Pokemon Card of the Day: Vaporeon (Undaunted)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Vaporeon from the Undaunted set. This is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. Unfortunately Vaporeon has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, so beware of Luxray GL Lv. X, and it has no resistance type and a high retreat cost of 2 colorless energy cards. Vaporeon doesn't have a Poke-Power of Poke-Body but it does have two moves. The first move is called Spiral Drain and this move does 20 hp damage to the defending Pokemon for 1 colorless energy card and at the same time lets you remove two damage counters from Vaporeon. Vaporeon's second move is called Dual Splash and this move requires 3 energy cards, 2 water and 1 colorless and does 30 damage to two of your opponent's benched Pokemon cards. As far as strategy goes I would try and get Vaporeon out as soon as possible so you could use Dual Splash for at least 2 turns and try to knock out at least 2 of your opponent's basic Pokemon on their bench, since more than likely they'll have hp's of 60 or less. But if your opponent doesn't have any basic Pokemon on their bench I wouldn't even use this card at all. I would rate this card a 2 out of 5, because overall the moves are quite average so it would have been a 3 but a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon is deadly, and no resistance type doesn't help Vaporeon, also a 2 energy card retreat cost is too much for this card. So thanks for reading today's review of Vaporeon from the Undaunted set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of another Undaunted card.
