Pelipper Lv 49


Hello and welcome to a very short week of Pojo’s CotD before we take a Christmas break.


Sorry, but I can’t find any kind of link between Christmas and today’s card, so I guess I had better review it in my normal way.


Pelipper is a Stage 1 with a lacklustre 90 HP, the worst Weakness in the game (Luxray . . . ummm, I mean Lightning), and a better-than-nothing Resistance to Fighting. It also has a Retreat cost of two. Seriously, why? No Flying Pokémon should have a Retreat cost of two: it doesn’t make any sense, and it certainly doesn’t help this card’s playability.


The first attack, Water Ball, does 20 for [C], plus another 10 for each Water Energy you attach to it. Unlike most of the ’10 more for each Energy’ attacks, there is no limit, so in theory you could boost Pelipper’s attack to massive levels. Not that you would want to, and even if you did, Pelipper wouldn’t survive long enough to use it.


Wing Attack is your other option with this card, and is a vanilla 60 for three Energy attack. Not much to say about that, except that it just isn’t good enough in a format where the likes of Kingdra, Gyarados, and Beedrill can do so much more damage for a lot less Energy.


Pelipper is one of those ‘filler’ cards that you get far too many of in every set. Its poor attacks, low HP, lack of a PokePower, or any kind of advantage-creating effect render it completely useless in a competitive environment. Worse still, it doesn’t even have any cool or interesting tricks that make it worth running in a fun deck.


A bit of a waste, really.

Limited: 1.5 (you might have to use it if you don’t get anything better)



Hey everyone! Today's card of the day is Pelipper from the Arceus set. Pelipper has 90 hp, weakness to electric, and resistance to fighting. The lightening weakness hurts....a lot. the first attack does 20 plus 10 for each water energy attached to Pelipper for only one energy. This is his best attack in my opinion, and may combo with some of the new cards coming out in hear gold and soul silver, but there will be better options. The second attack does 60 damage for a water and 2 colorless energies. It seems a bit to bland and normal to me, for it to see any serious play. However, it did place 2nd in my local booster draft!!

Modified: 1.5/5
Limited: 3/5 ..... It did finish 2nd in my local prerelease soooooo I guess I need to give it some props :)
