Hey everyone, welcome to a new week. Today we have Primeape from Great Encounters.

Name: Primeape Lv. 41
Set: Great Encounters
Rarity: Rare

Analysis: This guy isn't bad, especially considering many starters now have fighting weakness (Pachirisu, Absol, Stantler, etc.) If you can get a damage counter on him yourself (Cresselia Lv. X, Gardevoir PK, etc.), Primeape can definitely hit hard with its Poke-Body 'Anger Point'. 'Whump' does 50 for 3 energy but can do 90 with Anger Point and always gives the chance of protecting itself. Unfortunately 'Whump' doesn't protect Primeape directly, it just prevents the Defending Pokemon from attacking, so retreating, switching, warp pointing will end the effect. It does confuse itself, but Xatu can help that and make Primeape better. 1 Retreat Cost is good, but the weakness to Psychic is not. Will it see play?

Modified: Not bad. With a little help (Xatu and Cresselia Lv. X), Primeape could see play. But that would leave your entire team with Psychic weakness. (2.5/5)

Limited: Can protect itself but always confuses itself. Good for one attack, but that's really it. Small retreat cost helps though. (2/5)

Primeape Lv.41 GE
Welcome! Today’s COTD today is one that could see play only in the right deck. There is only one deck Idea I’ve ever seen this card in, it was a Cresselia – Xatu - Primeape deck. The whole idea was to use Cresselia Lv.X to put one damage counter on Primeape (Making him do 90 instead of 50.) and then use Xatu next turn to confuse the opponent and heal you. Add the 50% chance of attacking your opponent has with confusion with the 50% chance of making your opponent unable to attack with Primeape and that leaves your opponent only 25% chance of attacking!
Pros –
Good attack when used right.
90 non-flip needing damage is good.
Makes the opponent have only a 25%chance of attacking!
Cons –
Lowish HP
Warp point/switch/retreating
Modified – When put together right it may work. 3.75/5
Limited – yes! 90 for 1 (Fighting) 2 (C) isn’t hard to get. And with all of the low attack pokemon here Primeape is sure to have damage on it. 4.25/5
Watch out! He’s Gunna get out its angry eyes!

This cards pokebody is amazing if you can find some easy way to activate it. The low hp says that primape is likely to get OHKO’ed which means that you cannot trust your opponent to activate it for you. 3 energies for its cheapest attack is too much 20 or 30 for F would be a great improvement . some kind of memoryberry tech may be usefull with this.

All in all I believe the FCC attack combined with low hp says that this wont be played much.

It is going to be confused so pack your healing cards or maybe xatu.

Modified 2
Limited 4

Modified: Decent Poke-Body decent Attack but it comes with a downside. 3 Energy for 50 isn't that super especially
not when it makes your own Pokemon Confused, regardless if you flip heads or not. This in mind and it having
Psychic weakness makes this thing only good for Prereleases.

Rating : 1/5

Limited: Like I said above it's good in this Format. It has a mediocre attack and the possibility to stop your opponent
from attacking a Turn. And the Poke-body is a great counterpart whenever it has more then 40 damage and you need
to take out something big.

Rating : 2.5/5
