 San Bernardino,

Aloha people of the poke-palace of Pojo, and welcome to a-whole-nother review. Today's card is one you've probably seen played if you have been......well, alive hahaha. It's the A-Z Elf, Azelf, and he's all about willpower. Specifically, the power to say "GIVE ME THAT LV.X IN MY PRIZES ARRRRGH!!! WHY DOES THAT ALWAYS HAPPEN TO ME!?". So, let's get right into this piece of Lake Trio!


Basic Pokemon: Azelf being a basic is actually a very great blessing from the Poke-Gods. To all you people that tech the one or two of these guys, imagine if you had to evolve to get it's ability, or had to LV. X it. It would be slow, and particularly sucky. It reminds me of the old Holon Persian. If you could have gotten the ability to search out any card in your deck and put it in your hand by just playing the Meowth, I think every deck would've run at least three of that. But with the Evolution requirement, the card was forgotten form competitive play. But, Azelf does still have the downfall that all non-attacking basics or energy hog basics have: the "I HAVE to start with this" syndrome. With Azelf it hurts even more since the ONLY way to get it's ability is by playing it from the hand. Having to start with this, and then having the only way to try and use it's power is a Super Scoop Up, is a pretty bad drawback.


Time Walk: Quite simply, one of the best Poke-Powers ever concieved. No other pokemon does what Azelf does as fast as it does, or as efficiently. It is one of the best early game cards ever, and can totally turn a match from a desperate, throw everything ya got and hope that's enough battle to a proficient killfest you're opponent was lucky he got out of all right smashfest. I know I'm being pretty dramatic here, but all of this praise IS warranted. When you play that first Roseanne's or Bebe's Search, and realize all your Magmortar/Leafeon/Darkrai/Garchomp/Torterra/Any Lake Trio LV. Xs or teched Milotic/Unown G/Mr. Mime/Mawile/Bastiodon/Mightyena/Groudon have been prized, you'll be happy to know you can search out your Azelf, and change the game. This ability will probably NOT be as necessary as I'm making it sound here every game, but their WILL be games where it is the life saver. It's ahrd to search through prizes when the card that GETS your prizes IS your prizes.


Lock Up: PHEW! Haha that was alot..this attack..not so much. You'll rarely use it, even if you play REAL psychic (not just multis). It CAN score an early KO on a low hp or Psychic weak pokemon with some Pluspowers or Lake Boundary. BUT not very likely. On this card it doesn't have to be special, it can ride on the coattails of Time Walk hahaha.


Weakness: Not really worth pointing out you don't want it active anyway and if it is the HP won't keep it alive past one turn against the T2 beasts.


Retreat Cost: Light and small. So good, though still would rather Warp.


Combos: Well, it IS AMU, but this card can be used successfully in ANYTHING. Use it in decks with LV. X to find your evolutions reliably, use it in decks with that third tech line or other teched Pokemon to make SURE they appear when needed....use it in Kricketune/Beedrill to get the fourth friggin 'Tot/'Drill in play haha. Basically, this card is one of those pieces of utility where I would say the benefits of having it far out weigh the risks.



Modified: 4.5/5 This card can fit into ANY deck it has so many uses it would be 5/5 if you didn't have to put another card into your prizes hahaha


Limited: 4.5/5 Still just as good as here you won't have very thick evolutionary lines so you're one Stage 2 could get prized or even an important basic


I figure if I don't put my email down here on any review now, people will think I'm sick or something haha. Send ALL positive remarks to Summonerofillusions@yahoo.com, and send all hate mail to yourself, ya jerks. 
Welcome everyone to another of Ghost pokemon master's pokemon card of the day today's card is Azelf from Legends awakened. Let's start today's review with Azelfs poke-power time walk on the turn you play Azelf from your hand to your bench you can use time walk which allows you to look at all of your prize cards and find a pokemon there and replace it with a card from your hand wow what a great power. Now onto Azelf's attack lock up which does 20 damage and the defending pokemon can't retreat only for one psychic energy. His stats are 70HP, one retreat cost, and a plus 20 weakness to psychic This card is amazing it is great as tech or you can utilize this Azelf in A/M/U. Overall this card will see allot of play in the current format so expect to see many more of those A/M/U decks being played in the upcoming battle roads.

Modified: 4 out of 5 watch out for psychic decks they could be a problem with Azelf

Limited: 4.5 out of 5 a great card here with so much potential

Art: 4 out of 5
