Pokemon Card of the Day: Electrode Prime (Triumphant)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Electrode Prime from the Triumphant set. This is a stage 1, electric type, Prime Pokemon card. It has an hp of 90, a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a retreat cost of one colorless energy card. Electrode's Poke-Power is called Ene-Ene Dynamite this move lets you knock out Electrode and once you do this you can look at the top 7 cards of your deck, choose any of the energy cards you see there and attach them to your Pokemon in any way you like and then discard the remaining cards. Electrode's only move is called Gigashock and for two energy cards, one each of colorless and electric, Electrode does 30 damage plus 10 damage to two of your opponent's benched Pokemon. As far as strategy goes I would I think this card is intended to be used only for its Poke-Power so you can just leave it on your bench and when you have a Pokemon card that needs a lot of energy cards quick you can use Electrode's Poke-Power and knock it out and hopefully get at least 3 energy cards out of 7 cards and then attach them to that one powerful Pokemon you have. I would rate this card a 4 out of 5 solely because of Ene-Ene Dynamite because I can just see myself stacking my deck with an extremely powerful Pokemon with high hp and then using Electrode to get a bunch of energy cards on that Pokemon at once, so with Electrode in your deck you can have a card that isn't quick at all be very quick and be able to do monstrous amounts of damage one or two turns into the game. So thanks for reading today's review of Electrode Prime from Triumphant stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Mew Prime.
