Pokemon Card of the Day: Infernape (Diamond and Pearl)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Infernape from the Diamond and Pearl set. This is a stage 2 Pokemon card and it only has 100 hp which isn't very good, but I suppose you could always level it up to Infernape Lv. X. But for only having 100 hp it's weakness is only +30 hp to water type Pokemon which isn't too bad, it always could have been x2, it doesn't have a resistance type and it doesn't have a retreat cost. So for having a somewhat low hp a not too strong weakness and no retreat cost make up for it. This card has no Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two pretty decent moves. The first is called Meteor Punch and takes only one colorless energy card, it lets you flip a coin until you get tails and for each heads you get it does 30x damage. Infernape's second move is called Flare Blitz and for only two fire energy cards it does 90 hp damage, this move is way above average in terms of energy cards needed to damage done but you also have to discard both energy cards when you use this move. As far as strategy goes I would definitely try and use Flare Blitz as often as I could, but I guess I don't have much of an option if I only have 1 energy card on it I would have to use Meteor Punch. But as soon as I get 2 energy cards on it I would use Flare Blitz no matter what. And if you had the Infernape Lv. X card from this set in your deck you could use one of its moves to get up to 8 fire energy cards out of your discard pile and put them back into your deck, this way you will always have enough fire energy cards to be able to use Flare Blitz endlessly. So thanks for reading this review and stay tuned for tomorrow's review of the last Legend card from Unleashed which is Entei & Raikou Legend. Also make sure and vote on my new poll at the bottom of my blog page. Which Legend card do you like the best is the poll.
