Pokemon Card of the Day: Togekiss (Great Encounters)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Togekiss from Great Encounters. This card is a stage 2 Pokemon card with an hp of 120 which is right around average for a stage 2 Pokemon card. Togekiss has a +30 weakness to electric type Pokemon which is pretty low for a stage 2 Pokemon card which is good but still it is a weakness to electric type Pokemon, i.e. Luxray GL Lv. X so you'll probably be facing electric type Pokemon quite often. Togekiss does however have a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon and a low retreat cost of 1 colorless energy card. Togekiss's Poke-Power is called Serene Grace which is an absolutely amazing Poke-Power, this Poke-Power which can be used when you play Togekiss from your hand to evolve one of your Pokemon lets you look at the top 10 cards of your deck, for each basic energy card in that stack of cards you just drew from your deck you get to keep those and attach them any way you like to any of your Pokemon in play, and the rest of the cards you looked at that weren't energy cards you can just put back into your deck and shuffle it afterwards. Togekiss's only move is called Air Scroll, this move requires 3 colorless energy cards and does at least 40 damage which is below average but it can do much better and no worse. When you use this move you flip a coin, if it is heads the attack does 70 damage instead of 40 damage, and if it is tails it still does 40 damage but you can remove 3 damage counters from Togekiss. As far as strategy goes you can put this card in basically any deck since it is a normal type Pokemon card and can use any energy cards. I would use this card in a deck with a Pokemon that requires a lot of energy cards to do damage, that way you can use Serene Grace and attach at most 10 energy cards at once to that Pokemon. So thanks for reading my review today and stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Celebi ex from EX Unseen Forces.

Really cool card! If it were legal to play, I'd buy one to put in my deck.
