Pokemon Card of the Day: Gliscor Lv. X (Legends Awakened)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Gliscor Lv. X from the Legends Awakened set. It is basically a stage 2 Pokemon card and it only has 110 hp which isn't too great. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, but it also like Honchkrow Lv. X from yesterday has a resistance of -20 to fighting type Pokemon and no retreat cost so you can easily move it in and out of your active Pokemon spot very easily. Gliscor's Poke-Power is called Shoot Poison, when you evolve Gliscor into Gliscor Lv. X you can use this power, you can choose one of your opponent's Pokemon and that Pokemon is poisoned and paralyzed so basically they can't attack for that turn and you do at least 20 damage to that Pokemon. Gliscor's only attack is called Night Slash and for two energy cards, one colorless and one fighting you can do 60 hp damage which is pretty good for two energy cards and then you may switch Gliscor with one of your benched Pokemon. I don't see the need for the switch part since you can retreat for free but this way you can attack and then retreat and make another Pokemon take the blunt of the defending Pokemon's damage. So there isn't much to say regarding strategy with this card since it only has one move, but it is good because you can get it very quickly since it only requires two energy cards. I would also use Gliscor's Poke-Power on one of my opponent's benched Pokemon so you can slowly kill that Pokemon while you are attacking the active Pokemon, I could care less about the paralyse for one turn. So thanks for reading my review today and stay tuned for tomorrow's review. And as always if you have suggestions for me don't be afraid to comment and tell me what to review.
