Pokemon Card of the Day: Espeon Prime (Undaunted)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Espeon Prime from the not yet released Undaunted set. This is a stage 1, Psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. Unfortunately it has a x2 weakness to Psychic type Pokemon and no resistance but it does have a fairly low retreat cost of 1 colorless energy card. Espeon's Poke-Body makes this card very unique, its Poke-Body is called Evolution Memories and it says that Espeon can use the attacks of all Pokemon you have in play that evolved from Eevee, the only down side to this Poke-Body is that you have to have the necessary energy costs and energy types to do those moves so you can either have a whole bunch of Eevee evolutions in your deck and use special energy cards, or have just one other type in your deck and hope you have enough of that other type of energy card in your hand to do the necessary moves from that other Eevee evolution. Espeon's only move is called Solar Ray and for two energy cards, 1 Psychic and 1 Colorless it does 30 damage and it also lets you remove 1 damage counter from each of your Pokemon. As far as strategy would go with this card it is really straightforward since you only have 1 move, I would probably wait a little while until I played this card so my Pokemon would have some damage on them so I could actually take 1 damage counter off of each of them and also the longer you wait to use this card the more likely it will be that you have other Eevee evolutions in play and then you can use Espeon's Poke-Body to use their attacks. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because for a Prime card it is pretty average, on the downside it has a x2 weakness and a low hp of 100 but on the upside it does have a fairly decent Poke-Body and its only move although it doesn't do too much damage, over time it can help heal your entire bench. So thanks for reading today's review of Espeon Prime from Undaunted, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Charizard from EX Crystal Guardians
