My reviews and ratings are usually for Modified only.

Snorlax from Dragon Frontiers

Modified 1/5 - It is a very weak "wall" and you'll be giving up an easy prize card.

Limited 4/5 - Although damage from its Poke-Body Bedheads, in Sealed/Prerelease it is much more viable, especially if you know your deck have superior attackers that needs to be developed on the Bench. Not so good late game, but from early to middle game, it is great.

The third card from Ex Dragon Frontier which is Snorlax (Delta)

Wow, no attacks but a Poke-Power and a Poke-Body. The Body and Power complement each other and could be a very fun card to play. This baby is going to be awesome at the Prerelease's. Anyone that is lucky enough to pull this card at a Prerelease just has to play it. It's just to tempting not to play.

Unlimited: 1/5
Modified: 2.5/5
Limited: 5/5 If I could score this card any higher in Limited I would. Amazing.
 
DarkJake Snorlax δ

DoZZzing in the fields. Let's get the usual stats out of the way: The HP is pretty low for a Snorlax, the retreat cost is huge. He is a basic Pokémon so he can easily be gotten out via Mentor, [Dual/Great]Ball, or just by starting with him. Although the usual stats aren't too promising, there is something very interesting about him. Snorlax doesn't require any energy to 'attack'. Although Snorlax doesn't actually have any attacks, he has a body and a power that function very similarly to attacks. The biggest problem is the ultimately low HP and the even lower damage output, max it could do is 40 damage (4 counters) between 1 turn. This is assuming it keeps on getting tails, of course, this just doesn't cut it.

Unlimited: He will eternally stay fallow in the discard pile. 1/5

Modified: MUCH better choices exist. 1/5

Limited: I suppose the high HP for a basic and the ability to self heal will transform it into a winner. 2/5
 
Espeon Snorlax d - Grass - HP80
Basic

Poke-Body: Toss and Turn
At the beginning of each player's turn, if Snorlax is Asleep, put 2 damage counters on
1 of your opponent's Active Pokemon.

Poke-Power: Doze
Once during your turn, if Snorlax is your Active Pokemon, you may use this Power.
Remove 2 damage counters from Snorlax. If you do, Snorlax is now Asleep.
This Power
can't be used if Snorlax is affected by a Special Condition.

Weakness: Fighting
Resistance: none
Retreat: 3

Unlimited: 3/5
It could be used as a tank here to hit for 20-40 a turn while waiting to charge something on the bench. Averaging 30 a turn isn't alot though and having only 80 hp wont keep it alive that long but it could still somehow be useful. The idea of having a first turn 20 damage while charging energy onto a bench Pokemon does seem interesting though.

Modified: 1.5/5
Doesn't seem like it will do much here. Most Pokemon in this format hit too hard for the Poke-Power to do anything and 20-40 damage just won't cut it, even if it is for 0 energy. Starters are actually needed to set up in this format, so it's not that great to start with this card either.

Limited: 5/5
Doesn't take energy and does 20-40 a turn. Healing 20 every turn is crazy in this format. This card was made for draft.
