Hello, today is another Stormfront preview, Gengar!
Name: Gengar Lv. 43
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
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
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.
