Thread: Darkrai Lvl. X

  1. #1

    Darkrai Lvl. X

    Darkrai Lv.X HP 100

    Poke-Body: Dark Shadow - For each basic Darkness energy attached to your Darkness-type Pokemon, attacks do 10 more damage to the Defending Pokemon.

    [D][C][C] Eternal Darkness - 40 damage (the attack is too blurry to make out).

    Recently revealed by Pokebeach.com, this card looks AWESOME.

    What are peoples thoughts here?
    -Combos? I see Murkrows big dude, or sneasel being pretty awesome!
    -Too strong? Is that pokebody just TOO strong?
    -What effect it might have on the metagame?

    Discuss!

    Btw, if this is being discussed elsewhere, ignore this lol!

    i like that card so much but i want to know what his second attack effect is.

  3. #3
    This cards is seriously Broken. Honchcrow seems good with it to just give all the energies to Honchcrow and attack with Murkrow (With this you dont have to sacrifice losing Energies from getting knocked out) . It will have an effct on the metagame, especially with Castaway engines everywhere. It'll be kinda like Flygon ex d. Everyone thought is was game breaking but it'll die down after a while.

    Hmmm 2-2 or 3-1 is vulnerable to being prized, and it's slow, so I'm not quite as convinced personally. Oh and castaway allows cessation to run riot.

    As a level X, he won't be affected by latilock will he?

    I like this card a lot, especially since normal Darkrai will make a good basic.

    It seems ok,but I would just tech it in with Shift and call it a day.

    Honchrow/Darkrai Lvlx Question- Wil the extra damage apply if murkrow does the attack without the energy??

    I think its gona be huge. 2-2 is consistent enough to run, and with an energy accelerator to get those darks down.....

    [D][D][C] Eternal Darkness: 40 damage. The Defending Pokemon is now Asleep. In between turns, the opponent flips 2 coins, and the Pokemon doesn’t wake up unless both are heads. If both are tails, the Defending Pokemon is Knocked Out.

    thats its second attack.Can u say broken?? if two tails its is KOed,u can do 40 a big 140 and have a chance to Ko it without anything else,this card is good and I think will defin see play.

    I am actually thinking
    Weavile+Darkai Lv. X is pretty good, if anybody can come up w/ a decent energy accelerator.
    Honchcrow+Darkai Lv. X would also be pretty good, if I could memeber the attacks, lol.

    Weavile might as well say this attack does 20 damage times the number of Dark energy in play. That's pretty good. If you can maintain 5 energy on the field you will be doin 100 a turn. Not only that, but the deck can also abuse pluspowers and strength charms, as if it needs it/.

    BUT expect this to see play. Having basic energies w/ built in pluspowers is simply REALLY good. BUT energy acceleration is gonna be a problem. I don't know how we can speed up the process.
    NOW I am not gonna say anything is broken. Cause I member when we all thought the world was gonna end when Cessation Crystal and Shiftry ex came out, but both of those cards haven't even seen that much play.

    I REALLY do like this card though.

    Cess sees play all the time, its in Mario-Delta-Destiny-Super Stantler- 3/4 of those are archtypes. Shiftry did see play,but reduceds in popularity becuase of its weakness. Darkrai is broken,but NRG accel is the hard thing to figure out. I dont think it is or will be one when it is released.

    thats broken, but there is a weakness :

    to fully utilize the power of darkrai lv x, u get them out ASAP, and during early games, ur opponent will evolve! bb sleepy condition

    TBH, i dont think ud ever want to attack with darkrai! (lest it be KOd and you lose the amazingness that is its body!)

    I disagree with that statement quite vehemently! Chucks trees?

    I think Darkrai and Weavile could definitely be a force to be reckoned with- but as someone else mentioned- how to get the energy down quick enough?

    Energy accelerators for non-descript basic energies anyone? I can only think of Flygon d (who cud attach basic darks to itself and thus add to the damage...).

    Oh you of little faith...

    SWAMPERT EX DUDE!

    Throw in some Absol ex for manipulation, speed damage etc. and it looks nice. What do you think Andy? Swampy certaily fits the criteria you laid out! Swampy also helps versus our favourite fire monkey (no Primeape, no-one likes you) and the CG one has a nice power and wards off delcatty.

    Eternal Darkness is just an evil attack imo. And with my "gift" of getting Tails, I can see next season not being fun vs this card.
    Shameless self-promotion:

    Mentor, adventurer/TV reporter, general discard from retreat and KOs is one source, but Delcatty may well be the needed path. Holon circle may be used for that, or else scapegoat pokémon such as skitty. An early game Swampy ex may not suffer so much from the "end turn" clause.

    UGH, no energy exceleration needed.
    The deck sets up about T2 or T3 for 60...
    You lay a DRE on Wevile, and a Dark. Then you procede to attach to your next Wevile or Darkrai.
    Run about 3 DRE's, 4 Darks SP, and 10 Regular Darks, and go to town.

    Delcatty energy draw and dark energy and swampert ex and Holon Circle would be VER NICE
