Unlimited - Base Gastly food! 1/5
Modified - The body could help it survive a little longer, but not much. The attack is weak. 1/5
Limited - The body could help it survive a little longer here too, and since Pokemon don't hit for much damage, it could be around a while. 3/5

Skiploom Lv. 20 SW
Good morning planet earth. Today’s COTD is one that hasn’t seen almost any play at all due to the lines flippy nature. The HP is a little low on all of these guys, but the powers and bodies are supposed to offset that. Skiploom’s Poke-body is simple, if she has a grass energy on her then she takes 20 less damage from attacks from evolved poke’s. That isn’t a bad body, too bad the low HP, lack of good attacks, and lack of better evolution haunt this thing day and night.
Pros –
-20 damage is like free resistance to everything
Free retreat cost is nice
20 damage for (g) is good
Cons –
Low HP
Lack of strong attacks
Needs better evolution
Unlimited – Stage 2’s here? Why? 1/5
Modified – Needs a better Jumpluff. 3.25/5
Limited- it’s OK 20 damage + free retreat + protection is great. 4.25/5
How many times will they make good stage 1’s without good evolutions? Have a nice weekend.

Arbok14 Whew... It is finally friday. Can't wait until today is over!! (At least the working part) Anyways, today we have Skiploom, the stage 1 pokemon in the Jumpluff line.


Name: Skiploom

Set: Secret Wonders

Rarity: Uncommon

Overview: Skiploom is a stage 1 pokemon, and it evolves from Hoppip and into Jumpluff. It is grass-type and has 60 HP, +20 Weakness to fire, -20 Resistance to fighting, and a Retreat Cost of 0. It has a Poke-Body called 'Cotton Balloon,' which reduces any damage done to Skiploom by attacks from your opponent's Evolved pokemon by 20 (after weakness and resistance)... only if Skiploom has grass energy attached to it. For an energy cost of (G), Skiploom can use its 'U-Turn' attack, which has a bnase damage of 20 and forces you to switch Skiploom with one of your benched Pokemon.

Analysis: At first glance, Skiploom looks terrible... 60 HP on a stage 1 and a weakness of +20 to fire, of all types. Obviously, you would want Skiploom to be around to ultimately get Jumpluff. And it can protect itself relatively well with Cotton Balloon and then U-Turn if things get dangerous. Jumpluff is a pretty good card, especially if you are good at flipping coins (or rolling dice). So really, Skiploom should only be used with Jumpluff.


Unlimited: So many things going on here. Goop gas attack, Muk, and others can just destroy this strategy. This line might be fun to play, so I'm giving it a little more than usual. (2/5)

Modified: Skiploom and Jumpluff are a good strategy here, if it is teamed up with the right partners, such as a good water Pokemon (to protect weakness) or something like Donphan, which can do damage and run away, bringing Jumpluff out. Or try it with another sniper (Jumpluff can hit up to 60 anywhere on your opponent's side). Either way, I like the Jumpluff line here, and Skiploom is great for staying healthy in anticipation of the Jumpluff. (4/5)

Limited: Not bad, especially if you get the Jumpluff or another heavy hitter, which then your could use Skiploom to stall. (3/5)

Yippee Skiploom :-)
