Pokemon Card of the Day: Darkrai & Cresselia Legend (Triumphant)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Darkrai & Cresselia Legend from the yet to be released Triumphant set. This is a Legend card so you have to have both halves of this card in your hand before you can place both cards on your bench as one Pokemon card. This legend card is dual type, it has a type of darkness and psychic and has an hp of 150. Darkrai & Cresselia Legend has a x2 weakness to both fighting and psychic types, no resistance type and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. This legend card doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, one Psychic move and one dark type move, the first move is called Lost Crisis which is the dark move and takes 4 energy cards, two each of darkness and colorless and does 100 hp damage. This is another move that uses the Lost Zone which is an area of play if cards go to this area they can't be retrieved any way. So once you use this move you have to move two energy cards from Darkrai & Cresselia Legend to the Lost Zone also if you knock any Pokemon out with this move that card and all cards attached to it also have to go to the Lost Zone. Darkrai & Cresselia's other move is called Moon's Temptation and this move requires 1 Psychic energy card and lets you rearrange the damage counters on your opponent's Pokemon in any way you like. So as far as strategy goes I would try and wait until my opponent has an active Pokemon in play that has more than 100 hp that way you can use Lost Crisis on it and then the next turn use Moon's Temptation and knock out at least 1 of your opponent's benched Pokemon. The reason I wouldn't use Lost Crisis every turn is that if you always have to discard two energy cards to the Lost Zone it isn't worth it to you it every turn. This Legend card is very poor in my opinion I would only give it a 2 out of 5 it doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body and neither of its two moves are too great. So thanks for reading today's review of Darkrai & Cresselia Legend from Triumphant stay tuned for Palkia & Dialga Legend tomorrow.
