Unlimited - I would rather use Base Gastly. 1/5

Modified - The power is intriguing. The sleep special condition probably won't do much good though, since all your opponent has to do to wake up is flip heads at the end of their turn or at the end of your next turn. Venomoth's attack is weak and HP is low. 2/5

Limited - Special Conditions are great here. 50 for GG is pretty cheap. 4/5


Yeah, it has to be another quickie.


Venomoth LV.42 has low HP for a Stage 1 that can’t further Evolve, though at least it has a mere +20 Fire Weakness and actually has a +20 Fighting Resistance.  It also has a decent single Energy Retreat Cost, but they really could have just made it free like most “winged” Bug-Type Pokémon get when translated to the TCG.  It is a shame it isn’t bigger, as the Poké-Body and attack work fairly well together: as long as Venomoth is Active, Dangerous Scales Poisons and puts to sleep anything that attacks it for damage.  Although only a small damage yield increase and a mere 25% chance they will be Asleep on their next attack (barring outside aide), it can really add up over the course of the game.  Or would if this were a bigger Pokémon.  At least it can still shutdown several Poké-Powers.  Disturbance Dive is solid damage given the two Grass Energy it costs.  It also keeps the opponent from pulling anything fancy to get rid of it: it prevents all effects of attacks, save damage.  The problem is that damage is enough to KO something with only 80 HP pretty quick.




Unlimited: 1/5


Modified: 2/5


Limited: 4/5 – Low rarity and a tendency for players to rely upon effect based attacks makes this bug soar in this format.


Venomoth is a fairly unused card due to the lack of HP- But in SW the Venomoth is fairly good its upsides include:

GREAT Poke-Body-asleep and poisoned

So-So Attack effect will work great against Xatu SW with protecting against special conditions

1 Retreat cost

2 for fifty damage+ effect

Fighting Resistance- Mario Protection

Venomoth also has its downsides:

80 HP

OHKO by Hothead Monkey+ Flygon EX d+ Gardevoir EX d

Fire weakness +20


Unlimited: 2.33/5


Modified: 2/5


Limited: 3.5/5



My name is Venomoth
My retreat cost is cheap
After you attacked me
Your Poisond and Asleep

Unlimited: The Body isn’t that great here you’ll probably get GOW right in your face.
Rating : 1/5

Modified: Could be very annoying to play against but not to hard to play around either.
Very decent attack for 2 energy with a nice side effect.
Rating : 2.5/5

Limited: Solid card; 70 HP, good attack, yeah take it.
Rating : 5/5
