Jigglypuff13 10/9 Poké Radar (LA)
Right, a simple card today (again), Poké Radar, a card which is a little dependant on how many Pokémon you run and how many you have used. What this card does is it looks at the top 5 cards of your deck, and then you take all the Pokémon you find there, and then the others get shuffled into your deck. That sounds really good, getting multiple Pokémon in one go, but if anything, it's actually a bit of a weaker Master/Dusk Ball. Why? Now, before I go onto that, I want you to think of every time you played Master/Dusk Ball that you can remember. Now, how many times have you used them and got no Pokémon in those 7 cards? It's probably quite a few times, and thus, with Poké Radar's 5 cards, it's probably a little more likely to happen. Of course, there are all of those times you had more than 1 Pokémon in those 7 cards and wanted them all, but because it's 7 cards there and 5 for this new card, it's a little less likely to happen for Poké Radar.
OK, so it doesn't look very likely that you'll get many Pokémon, but how many Pokémon where you playing in those decks with Master/Dusk Ball? Probably between 16 and 20-something. Now, the more Pokémon you play, the more likely you are to get any in Master/Dusk Ball/Poké Radar. Now, because of this, it's a lot more effective to use those sorts of cards in decks with lots of Pokémon. Therefore, the more Pokémon you play, the more useful Poké Radar is and the more I would recommend playing Poké Radar in your deck.
There is just one final reason why I wouldn't play it, or at least not use it as a replacement to Bebe's Search, with Poké Radar, you are at the mercy of luck as to what Pokémon you get. You may want a certain one, but not get it, thus the reason why it will never be a replacement to Bebe's search, but more of a secondary searcher.
Modified: It's extremely luck based, and cards like that, I'm not a big fan of. However, since it becomes more likely you will get 1 or more Pokémon in the 5 cards for decks with a larger number of Pokémon, it's worth a try in those decks, though any deck with 20 or less Pokémon should avoid it in my opinion. 2/5
Limited: A high proportion of your deck here is likely to be Pokémon, so you should get a couple of Pokémon with every use of Poké Radar. Also, since it's a Pokémon searcher here, it's going to be very useful. Still, it's luck based effect can be disappointing sometimes. 3.75/5
Todays card of the day is pokeradar as popular trainer card from Legends Awaikned. This card lets you reveal the top 5 cards of your deck and take all pokemon you find there. Wow i see why this card sees play in so many decks. Pokeradar gives you a way to get so many pokemon in a single turn and the best part is that its not a supporter card. Now lets talk combos you can use this card to its full potential when you play it in a deck that needs to evolve quicker such as Luxray/Electrivire or Torterra/Sceptile whose game winning attacks come from stage two pokemon so use pokeradar to thin out your deck and evolve quicker and dont forget to get a claydol out as quickly as possible. In conclusion pokeradar will and is going to see more play in the next few decks that will take the format by storm.

Modified: 4.5/5- free pokemon and whats not to love about that
