Pokemon Card of the Day: Arceus dark type (Arceus)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Arceus #AR1 out of the Arceus set. I am doing this on lilalindahouse's suggestion on my Facebook fan page. He only suggested that I do an Arceus card I was to choose which one and I chose the dark type because to me it seemed like the most powerful and the most useful. First off the artwork of the card is pretty sweet, I like the dark Pokemon's artwork usually. It is a basic Pokemon with 70 hp which is pretty good for a basic card. The only move that it has Prize Count which does 20 damage or 80 damage depending on if you have more prize cards left then your opponent. This move is very useful especially if you are losing towards the end of the game and need something to save you. As long as you had this card on your bench and have only two energies attached to it you can bring it in and start one-hit knocking-out your opponent's Pokemon. Even if your opponent has a stage 2 Pokemon out there like a Charizard, or Salamence, etc usually their Hp's aren't higher than 160 so more than likely you will be able to knock out their Pokemon in 2 moves. And Arceus's 70 hp will probably be able to withstand one move from an evolved Pokemon because their moves usually do 60 hp damage. So my strategy to get the most benefit out of this card would be to play another card first off in the battle, maybe one that needs to evolve to become stronger and if you can't evolve this card fast enough and it gets knocked out you can have this Arceus card built up on your bench and then bring it in and get at least 1 knock out or however many you need to equal the amount of Pokemon your opponent has already knocked out from you. So all in all this card is pretty good, especially for a basic Pokemon and a quick hitter which could become very important later in the game if you are losing. So thanks again lilalindahouse for suggesting I do this card today, and coming up in the next few days will be Claydol from Great Encounters and the Raichu from Heart Gold/Soul Silver, I will be doing these on account of suggestions, so if you have suggestions please tell me what you would like to see me review. Also tell me what I should do to make my card reviews better. Thanks, this is PrimetimePokemon and I'm out.
