Pokemon Card of the Day: Meganium (Heart Gold/Soul Silver)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Meganium from the Heart Gold/Soul Silver set. This is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 130. Unfortunately this card has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon but it doese have a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon. Besides that Meganium has a retreat cost of 2 colorless energy cards. Meganium doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two fairly good moves. The first move is called Sleep Powder which does 30 damage for 1 grass energy and it makes the defending Pokemon asleep. Meganium's second move is called Giant Bloom and this move does 60 hp damage for 3 energy cards, 1 grass and 2 colorless besides doing the 60 damage, Meganium can remove 2 damage counters from itself. As far as strategy goes it is pretty straightforward since there are only two moves. But for something different I would try and make the defending Pokemon asleep and then either retreat Meganium or use Giant Bloom. I would retreat Meganium for a Pokemon that has a highly effective move against sleeping Pokemon. I am going to try and start rating the cards today out of a scale of 5. I give this card a 4 out of 5 because it is a pretty good card, it has a high hp, actually has a resistance, and has a somewhat low retreat cost. Also both of Meganium's moves are good, I especially like being able to put a Pokemon to sleep for only 1 energy card and at the same time do damage to that Pokemon. Also I like with Giant Bloom that you can remove damage from Meganium, that way it makes Meganium's hp of 130 seem even better if you can remove damage from it while you're playing it. So thanks for reading today's review of Meganium from Heart Gold/Soul Silver stay tuned for tomorrow's review of another newer card.
