Pokemon Card of the Day: Grumpig (Triumphant)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Grumpig from the Triumphant set. This is a stage 1, Psychic type, Pokemon card with an hp of 90. Grumpig has a x2 weakness to Psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a retreat cost of two colorless energy cards. Grumpig has no Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Psychic Lock and this move does 20 damage for 2 energy cards, 1 each of colorless and psychic. Besides doing the 20 damage you opponent can't use any Poke-Powers the next turn. Grumpig's second move is called Bench Manipulation and this move takes 3 energy cards, 1 Psychic, and two colorless energy cards, and does 40 damage times the number of tails your opponent gets when they flip one coin for each benched Pokemon card they have. So the best strategy for this card would be to wait until your opponent has a full bench before you play this card that way you can have an opportunity to do a great amount of damage for only 3 energy cards. Also I guess if your opponent is really relying on a certain Poke-Power you could always you Psychic Lock if that will greatly mess with their strategy. I am going to give this card a 3 out of 5 because even though this card has the possibility to do a great amount of damage it depends entirely on your opponent and that is always a risky chance to take. So thanks for reading today's review of Grumpig from Triumphant stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Absol Prime.
