Pokemon Card of the Day: Blissey Prime (Heart Gold Soul Silver)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Blissey Prime from the Heart Gold Soul Silver set. This is a stage 1 Pokemon card that evolves directly from Chansey. This card has a pretty good hp of 130. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon which is standard on Prime cards. Blissey doesn't have a resistance type, and has a pretty average retreat cost of two colorless energy cards. Blissey's Poke-Power is really what makes this card, its Poke-Power is called Blissful Nurse and it says once during your turn when you play Blissey from your hand to evolve 1 of your Pokemon you may remove all damage counters from all of your Pokemon. If you do, discard all energy attached to those Pokemon that had any damage counters on them. So I would definitely wait later into the battle to use this card, I would use this card in a deck with Pokemon that have no retreat costs or just 1 energy to retreat that way you can use each Pokemon for a turn or two and then retreat them when they get a significant amount of damage on them, then evolve Chansey into Blissey Prime and remove all damage from those Pokemon. Also if you do this make sure and have some type of supporter or other Poke-Power that lets you retrieve energy cards from the discard pile. Blissey Prime only has 1 move called Strength which is pretty standard, it does 60 damage for 3 colorless energy cards. This move is nothing special but you can use this card to do a good amount of damage once you get 3 energy cards on it. But like I was saying I would definitely use this card for its Poke-Power. So thanks for reading my review and stay tuned for tomorrow's review.
