Pokemon Card of the Day: Kingdra (Unleashed)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Kingdra from the Unleashed set. This is a stage 2, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 130. Kingdra has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon which is especially bad since Luxray GL Lv. X is so popular. Kingdra doesn't have a resistance but it does have a cheap retreat cost of one colorless energy card. Kingdra doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have 2 moves. The first move is called Water Arrow which does 30 damage to any one of your opponent's Pokemon, whichever one you choose, for only one water energy card. Kingdra's second move called Stream Pump takes 3 energy cards, one water and two colorless energy cards. This move can do 50+ damage, it does 50 damage without discarding any energy, and it does 80 hp damage if you choose to return one of the energy cards attached to Kingdra back to you hand. If I were to use this card in play I would definitely use Stream Pump every turn and do the 80 damage every turn especially since you don't lose any energy cards but just have to return an energy card to your hand and then the next turn you can just attach that same one to Kingdra again. The only time I would use Water Arrow would be if my opponent has a basic Pokemon on their bench with 60 hp or less then you could use this move twice on it and knock it out, the other situation would be if the defending Pokemon would be knocked out with 30 hp or less damage then I would use this move. So thanks for reading today's review of Kingdra from Unleashed stay tuned for tomorrow's review of another unleashed card. I want to see how many people are actually reading my reviews so when you get done reading this review please comment below if you read it, thanks a lot!!!
