Pokemon Card of the Day: Palkia & Dialga Legend (Triumphant)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Palkia & Dialga Legend from the yet to be released Triumphant set. This is a Legend card so you have to have both halves of the card in your hand before you can place this card on your bench, also if this card is knocked out your opponent gets to take two prize cards instead of one. Palkia & Dialga Legend is a dual type Legend card being types of water and metal. It has an hp of 160, a x2 weakness to both fire and electric types, no resistant type and a retreat cost of 3 colorless energy cards. This Legend card has no Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, its first move is called Sudden Delete and this move takes 3 energy cards, two colorless and one water and this move lets you move 1 of your opponent's benched Pokemon and all cards attached to it back to your opponent's hand. Palkia & Dialga Legend's second move is called Time Control and this move also takes 3 energy cards, this time 2 metal and 1 colorless energy card. This move makes you discard all metal energy cards attached to Palkia & Dialga Legend and then it lets you add the top 2 cards of your opponent's deck to their prize cards. So as far as strategy goes this card can't do any actual damage but I would consider this card for Time Control alone, I would definitely use this card as soon as possible and add 2 prize cards to your opponent's prize cards, the reason I wouldn't wait late into the game to do this is because it will take awhile to use Time Control once you use it once and your opponent gets to take two prize cards if they defeat it and with a 3 colorless energy card retreat cost you'll want to just keep this card on your bench after you use Time Control once in the beginning of the game. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because you can cause real havoc with your opponent by making them knock out more than the 6 Pokemon they are supposed to. But other than Time Control there really isn't anything special about this card. So thanks for reading today's review of Palkia & Dialga Legend from the Triumphant set stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Lugia from Neo Genesis.

If you combo this with Undaunted Skarmory (attach Metal Energies from the deck while stalling as a 80 HP basic) and Triumphant Bronzong (bringing out DPL to your hand), the card could be very devastating and could draw the match out by adding more and more prizes for your opponent.
