Gengar EX - XY4**

Reminds me of Gengar Lv X a bit, but whereas that artwork was more appropriate for Gengar, I feel this one belongs more in a carnival. Too much color!

I think it looks quite interesting, goes well with the new stadium. Reminds me of coloured jewels. Perhaps we will see pokemon like Sableye, Clamperl etc that relate to jewels. :open_mouth:

Not into the color globs… with the obvious exception of our amorphous friend, Ditto :S

I found this card interesting to say the least.

My biggest complaint is the boring holo effect that plagues all of our EX cards these days.

Totally agree with Soulwind, at least with the old lv.x gengar you had that crazy effect. If this card had a similar crazy effect, it would do justice to the art. Still quite like it, even though I agree with the comments on it being not gengar like and a bit to colorful for a dark psychic type.

Hmmm interesting, so this is what Pokemon cards look like these days… :stuck_out_tongue:

Since when was Gengar ever this “dark” pokemon?
The only Gengar I recall was the one in Lavendar Town partying with Haunter and Gastly in the playroom.

Well, he is pretty spooky z;)

aren’t you forgetting the first episode ever, battling Nidorino :blush:

He is to blame for the chill down your spine.
Pokedex entry: Gengar, the Shadow Pokémon. Gengar is the final evolved form of Gastly. It can absorb any surrounding heat, leaving a sudden chill.

And we can thank him for the full moon:
LeafGreen: On the night of the full moon, if shadows move on their own and laugh, it must be Gengar’s doing.

But above all, he is a trickster:

Sometimes, on a dark night, your shadow thrown by a streetlight will suddenly and startlingly overtake you. It is actually a Gengar running past you, pretending to be your shadow.

he is the original embodiment of wickedness

The dream eater

I don’t know.
I’m not here picking fights but for a lot of pokemon they can be seen either happy or spooky.
Look at arbok for instance. A giant snake but because part of the Rocket Gang, people think of it as a stupid poke.
