    What about this card and his Pokebody?

    PINSIR [70 HP] (Basic Grass Pokemon)
    [BODY] Wimp Shield
    If an attack from a Basic Pokemon does damage to Pinsir, that attack
    does 30 less damage (after applying Weakness and Resistance).
    [GC] Sonic Boom (30)
    Don't apply Weakness or Resistance for this attack.
    WEAKNESS: FIRE
    RETREAT: C

    I think it's a great basic pokemon to stall..... Some problems against fire.....

    IMO, the card is a great opener in Modified, doing 30 damage turn 2 while taking virtually nothing on the first couple of turns.

    I think this thing will be solid, if not STAPLE material in Shedinja decks. This thing can massacre just about any little basic (shed's only weakness), and even some of the big ones (ie Wobbuffet). Great starting card that highly benefits grass.
