Roseanne's Research
Unlimited - No reason to use this when you have stuff like Professor Oak, Computer Search, Item Finder, etc. 1/5
Modified - This will see play in many modified decks. You do get 1 less card than you would with Holon Mentor, but unlike Holon Mentor you don't discard a card, and RR never becomes a dead card in your hand. If your bench is filled up you can search for energy, and if your hand is full of energy you can search for basics. Very versatile. It almost feels like Holon Transceiver. 4/5
Limited - YES! Pokemon are usually energy specific in this format, so search your deck for whatever type of Energy you need, search for the Basic that the Stage 1 in your hand evolves from, whatever. 5/5

Roseanne’s Research SW
Morning all. Today’s COTD is one that threatens the usage of our old friend Holon Mentor. The effect is pretty straightforward; get 2 basic pokemon, 2 basic energies, or 1 basic pokemon and 1 basic energy. A lot of people are questioning whether they should use this card in their deck, and I’ll help with that question. First, how many basic pokemon do you need on the bench? If you don’t need many, use Roseanne’s. If you need quite a few, use Mentor. Second, does your deck have a hard time getting energies? If it does, use Roseanne’s. If it doesn’t, use Mentor. And last, question if you want to discard or not, this may sound like a silly question, but decks like Infernape, Electrivire, and such need energies in the discard. If no, use Roseanne’s. If yes, use Mentor. Whichever you got 2/3 for, you should probably use in your deck.
Pros –
Basic pokemon OR energies
No discard
Cons –
Less pokemon than Mentor
No discard
Unlimited – Bill and Oak rule the trainer world here. 1/5
Modified – Use it if you need it, use Mentor if you don’t. 4.25/5
Limited – Basic pokemon or energies??? Yes please! 4.99/5
Ouch, the choice between this and Mentor can be close…
“Of all the things I’ve lost, I miss my mind the most.”


My name is Roseanne

Search in any combination of 2

You can choose Pokemon or Energy

And I will get them for you


Unlimited: We have so many better search cards to choose from.


Rating : 1/5


Modified: Good card, as it can search for Pokemon and Energy. Too bad it can only get Basic Pokemon. Still it beats Stone’s Project but I think Cast Away still rocks because you can get a Tool, Energy and Supporter.


Rating : 2.5/5


Limited: Good this set is awesome for Pre-release. Bebe’s and this are the only cards in the set that can search specifically for something so yeah always take this one.


Rating : 5/5

Roseanne's Research

Great ball couldn't get exs, Mentor could but at a cost and not Rayquaza ex, Lanette's got everything but needed different colours. Dual ball got everything also but was flippy. Take away all these negatives and you get the heavily useful effect of Roseanne. The text is not "get three basic Pokemon" but instead basic energies are available instead. The advantages are immediate - with a high energy hand or low energy hand you have balance and sustainability. With many decks such as Empoleon/Lucario, decks using Holon energy (Blissey) and decks with low energy count, this can be a lifesaver.
There's nothing so "wrong" with the card; it will likely become a staple supporter. Doesn't deserve losing any marks from me.
Modified: 5/5
Limited: Thinning your deck will help, and the 1 supporter rule should not be a hindrance in this restrictive format. Might even let you develop lines quickly where the evolution cards are topdecked. Just draft it, makes sense. 5/5
Unlimited: There are better choices + omnipresence of trainer denial + general lack of useful basic energy = not too useful. In Rain dance, it may help as you can get your Suicune ex or drop some more waters which is a little helpful. 1.4/5
