Unlimited - Slow, high retreat cost, bad. Base set Gastly pwnage! 1/5
Modified - He looks bad in this format too. I guess if you somehow got 90 damage on it, you'd do 110 with Raging Flood, but that's blah. Once Raging Flood is doing decent damage it's practically dead. Wild Waves is pretty good, it can be powered up with a boost. But I'd rather use Whiscash MT, since it does 20 to each Benched Pokemon, not 10. The retreat cost of 4 is horrible. 1/5
Limited - Very nice. The healing effect from Raging Flood is good in this format since not many Pokemon can OHKO; they're usually hitting for puny amounts of damage. Wild Waves has 3 colorless energy in its cost so that can easily be powered up to sweep your opponent's Pokemon. 4/5

Unlimited: 1 Its big, its got lame attacks, and if you get 2 energy on it at all, its SER next turn.

Modified:  3  Extra damage from having damage, and then self healing....could be interesting if done well. There is also a Gastrodon East Sea that moves its damage counters to another Gastrodon using an attack. VERY expensive retreat, without Fluffy Berry, switch will just have to be part of any deck that uses the card.

100HP stage 1 is nice. Resistance to Electric -20, weak to grass +30, not bad. Not great either.

The second attack is pricey but 80 is a nice big number and it hits both players benches for 10 each. Be on the lookout for cards that add damage times the number of pokemon in play with damage counters on them, that will make this overpriced attack very useful.

Limited : 4.5  It gets a high number simply due to the stage 1 and 2 energy self healing attack. Its not a game winner, but it will be sitting around for a long time for you to search for and power something up.
