1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  5 is the highest rating.

2006 World

Like Banette ex, Banette PK works best later in the game. However, Grudge is never going to achieve the 90 that Shadow Chant can. Bench Manipulation is not as strong as it looks, as it's doing 80 or less half the time to a full bench. However, having a Pokemon that doesn't give up two prizes is a nice reason consider playing one in your Banette deck.

Modified 2/5

Bannete PK:

Unlimited Rating 1/5: Type specific attacks make this card very bad in unlimited. And his attacks are very sub-par

Modified Rating 2/5: This card is inferior to other Bannetes in the format.Grudge maxes out at 70 which is less than Bannete EX , and this card doesn't have Safe-Guard. Bench Manipulation is decent at best. Most Banny decks run Giant Stump so players will be weary to put their basics down.

Limited Rating 3/5: The only reason this card earns a 3/5 from me is because of his bottom attack. Grudge is terrible in a 4 prize card format. However in limited players will have their bench full or nearly full.

My name is Banette
It’s a frustration
I make you flip coins
With my Bench Manipulation

Unlimited: Weakness for Darkness means Sneasel will KO it easy. And the attacks aren’t To good too.

Rating : 1/5

Modified: We have 2 better Banette’s to choose from like the Ex version and the Safe Guard version. I really don’t know why we would need another Banette.

Rating : 1/5

Limited: Very nice card here. Bench Manipulation can do a lot of damage cause in Limited your opponent will have a full bench most of the time.

Rating : 2.5/5
