Pokemon Card of the Day: Vileplume (Undaunted)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Vileplume from the Undaunted set. This is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 120, unfortunately Vileplume has a x2 weakness to Psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type and a retreat cost of 2 colorless energy cards. Vileplume's Poke-Body is very interesting, it is called Allergy Flower and it says that neither player can play trainer cards from their hand. Vileplume's only move is called Dazzling Pollen and this move d0es at least 50 damage for 3 energy cards, 2 grass an 1 colorless, you also need to flip a coin when you use this move, if you get a heads this move does 80 damage instead of 50 and if it is tails the defending Pokemon is confused. So as far as strategy goes it is really straightforward with only one move, but the thing I would do is stack your deck solely based around Vileplume's Poke-Body, if you do this you will be able to utilize Allergy Flower and make your opponent really struggle especially if they use a lot of trainer cards in their deck. I would rate this card a 4 out of 5 because I think Vileplume's Poke-Body could truly wreak havoc on your opponent and Vileplume's only move can do 80 damage for only 3 energy cards or it could do 50 damage and make the defending Pokemon confused which could result in more than 80 damage total in two turns. So this card is pretty decent and I would definitely suggest using it in a grass type deck. So thanks for reading today's review of Vileplume from Undaunted stay tuned for another review of an Undaunted card.
