Arbok

Modified - Arbok is usually a weak card. This ain't an exception. Arbok with something like Venusaur to do a guaranteed 50 damage for only 1 energy is good, but 50 damage doesn't win games. 100-150 damage does. 1/5

Limited - 10 damage with poison followed up with 50 on your next turn is nice. 3/5

(03/19/08) - Arbok Lv. 31

Name: Arbok Lv. 31
Set: Great Encounters
Rarity: Uncommon

Analysis: Ah, yesss, yesss. Arbok. Unfortunately, this guy is kind of bad. :( It has low HP, a bad weakness, and a high retreat cost. Deadly Poison is useful, especially with Venusaur and/or Weezing. It gives automatic poison or 40 extra damage, only for 1 energy. Pretty good against Gallade and Gardevoir. With Lake Boundary, 100 damage against either, plus the damage from poison (plus Weezing?) Wrap is OK, if all other options have been spent.

Modified: Not good, not bad. Can hurt your opponent. (2.5/5)

Limited: Great in Limited. Its first attack either automatically poisons plus 10 damage or hits for 50. For one Energy!! Wrap is nice and colorless. (4.5/5)

Deadly poison has its uses and wrap can be downright deadly in the right hands (or flips :o) ) but only 80 hp and psychic weakness? No thanx

Limited 3.5

Well, today’s COTD today is supposed to work well with Weezing and does to an extent. For 1 (P) it does 10 and poison or if they are already poisoned it does 50 damage for 1 (P)! Add that with Weezing’s ability to add damage to poisoned pokemon and the only things you have to fear are Xatu, Unown G, and Holon GL/WP. With 80 HP it isn’t sticking around for too long and with the +20 psychic weakness an unDRE’d Psychic Lock will bring it down to it’s knees. Don’t use wrap, just don’t unless you boost for it.
 
Pros –
Nice first attack
Boostable second attack
 
Cons –
Low HP
Bad weakness
2 much retreat
 
Modified – Could work in a non-tournament level deck. 3/5
 
Limited – have a (P) and an Ekans? If so use this! 4.5/5
 
Too bad, good attacks… Bad everything else…
