Pokemon Card of the Day: Ampharos (Secret Wonders)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Ampharos from the Secret Wonders set, this is a stage 2, electric type Pokemon card with an hp of 130. Ampharos has a +30 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon and a retreat cost of three colorless energy cards. Ampharos's Poke-Body is called Jamming and this power says that whenever your opponent plays a supporter card you may put one damage counter on each of their Pokemon. Ampharos's only move is called Cluster Bolt which takes 3 energy cards, 2 colorless and 1 electric, and this move does 70 hp damage plus you can discard all electric type energy cards and do an additional 20 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon that has any energy cards attached to it. So as far as strategy goes I would suggest using Ampharos right away, that way you can start spreading damage by using Jamming and then when you use Cluster Bolt you can discard 1 electric type energy card each turn as long as you have some in your hand and then you can do 20 more damage to some of their benched Pokemon and knock them out in 2 or 3 turns if they are basic Pokemon. I would give this card a 4 out of 5 because it has a high hp, a good Poke-Body and good powerful move and you can do spread damage with this card. So thanks for reading today's review of Ampharos from Secret Wonders stay tuned for tomorrow's review of a card from Great Encounters.
