2006 World
Armaldo (PK):
With 120 HP and grass weakness, this is a difficult Pokemon to OHKO.
Definitely a nice card with Scramble Energy, Rock Blast can let you nail any

Pokemon for up to 100 damage. The nice part is that you can spread the damage out. Armaldo can work well in combination with Raichu d, as Raichu d

spreads damage using Zzzap without taking prizes. This will allow you to use Scramble Energy effectively with Armaldo.

However, comparing Rock Blast to Exeggutor d's Split Bomb lets you realize the attack is actually quite weak. The fact that you have to discard the fighting energy makes it difficult to continually use the attack, which is what would allow you to win games.

Modified: 1.5/5

Today’s Card Of The Day is…Armaold from Power Keepers
Wow, with all the restrictions and limitations on fossils, I can’t believe that this card was ever approved for production. For 5 fighting energy you can “Rock Blast” for a maximum of 100 damage spread in increments of 20 however you like. Be it all on one pokemon or spread out between 5. The only problem is you must discard a fighting energy for every 20 you do. His second attack “Mach Claw” does 60 and gets past resistance, but does little to help this card. Overall for a stage 2 to have such horrible attacks, he should have been given a poke-body/poke-power to balance him out, because as is, he is useless.

Combos: Kabutops from the same set. Drag them off, and then rock blast for a prize

Modified: 2/5 A stage 2 fossil should have much better attacks.
Limited: 4/5 with fossil stall support, and the ability to KO a weak bench basic he can do some damage.

Current ebay Value: $3.50 (Plus or minus $ 1 dollar)

P.S. Jeff Reynolds is the best T.O. EVER!

Armaldo PK

At first glance, I liked Rock Blast. The control you have of that attack is amazing; then I realized how costly it is. There's not really a good way to supply it with tons of energy since you can't use Flygon d or Altaria ex. It becomes an extremely overpriced attack. Mach Claw is fairly weak for a stage 2. 120 HP is great and grass weakness is one of the better weaknesses to have, but it just can't deal enough damage.

2 / 5
