Beheeyem (Next Destinies)

Who says Pokémon are running out of ideas when it comes to naming new Pocket Monsters? Not me. Beheeyem (for B.E.M. – Bug-Eyed Monster) is a lot more imaginative than ‘Geodude’, that’s for sure.

The card is pretty interesting too. Yeah it’s a low HP Stage 1 (with a nice Call for Family Basic though), and yes, Psychic Weakness does put a big fat Mewtwo-shaped target on its back. The single Retreat cost is ok though . . . I guess.

What makes Beheeyem interesting certainly isn’t its second attack. Psybeam is poor value at [P][C][C] for 40 damage and Confusion (the weakest of the Status Conditions) and will almost never be used, it’s a bit of a filler attack to be honest. Nope, the thing that grabs our attention is Brain Control which, for a single Psychic Energy gives you a look at your opponent’s hand. Then you get to choose a card from there and put it on the bottom of their deck.

By itself, it gives you a potential heads up on your opponent’s strategy and causes them some mild annoyance. In conjunction with other hand disruption cards though, such as Weavile UD, N, Judge, and Team Rocket’s Trickery . . . well, you could have some fun. Nothing competitive exactly, but maybe a deck you could amuse yourself with at League by trying out a different strategy. Not every card in a set can be a Mewtwo-style format breaker. Beheeyem offers something outside the face-smashing norm of the format, and for that reason, even though I would never take it to a tournament, I quite like it.

Rating

Modified: 2 (different enough to justify its existence)

Limited: 2 (eh, you’re better off just attacking. Your opponent will likely just play anything worthwhile straight away)
