Top10 Modified Pokemon

December 12, 2006

        Focusing only on basic Pokemon & evolutions, these are the strongest cards in modified at the moment.  If you've played in any City Championships, these cards won't be a surprise to you.

#10 Latios* (Deoxys)

Working great in decks that can get multiple energy in play (to power it up quickly), Latios* one hit KOs almost everyone of the many Stage2's in modified.

#9 Arcanine ex (Legend Maker)

With 120 HP, a great Poke-Body, and great attacks, Arcanine ex is one of the hardest Stage1's to deal with in modified.  It's only downside is the large amount of energy you are forced to commit to it, and you often end up unable to build a back-up attacker.

#8 Holon's Magneton/Holon's Electrode (Delta Species)

The ability to use Celio's Network or Professor Elm's Training Method to get an energy will help you when you are in energy trouble.  In addition, the fact that it provides two of anything lets it fit nicely in almost any deck.

#7 Houndoom (Unseen Forces)

Houndoom allows you to control what stadium plays in stay, and also limits your opponents' options.  Although Houndoom can fit into more decks than our #6 card, your opponent will usually end up being able to play trainers after a few knockouts.
#6 Manectric ex (Deoxys)

The speed of a Stage1 allows Disconnect to be a very disruptive attack.  The ability to quickly stop your opponent from playing Rare Candy, and numerous other trainers, while controlling which stadium stays in play will give you a winning advantage in numerous matches.
#5 Dragonite d (Delta Species)

Dragonite d fits into the Holon Engine and has great synergy with Metagross d.  Although not used primarily as an attacker, Dragonite d can allow you to use attacks that require discarding of energy, namely Metagross d's Crush and Burn.
#4 Metagross d (Delta Species)

Working best with Dragonite d, Metagross d also gains power from having another playable Metagross to accompany it.  Delta Control helps Stage2 decks get set up, and although its attack is nothing special, it can be made strong when used in combination with Dragonite d and Metagross DX.

#3 Banette ex (Legend Maker)

The speed of Banette ex can put any deck in trouble fast.  It's power can help you get a fast knock out on a 50 HP basic, and is also useful for weakening higher HP Pokemon that Shadow Chant would be short of knocking out.   Having a weakness to dark is one of the best weaknesses to have, as most dark Pokemon in modified rotated out.

#2 Raichu d (Holon Phantoms)

Also evolving from a delta basic, Raichu d has the advantage of fitting into a Holon Engine and works great with Scramble Energy.  Zzzap hits about half of the cards that do well in modified.

#1 Holon's Castform (Holon Phantoms)

Not only an amazing energy that can be retrieved with Holon Mentor and any various other supporters, Holon's Castform works perfectly with decks focused on Delta Pokemon.  Without Holon's Castform, decks like Metanite, Delta, and more would struggle to setup.
