Back to the main COTD Page

Arrrggghh.. I missed Thursday’s Energy Gain. Good trainer, but today, we have an interesting Trainer. Level Max

Trainer Card – Not supporter, so good.

On a flip of heads, you search your deck for a Level X Pokemon, and level up one of your pokemon (even on the bench), which is very good.

This would have been a MUCH Better card if they would have made it a supporter and taken the coin flip AWAY.

FLIP A COIN = in most EVERY instance a card that is just not good.

The risk reward has to be very in favor of the card.

Will I try this to level up my Shaymins, and Dialga Gs? Yeah.

Will I probably toss it away after it misses when I really need it to hit. Absolutely.


Modified…I give it a half – 2.5 out of 5

Limited…Not enough potential here to draft the Level X AND the prevolution, so 1 out of 5

Winner of a Stormfront Prerelease
Level Max (PL107)

Level Max is the only way to Level Up Pokemon on your bench, rather then evolving them as your active. Unfortunately, it recquires a coin flip, and some people, like me, suck when it comes to flipping heads. Regardless, if you can get it to work, it bypasses the rule that you can't level up on the turn you evolve. I'm pretty balanced about this card. On one hand, I hate it when you have to flip for something. On the other hand, this card is so powerful it just needed a cap like the flip. Nyeh, anyway, all decks with Level X's as support Pokemon, i.e. Uxie Lv. X, Dialga G Lv. X, ect, should run at least one of this card, so you don't have to risk your Pokemon in the fighting.

Modified 4/5
I personally prefer Premier Ball, but this card is too good now that Dialga G is running around everywhere.
Limited 3/5

If you're lucky enough to get a Level x and it's basic form, then use this card, especially Giratina Lv. X, or Shaymin (Land) Lv. X, or other support Level X's.

COTD – Level Max

Alright guys. Sorry for taking the week-long hiatus but it seems as if school is wanting me to fail just for the fun of it. Anyway, I have some free time on this most lovely of Valentine’s Days (all love mail can be forwarded to my email account) so I’m gonna try to nail out some reviews. It looks like today’s COTD is Level Maxfrom Platinum, a card that can possibly make a lot of decks better.

OK – so Level Max essentially says that if you flip a coin and get heads you can level up any of your Pokemon. Pretty good, right? Well, if it weren’t for that flip I’d say this card was extremely broken. However, the flip definitely counterbalances its potency. I definitely think this card has some potential, but the inconsistency with the flip makes me kind of shrug my shoulders. I mean, instead of playing 4 of these you can just play some more Bebe’s/Roseanne’s and a few more Switch and you’re good to go. This card does accomplish a Bebe’s AND a Switch in one swift move, but the coin flip makes it kind of useless. I guess you can say that I really don’t like cards that needed coin flips to work. If you’re playing like 4-5 Lv.X’s this might be a good route to go with, but if not then I would just invest in a Switch or two more.

Modified – 3/5 (Personal choice here)
Limited – 5/5 (Ifyou get the LVX of course)
