Pokemon Card of the Day: Mr. Mime (Myserious Treasures)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Mr. Mime, which is a rare card from the Mysterious Treasures set. This was requested by HitmonRyan on my Armaldo card review. At least I hope this is the right card since he said it was a rare card from Great Encounters, hopefully he just mixed up the sets. What can I say about this card? For a basic Pokemon 70 Hp is pretty good the only downfall being that you can't evolve Mr. Mime into something, at least not yet. Its Poke-Body Airy Wall is very good. It says that if the defending Pokemon has two or less energy cards attached to it, any damage done to Mr. Mime by that Pokemon is nullified, and if Mr. Mime evolved from Mime Jr. all effects including damage are nullified. This is an excellent Poke-Body like I was saying, especially since Mr. Mime is a basic Pokemon so you can usually get it into play right away and have 4 of them in your deck and be able to attack the defending Pokemon before they get enough energy attached to them to attack Mr. Mime, if I was facing this card I would try and build up my bench Pokemon and just let my active Pokemon die in a few turns because if I tried to build up my active Pokemon when Mr. Mime would knock out that Pokemon all my bench Pokemon would be unprepared to battle Mr. Mime and it would just repeat the same thing of dying and replacing the Pokemon with one that has no energies attached to it and therefore can't attack Mr. Mime. Mr. Mime's only move Trick Play is a pretty risky move but can pay off big, it says that for two energy, one colorless and one psychic, you may place a coin next to Mr. Mime and if your opponent guesses it wrong it does 50 damage to the defending Pokemon, if your opponent guesses right, Mr. Mime does 20 damage to yourself. This is risky in the sense that after 4 wrong guesses Mr. Mime will kill itself even if it's Poke-Body protects it from damage from your opponents attacks. The good thing about the move is that if your opponent guesses wrong it does 50 damage to their Pokemon, which is standard Hp for basic Pokemon, so it will be 1 hit knock outs. All in all this card is pretty good, I would suggest it in battle, especially if you have someway of getting energy cards on your Pokemon faster than your opponent does, either buy using supporter cards or building them up on your bench. That's all I have to say about this card for now, if I have anything else I will post it in the comments. And if you have any cards you want me to review, please tell me. This is PrimetimePokemon and I'm out!
