Pokemon Card of the Day: Hariyama (Undaunted)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Hariyama from the Undaunted set. This is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type and a retreat cost of 3 colorless energy cards. Hariyama has no Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is the standard 3 energy cards for 60 damage, this move called Hammer in takes 1 fighting and 2 colorless energy cards to do the sixty damage. Hariyama's second move is called Backward Belt Throw which takes 4 energy cards, 2 each of fighting and colorless and this move does 80 damage unless you want to do 100 damage with this move then you have to do 20 hp damage to yourself. As far as strategy goes it is really straightforward you want to use this card as your active Pokemon since it has no use on the bench since it only has moves on the card nothing else. I would use Backward Belt Throw every time once I get the four energy cards on it. I would only do the 80 damage every turn since I want to do very little damage to Hariyama to lengthen its time in play. The only time I would do the 100 damage is if it would knock out the Pokemon in one turn. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because this card is pretty average it does have a little higher hp than normal for a stage 1 Pokemon card but a high retreat cost and no resistance type brings the card more down to average. Neither of its moves are something to brag about so in my opinion this is a very average card. So thanks for reading today's review of Hariyama from Undaunted stay tuned for another card review tomorrow.
