Pokemon Card of the Day: Celebi Prime (Triumphant)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Celebi Prime from the yet to be released Triumphant set. This is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of only 60. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a retreat cost of one colorless energy card. Celebi's Poke-Power is called Forest Breath and this power says that as long as Celebi is your active Pokemon and isn't affected by a special condition once during your turn you may attach a grass energy card from your hand to one of your Pokemon. Celebi's only move is called Time Circle and this move requires 3 energy cards, 1 each of grass, psychic, and colorless and this move only does 30 damage, but is also prevents all damage done to Celebi during the next turn from your opponent's stage 1 or 2 Pokemon. So as far as strategy goes you would have to have Celebi as your active Pokemon in able to use its Poke-Power, other than the Poke-Power I would have no idea why you would want to use this card at all because the only move Celebi has requires 3 energy cards which is a lot especially with a Pokemon that only has 60 hp and this move only does 30 damage the only good thing is that it will prevent that damage done from evolved Pokemon but there are a lot of basic Pokemon out there that will be able to knock out Celebi in two turns. So as far as ratings go I would give this card a 1 out of 5, I was really thinking of making this card my first 0 out of 5 card since it is a Prime card and is supposed to be somewhat better than the other cards. Like I was saying this card doesn't have enough hp, its move is very undesirably and very high costing and too many different types of energy cards are needed for this card. I would stay away from this card at all costs and just find a trainer or another Pokemon with a Poke-Power that lets you move grass energy cards to Pokemon in play. So thanks for reading today's review of Celebi Prime from Triumphant hopefully tomorrow's card review of Magnezone Prime will be a little more triumphant.
