Porygon-Z

Unlimited - Crud. 1/5

Modified - The obvious combo with this Pokemon is Lake Boundary. Convert to the type the Defending Pokemon is weak to, use Tri Attack, and you'll probably do either 80 or 160 damage. It's a little risky since 80 isn't a huge amount of damage, but 160 would OHKO just about anything in the game. Use Night Maintenance to recover basic energy that you previously discarded. Weakness to Gallade ain't too hot. 3/5

Limited - Good luck getting out a stage 2. Make sure to use plenty of different types of basic energy so you can easily OHKO the defending Pokemon. 2/5

Hey there, today we have Porygon-Z, the newest evolution in the Porygon line, now making it a Stage 2 line.

Name: Porygon-Z Lv. 54
Set: Great Encounters
Rarity: Rare Holo

Analysis: Porygon-Z is a colorless Stage 2 Pokemon with 110 HP. The HP is not bad but not great for a stage 2, but the +30 weakness to fighting kills it against Gallade. Its power is intriguing, putting it in the category with other rainbow Pokemon, such as Garchomp and Ho-Oh. Unfortunately, the attack is unreliable, though cheap. It could see some play, especially incorporated with Lake Boundary, but that would also mean Gallade would not have to flip a prize to knock it out. So yeah, it is really risky and unreliable to play this. Garchomp is probably the better of the Stage 2 rainbow Pokemon, especially since it has 20 more HP, has a better weakness, needs no coin flips to do damage, and doesn't need to discard its energies. It does have a nice stage 1, though, in Porygon2, which allows you to discard a supporter and use its effect as the effect of its Poke-Power.

Unlimited: Not even very good in Modified, so in the format of much better cards,... (1/5)

Modified: Too risky and unreliable to use here. Unless you have rigged dice or coins... Then go ahead! (2.5/5)

Limited: As difficult as it is to get a Stage 2 line here, I would say that this one isn't really worth it even if you get the line. But you can always get lucky, plus the attack is colorless, cheap, and potentially huge, so... (3.5/5)

Porygon Z

 

This is an interesting card if you can get you energys any poke (nearly) is weakness to this. With the lake this becomes interesting as 1 head or more (87.5% of the time) will deal 80 and alot of the is 160 damagde OUCH!! An obvious combo is magneton to get the rigth energy when you need it. Sadly its hp lets it down and it does not go well with disruption (except its lv which is cooool)

It is a flip card and that makes it much harder to use..

 

Classic: 2 the level x may make it playable

Modified: 2.5 (flippy)

Limited: 2

Hey there people. Sorry for lack of COTD Monday and Tuesday, I was bedridden sick with coughing and fever and whatnot. Anyway, today’s COTD is one that a ton of people will try even with the obvious +30 weakness to Gallade. Not only can this pokemon change type to match an opponent’s weakness (As long as you can discard the right basic energy.) But also can do a possible gigantic 120 for two energies. Add that is with its power and Lake Boundary and you get a possible 240 total damage. Not even Wailord can stand up to that. Wrap all of this on an evolutionary line that can do plenty even without evolving.
 
Pros –
Possible 240 for 2 energies!
Evolution line rocks
 
Cons –
Weakness to Gallade makes Porygon cry.
 
Unlimited – Stage 2’s here? Why? 1.25/5
 
Modified – Weaknessless pokemon are the only thing that can stop this OHKO machine. 4.5/5
 
Limited – Cololess + Good attack = Play it! 4/5
 
Here is hoping the month passes by quickly so we can all play Brawl!
