This card has received a lot of attention due to the new HS-On Rotation. Is it worth it? Let’s find out. Dual Ball’s text says to flip 2 coins, and search your deck for a Basic Pokémon for each heads.
People have been saying the Collector is much less powerful than it once was, and that Dual Ball should replace it, or at least earn more spots in your deck than Collector. In my opinion, that’s wrong. Let’s take a look at the ups and downs of the two:
- Pokémon Collector guarantees you 3 Basic Pokémon.
- There is no such thing as Supporter Lock, so you can use it under Vileplume.
- It takes your Supporter for the turn.
- It’s a Trainer, so you can use as many as you want each turn.
- It’s flippy, so it doesn’t guarantee you anything.
- It can be Trainer Locked.
- You can only at most net two Pokémon.
However, this does not mean that Dual Ball doesn’t have potential. You can splash this into just about any deck, and it can help you. Now what are its main uses? Let’s put this into three categories: MD – BW, MD – CoL, and HS – BW.
MD – BW
MD – CoL
No. Just, no.
HS – BW
Well, this is interesting. Dual Ball can be gold for some builds, and can be rubbish for others. I think that if you want to use Dual Ball, then try it out and see if it works with your playstyle. It’s entirely up to you.
Well, now that we know the pros and cons of Dual Ball, and Dual Ball’s uses, I think it’s time to give it the final grade. But since there’s 3 different formats that we’re able use it in, we’ll give it 4 scores.
MD – BW: 3.5 – 4 out of 5. Like I said above, Sabledonk and Gyarados can use it, and since most of this format’s metagame is speed (sans VileGar), I think Dual Ball has great potential here.
MD – CoL: 1.5 out of 5. It hasn’t seen competitive play for a reason.
HS – BW: 3 out of 5. Yes, no, maybe so; Dual Ball is an interesting card here that might or might not work, depending on your build.
TOTAL: 3 out of 5. It works well in 2 out of 3 formats, so I think that it deserves at least a 3.
Thanks for readin’, and I’ll see ya next time. Bye!
