Pokemon Card of the Day: Dusknoir Lv. X (Stormfront)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Dusknoir Lv. X from the Stormfront set. This is a stage 3 Pokemon card, since it is a level up card from the stage 2 Psychic type Dusknoir. Dusknoir has 140 hp which is pretty good. It also has a x2 weakness to dark type Pokemon which is actually pretty good for a x2 weakness because there aren't that many dark type Pokemon used out there, and with 140 hp Dusknoir will be able to last quite awhile being hit with just base moves. Dusknoir, surprisingly, has a -20 resistance to colorless Pokemon so it will be able to last even longer because most decks have some normal Pokemon in it so that Pokemon's damage will do 20 hp less to Dusknoir. Now getting on to the review part of the card...Dusknoir Lv. X doesn't have any moves on this card it only has a Poke-Power so obviously you'll have to use whatever Dusknoir card you want's moves when using this Lv. X card, you can use the regular Dusknoir card from the Supreme Victors, Diamond and Pearl, and one of the two Dusknoirs from the Stormfront set, you can choose which one you want to use yourself. Now onto Dusknoir Lv. X's Poke-Power called Ectoplasm, this Poke-Power is really long on the card so I'm going to try and simplify it for you here, it basically says that if Dusknoir would be knocked out by damage from your opponent you can make Dusknoir a stadium card by discarding all cards attached to Dusknoir and leaving it next to your new active Pokemon card, this does count as Dusknoir being knocked out however, with Dusknoir as your stadium card, between each turn you may put 1 damage counter on each of your opponent's Pokemon, so basically with this card Dusknoir poisons every Pokemon of your opponent's at once, Dusknoir does however act exactly as a stadium card when you use its Poke-Power, so when Dusknoir needs to be discarded you actually return it to your hand, so because of this you would only have to have the 1 Lv. X card of Dusknoir in your deck because you'll never have to discard it. Strategy is pretty straightforward with this card since it is only a Poke-Power, it doesn't matter at all what moves the Dusknoir card underneath the Lv. X card has because you just want to use this card for its Poke-Power and try and take down your opponent's entire team all at once. So thanks for reading today's review of Dusknoir Lv. X from the Stormfront set and stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Palkia G from Platinum.
