    Hello everyone. I am going to raise a topic of awareness on a card that i think is WAY too overrated.
    Let us look at why this card is so overrated:

    1. Completly comboless: What can you make with this card?
    2. Cresselia GE: Is not that good, 3 energy for 50, come on!
    3. Moon Skip: Great! IF the pokemon has 40- HP
    4. Cresselia MD: Let us not get started, future sight: ownage, 3 energy for 40, not so ownage!
    5. Psychic: Gets kicked in one hit by psychic lock!

    So you see, the card that no one will trade is really not that good. It is only pricey for some reason. DISCUSS these points and feel free to debate, thanks!

    Gyarados? Unown P? 2 Prizes taking? Its pretty good and quite probably the best Basic LVX we have right now.
    One doesn't build a deck around Cresselia X. One builds a deck, sees if Cresselia X might fit and then can add said Cresselia X.

    One thing you can use with it is Weavile/Darkrai. You can make the "2 prize" attack do more damage.
    But it is overrated. It's not that good as a throw-in.

    Honestly, I think you should change the name to "Cresselia Lv X underrated?".
    Not many realize how awesome taking two prizes can be now days.
    And if you're smart about how you play it it really isn't that hard to power up at all.

    Base on your topic, it is kinda obvious that you did not try playing Cresselia LVX or did you but it fail?? Anyway, if you know how to manipulate it in a deck, you will find it good & useful...

    It has one of the best Powers in the game, and an amazing, but expensive attack.

    I just don't think anyone has found the best way to use Cresselia LV X yet.

    Yeah, good for you Mr. Bragalot. Now if you're not willing to share your secret and just brag about it, why don't you just shut it? What you're doing smells a lot like random brag-spam.

    I think it's good with gardy PK. Power it up and then move the damage. It worked for me in Regs.

    I'm working on a deck of it right now with SW mothim and an unown p tech. It seems pretty good to me.

    Cresselia will be amazing next season. So many spread cards to take advantage of as well as the new ATM Rock.

    Erm, sorry, did you say overrated? It has one of the best Powers in the format that works in any self-damaging deck. In unlimited: it kills anything with Banette ex and Unown P. And its power stacks, so you have the possibility of moving 2 damage counters. And the attack, well, here is a scenario:

    Two people are playing for the 1st place at the worlds.

    One player has 2 prizes and the other has 1. Opponent's active Infernape Lv.X has full HP. He has a benched Chimchar from MD. The other player has a benched Cresselia and an active Bronzong (he runs a rubbish deck and got to the finals by chance). The Bronzong is 10 HP from being KOd, has no energy attached to him and has *** retreat cost. For the opponent, victory is but a turn away: he has just hit the Bronzong for 80 damage with Mega Bravo. Bronzong does 10 damage to the Infernape Lv.X between turns. Not that it matters.

    But the Cresselia/Bronzong player calmly draws a card. He drops a Premier Ball and gets a Cresselia Lv.X. He attaches an energy to the Cresselia (which already had an energy attached to it). He plays a warp point and Cresselia and Chimchar are the actives. The player level-ups to Cresselia Lv.X, hits the Chimchar for 40 and takes two prizes.

    He wins the title of world champion.

    Okay, that wouldn't happen but you get my point. With PlusPower and Stregnth Charm Cresselia Lv.X can be a mean late-game attacker.

    Jimmy Ballard made Arithmetic playable.

    Cresselia X is underrated,Its Psy,takes 2 prizes and makes spread only so much better next format. This card is deliciously good.

    OK. I really doN'T understand your points:

    1. gallade sonic blade, then plus pwr. (nosada)

    ~This cant happen without plus power

    2. cressy uses moon skip on chimchar (Legendary lugia )

    ~who plays chimchar with 40HP??? You would only play DP, i played infernape many times!

    3. Deidara

    ~I have not played it , which i why i posted

    Note that you have it's power that is a plus power in itself. You can forget it's power. It in a way makes it so that moonskip does 50.
