Pokemon Card of the Day: Muk (Undaunted)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Muk from the Undaunted set. Muk is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 100, unfortunately it has a x2 weakness to psychic Pokemon, no resistance type, and a 3 colorless energy card retreat cost. Muk has no Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Sludge Drag and this move requires 1 Psychic energy card and lets you switch the defending Pokemon with 1 of your opponent's benched Pokemon, the new active Pokemon is confused and poisoned. Muk's second move goes along with its first move, this move is called Pester and it does 50 damage for 3 energy cards, 2 colorless and 1 psychic, but if the defending Pokemon is affected by a special condition this move does 80 damage instead of 50. As far as strategy goes there is no reason keeping this card on your bench for anytime because it doesn't have a Poke-Power so I would play it right away, first you'll have to use Sludge Drag and I would drag in a Pokemon of your opponent's that has a low hp and high retreat cost that way when the next turn comes around your opponent will either have to waste a lot of energy cards to retreat it or they will have to endure the 80 damage from Pester since it will be affected by a special condition. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because even though both its moves are good it will take awhile to set up and Muk's retreat cost is too high for a stage 1 Pokemon card. So thanks for reading today's review of Muk from Undaunted, stay tuned for more Undaunted card reviews.
