Pokemon Card of the Day: Uxie Lv. X (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Uxie Lv. X from the Legends Awakened set. If you want more information on Lv. X Pokemon click here. For a stage 1 Pokemon card, 90 hp is really average, I thought for a Lv. X card it should have been at least 10 hp higher. A x2 weakness to Psychic Pokemon could be killer especially with a low hp like Uxie had. I wish it would have had a resistance type so it could last a little longer but it doesn't. At least it does have a low retreat cost of 1 colorless energy card. Uxie's Poke-Power Trade Off is the main reason I would use this card, it allows you every turn to look at the top 2 cards of your deck choose one of them and put it into your hand, and put the other one on the bottom of your deck. Just make sure when you use this Poke-Power that you don't use it too much and run out of cards in your deck too soon. I would suggest using this Poke-Power in a deck that you know you can win the game quickly so you can get an extra card from your deck every turn. Uxie's only move Zen Blade is actually a pretty good move, for only 2 colorless energy cards, it allows you to do 60 hp, the only downside is that you can't use Zen Garden the next turn you'll have to use on of the Basic Uxie's moves. As far as strategy goes I would definitely include Uxie Lv. X in just about every deck I made if I want to get as many cards as possible as soon as possible, so if I had Pokemon that needed a lot of energy cards to do attacks Trade Off would be a very good way of getting energy cards quickly, since you would be able to get 2 cards from your deck every turn and then use a supporter or trainer card to get even more energy cards from your deck. I like how Zen Garden needs only colorless energy so you can put Uxie into any type deck, but if you want to attack with Uxie every turn you should put it in a Psychic deck. And if you have Uxie, Azelf, and Mesprit Lv. X all in your deck then you can't utilize Mesprit's move that does 200 hp at once. So thanks for reading my review and stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Gyarados from Stormfront.
