It’s okay with Misdreavus · Neo Revelation (N3) #11, I guess…
Having the picture be a Snorlax is so stereotypical.
Well…it’s still a damn sight better than most of the other secret machines.
Team Rocket needs to get some new Secret Machines.
I’m sure they’ve made several others. They’ve just been keeping them even secreter than the last ones.
That’s a good idea, their opponents have started to drink more coffee.
I’m just sitting here mashing the right arrow key. Almost everything is better than this card. I might stop when I see Minion of Team Rocket · Gym Heroes (G1) #113 or Thought Wave Machine · Neo Destiny (N4) #96.
Well, I’d rather use this than Gastly · Base Set (BS) #50, that’s for sure
A tails fails card that technically only has a 25% chance of working? Please get this card away from all competitive decks in existence.
To be fair, there are some attacks that only work (or only work to their full potential ) against opponents who are afflicted with special conditions. If you were running a deck full of those creatures, it would actually get that desired effect about half the time.
For some reason I did about 40 impressions just to change this card’s rating to 10.47%. Don’t ask me why, but don’t change it.
someone did impressions -_-
As they should!
I use it in a deck with Ninetales · Dragons Exalted (DRX) #19. Flip a coin if heads do 50 more damage is ok. Generally quite bad but any special condition-centric deck can make use of it.
As for other Rocket’s secret machines, Pow! Hand Extension · Team Rocket Returns (TR) #85 is decent to squeeze another Catcher in your deck.
I’d just like to point out that this has been strictly outperformed by Hypnotoxic Laser · Plasma Storm (PLS) #123.
Ten guesses what its effect is.
If you guessed that the poison was reliant on the coin flip,you guessed wrong
Hmm… I may give that card a little testing. I’ve been using Amoonguss · Next Destinies (NXD) #9 for poison shenanigans, but this card suits my needs just as well.
Tokiwa City Smuggle
Sure a card that may give you a 50% chance of putting your opponent’s active Pokemon to sleep, but it doesn’t end your turn since sleep effects could only be tiggered by attacks back then.
