Pokemon Card of the Day: Slowking (Heart Gold/Soul Silver)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Slowking from the Heart Gold/Soul Silver set. This is a stage 1, Psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 80. Unfortunately it has a x2 weakness to Psychic type Pokemon, and no resistance type, and a somewhat high retreat cost of 2 colorless energy cards. Slowking does have a Poke-Power called Second Sight that lets you look at either you or your opponent's deck every turn, every turn you can look at the top 3 cards of either of the aforementioned player's decks and put them back in any order you like, this way if you look at your deck you can put an energy card or evolution card or something you need on top and if you look at your opponent's deck you can put a card they don't need on top and a card they do need as the third card down. What I would try and do with this Poke-Power is to use this with another Poke-Power or move that lets you see your opponent's hand that way you would for sure know what your opponent needs. Slowking's only move is called Psyshock and this move does 30 damage for 2 energy cards, 1 Psychic and 1 colorless also when you do this move you may flip a coin and if it is heads the defending Pokemon is now Paralyzed. As far as strategy goes I would definitely use this card for its Poke-Power, there isn't anything special about its move so if I could just keep this card on the bench the whole game that is what I would do. I would rate this card a 3/5 because it is a pretty average card the only thing going for it that is good is its Poke-Power other than that it is pretty similar to all the rest of the HGSS rare cards with a x2 weakness, low hp, and crummy moves. So thanks for reading today's review of Slowking from Heart Gold/Soul Silver stay tuned tomorrow for another review of a newer Pokemon card.
