Pokemon Card of the Day: Flygon (Rising Rivals)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Flygon from the Rising Rivals set, this is a stage 2, normal type Pokemon card with an hp of 120. It has a +30 weakness to normal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to electric type Pokemon, and a free retreat cost. Flygon's Poke-Body is called Rainbow Float and it says that if any energy card attached to Flygon is the same type as any of your Pokemon, the retreat cost for those Pokemon is zero, so that means if you had a fire energy attached to Flygon any of your fire Pokemon in play would have free retreat costs. Besides the Poke-Body Flygon has two moves, the first move is called Sand Wall and this move does 40 damage for two colorless energy cards, plus if you discard a stadium card your opponent has in play all effects of an attack are prevented from Flygon during your opponent's next turn. Flygon's second move is called Power Swing and does the average 60 damage for 3 colorless energy cards, plus it does 10 more damage for each evolved Pokemon you have on your bench. So as far as strategy goes I would get Flygon on my bench and start attaching whatever energy I have Pokemon types in my deck so all my Pokemon have free retreat costs, then I would wait until I have a lot of evolved Pokemon on my bench and move Flygon to the active Pokemon spot then use Power Swing and do at least 80 or 90 damage every turn knocking out pretty much everything in one or two turns. I would give this card a 5 out of 5 because its Poke-Body is absolutely amazing and both of its moves are very good. So thanks for reading today's review of Flygon from Rising Rivals stay tuned for tomorrow's review of a Supreme Victors card.
