (Basic) from CG has Flail, which does 10x the number of damage counters on Aron. You can take advantage of this attack with Memory Berry both because you can't Mega Burn every turn, and Aggron ex's high HP.

Its high HP means it is much harder to One-Hit KO, and you can take advantage from the damage taken from your opponent's attacks.

Nevertheless, finding a good candidate for using Memory Berry is quite difficult. It's very rare to find a pre-evolution from a stage 2 Pokemon that can match the damage output (including disruption output) of the stage 2 itself. Usually Rage-like attacks are about the best option you have for Memory Berry.

Also, Aggron ex CG doesn't need a Memory Berry to be an effective attacker (not a must-have). A well-timed Split Bomb will also set up One-Hit KOs with Mega Burn.

Finally, if the stage 2 in question is a non-ex Pokemon, Meteor Falls from DX is a much better option than Memory Berry, because it is a Stadium that can both help you and hurt your opponent (i.e. getting rid of Battle Frontier) at the same time.

The Red Rose
Hello again pokemon tcg players

Today we look at a card that i am not really fond of for one reason there is a stadium card that lets you do the exact same thing

The stadium card is meteor falls and today we have the poketool version memory berry

Ulimited: easily put there are better tools out there 1/5

Modified: same as above if you wanna run something like this use meteor falls sure your opponent gets the effect too.....but for you it wont be a one shot deal 1/5

Limited: Just dont run it period 0/5

so as harsh as that was......the downfalls to this card and meteor falls are the same really you can windstorm both......

anyways if ya wanna get in tough then e-mail me at zoran_217@hotmail.com

The Red Rose

I tried to go on like I never knew you
I'm awake but my world is half asleep
I pray for this heart to be unbroken
but without you all I'm going to be is

The Red Rose....Entering The Battlefield

~Espeon Memory Berry

Hey, I'm new to the CotD! Some of you may know me as higumaotoshi from Pokegym, Pokebeach or Pojo forums, but most likely, you've never heard of me

=) I'll be doing CotD's from now on, unless I get "fired" for sucking too badly at this =O

Memory Berry:
Attach Memory Berry to 1 of your Pokémon that doesn't already have a Pokémon

Tool attached to it. If that Pokémon is Knocked Out, discard this card.
The Pokémon this card is attached to can use any attack from its Basic Pokémon or its Stage 1 Evolution card. (You still have to pay for that attack's Energy cost.) If that Pokémon attacks, discard this card at the end

of the turn.

Memory Berry. Us old school players recall a card similar to it called "Recall" =P. Back then, everyone thought of using Recall for a 1 energy 90 damage attack from a Gyarados recalling a Magikarp's Flail. Sound fun?
Unfortunately, fun is about as far as it can go, and the new Pokemon tool version, Memory Berry, still holds the same problems as its original did.

Unlimited: 1/5
There are much better trainers to put into decks here. There are also cards that are more fun to use if you want to make a random casual deck, making it

completely useless here.

Modified: 1.5/5
There could be a little more use here such as hitting with 90-120 as a surprise with something like a Charizard δ, but it still wouldn't be wise to waste slots on something that won't come into play at all during most games.

Limited: 1.5/5
Most of the time, if you get your big evolution line out and charged, you're

going to attack with its own attacks. There's rarely ever a situation where you'll want to use an attack from a previous stage in Limited.
Computer Guy Memory Berry from Ex Crystal Guardians.

Memory Berry is an okay card, however if I want to use a pre-evolutions attack I think Meteor Falls would be a better choice.

Unlimited: 1/5

Limited: 3/5

Recall? This card enables a Pokémon to use an attack that its prior forms know. This card is next to useless because as we all know; as Pokémon evolve they get better attack. In other words, why would you want to use an attack from a prior stage when you have the one right now? The only use this card has is for attacks such as Rage or Retaliation, otherwise there are other, much better choices if you want an effect that only the basic/stage1 forms of a Pokémon produce.

Unlimited: Considering basics are big here…you get the idea. No thanks. 1/5

Modified: It only has one use, and even then it's still not that great. 1/5

Limited: I guess in this format you might want to use a prior attack, it's also to add power to Kingler's attack. 1.5/10
