Ratings - Dangerous Maraquan Yo-yo
Price/power (5/5): Most useful for lower-level (but not beginner-level) pets, since 35 isn't much at higher levels. However, its main competitors are the Cursed Elixir, the Lesser Healing Scroll, and the Greater Healing Scroll, all of which are more expensive. The first two are also weaker.

Tactical (5/5): For pets with the right amount of HP to make use of this, this will be a very useful item, especially since it doesn't take up a healing slot. Suddenly, you find yourself able to heal 35 HP more than usual, while doing an unblockable 35 HP worth of damage to your opponent. The defense isn't simply and added bonus either--while it isn't enough to stop your opponent's attack, it could potentially take a nice chunk out of it--enough for the 35 HP heal to make a difference.

Bonus (0/1): Not sure how a spiky yo-yo can provide defense.

Closing remarks: For low- to perhaps mid-level battling, this weapon is worth picking up. The drain will be quite useful.

Price/Power (4/5)
A very cheap 35 healing drain. Beating the Cursed Elixir rather easily. Given how expensive healing items seem to be a 35 hp drain/heal is pretty decent, even if it will only be useful for a very short while.

Countermeasures (4/5)
Unblockable damage and a small amount of defense. Not great, but by no means worthless. Not the item for everyone but it beats out the competition in its space rather handily.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
This beats the Oasis Tonic by way of doing damage- and while it may not provide as much healing as the previously cheap Greater Healing Scroll it still is valuable in this current climate.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
Given the massive deflation of icons I find it increasingly odd exactly how high good healing items such as the Greater Healing Scroll have risen.
