Pokemon Card of the Day: Jirachi (Unleashed)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Jirachi, which is the first card in the set of Unleashed. This is a basic Pokemon with a very average hp of 60. Surprisingly it has a x2 weakness to Psychic Pokemon so you can say good bye to this card pretty quickly if you're battling a Psychic type Pokemon. Jirachi has no resistance type and has an average retreat cost of one colorless energy card. Before I get started with this review I'm going to say that this card isn't an attacker at all but more of a disruptive card. Jirachi's Poke-Power called Stardust Song lets you flip 3 coins when you move Jirachi from your hand to your bench, for each head you may move a Psychic energy card from your discard pile to Jirachi. This Poke-Power helps with obtaining energy for Jirachi which is a necessity if you want to use Jirachi's only move Time Hollow. This move only takes one Psychic energy card but the actually move can use up to 6 energy cards. This move lets you choose as many stage 1 or stage 2 evolved Pokemon cards of your opponents as you have energy cards attached to Jirachi and remove the highest evolved Pokemon card from each of those Pokemon and move them back to your opponent's hand. This is very disruptive because when you use this move you could end up knocking out some Pokemon by deevolving them if they have too much hp damage on them for their lesser evolution. Also your opponent may lose a Poke-Power or Poke-Body they were utilizing with one of their evolved Pokemon. So once again this isn't a powerful or attacker type Pokemon but if you're looking to mess with your opponent and knock out Pokemon by de-evolving them Jirachi is the card for you. So once again thanks for reading my review and stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Togekiss from Great Encounters.
