Pokemon Card of the Day: Jirachi (Rising Rivals)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Jirachi from the Rising Rivals set. This card is a basic, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 60. It has a +20 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon and a free retreat cost. Jirachi's Poke-Power is called Final Wish and it says that if Jirachi would be knocked out by your opponent's attack you may search your deck for any one card and put it into your hand. Jirachi has two moves, the first move is called Detour and doesn't require any energy, this move lets you use the effect of a Supporter card in play as your move. Jirachi's second move is called Swift and takes one metal energy card, this move does 20 damage and can't be affected by anything. As far as strategy goes the only way I could see myself using this card would be to sacrifice it very early in the game so I could search my deck for a card I desperately need. Other than that there is no reason to have this card in your deck at all because there are many basic Pokemon that are much better than this card. I would rate this card a 2 out of 5 only because it has a free retreat cost, a Poke-Power, and two moves, even though nothing on this card is very good, it does have a decent amount of stuff on it so it is better than a 1 card. So thanks for reading today's review of Jirachi from Rising Rivals stay tuned for tomorrow's review.
