General description:
One of the most broken Trainers come back into the game!...in Ace Spec form. Well, at least it isn't broken any more.

Computer Search is an incredibly useful card, allowing you to discard 2 cards to get 1 from your deck. The catch? You can only play one in your deck, and makes you exclude any other Ace Spec cards(Gold Potion).

Uses:
It's fairly obvious that Computer Search should be used when you need a card. The 2-card discard is nothing compared to the incredible search you get, but be careful not to discard any card that you may need later on, so be careful when you discard things and what you discard.

Strategies and game play:
This is one of those cards that could completely turn the game around. Drawing this card when you have absolutely nothing going for you is amazing. You can get pretty much just get the tide going in your favor. No strategies needed, this card is a lifesaver if you need it, and can help in any other situation.

Combos with other cards:
In terms of combos, the first one that sticks right out is Sableye. Sableye lets you get back Computer Search, ready for another use.

Skyla also combos with Computer Search. Skyla can grab Computer Search to get anything you need, whether it be Pokemon or Energy.

Computer Search also indirectly does well with Energy accelrators that attach Energy to Pokemon from the discard. With Computer Search, you can discard those Energy to accelerate. Cards like Dark Patch, Eelektrik, and Ho-Oh would appreciate it a lot.

Strengths/Pros:
*Gets any card you need
*Combos well with Item-searching cards
*Can discard Energy to accelerate

Weaknesses/Cons:
*May need to discard cards that would hurt a lot to be discarded
*An Ace Spec card.

Variations:
There is the Base Set version which, unfortunately, cannot be played because it does not have the Ace Spec clause.

Overall rating:
Modified: A must play unless if playing something like Terrakion/Landorus, which may appreciate Gold Potion better. 9.5/10
Limited: Search cards are a must play in this format unless if you get Gold Potion or an Ace Spec tool combo. 10/10
