Pokemon Card of the Day: Moltres (Majestic Dawn)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Moltres from the Majestic Dawn set. This is a basic, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a 2 colorless energy card retreat cost. Moltres' Poke-Power is called Flame Charge and you can use this power when you move Moltres from your hand to your bench, you get to flip a coin and if you get heads you may search your discard pile for up to 3 fire energy cards and attach them to Moltres, so you have a 50/50 chance of automatically being able to use Scorching Wing as soon as you put Moltres in play. Scorching Wing is Moltres' only move and this move requires 3 energy cards, two fire, and one colorless and does 100 damage but you then have to discard all fire energy cards attached to Moltres after the move. So strategy is really straightforward, just make sure when you put Moltres onto your bench you have at 3 fire energy cards in your discard pile so you can use Flame Charge. I would only use Moltres however if I needed to knock out one Pokemon very quickly because without utilizing special Poke-Powers or Poke-Bodies of other Pokemon it will take at least two more turns for you to be able to use Scorching Wing once you use it once. I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating because it can do some major damage but you will have to wait awhile again to use that attack again, so this card is basically useful for one Pokemon then prepare for it to be knocked out since Moltres only has 100 hp. So thanks for reading today's review of Moltres from Majestic Dawn stay tuned for tomorrow's review of another Majestic Dawn card.
