Arceus LV X (Meteor Blast)

This Arceus is SO similar to yesterday’s that I am going to cut and paste the relevant section from that review, instead of thinking up ways to re-write it (sorry, I’m lazy like that)

All Arceus LV X has the same basic stats. A solid 120 HP, a decent Retreat cost, no Resistance, and no Weakness. That last point is the crucial one. Being able to remove the Weakness of any Basic Arceus by Levelling Up is a fantastic ability.

This Arceus also has the Multitype PokeBody, meaning that it becomes the same type as the Basic Arceus from which it Levels Up. This is another key feature of the deck, as you use it to try and ensure that you always hit your opponent for Weakness.

OK, now we can look at the unique feature of this card: its attack. Meteor Blast does a very nice 100 damage for [G][R][C]. As with yesterday’s card, the weird Energy requirements shouldn’t phase an Arceus deck running multiple Energy types and Ultimate Zone. Also like yesterday’s card, there is a price to pay for such a powerful attack. This time it isn’t a discard . . . it is the dreaded coin flip! Flip tails and you are looking at doing a mere 50 damage . . . not good.

No good because, let’s face it, either you need that 100 base damage or you don’t. If you don’t, then Omniscient Arceus has many ways of hitting for 50+ by using the attack of a Fire, Water, or Fighting type Arceus in play. If you really do need the 100 damage, do you really want to trust to a coin flip to get it done? Of course you don’t. A coin coming up tails could cost you a game in that situation.

Maybe if you are running some kind of weird deck using Arceus as a tech and focussing on the Fire and Grass types, you could find a place for this in your list. Otherwise, you would be much better off sticking with the other two Arceus LV X.


Modified (Arceus deck): 1.5 (yes, this is the rubbish one)
Limited: 3 (50 or 100 . . . it’s all good here)


Another Arceus X! Its a good day in the pokemon world! See yesterday's review for basic information on the Arceus deck itself. This Arceus Lv. X is actually not as good as yesterdays (in my opinion). I really do not like the coin flips chance at only doing 50 damage (but some of you might not like the loss of two energy cards to attack, as was the case with yesterday's Arceus). It really is a matter of preference if we compare today's Arceus with yesterday's. Personally, I'll say again, I do not believe more than one of either one belongs in any Arceus deck. The Omnicient/Multitype one belongs in the Arceus deck, and bout 3 of them belong in there. I say shy away from this X.
