Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day



EX Crystal Guardian

Date Reviewed: 09.19.06

Ratings & Reviews Summary
Unlimited: 2
Modified: 2.85
Limited: 1.75

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.

Mawile CG

Modified 2.5/5 - Not that sure about its potential yet, but it is very similar to Lunatone LM's attack, allowing you to find trainers. However, this version is much better, because you can also find Supporters. It just depends if there are better things to do in turn 1 (such as investing an Energy to your main attacker's pre-evolutions) in a given situation.

Kempley05 Mawile CG

Mawile is in my opinion one of the more underrated potential starters in CG. We say last year How Lunatone LM made its name as being a great starter, in some the the best decks, including RK9, some Draggytode at worlds and Bannete/Medicham. Although he doesn't get rid of Fire and colourless bodies like Lunarock, he allows you to search for supporters enhancing your set up even further. I see him being a good starter in stage 2, slow set-up decks, as well as a possible tech in Mewtric. In addition he can search and instantly attach tools, which gets round the trainer lock against decks like Mewtric, and if you search for Cessation Crystal, it get rids of Verstatile, Smooth Over, and every other power and body in the game.

Unlimited - 1/5
Modified - 3/5 - like I say, its a technically good card that will see play, to what extent is yet to be seen.
Limited - 2.5/5 Not many trainers here, but still good to search for any you might have

Muk Man
Today’s Card Of The Day is…Mawile from Crystal Guardians. This card is the perfect pokemon to make use of, and abuse all of the new Pokemon tools. For 1 colorless energy, you can search you deck for any trainer card, and if you grab a tool you can attach it. This is important, because with new decks depending on powers and bodies to set up. A cessation crystal, turn 1 can cause massive damage. The second attack can be just as good, (Mew ex beware) causing 50 damage to an ex on turn 2. So if you’re looking for a starter, Mawile is a solid choice

Combos: Works well with any pokemon that makes use of tools. Kingler (CG),
Slowking (UF)

Modified: 3/5 Can be just as helpful as it can be useless.

Limited: 1/5 No Metal means no attack.

Current ebay Value: $1.50 (plus or minus $.75 cent)

My name is Mawile
I’ll show you my mining
It will give you a Trainer
So please stop whining

Unlimited: The first attack is nice but we have better search like CPU. Bite Off
Is ok I guess cause there still is Vileplume ex and Suicune ex.

Rating : 1/5

Modified: Could become great here but not sure if it will really become that great.
I mean he has a great first attack wich is sorta like Lunatone’s but this time you can search
for a supporter as well. And that makes some kind of a deferens. It can attack Ex’s for more kinda like Jirachi and it has resistance for Metal. Has potential but needs the right fit.

Rating : 2/5

Limited: Nice since you can search for trainer and supporter wich you don’t have much in Limited.

Rating : 1.5/5
Computer Guy Mawile from Ex Crystal Guardians.

I love this card because it can get you a trainer first turn. If you get a pokemon tool card you get to attach it to a pokemon. That could be a first turn Cessation Crystal. There are many other combos out there.

Unlimited: 1/5

Modified: 3.5/5

Limited: 3/5
