Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day

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.

Swalot CG

Modified 2/5 - I look at this card, and I can't help comparing it tot Ariados. However, its Reactive Posion attack costs 3 Energies, 1 Grass and 2 Colorless. In addition, you cannot manipulate your opponent's Bench, like Ariados can. Finally, 80 HP is not that big a difference to 70 HP.

I say that even though in the long run you can deal slightly more damage with Swalot CG (such as 90 for 3 Energies), you're much better off with Ariados that can deal slightly less damage with 1 Grass Energy.

Don't forget, if you choose Swalot CG, Double Rainbow is almost mandatory, reducing your overall attack damage.

Computer Guy Swalot from Ex Crystal Guardians.

This is a very interesting pokemon because it's first attack with double rainbow first turn is awesome. This pokemon will defanitely see some play.

Today’s Card Of The Day is…Swalot from Crystal Guardians. The poor-mans Flaridos. Of course it has a higher hp than Aridos, and it can inflict all of the status conditions in the game, but its reactive poison has been watered down with a higher energy cost. Aridos appeal is the ability to control the bench. Also Psychic weakness is not a good weakness to have right now with all the purple threat out and coming in future sets. Maybe for fun in a draft, but leave this guy in the binder.

Combos: Self-supportive, but he works well with anyone who can cause status conditions, Flareon ex, or Dunsparce for a quick 70 damage

Modified: 2/5 Bad weakness and expensive attacks is not a good combination.

Limited: 4/5 if he lasts long enough he can cause major damage

Current ebay Value: $2.00 (plus or minus $.75 cent)
