Unlimited - Babushka. 1/5

Modified - This guy should only be used for leveling up. His attacks are stupid. 1/5

Limited - I'm not sure if Basic Darkness energies are given out in limited events. If they are, this could be decent, doing 50 damage for 3 energy. The energyless attack could help thin your deck and get the energy cards you need. 3/5
Yay, Friday at last! Today we are looking at one of the new Darkrais, the Lv. 38 version.

Name: Darkrai Lv. 38
Set: Great Encounters
Rarity: Rare Holo

Analysis: This guy isn't bad, but it probably isn't the better of the two. Both have bad weaknesses (+20 fighting), good resistances (-20 psychic), and the same retreat cost of 1. Lv. 38 has 10 less HP at 70. The first attack, 'Reach Over,' searches your deck for any one energy and puts it into your hand. Its second attack 'Darkness Pursuit,' does 50 damage normally and 100 if the defending Pokemon is Cresselia. Honestly, I would go with a combination of the two regular forms so that they can be used for different situations, because neither is really that much better than the other. Obviously use this with the Lv. X.

Modified: Not bad but not amazing. Use with Lv. X. If Cresselia gets big, definitely use this guy. (3/5)

Limited: Search for energies for free? Sure. An attack needing three specific energy? Noooo... (3/5)

Darkrai Lv.38 GE

Well met. Today’s COTD today is one of the two versions of him in this set. Both of the Darkrai offer something different, this one has 70 HP, 10 less than the other one. But, this one has a decent attack for (*) this makes him very versatile when it comes to being used as a level X. But, this one lacks a good attack. 50 for (D)(D)(C) isn’t good, and Cresselia isn’t really a pokemon your opponent will have active often so 100 isn’t going to happen much. But, if you are playing Darkrai just for his Lv.X (Either his power or his attack.) This is the Darkrai you want!

Pros –
Lv. X
Good set up move

Cons –
Weak to fighting
No good attacks ‘till Lv.X

Modified – You will see some Darkrai deck floating around, trust me. 3.75/5

Limited – It’s only good to grab energy and as a wall. 3.25/5

Well, looks like another week down the drain! Come back next week,
