The Saga of Sets: Part 2/9 (Jungle)
here we dig into the Jungle! This set was a surprise to
all pokemon players… and to the world of TCG’s.
Usually, you’ll find out if a TCG is successful if it
has an expansion. This one did, meaning it would become
great. This is when the majority of players entered the
scene. Jungle was a comparably small set, but had a huge
effect on the game.
here we go… The Saga of Sets: Part 2/9 Jungle (no colors
this time ¬_¬)
1/64 – This guy is a hitter. Ash2000, a person from
online, makes great use of this. In a 4/4 ER/SER with
electabuzz, and scyther, this guy is a CHAMP. I have a lot
of problems with that deck of his…
2/64 – Um… Base 0wnz this one by FAR. Don’t see any
3/64 – Nice actually, a rare low retreat fire pokemon.
Didn’t see a LOT of play, but was used. Flamethrower was
quite economical at the time.
4/64 – Love that Pin Missile! This guy was used… a
lot. You’d see him with Scyther and Electabuzz to form a
5/64 – Fetch is very nice… the ultimate staller of the
Mime 6/64 – Blastoise just died. This guy was elite…
used in a lot of anti evolution decks… became a popular
7/64 – Boyfriends is just flat out odd… and mega punch
is expensive. Thanks, but no thanks.
8/64 – Oh sure, it can win the game with hurricane, but
are you willing to go through pidgey and pidgeotto to do
9/64 – Nice card. Used as a solid basic in many grass
10/64 – What can we say about this? At the time, the
most versatile card out. Period.
11/64 – Well, this guy tries to be like scyther, only he
weighs about 900 more pounds. A 4 retreat makes this guy
not look adorable.
12/64 – Nice, but too slow for a raindance.
13/64 – The randomness of this card has many
possibilities… and was a nice card to use in grass.
Grass sure saw a lot from this set.
14/64 – And this wasn’t what it saw. Ew… possibly
the worst stage 2 EVER to exist. Ick, I can’t look at
that ANY more.
15/64 – Decent, but chancy. Personally, I think Nidoking
is a better stage 2.
16/64 – A revolutionary. This set formed the Wigglymaker,
which dominated standard until Neo Genesis came out.
same cards as 1-16)
33/64 – Decent, but the 70 hp and the high cost for mega
drain steered many people away.
34/64 – Nice… helps lower retreat, and rage isn’t
35/64 – This guy, is unbelievable. Throw on the energy
and watch your opponent cry…
36/64 – Nice anti-hitmonchan, but that’s why you play
37/64 – Status effects are good, which makes this card
38/64 – Great staller, like Kanghaskhan. Tongue wrap is
39/64 – Nice fighting pokemon… but call for friend for
3 energy o_O That is odd…
40/64 – Decent pokemon… decent evolution… but bland.
41/64 – Decent, yet bland. Spore is sick though…
42/64 – Nice pokemon. An anti-Promo Mewtwo. If Meowth
was a bit better, it would’ve been extremely popular.
43/64 – This is nice… I still see decks made around
this at League. Primeape with Miracle Berry is very good.
44/64 – Flat out good. Agility is 0wnage, and stomp is
45/64 – Nice pokemon… but not worth evolving.
46/64 – Ok… that’s just not even funny. Only good
for teaching the game.
47/64 – An ultimate no-rares tourney candidate. One of
the solidest colorless basics IN no-rare tourneys.
48/64 – Looks to me like a seaking.
49/64 – Ok, DUDE! Who did that? That’s SICK. I’d
play base GASTLY over THAT! =/
50/64 – Nice basic to a nice evolution. Anti-Buzz.
51/64 – Nice basic to get to the 3 eons. Commonly played
at the time.
52/64 – Decent… a Jigglypuff that takes colored
53/64 – The famous quote from Scott Gerhardt says it
all. “Magikarp, with looks.”
54/64 – Great anti- Mr. Mime. And also a great pokemon.
55/64 – Although peek is comical, this pokemon is NOT
good. Evolution ONLY.
56/64 – 2 for 10? And a chance to draw a card? Sorry,
I’ll just play Kanghaskhan.
Female 57/64 – Very solid grass basic.
58/64 – Nice staller, but for what reason? Personally,
Vileplume isn’t all it was cracked up to be.
59/64 – What is up with these guys and spore? Geez…
who’s going to play 2 grass for sleep? =/
60/64 – A decent pikachu, and one that would be played
until the movie promo comes out a few weeks later… with
61/64 – Decent staller.
62/64 – Well… it doesn’t look like much, and it
63/64 – An evolution to a powerful stage 1. Venomoth is
worth this lowlife.
64/64 – Flip a coin to search your deck? Um… nice…
but just computer search, or oak, or pokemon trader.
was the Jungle set… pretty tiring to review since its
1:45 AM… ¬_¬ Happy New Year’s EVERYONE! May you have
a great 2002! I’m sure I will ^_^
