Back to the main COTD Page

OK, here is another Platinum Card that has gotten a LOT of hype. For good reason.

130 HP Stage 2. Not bad, not great. 2 Retreat cost for an Amphy is not very good.

Weakness to Fighting in getting better EVERY day, resistance to metal is almost meaningless.

(Oh, I am sorry, Dialga G will now hit you for 0)

The money here is on the Pokebody. No powers for anything with a damage counter on it! WOW!

This can be shut down with a Dialga G Level X, but not much more.

This body can be game changing, devastating.

The attacks, well, the attacks may be the BEST attacks ever seen on an Amphy.

2 for 30, flip if heads, 60, if tails, paralyze! WOW! No downside here!

3 for 70 and move an energy to the bench! No real downside there! Swarm away!

There has to be a combo for this card. HAS TO.

I am just thinking out loud here. Amphy.Manectric works well on a lot of levels.

Amphy/Empoleon for the damage spread? Amphy.Palkia G for the same?

Amphy/Crobat G? Pick the victim and no powers…

Lots of options.

Ratings…Modified 4.2 I like this, and need to work with it more.

Limited…2.5/5 Not like as much, too hard to get out.


Hey everyone! Eevee here once again to review one of my favorite pokemon! (You know, I say that about pretty much every pokemon we review. ^^') Anyway, today's card is Ampharos (PL-1/127) I hope this pokemon can help recharge our hopes for States after yesterday's Dustox disaster. ^^' Let's look at the stats.

Poke'Body: Damage Bind - Each Pokémon that has any damage counters on it (both yours and your opponent's) can't use any Poké-Powers.

(L)(C) Gigavolt - 30+ damage - Flip a coin. If heads, this attack does 30 damage plus 30 more damage. If tails, the Defending Pokémon is now Paralyzed.

(L)(C)(C) Reflect Energy - 70 damage - Move an Energy card attached to Ampharos to 1 of your Benched Pokémon

Type: Electric
HP: 130
Weakness: 30+ to fighting
Resistance: 20- to steel
Retreat: (C)(C)

OK, Now for the review. First of all it's stats. 130HP on a stage two is pretty much standard right now. Al tho, it sure would be nice if a stage 2 to could out max the basic Lv.X's we've been seeing. ^^' It's weakness should be ok as we don't see many fighting types. It's resistance is perfect considering those aggravating Steelix decks going round. Retreat could have been lower but just add in a few switch cards.

Attack wise the pokemon definitely beats yesterday's dutox. It's first attack is Gigavolt. Doing 30 with a possible of 60 or 30/paralyzing for only two energy is really good. It's second attack it Reflect energy. Doing 70 for three energy is pretty good in my opinion. Plus it's secondary effect would be great in charging up a bench.

In all I think this is a great card that would be worth adding to any electric deck! ^^

Modified: 4/5
Limited: 4/5
Octillery49 Ampharos is a card that has been hyped like crazy from this set. However, I've found that he's very much lacking in this format and his body is easily countered by Dialga G. However, power lock is still good and though there are better attackers, he's not completely awful.
