Pokemon Card of the Day: Ancient Mew (2nd Movie Promo)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Ancient Mew which was a promotional card given away at the theatrical release of the Pokemon movie called The Power of One. This card is written in in medieval Futhark Runic and Gothenburg Runic. I will be translating this card for my review with the help of the Pokemon website entitled Bulbapedia. Ancient Mew is a basic, Psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 40, it has a x2 weakness to Psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a retreat cost of 2 colorless energy cards. Ancient Mew has no Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have one move that takes 2 Psychic energy cards called Psychic, this move does 40 damage. So as far as strategy goes it only has one move so it is really straightforward but unfortunately this card is banned from all tournament play including the unlimited format so this card is basically for a collector's collection or just a remembrance of the Pokemon movie it came with. So if I were to rate this card I would rate it only a 1 out of 5, it has a really bad hp and weakness, its move is decent doing 40 hp but like I said earlier you can't use this card at all and even if you did it would get knocked out lightning fast with only 40 hp. The only reason I gave this card more than a zero is because it looks cool and it is very nostalgic. So thanks for reading my review of Ancient Mew even though it was pretty short, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Kyogre & Groudon Legend from Undaunted.
