Pokemon Card of the Day: Gliscor (Undaunted)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Gliscor from the Undaunted set. This is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. Unfortunately Gliscor has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon but it does have a -20 resistance to electric type Pokemon which is good especially against Luxray GL Lv. X, also Gliscor has a low retreat cost with a cost of 1 colorless energy card. Gliscor doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is entitled Ninja Fang and this move does 30 damage for only 1 fighting energy card, and before you attack with this move, if the defending Pokemon doesn't have any damage counters on it, the defending Pokemon is paralyzed. Gliscor's second move is entitled Poison Jab and this move does 50 hp for 3 energy cards, 2 colorless and 1 fighting energy card. Besides doing the 50 damage it also poisons the defending Pokemon. So as far as strategy goes this card is really straightforward since if you have one energy card on Gliscor you should use Ninja Fang, and when you have 3 cards on Gliscor you should use Poison Jab. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5, to me this card is really average, nothing special about it at all, it has two average moves and if you're looking for a decent fighting type Pokemon card for your deck this one may work, I especially like that you can do 2 special conditions with this card and if you use this card right off the bat you should be able to paralyze the defending Pokemon with 1 energy card. So thanks for reading today's review of Gliscor from the Undaunted set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of another Undaunted card.
