UK Nationals

Very good against Exeggcutor but a prepared player will have that crucial
cesation crystal or warp point and Cloppers becomes another Stage 1 to KO.
Still, a safeguard attack is welcome. A good alrounder but not fantastic.


British Nationals

The Hp could have been a little higher but overall decent scince a lot of people use special energys and ex pokemon, so long as you have time to attach the energys maybe using double rainbow energy or scramble.

Dusclops – Crystal Guardians

Hello there. Dusclops is a card that seems to never quite be good enough for the format to be used much. There are 4 Dusclops out in modified format that are listed here; Dusclops CG 17/100 (the COTD,) Dusclops PK 14/108, Dusclops EX EM 94/106, Dusclops DX 7/107. They all are not quite good enough to use without to much support. It is still a good grab if you could combo the COTD Dusclops (or another form of stall) and the EX EM one and you could do 160 damage with 8 energies on Dusclops EX EM (you might even want to toss in a line of metagross DX for energy acceleration.) Hmmm… Now that I think about it that might make a fine deck… 160 unblockable damage (drools… =P) In any case this card falls just short of a great card (If Cursed Glare worked on all of your opponents pokemon, then it might be a different story.)

Pros –
Nice resistance (third only to lightning and psychic.)
Anti-EX that can’t be Latilocked
An OK weakness

Cons –
Only 70 HP
Cursed Glare doesn’t work on benched Poke’s
Psychic (lots of psychic protection going around)

Unlimited - 1/5 Not big enough for a Sneasle filled world
Modified – 3/5 It breaks Latilock, has other good Dusclops’ to work with, and can beat up Holon’s Poke’s.
Limited – 4/5 Makes up for in power, accessibility, and EX crushing what it lacks in HP.

That’s it for now,

“You have to be yourself, nobody else wants the job.”
