Hello, today is another Stormfront preview, Gengar!

Name: Gengar Lv. 43
Set: Stormfront
Rarity: Rare

HP: (110) - Not great for a Stage 2, just OK.

Weakness/Resistance: (Darkness+30/Colorless-20) - Darkness weakness isn't horrible, but the colorless resistance is great!

Retreat Cost: (0) - Gengar with no retreat cost?! Nice!!

Poke-POWER: (Fainting Spell) - This is a very nice Poke-Power, but it is only based on a flip. This isn't bad though, because Gengar also has other noteworthy attacks, not having to depend on this power and its flippiness.

Attack #1: (P - Shadow Room) - This is a great attack because it avoids doing damage, getting around effects that prevent damage and bench damage. (And it gets around Mr. Mime!)

Attack #2: (PC - Poltergeist) - This brings back memories of the Vileplume d, but this Gengar is much more flexible and just plain better. This is a good attack and it can hurt your opponent if he or she has a large hand.

Final Analysis: This Gengar is very good, in my opinion much better than the older one, and I believe this could become a noteworthy part of the metagame, mainly because of its deadly (literally) Poke-POWER. Its attacks are very good too, giving it a lot of diversity, because it has free retreat and can spread damage and just load it on with Poltergeist.

Modified: I like this card too, just like yesterday's. I would expect to see at least a little use of it. (4/5)

Limited: This is a nice cheap card to use in limited. Poltergeist wouldn't do much, but Fainting Spell and Shadow Room would be great. (4/5)

Tuesday's card of the day is the new Gengar from Stormfront not to mention that it's my second favorite ghost Pokémon. Let's review his stats first he has 110HP, a plus 30 weakness to dark, a minus 20 resistance to colorless, and no retreat cost. Gengars poke-power Fainting spell is just awesome during your opponents turn if Gengar would be knocked out by damage from an attack you may flip a coin if heads the defending Pokémon is now knocked out. I can see this card being in a few decks already with Gengars annoying power it might make your opponent think twice before knocking out Gengar. His first attack Shadow room for one psychic energy it lets you choose one of your opponents Pokémon and place three damage counters on it but if that Pokémon has a poke-power you put six damage counters on that Pokémon this attack is great for sniping those benched claydols or low HP Pokémon on the bench. Gengars second attack Poltergeist for two psychic energies it allows you to look at your opponents hand and does 30 damage times the amount of trainer, supporter, and stadium cards in your opponent's hand. Gengar will probably see some play thanks to its awesome poke-power and it's to great attacks the only thing I don't like here is that it only has 110HP but overall there's no other complaints I have.
