Vanillish (Dark Explorers)

Today’s card is another one of those evolving Stage 1’s that appear in the set without their final evolution. Again, this is a big clue that the card originated in a Japanese theme deck and is very likely to be filler.

Vanillish has a lower-than-average 70 HP, which puts it at a disadvantage from the start. The Metal Weakness is virtually irrelevant, and the Retreat Cost of one decent. Not much else to say, really.

Triple Spin is Vanillish’s first attack. It’s well-priced at one Water Energy and has the potential to do some reasonable damage by flipping three coins and inflicting 20 for each heads. Yes, it can fail miserably, and no, it isn’t something you would be using in an ideal situation, but for the cost it’s really not that bad. It is certainly more interesting than Frost Breath, which is just a vanilla 50 for [W][C][C] attack.

If you’re playing Vanilluxe (and why not, it’s hilarious), then you should just stick with the one from Noble Victories. It has more HP and can start the process of Paralyzing the Defending Pokémon which, of course, is the whole point of the deck.

Limited: 2.25 (usable cheap damage)
