Pokemon Card of the Day: Mamoswine (Triumphant)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Mamoswine from the yet to be released Triumphant set. This is a stage 2, water type, Pokemon card with an hp of 140. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type and an extremely high retreat cost of 4 colorless energy cards. Mamoswine doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Icy Wind and this move takes 3 energy cards, 1 water and 2 colorless and this move does 40 hp damage and also makes the defending Pokemon asleep. Mamoswine's second move is called Snowstorm and this move requires 4 energy cards, 2 each of water and colorless and this move does 70 hp damage and does 20 more damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon that already have damage counters on them. So as far as strategy goes you'll want to have this card develop on your bench before putting it in since both of its moves cost at least 3 energy cards, but I would always start with Icy Wind if the defending Pokemon has an hp of more than 70 and less than or equal to 110, but if the Pokemon has an hp of 120 or more or less than Snowstorm you'll want to use that move first so you can either knock them out in one move or in two turns. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because even though it has two powerful moves they take a lot of time to use and if you ever want to retreat Mamoswine you'll have to give up way too much energy to do so. Thanks for reading today's review of Mamoswine from Triumphant stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Nidoking from this same set.
