Hippo Dude: Sand Eject - Double Rainbow FTW!! another card that has potential next format but will likely see little play. 2/5
Moza Hippowdown

A 110 hp stage 1 is pretty good, and fighting is a nice type, but the energy costs are just to much. The 2nd attack is nice though, 60 then a bonus 40 to any damage done to the defending pokemon next turn is pretty nifty

Unlimited: 1/5
too slow

Modified: 2/5
its slow, but it could be fun

Limited: 4/5
If you can pull a line of it, use it. You won't regret it

Hippowdon Lv. 45 D&P

It’s time for Pokemon COTD!!! Today’s COTD is Hippowdon. This poke’ is on the verge of greatness. He can survive some of the biggest blasts, and has massive attacks that can do 160 damage in two turns. The only problems is that he has a retreat cost that is almost as big as Hippowdon himself and both of his attacks need 1 to many energy.

Pros –
160 damage in two turns
Stage 1

Cons –
To much retreat cost
His attacks are 1 energy to expensive

Unlimited – To slow 1/5

Modified – Almost to slow 3.5/5

Limited – Massive HP and attacks = Winner 4.5/5

Too bad neither of his attacks can OHKO anything but basics,

Hippowdon Lv. 45 Diamond and Pearl

Unlimited: 1/5 Not a chance here.

Modified: 2/5 This card is 1C too many from being a decent attacker. Its first attack has a nice effect, but 3 energy for 40 is just too cost inefficient. On the other hand, its second attack could've been decent, but failed. If it cost FCCC it "could have" been playable because of Boost. But the FFCC makes this card unplayable in a very speedy format.

Limited: 2/5 Nah. I don't like this card here. Besides having good HP for a Stage 1, it doesn't have much of anything else going for it.
A sand hippo? What were they thinking? Anyway, even though I don't like this pokemon, I have to admit that he is pretty good in card form. As I said before, 40 damage for 3 energy is never great, but keeping your opponent from switching is pretty darn good. He is a stage 1 with 110 HP, which means that he can take some punishment. His second attack is pretty good too. Four energy gets you 60 damage, which is ok. But next turn if an attack damages the defending pokemon it does
40 more damage. Meaning that if your opponent can't take out Hipowdon, then they will lose their pokemon. Combine this with Vacuum Up and you have a solid pokemon. Hippopotas is not so bad either, so you can fit this guy into many fighting decks.
Modified-3/5 (decent here, but you need to be doing more damage for the energy costs)
LImited-4.5/5 (This guy is pretty good here, even though he is a rare. If you get him, play him)

Hippopowdon lv 40
the picture is nice. its attacks are powerfull but all 1 energy too expensive.
110 hp for stage 1 is great but as said its attacks are too expensive
and to make it 3 time's a charm: ITS ATTACKS ARE GREAT, BUT TOO EXPENSIVE.
this likely wont see play as its attacsk are to expensive.
Hope ive made my oppinion clear :D
Its really a petty it could've been a really coool card but no.....
in limited its great though
