Pokemon Card of the Day: Raikou & Suicune Legend (Unleashed)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Raikou & Suicune Legend from the new Heart Gold/Soul Silver Unleashed set. A legend card is different than other cards because you have to have both parts of this card before you can put it into play. For the Legends from Unleashed this card has the most hp with 160 which is really good, especially considering its move Aurora Gain which lets you remove 5 damage counters each turn you use it which will really make this card unstoppable. A x2 weakness to fighting and electric type Pokemon could be troubling especially with the popularity of Luxray GL Lv. X. This card has no resistance type and only needs one colorless energy card to retreat which is really nice and inexpensive. Raikou & Suicune Legend has two moves, one electric, one water. The first move is called Thunderbolt Spear and is obviously the electric type move, and for only 3 energy cards, 2 electric, 1 colorless it does an incredible 150 hp, the only downside to this move is that it does 50 hp damage to Raikou & Suicune Legend. But this damage is okay because Raikou & Suicune Legend's second move is called Aurora Gain and for 3 energy cards again, this time 2 colorless and 1 water, you can do 50 hp damage and also remove 5 damage counters from Raikou & Suicune Legend. As far as strategy goes, I would try and make Raikou & Suicune Legend your active Pokemon as soon as possible, as soon as I get 3 energies on it, it will be my active Pokemon. I will use Thunderbolt Spear every time unless doing 50 damage to myself would kill me or the remaining hp left on Raikou & Suicune Legend wouldn't be enough to endure your opponent's next move. In this case I would use Aurora Gain until I felt safe with the remaining hp on Raikou & Suicune Legend. I personally like this card, I always thought water and electric Pokemon made good combinations to build a deck around since some water type Pokemon have electric type moves, i.e. Lanturn. I would just split up the energy cards in my deck to have an equal number of electric and water energy cards, since you don't need 1 energy more than the other with this card. So once again, thanks for reading this review and stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Alakazam 4 Lv. X.
