Pokemon Card of the Day: Blaziken (Platinum)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Blaziken from the Platinum set. This is a stage 2, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 130. Blaziken has a +30 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a low retreat cost of only one colorless energy card. Blaziken's Poke-Power is called Fire Breath and this power lets you choose one of the defending Pokemon and that Pokemon is burned. Besides the Poke-Power Blaziken has two moves, the first move is called Clutch and this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 40 damage plus the defending Pokemon can't retreat during their next turn. Blaziken's other move is called Fire Spin and this move does 100 damage for only 3 energy cards, 1 colorless and 2 fire, but you then have to discard 2 energy cards attached to Blaziken when you get done using this move. As far as strategy goes I would stick with Clutch most of the time unless you need a lot of power to knock the defending Pokemon out, but the reason I would stick with Clutch is because you can use Fire Breath and burn every new active Pokemon you face and then you have a 50/50 chance that that Pokemon will do 20 damage to itself every turn and therefore if you only use clutch you could do 60 damage a turn unless you have a Poke-Power on a Pokemon that allows you to retrieve energy cards from the discard pile then I would use Fire Spin every turn and knock out every Pokemon in 2 turns or less. I would give this card a rating of 4 out of 5 because it has the ability to do a lot of damage and I like how this Pokemon can burn every Pokemon it faces. So thanks for reading today's review of Blaziken from Platinum stay tuned for tomorrow's review and make sure to follow me on here if you haven't already.
