Pokemon Card of the Day: Electivire (Triumphant)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Electivire from the Triumphant set which is going to be released November 3rd in the United States. Electivire is a stage 1, electric type, Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 hp resistance to metal type Pokemon and a retreat cost of 3 colorless energy cards. Like Magmortar from yesterday, Electivire doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, its first move is called Plasma which requires one electric energy card, this move does 30 damage and it also lets you search your discard pile for an electric energy card and attach it to Electivire. Electivire's second move is called Thunder Shoot and this move does 50 damage to each of your opponent's Pokemon that has an energy card attached to it, this move requires 3 electric energy cards. As far as strategy goes I would keep Electivire in my hand for awhile and just have Electabuzz on my bench that way you can have your opponent start putting energy cards on their benched Pokemon and then you can evolve Electabuzz into Electivire and then move it to your active Pokemon spot and use Thunder Shoot and be able to knock out most of their benched Pokemon in two moves. I would rate this card a 4 out of 5 because both of its moves are very useful, Electivire can be very quick since Plasma lets you attach 2 energy cards a turn to Electivire so you'll be able to use Thunder Shoot in two turns and then hopefully do 50 damage to not only my opponent's active Pokemon but one of their benched Pokemon too. So thanks for reading today's review of Electivire from Triumphant stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Mamoswine from Triumphant.

This card would have been amazing if it wasn't for the Donphan weakness. That kills it right there and cards like Shaymin-UF and Lucian's Assignment counter it easily.
