    Let's see. St1 and 200 HP? Healing body? Can still do 60 damage? That's Wailord GE, one of the best cards in the modifield. It take down even GG because Holon Energy WP say that Gallade can't do 150 damage with Sonic Blade. Also there is Xatu SW for take out sleep if it stays 2 times and heal me 2 damages. Also Leftovers is good with Wailord, it can heal Wailord like a 4-5 Times and that's much. Cresselia Lv.X is also good with Wailord beacuse it heals Wailord with 1 Damage every turn and put it to any of my opponent's pokemon. OK, now we all think that Wailord is broken but it's very hard to get work. Last week-end i was doing 4-1 with it by losting only Tangorowth/Sceptile (have resistance and can heal 4 dmages....) But with me they only drawed only 6 Prizes against me, but i lost top 8 game because he taked out my only basik firs time, then i win him (Blissey) 6-0 and lost again by T2.

    Yes, it is broken.

    It is broken because it fell off of the china hutch. Now it's on the ground, all broken and stuff.

    If you think wailord is broken because it has 200HP and can do 60 damage you're mad. 60 damage is a very low amount of damage and most pokemon can 2HKO wailord. Also wailord is slow.

    Wailord is bad. I played a Wailord deck and its really slow. Furthermore u need many energys. If ur wailord deck is broken, pls post the deck list.

    Aside from Gallade and some Electrics, which Pokemon are you referring to?

    Still, it isn't broken or anything. Its just an OK card, nothing more, nothing less.

    Unown G over holon WP because the energy is tight. Personally, I think it could work with damage spread/scramble/cessation and something like Gorebyss but decks that turn out "messy" tend to lose to consistent builds of archetypes.

    I'd like to play Lucario/Gorebyss/Wailord/tech but I'd rather win. *Sigh at metagame*.

    It is the only wall, in my eyes, that works good enough in this format. Since many people don't play electric, it is the perfect contender. It can last at the most 6 turns, and thats great for a wall and staller. Great Tech.

    This card is broken so bad that its funny =]

    No...Wailord fell on the china hutch. And because he fell, the house is now broken as well.

    Now that is what I call broken.

    I've been messing around with Wailord for a couple weeks. It has a lot of untapped potential.

    I didn't see any wailords in t- 8 of ANY age groups at either of the states I attended.

    Nuff' said.

    It's not broken. Let's see...

    The attack is horrible. Don't try to win that one. 60 for 4 Energy is baaaaaaaad. Scramble only works when you're behind on Prizes, and you do NOT want to be behind on Prizes with Wailord, as they are hard to get back.

    HP is amazing, but... it really only three shots things, and they three shot you. So, your huge wall dies. Don't get me wrong, the Wale's HP is very near broken, if not broken, but the attack balances it out.

    The Weakness isn't that bad. Yes, pretty much any Electric-type can OHKO it, but... who's going to play Lightning with Gallade so big? Answer: No one.

    The Retreat Cost is just sad. He's going to be stuck in the Active position until he gets KOed unless your opponent Sonic Blades or you WP with Psychic, but... Sonic Blade kills you, and Psychic + WP is 5 Energy there.

    The Body is pretty good with the HP and side effect of the attack. You can remove the damage any time between turns, so that meens you can do it before Sleep Check. With Dawn Stadium, Leftovers, and this you can remove 3+ Damage Counters between turns!

    Finally, the typing is good. Magmortar has Weakness to it, which never goes amiss. Lightning isn't played much due to Gallade. So, Water is a good type.

    In short: Wailord is bad.

    wait wait wait guys, hold on a sec' this isn't a bad card. if you had Lake Boundry you can OHKO a Magmortar and with WP you can resist Sonic Blade. You'll just need something to boost some energys on him somehow............. but how...........

    I saw a few wailord decks in masters here at florida. The deck was a no energy deck. really nice concept but I dont think the time is right. still they went 4-3 so it can't be to bad.

    They killed only 2 Wailords in 5 games, they took only 6 prizes on a 5 games.... Still i lost 2 times in the top 8 because he killed my only basik and i couldn't have a new one. I won T2 Tune 6-2, Blissey 6-0 and 6-0, Magmortar/Infernape/Blissey i get 3-0 and Empoleon/Medicham i get 6-2 you say that 60-50 isn't much?

    Its so broken, it never get out of the card binder. It was stuck in the page or in the card box.

    Personally, I like Wailord. It's a great wall and gives me time to setup. The damage it deals out isn't that great considering you need 4 Energy to use it, but I guess it's somewhat balanced out due to it's effect and Poke Body.

    I like it's HP and the fact it's Stage 1, too.

    Besides from being a tank, I have no other serious use for it, lol.
