Pokemon Card of the Day: Absol Prime (Triumphant)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Absol Prime from the upcoming set called Triumphant. Absol Prime is a basic, dark type Pokemon card with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a resistance of -20 to Psychic type Pokemon, and a retreat cost of one colorless energy. Absol's Poke-Body is called Disaster Eye and this move says that whenever your opponent plays a basic Pokemon from their hand to their bench put two damage counters on it. But in order to use this Poke-Body Absol has to be your active Pokemon. Absol's only move is called Bloody Claw and this move does 70 damage for only two energy cards, 1 each of darkness and colorless, but unfortunately when you use this move you have to put one of the cards in your hand into the Lost Zone and therefore won't ever be able to get it back and if you can't put a card in the Lost Zone you can't use this move. As far as strategy goes I would get Absol Prime into my active Pokemon spot as soon as possible so you can utilize Disaster Eye, also by playing Absol earlier in the game you should have a lot of cards you could get rid of if you really had to and you could always use a supporter to get cards from your deck that you don't want that way you can use Bloody Claw and do 70 damage a turn and since Absol only has 80 hp it shouldn't last too long out there probably not more than 3 turns for sure so you'll only have to part with 2 or 3 cards. I would give this card a 4 out of 5 because this card is very quick and does damage to every basic Pokemon your opponent wants to play and it can do 70 damage for hardly any energy. So thanks for reading today's review of Absol Prime from Triumphant stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Electrode Prime.

If they had printed Lost World, this would be the perfect combo with it. However, it still is a great combo to set up Mew Prime, so you don't have to waste a turn on Mew's attack to put a pokemon in the lost zone.
