Modified - Palm Strike is too risky. Spirited Throw is decent if Hariyama has fewer remaining HP than the Defending Pokemon. But since none of its attacks are really game breaking, I'd stay away from this card. 2/5

Limited - As Hariyama becomes damaged, Spirited Throw will do 80 for 3 energy, enough to OHKO many Pokemon. 3/5
(03/27/08) - Hariyama Lv. 38

Name: Hariyama Lv. 38
Set: Great Encounters
Rarity: Uncommon

Analysis: Hariyama unfortunately is not very good. Yeah, 100 HP is great on a Stage 1, but a retreat cost of 3 and weakness to Psychic is not. Palm Strike is luck-based and can only do 60 damage anyway. Spirited Throw works well against Stage 2's, but 80 damage is less than Hariyama's HP is anyway, so it will not OHKO often.

Modified: No thanks, Lucario is a better Stage 1 Fighter. (1.5/5)

Limited: Slightly better here, because it gets stronger against bigger Pokemon, but its retreat cost is horrible... (2.5/5)

A lot of hp and a lot of retreat, In modified this is not going to cut it as it is just weaker than other choices. In limited however this is interesting. Its fast hits hard and reaches the magical 80 that can defeat so many pokes in this format. To get full use of its attack combine it with cards like buffer pieice.
