Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day


Dragonite δ

EX Delta Species


Date Reviewed: 01.01.07

Ratings & Reviews Summary
Unlimited: 1.25
Modified: 4.15
Limited: 1.85

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

2006 World
Great in combination with Metagross d, Dragonite d works best to assist other Pokemon in attacking. Overall, its attacks are quite weak, so you'll want to pick another delta Pokemon and fit the Holon Engine into your deck.

Blastoise (Base) is probably your best form of energy manipulation. A vulnerable target for Neo: Genesis Murkrow.

The difficulty of getting a Stage2 out means its usually a dead card in your deck, even with Dratini & Dragonair.

5th place Worlds 2006 (Also current "best looking player")
Dragonite d

Dragonite d is the second half of the “Metanite” combo. Its Poke-Power allows you to attach a Lightning Energy Card from your discard pile to any of your benched Pokemon. This is obviously insanely good with Metagross d’s Crush and Burn, but also works well with anything else that discards energy, like Lugia ex, or Latios*. Agility is also a nice attack to buy some turns while you try and get another Metagross built.

Unlimited: 2/5

Slow, but does well against Energy Removal. Still pretty bad here, though.

Modified: 4/5

Hurt by a lot of stadiums, but Delta Charge is still one of the best Poke-Powers in the game right now, and makes Metanite the beast it is.

Limited: 2/5

Slow stage 2 with Mediocre attacks, but Delta Charge is alright here.
Kempley05 Dragonite

This week we’re reviewing some of the cards that see play in one of the deck most popular decks so far this year - “Metanite”

Today it’s Dragonite. This card is nothing special, agility’s an ok attack, it’s second is very overpriced, but it’s the power that makes this card a force to be reckoned with.

Think back a couple of years ago to the deck “Blaze”, a similar effect with fire energy dominated the format for a year or so. We don’t have anything like the old Blaziken ex, but the effect is still seeing play. Largely it’s combined with Metagross from ds for some big damage, but it’s also worked alongside Ampharos uf. Expect to see more of it as we enter the new year. The ability to capitalise on negative effects like discard is very cool.

Unlimited 1/5 – There are better energy manipulation cards around.

Modified 4.5/5 – Combined with the right attacker, one of the best energy manipulation cards in the format.

Limited 2/5 - if you can set-up, a very good attacker, but you’ll need the basic and stage 1 line, along with metal energy.
