Unlimited - All Salamences are bad here so no reason to use Shelgon. 1/5

Modified - There are 3 Salamence in this format but none of them are really great. The 30 damage protection could help stall a bit while you get a Salamence set up. 2/5

Limited - All colorless energy in its attack costs and 30 damage reduction is great. Most Pokemon hit for wimpy amounts of damage so a 30 damage reduction could reduce it to 0. 3/5

Shelgon Lv. 32 SW
Good morning planet earth, I hope your day has been great so far. Today’s COTD is Shelgon, the stage 1 to one of the biggest, baddest, most favoritism attracting pokemon known to man so far. Unfortunately, if you wanted to play dragons, you should have played last year. The stage 2 of this thing Requires 2 (c) for 50, or 2 (w) and 2 (fire) for either 100 to active or 100 to a benched pokemon (Depending on what you discard) is just too much in this fast format we are in now. Shelgon cannot save his stage 2, only doing 30 for 3 (c) unless you waste a previous turn then it does 80… Not enough to save himself yet alone Salamence.
Pros –
Stage 1
80 for 3 (c)
Cons –
Colorless weakness
 2 much retreat cost (Old pun I know)
Too slow
You have to charge to do 80
Unlimited - stage 2’s here? Never 1/5
Modified – if Saly was better than you’d see more of this guy 2.75/5
Limited – good damage for colorless energies? Count me in! 4.25/5
Good luck with the rest of your day,

limited 3.5

As preevos hardly ever matter i havent wrote alot about them. Need a deck report? just one a few city champs with magmortar

Arbok14 Whoo, it's almost the end of the week! Let me tell you, this has been a stressful one for me here, and I hope all of you had a better week than I. Anyways, let's get on with this--Today we have another stage 1, Shelgon, which evolves from Bagon and then into the mighty Salamence.


Name: Shelgon LV. 32
Set: Secret Wonders
Rarity: Uncommon

Overview: Again, Shelgon is a stage 1 Pokemon which evolves from Bagon and then evolves into Salamence. This guy is colorless-type and has 80 HP, +20 weakness to colorless, -20 resistance to fighting, and a retreat cost of 2. Its first attack, 'Focus Energy,' costs (C) and makes its other attack, 'Protect Charge,' have a base damage of 80 on your next turn. Its second attack, 'Protect Charge,' costs (CCC), has a base damage of 30, and reduces damage done to Shelgon by attacks on your opponent's next turn by 30, after applying weakness and resistance.

Analysis: Colorless-type is OK, but its weakness to colorless is bad, considering that Blissey is still so popular. Resistance to fighting is good, because it will force Gallade to flip over one more prize and Lucario would also be at a disadvantage. I like the move combo, but it would probably only be used once per game (if that), because Salamence would be who you would want. But if you are having trouble getting Sally out, Protect Charge can help keep Shelgon healthy until you do. I'd say use this guy to setup for whatever Salamence you use, because the Protect Charge can help in the long run.


Unlimited: Salamence is too slow to use here, therefore Shelgon should not be seen here. (1/5)

Modified: I like the new Salamence in Secret Wonders. I think that it has a decent chance against anything except Blissey. Use Shelgon to set it up to start healthy. (3.5/5)

Limited: Very good here. Colorless attacks that can do damage and protect you. Sweet. Its colorless weakness is bad here though, because there are a lot of colorless pokemon in this set. (4/5)
