    IMHO the following

    Item Finder
    Computer Search
    Plus Power
    Lass
    Misty's Wrath
    DCE
    Neo Genesis Cleffa

    There really is no true answer mainly because of formats for the game. However ScythKing made a good description for the Unlimited format. A card is only as good as the deck it is in.

    Now, what he's talking about are the 9 more expensive cards in the game. What you gave him were probably the 9 best cards in the game. I'm not sure what the Power 9 for Pokemon would be, but Base Charizard is probably one of them

    This came up on the old pokegym.. some topic that discussed most valuable cards. Most of the really rare ones I'd never even heard of!

    Ok, lets get a view ideas going here.

    For Unlimited, going by BEST and staples in every deck, we have...

    Professor Oak
    Computer Search
    Item Finder
    Lass
    Gust Of Wind
    Super Energy Removal
    Energy Removal
    Cleffa
    Town Volunteers???

    The last one iffy...those should be in a majority of ALL Unlimited decks. Yeah...ill be back later with better stuff as Im headed to a friends house -_-

    Sneasel for Pure Broken Damage, Slowking for One-sided Trainer Denial, Super Energy Removal for Energy Disruption, Computer Search for Deck Searching, Item Finder for Trainer Renewal, Gust of Wind for Pokemon Disruption, Town Volunteers for Discard Rescue, Tyrogue for Smash Punch fever, and Cleffa for Hand-Changing.

    Agree with dkates :thumb:

    Prof Oak for handchanging and SER for disruption.

    I disagree with saying sneasel is a power 9. Even though beat up has proved itself as one of the most formidable techniques in the TCG, i dont believe it is power 9.

    As I have been MIA, can somone please inform me wats so good about slowking?

    4 Slowking on opponent's bench. You play a Trainer card. Flip. Heads! Flip. Heads! Flip. Heads! Flip. AUGH!

    4 Slowking on your bench, none on opponent's. You play a Trainer card. No flips.

    Thought you would have known about Slowking -- it was Genesis. It and Sneasel were the only cards ever banned from Modified independently of their sets.

    Slowking is crazy from what I've heard. Once there's two or three out, it' should be just about over. Throw in a Chaos Gym in case they have some anti-power, and you should be good. I can see how Sneasel/Slowking came about. Anyway, what about the "rogue" 9 cards? There are so many overlooked cards that are crazy for the amount of play that they get...

    Power 9 Cards of Pokemon (English Edition)

    1st Edition Base Charizard
    1st Edition Base Blastoise
    1st Edition Shining Charizard
    1st Edition Neo Genesis Lugia
    1st Edition Neo Revelation Holofoil Ho-oh
    Crystal Charizard - Skyridge
    Crystal Lugia - Aquapolis
    Crystal Ho-oh - Skyridge
    Mewtwo EX - Ruby/Sapphire

    These are 9 cards I will always trade for that are the most valuable of the english edition cards...the big 9...

    There is, of course, the one card, the holy grail of all Pokemon collectors....

    Pre-release Raichu

    Yes, they do exist

    If you include Japanese cards, the list get much more complicated, but much more straightforward (Shinings and Winner Promos)

    Well then if im right, one muk can ruin a Sloking deck's day... or an aerodactle if played early enough.
    I can see why it was banned from modify, but sneasel... why sneasel?! just because hes powerful... and hes the base of my new deck which i think restricts me to unlimited... =\

    It can, but Chaos Gym helps against that...or you could just go incredibly rogue and run your own Aerodactyl after you get the Slowkings. The most feared of them all is Magby though...there's nothing to do but try to kill it. It really can't be avoided...
