OK, this card stinks…HEHEHE I am so funny!!

This card is designed for the SP variant that uses Mightyena Platinum – that allows it to attack for like 80 for 0 if it is affected by a special condition. Other than that, it can be used to frustrate an opponent who is not playing an SP deck.

80 HP basic with 2 retreat and a weakness to fighting. Little high on the retreat, but moonlight stadium fixes that nicely.

The attack, 20 for 2 with a smokescreen, which of course can be brought to 20 for 1 with energy gain…but that is not why the card is used.

The power – if you have a Stadium Card in play (you must control the stadium, it can’t be your opponent’s stadium) then each active non-SP pokemon is Poisoned! Not bad, not bad at all.

As for the attack, and the rest, KEEP HIM ON THE BENCH if at all possible.

Ratings – Modified 3.5/5 Not a bad card. With a 1 retreat cost I would have gone to a 4 with him.

Limited – 3/5 Nothing real special here.
Pokmeman Skuntank G Lv. 46

Skuntank will likely not fit in well with normal decks, but as with Crobat G, it works much decently in a Galactic Based deck. It's power doesn't poison G Pokemon, and it allows for more damage to be done, which is something that Galactic decks currently struggle with.

Honchkrow G can easily obtain the stadium(s) with its first attack. Snowpoint Temple and Galactic HQ spring to mind, and Moonlight Stadium also helps.
One of the best cards to combine Skuntank with is Mightyena found in Platinum, because when it is affected by a special condition, it can attack for no energy, allowing Galactic decks to deal an easy 90 damage, which would be difficult otherwise.

It can work with a number of different things, so it deserves a better than average mark.
3.5/5 Modified.

Poison can really hurt in Limited. But with all the G Pokemon running around, it likely won't be able to do too much, and it's attack is really not very good, despite it's colourless requirements.
2/5 Limited.
