Finally, the Hedgehog!!!


I keep waiting for this thing to evolve into Sonic and go get me some Gold Rings…but I digress….


Little Grass monster that looks pretty good as a starter.  70 HP, weakness to fire, which is still a weak type (sorry Infernape, you are a fighting type in my eyes now..and the Kingdras and Empoleons and other water monsters being released will still keep the heat DOWN).  Resistance to water = good.


1 Retreat cost, most likely will not be used, because you are active to first and foremost LEVEL UP to Shaymin Level X (one of them, who KNOWS what we are getting!!!)


The attacks are decent.  1 for 10 remove damage and auto sleep.  Can be very useful at several stages of the game.


Then the 2 for 30, or 80 if affected by a special condition gets me dashing to the binder to find out how I can affect you with a special condition during the turn, when I don’t have to count on 2 sleep tails.  Gliscor Level X, I am looking at you.  Any of those “strikeback” Pokemon (if you hit me, I burn or poison you) will work too.  80 for 2 is great at ANY point in the game.  Especially for a basic. 


My goodness, a “legendary” or “special” Pokemon with real power.  Finally Mewtwo and Palkia have a friend in this!




Modified…hard to tell as of yet, but I am going out on a limb here.  This card WILL be played (reserve right to change when other Shaymins are released).  Will go 4/5 here.


Limited….I like it…a lot…going to go 4.5/5 here.


Thanks and enjoy the new pokemon……


See you all at My Prereleases, starting with Gamenite in South County Mall in St. Louis Missouri on Saturday January 31st!!  Truly be the FIRST to own these cards.  www.mopokemon.com for all Missouri area Pokemon events!!!

Octillery49 Shaymin has only one purpose. To level up. Shaymin in and of itself isn't very good, but Shaymin Lv.X is a great card in Torterra and other grass decks. Sooooo I'll give it a 1/5 without the level X 4/5 with the X.
