Modified - We reviewed this card twice before, once in October and another time in January. Here's an excerpt from my October review: "Sonic Blade followed by a Psychic Cut equals a 2 hit KO on any pokemon in the game. Sonic Blade can be powered up by a single DRE, and since the attack places counters instead of doing damage, DRE doesn't reduce its effect.  You can easily get 2-3 OHKOs off of Psychic Cut before all your prizes are flipped. Gallade is Fighting type which is bad news for Blissey. Psychic Pokemon are few and far between so the weakness isn't bad." My opinion today is still the same except for the last sentence. Banette has sprung up, and combined with Lake Boundary it puts the kabosh on Gallade. Opposing Gardevoirs also cause trouble. This card is still a beast. 5/5


Limited - Good luck getting a stage 2 into play. If you do, it's good game for your opponent. 3/5


Gallade Lv.55 P7


Its Friday everyone! Today’s COTD today is Gallade, the beast of the Meta-game decks. With a nice 130 HP and psychic weakness, it isn’t going to die easily. The first attack is great, not only does it guarantee (As long as your opponent can’t stop the effect.) the defending pokemon will have 50 HP left, it also switches out the defending pokemon. This move can be game changing, can’t OHKO something? Switch it out and get it into OHKO range so you won’t waste a good attack! The second attack is also gold, 60 plus 20 for every prize card you flip face up means a possible 180 in one attack! But with power comes responsibility, the responsibility to know when to use that power, because a single OHKO and 60 for (Fighting)(C)(C) won’t win you very many games you need to be careful when you go all out.


Pros –

Nice HP

Nice evolution line

First attack is great

Second attack is awesome


Cons –

Meta-gameable now that it is so widely used

Weakness to Gardevoir sucks in mirror matches.

2 retreat cost is a bit big.


Modified – Have you not looked outside yet? This guy is everywhere! 4.5/5


Limited – For the last time, why would anyone in there right mind use Pop packs in limited? X/5


Well, looks like that wraps up another week of pokemon COTD!

This is an OK card. Nothing more nothing less. Its slightly over the curve (powervise) and it’s  very good in the beginning. Its end game is pretty bad though. The reason people hype this is because of how it and gardevoir covers each others weaknesses. The main reason to chase POP boosters.
