Modified - Hmm Cacturne..... I see nothing special about this one. The attacks are below average and risky. It looks like something from Base Set, like Sandslash or Dewgong. 1/5

Limited - I guess any attack that only needs colorless energy is cool, but only 20-40 damage? Blah. 2/5
(03/20/08) - Cacturne Lv. 36

Name: Cacturne Lv. 36
Set: Great Encounters
Rarity: Uncommon

Analysis: Cacturne is kind of like a bad version or Sharpedo. It does less damage, has a higher retreat cost, and a bad bad bad Weakness. Needle Arm is a makes up for less damage by requiring the Defending Pokemon to have only 1 damage counter on it. Regardless, it's still not good.

Modified: Not good at all. Low HP, bad attacks, and a horrible weakness. (1.5/5)

Limited: Slightly better here, but any playable evolutions are good. (2/5)

Cacturne Lv.36 GE
Hola amigos. Today’s COTD today is one that will see basically no play at all. Low HP, Bad weakness, bad attacks, and horrible basic. It just isn’t worth it all around… Sorry for the short review but, the worse the card the shorter the review.
Pros –
Nice resistance…
Cons –
Low HP
Bad weakness
Horrid Basic
Bad attacks
Modified – I can justifiably say 1/5!
Limited – you can use pin missile in a colorless loving environment… 3/5
First 1/5 I’ve ever handed out in Modified!

The first attack is flippy and thereby pretty useless. The second attack on the other hand can bring a few KO’s if you can prepare the bench. Nonetheless DCC is A LOT to invest in a poke with only 80 HP. Psychic resistance is good but not enough to justify the use of this card.
