    Credit to secretsof2113 for finding this image, she's a little busy with other things to post at the moment, but.. is this what I think it is?

    Noone else has made a post regarding this yet, but apparently its part of the DP6 guidebook. Any ideas? I definitely don't think this is fake, either.

    Wow, a dark type that's weak to Psychic. Is there a translator in the house?

    It looks real but the weakness does not look right. Also isnt Drapeon a posion\bug type.

    the card is real

    and the main reason why its weak to psy is cause of poison type thus weak to psychic type

    Drapion is Poison/Dark, Skorupi is Poison/Bug.

    I think the strangest thing is that they've now picked a "regular" DP Pokemon. Most others have been legendaries, starters, or new evolutions of old things. Maybe now there will be Lv.X of some Pokémon like Luxray, Abomasnow, etc to go with it in the next set.

    Now my question is, why wasn't this really announced? Seemed really under the radar to me.

    Drapion LV.X - Darkness - HP130
    Level Up

    Poke-Power: Triple Poison
    You can use this Power once during your turn. Flip a coin, if heads 1 of your opponent's Active Pokemon is now Poisoned. In between turns, place 3 damage counters on the Poisoned Pokemon instead of 1. This Power can't be used if this Pokemon is affected by a Special Condition.

    [D][D][C][C] Snipe Tail: 40 damage. This attack also does 40 damage to 1 of your opponent's Benched Pokemon. The Defending Pokemon can't retreat during your opponent's next turn.

    Weakness: Psychic (x2)
    Resistance: none
    Retreat: 3

    Who cares? Drapion IFDS is plenty fast, and a Weavile SW combo is arguable. 80 and 40 snipe, plus no retreating? I'll take that.

    I think the reason why a lot of Dark pokemon don't end up with huge base damage anyway is the Special Dark/Darkrai factor. :p Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the biggest base damage output oany dark type right now Shiftry's Spirit Dance? Possible 90 for three if you get two heads.

    Anyway, I have no doubt that the card will see play, though a format domination is unlikely. Triple Poison and Weezings could hit you as high as 70 damage in Poison.

    I have to correct you. Charizard* does 200 damage.

    ooohhhh burnnnn...ooooooohhhh fire joke......

    Yeah, it's the same problem I'm running into with Tyranitar. Even with Weavile, it just takes too long, and late game, you can't rely on Weavile to power up brand new ones. Low energy attacks (like 1 or 2 energy) will just run rampant over big energy attacks.

    Does anyone know the name of the book it's in?(In Japanese) Or have a picture of the book? I was able to get the Visual Books with the cards for $10 each after shipping and I want to do it again.:biggrin:

    Skuntank is Poison/Dark too. He resists Psychic.

    Dark types are IMMUNE to Psychic. Meaning that even if their second type is weak to psychic, they are still immune. Drapion having a Psychic weakness makes no sense at all.

    Other than that, I like it. It goes well with the IFDS Drapion. And, remember people, it's a Lv. X. It can use it's non leveled up form's attacks. Yeah it's attack is hard to power, but it's non leveled up form has a free attack that can paralyze for stalling purposes, and a pretty good flippy second attack. That flippy Power really makes the card, though. It's worth using IMO. As The Supes said 80+40 snipe is nice, as is doing max 70 poison (though you'll probably realistically do 40-50, which is still amazing since it's FREE.)

    In the TCG cards are based on 1 of their types, not both. EG. The MT abomasnow is the grass type and the MD abomasnow is the ice type.
