Pokemon Card of the Day: Togekiss (Undaunted)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Togekiss from the Undaunted set. This is a stage 2, normal type Pokemon card with an hp of 120. Unfortunately Togekiss has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon which isn't good especially with the popularity of Luxray GL Lv. X, but Togekiss does have a -20 hp resistance to fighting type Pokemon and a 1 colorless energy card retreat cost. Togekiss doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first one is called Blessed Wings and this move takes 2 colorless energy cards, this move lets you remove all damage from your Pokemon and then return Togekiss and all cards attached to it back into your deck. Togekiss' second move is entitled Air Cutter and for 3 colorless energy cards it does 80 damage, but unfortunately before you get to do the damage you have to flip a coin and if you get tails this move does nothing. So as far as strategy goes I wouldn't use this card for attacking purposes because you might not end up doing any damage at all but I would definitely wait until real late in the game and use Blessed Wings and heal all my Pokemon. Also I would try and make most of the Pokemon in my deck have no retreat costs or really low ones so I could retreat my Pokemon when they get a lot of damage and then once my bench is full of damaged Pokemon put Togekiss in off the bench and heal all of them. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because besides Blessed Wings this card is very average, Togekiss' other move isn't any good since it is a 50-50 chance you'll be able to do any damage and a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon is a big downfall but Togekiss does have 120 hp and a low retreat cost so overall it balances out. So thanks for reading today's review of Togekiss from Undaunted stay tuned for another rare or holo card from Undaunted tomorrow.
