Pokemon Card of the Day: Yanmega Prime (Triumphant)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Yanmega Prime from the forthcoming Triumphant set. This is a stage 1, grass type, Prime card with an hp of 110. Yanmega has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and no retreat cost. Yanmega's Poke-Body is called Insight and it says that if you have the same number of cards in your hand as your opponent, the energy cost of each of Yanmega's attacks is zero. Yanmega has two moves, the first move is called Linear Attack and this move requires two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, this move does 40 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon. Yanmega's second move is called Sonicboom and requires 3 energy cards, two grass and one colorless and this move does 70 hp. As far as strategy goes I would try and use Sonicboom every time since it does more than average damage for only 3 energy cards. But if my opponent has a Pokemon that has 70 damage or last I would use Linear Attack on that Pokemon twice to knock it out. I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating because its Poke-Body could make Yanmega extremely quick and the free retreat cost is very nice that way you can hopefully move this card in and out whenever your opponent has the same number of cards in their hand as you do that way you don't have to waste any energy cards on this card. So thanks for reading today's review of Yanmega Prime stay tuned for tomorrow's review.

"...u need a deck that makes sure ur hand is same as opponents every turn."

Prof. Oak's new theory

there are plenty of cards in the game that let you manipulate your/your opponent's hand size. And while you do that and keep Yanmega out doing free attacks, that leaves you open to set up the pokemon on your bench for maximum effectiveness when something DOES take down Yanmega.
