Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day


Time-Space Distortion

Diamond & Pearl Mysterious Treasures


Date Reviewed: 08.30.07

Ratings & Reviews Summary
Unlimited: 1.00
Modified: 4.67
Limited: 4.75

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


Name: Time-Space Distortion

Type: Trainer

Sub-Type: Normal

Set: Mysterious Treasures

Card#: 124/123

Rarity: Secret Rare

Text: Flip 3 coins.  For each heads, search your discard pile for a Pokémon, show it to your opponent, and put it into your hand.


Today we look at the new Normal Trainer and Secret Rare from Mysterious Treasures, Time-Space Distortion.  Flip three coins and get back a Pokémon from the discard for each heads.  Odds are good this won’t fail: there’s just one outcome (Tails, Tails, Tails) versus seven other outcomes that result in at least one Pokémon.


It’s a Normal Trainer so there’s no issues like there would be if it was another form of Trainer (or card that used to be classified as a Trainer, like Supporters).  It is a good way to get back a Level X Pokémon without any real hassle.  It is a good way to get a TecH Pokémon back without any hassle.  With luck, it can get an entire Evolution line back to your hand…


Simply put, this card is good.  Even I don’t think I can explain why anymore clearly.  Fails roughly 1-in-7 times, but it’s a Normal Trainer so who cares?




Unlimited: 1/5 – Here I’d go with the reliable alternatives, like Pokémon Retriever and the easy searching options.


Advanced: 4/5 – It’s not overly broken, just so simple-but useful.


Limited: 4.5/5 – As long as you pull even one useful Pokémon, the chance to bring it back is sick in such a format.

One of my favourite cards from the new Mysterious Treasures expansion. Although flip-based, the ease of use is fantastic. Returning a pokémon has endless combos for success. You could re-use Lucario LevelX's power Stance for lasting immunity, use a castform for energy or return a vital tech card such as Rayquaza ex or Jolteon*! Very close to perfect if only it weren't for the flipping.

Wow, a super rare trainer. This thing looks awesome, able to get back a whole line of pokemon if all of them are heads (basic – stage 2.) Or at least get back a pokemon that you need. (Like when you have a stage 1 Monferno ready but your only Infernape are in the discard.) Non-supporter, no cost, what’s not to love. This is going to be a great card when used either in a deck, or for trading. That’s as long as you can get your hands on one.

Pros –
Bring back KOed or discarded Pokemon
Super rare (Ooohhh… Shiny)

Cons –
Super rare (Hard to get)

Unlimited – With the vast array of non-supporter trainers in unlimited, it’s junk here. 1/5

Modified – Oh yea, this is perfect. Get back a pokemon, non-supporter, can’t be butchered by new players because it’s so dang rare. =P 5/5

Limited – Wow, same applies as before, just add another point because it’s rare and you pulled it. =P 6/5 (Yea it’s that good.)

I want one of these… *Cries*
