Gengar-Gengar is a lot of fun I think in some ways he is better or worse than his Legend Maker Counter part. High HP and the + weakness make him a great psychic pokemon to play with he can also spread damage really easily and protect himself at the same time.


Gengar Lv. 39 D&P

Ooohhh… Aaahhh… Life drain is one of my favorite attacks as the effect is amazing (140 indefensible damage on a Flygon EX?!?!) But the attack itself is very risky, but if you don’t get it off the first time, you can always try again as his good HP and rare type weakness lets him survive almost any attack at least once. And his second attack is very complementary to his first. First turn you get a heads on life drain, then the next turn you use shadow dance and knock the poke’ out even if it retreated, and then you get to retreat Gengar. The only problem with this card is that it has been overshadowed by that “mad fire monkey king” Infernape.

Pros -
10 hp from KO!!!
Can’t be OHKO’ed by Infernape
40 damage to whatever you want
(Two headed coins… Lol)

Cons –
Flipping and all its flippy flippingness
1 retreat on a ghost!!! (Gengar must gain some weight after evolving from Haunter. Lol)

Unlimited – … 1/5

Modified – He’s good!!! Not perfect but he’s great if you like your luck. 4/5

Limited – Not very good here as most poke’ here have low HP and don’t need to be life drained. 2/5

If you want to build a deck with this guy, grab a 4 leaf clover, a horse shoe, a lucky rabbit’s foot, and that pair of lucky underwear you’ve had forever…

pikachu 678 gengar

i like this pokemon hes a stage 2 with 110 hp and to good attacks for 1 c you can almost ko a pokemon then for pc you can knock it out and deal 30 more damage in any way you like its hp is ok and the fact you have to switch it is annoying but you could add switch

so with all said and done

unlimited 2/5 wont see much play here

modified4/5 it could see play

limited 1/5 good luck getting it out
Moza Gengar

I always liked gengar cards, and this one is no different. However, it is much more difficult to use with the new fossil ruling. And because of the new fossil ruling, I need to rate this card very low =[

Unlimited: 1/5
ER bait and slow.

Modified: 1.5/5
Would be 4/5 or 5/5 if the fossil rule didn't change. It can still work, just not to well

Limited: 2/5
3 energy for 40? Stage 2? The first attack could be nice, but it takes to long to get it out.

British Nationals


this card had the potential to be good, but they forgot to give him a poke-power and his second attack lacks in damage.

Gengar lv 39
I really like this card its reminds me of the expedition gengar which in its time were really strong.
It could attack for 40 and switch to something like a baby poke with focus band or a fossil or a jumpluff with fluff great fun.
Today however the options are far worse. fossil ruling and no babies makes this option much less appeling.
The attack is ok. its only 40 but you can place them how you like and being "put damage" you can trow the DBRE under without any worries.
Its first attack is really cheap and with endless options for combos. This card just migth be a winner :).
110 hp is ok and with energy cost of only 1 C briney comboes well with this one.
Needing to flip a coin for it to work is of course frustrating for any competetive player and migth just keep this from seeing any real play.
its weakness is brilliant its resistence is subpar. psychic typing is normally ok but as gengar never attacks for damadge it doesnt matter. great with only 1 retreat and it could be important as i think a gengar deck would retreat or briney quite a lot.
a fine card which migth see play.
in limited leave it. its no good a stage 2 that attacks for 40. BLAH
classic maybe not an automatic 1 like many others but not obvielsly good either
modified: 3.5
classic: 2
limited: 1.5

Gengar Lv. 39 Diamond and Pearl

Unlimited: 1.5/5 This is a lot better here than some other cards form this set, hence the slightly higher rating, however I wouldn't suggest playing this.

Modified: 3.5/5 For some reason, I really like this card. It's first attack, while flippy, can return a VERY handsome reward. Meanwhile its second attack is DRE'able and can amass lots of damage if played correctly. Of course, having the old fossil rule would've made this card better, but it still can hold its own if played strategically enough.

Limited: 4/5 Play this if you draft the line.
Probably my friend's most favorite pokemon, this incarnation is not so great. It has 110 hp, which will keep away the OHKO for a while. It has interesting attacks. Life Drain is good, but has a 50% chance of not working. Pokemon need to be more consistent than this if they are to be played widely. The second attack is ok, but 40 damage for 3 energy is never very high on my great attack list. It does switch Gengar out, but his retreat cost is minimal so it is not all that great. Could work well in a hit and run style of deck with huge hp blockers, but seeing as Psychic pokemon are not known for high HP, this is unlikely as a scenario.
Modified-2/5 (I would like a more reliable pokemon here)
Limited-2/5 (stage 2 is not all that playable here)
