I am going to hit all rares or rarer, and any notable commons and uncommons ( aka Haunter and the Trainers ).

PokeGymAggron: Well, looking at this card, I get the same feeling I get every time I look at one of the many different Aggrons that have been released over the past few years: It simply doesn’t do enough. I think that it highlights the penalty the design team seems to apply to Pokémon who are able to be tanked with metal energy. The attacks are simply subpar, and with the way the format plays, the fact it may wind up difficult to kill is negated by the fact it is slow, and will be attacked around by most of the best decks.

The card simply does not stack up alongside the likes of say, Steelix and Scizor, or the best of the metal types, Dialga G Level X. These cards simply outclass Aggron by such a large margin, even disregarding the fact that Aggron is saddled with the handicap of being a stage 2.

Altaria: I’m reviewing this simply because I am going to review all of the rares in the set. Needless to say, this card is unplayable. Average attacks on a stage one with no real appealing attributes. I could try and defend it in some way, but there is no possible reason to use this over other cards. Trade it to a kid whose favorite Pokémon is Altaria.

… and that will conclude the free preview of this Underground article.
