Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day



Ex Crystal Guardians


Date Reviewed: 09.14.06

Ratings & Reviews Summary
Unlimited: 2.5
Modified: 2.65
Limited: 3.5

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.

Dugtrio CG

Modified 3/5 - I think protecting your Bench can be quite valuable, since Steelix ex will still be a major force. The attacks are average, but I think Dugtrio will worth a 2-2 line (Basic - Stage 1) for a number of decks.

It depends if your primary attacker, such as Aggron ex, would be a huge energy investment that's worth protecting on the Bench.

Computer Guy Dugtrio from Ex Crystal Guardians. Apparently the first Dugtrio reviewed ever at Pojo.

The Poke-Boby is what makes this card stand out. By preventing benched damage that almost shuts down Delta Eggs and any other decks that hit the bench like Steelix ex.

The attacks are nice too.


Unlimited: 2/5

Modified: 3.5/5

Limited: 4/5
DarkJake Dugtrio

Over-rated alert. Let's take a gander at the stats; 70 HP for a Stage 1 is pretty bad, it should've been higher. Dig Under isn't priced so bad, although the biggest problem is that Dugtrio is to be only considered as a tech to sit on the bench, playing a deck surrounded by him wouldn't be so smart because 70 HP is easy to do, and fitting in fighting energy isn't. The 2nd attack, 60 for FCC, is again, not very special. People want to use Dugtrio for his body, as long as Dugtrio is in play (even on bench) your opponent can't do damage to you via attacks. Of course, reversals, ER2s, and non-damaging bench-hitting (damage counters, switching) will still affect you. The biggest problem is how popular Cease Crystal is getting, and with that attached to an active, Dugtrio becomes a dead card.

Unlimited: Oh please. 1/5

Modified: I don't like this guy…some people say there's a future in him, but a 1-1 line (wasting 2 card spaces) to gain a GAMBLE AT SPECIFIC IMMUNITY just doesn't cut it for me. 2/5

Limited: Not that great, because Cease Crystal is in this actual set…I guess it is a strong stage 1 for draft. 3/5

My name is Dugtrio
I cause tremors 1.7 on the scale
Your bench can’t be damaged
Because of my Sand Veil

Woow we never reviewd a Dugtrio before 0_0

Unlimited: There isn’t a decent Pokemon in Unlimited that can hit the damage, Sure there are enough choices and combo to choose, but the popular decks in Unlimited don’t have any bench hitters. And it’s attacks aren’t that good.

Rating : 1/5

Modified: Kinda nice even though Steelix isn’t that fast anymore (No Blastoise Ex) There are other ways but even if it was fast enough to do it, this guy will prevent it cause of the Sand Veil Poke-Body. It would be a nice ad to a Polistall deck (Look at SceptileRancher’s Tip)

Rating : 2/5

Limited: There will always be some bench hitters out here and this guy stop them not only that it can hit the bench itself too and 3 for 60 is a good only thing bad that it does 10 to itself.

Rating : 2.5/5
