Pokemon Card of the Day: Dark Dragonite (EX Team Rocket Returns)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Dark Dragonite from the EX Team Rocket Returns set. This is a stage 2 dark type Pokemon card with an hp of 120 which is around average for stage 2 Pokemon cards. Dark Dragonite has a x2 weakness to colorless Pokemon and a -30 resistance to both grass and fighting type Pokemon. And Dark Dragonite has an average retreat cost of two colorless energy cards. Dark Dragonite has a Poke-Power and two moves. Its Poke-Power is called Dark Trance, this move is a lot like Energy Trans from Sceptile that I reviewed yesterday, Dark Trance lets you as often as you like before your attack move one darkness energy from one of your Pokemon to another, so by doing this you can load up a card with energy cards that you just played onto your bench without having to wait every turn and just add one energy card each turn. Dark Dragonite's first move is called Double Wing attack and it takes one water energy and one electric energy card to do this move, this move does 30 damage to each defending Pokemon. Dark Dragonite's second and last move is called Claw Swipe and for 3 colorless energy cards this move does 50 damage which isn't too great but at least you don't have to discard any energy cards. It is weird with this card that Dragonite's Poke-Power deals with Darkness energy but Dragonite's actually moves don't use any dark energy cards at all. Depending on how I wanted to use this card I would either put this card in a water and electric deck so I can use Double Wing attack and do 30 damage to each defending Pokemon or I would put this card in a dark type deck and just use its Poke-Power and be able to trasfer dark energy cards whenever I want. So thanks for reading my review of Dark Dragonite from EX Team Rocket Returns stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Torterra from Stormfront.
