Back to the main COTD Page

Butterfree Lv.36 GE

It’s hip, it’s new, it’s butter-free! Today’s COTD has some bad qualities and some redeeming qualities. 1 (G) for 30 is OK, on a stage 2 it may seem like a waste but it’s different with Butterfree. Caterpie and Metapod both have poke-powers that let it evolve, giving you a 50% chance turn 1 that you don’t evolve at all, 25% chance you only evolve into Metapod, and 25% chance you evolve all the way into Butterfree turn 1! 30 damage with heal turn one is great, not only that but you can heal any of your pokemon, not just Butterfree. I could see ‘Parallel Drain’ working great with a whole bunch of plus powers, a few strength charms, and Mothim. If you used 1 strength charm the turn after you attacked with Mothim’s free attack ‘Silver Wind’ you would do an effective 80 damage for one energy (Unless they retreat.) And you heal one of your pokemon 80 damage. You add a few more plus powers and Butterfree can do well over 100 damage if done right.

Pros –
T1 possibilities
30 for (G) W/ heal is awesome
Free retreat
Nice HP

Cons –
Lacks good second attack
Can heal only one pokemon at a time

Modified – This deck could work, just watch out for Magmortar. 4/5

Limited – If you get all of the evolution stages and use grass energies go for it 4.5/5

Can’t… Wait… For… States…

Butterfree lv 36


This card is VERY fast odds of you not getting a turn 2 butterfree if you h

Start with caterpie are very slim. This however is the main reason to play this its preevos are great but its attacks and HP are mediocre at best.

Free retreat and its first attack may be a minor combo on itself (ill trust you to see how)

Its fast and with help of DRE very fast, but its mediocrity leaves a lot to be desired. In limited play it if you can get it play it.


Modified 2.5 (speed is potential)

Limited 3.5
