Pokemon Card of the Day: Metagross (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Metagross from the Legends Awakened set, this card is a stage 2, metal type Pokemon card with an hp of 120. It has a +30 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to Psychic type Pokemon, and a 3 colorless energy card retreat cost. Metagross' Poke-Power is called Magnetic Reversal and it says that once during your turn you may flip a coin, if it is heads you may switch the defending Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon. Metagross' only move is called Extra Comet Punch and this move does 50 damage for 3 energy cards, two colorless, and once metal, plus when you do this move the next turn if you use the move again it does 100 damage instead of 50. So as far as strategy goes I would put Metagross as my active Pokemon as soon as possible that way I could use Extra Comet Punch right away as long as I have the necessary energy cards, then the next turn that move would do 100 damage. I would use the Poke-Power if my opponent had any basic Pokemon with 50 hp or less on their bench, knock that Pokemon out, and then use the power again next turn when Extra Comet Punch would do 100 damage and switch in a more powerful Pokemon and knock that one out as well. I would give this card a 5 out of 5 because its Poke-Power and only move work amazingly well together and you can basically pick and choose which of your opponent's Pokemon you want to knock out and with an hp of 120 Metagross should be able to last quite awhile in play. So thanks for reading today's review of Metagross from Legends Awakened stay tuned for tomorrow's review of another Legends Awakened card.
