Pokemon Card of the Day: Entei & Raikou Legend (Unleashed)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Raikou & Entei Legend from the Unleashed set. A Legend card is a card that you need both halves of the card in your hand before you can play the card, you then have to put down both cards together on your bench. Raikou & Entei Legend has the worst hp of the 3 Legend cards in the Unleashed set with 140 hp. It is a Fire and Electric type card and has a x2 weakness to water and fighting type Pokemon. It doesn't have a resistance type and it also doesn't have a retreat cost so you can move it in and out of play without giving up any energy cards. Raikou & Entei Legend doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it actually works out well that it doesn't with one of the moves it has that I will talk about later. The first move on Raikou & Entei Legend is a fire type move and is called Detonation Spin and for only two energy cards, 1 fire energy and 1 colorless energy it does 90 hp which is way above average for only two energy cards, when you use this move you then have to discard a fire energy card from Raikou & Entei Legend. Raikou & Entei Legend's second move is the electric type move and it is called Thunder Fall and requires two energy cards, 1 electric and 1 colorless. This move does 80 hp damage to each Pokemon in play, your and your opponent's who has a Poke-Power, you have to discard all energy cards attached to Raikou & Entei Legend after using the move. As far as strategy goes, you can either put this card in a Fire and Electric type deck or just use one of its types. I would definitely use Detonation Spin more often than Thunder Fall unless your opponent relies on Poke-Powers and you don't use Poke-Powers at all, then Thunder Fall would be the best move, but I would use this move solely for Detonation Spin. So thanks for reading my review and stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Mewtwo from Legends Awakened.
