Power: "Physical attack doing 13 power stages of damage. Masked.

Sigh. Silly card with extra happy bonus abilities that really
nothing to jump for joy over.
The attack is bland; there is much better out there. Masked could
throw an opponent for a loop. Focused is great but that only matters
if big damage or great secondary effects are in play, neither which
is true (any more). Train an Ability, great, but I haven’t been won
over by Ability training, at least in Black.
You’re much better off, IMO, running a better Masked attack with a

Black Energy Drain
Physical attack doing 13 power stages of damage. Masked. Focused.
Train an ability.
Okay, I chose this card as just some random card from LES.
Basically, it's beatdown. Train an ability is nice and all that, but
Black doesn't have that many abilities. Focused means it stands a
better chance of hitting. 13 power stages is a lot to take. And
last, but not least, it is masked meaning that you can laugh when
your opponent throws that omni-block just to have it shoved right
back into their face because it is focused. So, what's the downsides
to it. Lots. There are plenty of better cards to pick over this one,
unless you're going for straight beatdown. It's a nice card, but
don't hurt yourself trying to fit it into your deck. This is really
a better card for players on a budget, as it provides nice damage
and some support, and is relativly easy to find. You can combo this
with Ledgic, Oceanous, or Black Concealed Mastery for some
additional bonuses. Other than that, it's not great. It's not broke.
But it can get the job done, depending on your deck.
Expanded: 2.5/5 (Read the review)
Focused: 3/5 (Less decent attacks, so do keep this in mind when
building a focused deck)
Sealed: 5/5 (It's an attack. It's beefy. It's... just run it)
Ok guys, I got to be honest. I
don t know too much about this card, so if my review is bad, I m
sorry. But lets see what I can do For starters, it s Masked.
Focused. It also trains Ability. So that s pretty good. One thing I
do understand about this card, is that it does 13 Power Stages of
damage, so that can go either way. If its Goku at a high power
level, like SS4, he ll just get it all back, so its worthless on
him. If used on a lower level guy, he or she won t get it back as
fast, and some good chances to inflict damage.
