Pokemon Card of the Day: Nidoking (Base Set)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Nidoking from the Base Set, this is another Facebook suggestion. Nidoking is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a 3 colorless energy card retreat cost. Nidoking doesn't have a Pokemon Power but it does have two pretty good moves, the first move is called Thrash and does 30 damage for 3 energy cards, 2 colorless, and one grass, and when you use this move you flip a coin and if you get heads this move does 40 damage instead of 30, but if you flip tails you have to do 10 damage to yourself. Nidoking's second move is called Toxic which takes 3 grass energy cards and does 20 damage plus it poisons the defending Pokemon and instead of doing 10 damage between turns for poison it does 20. So as far as strategy goes I would recommend using Toxic first so you can poison the defending Pokemon first and then after that use Thrash until you knock out that Pokemon. I can't really rate this card since you can't play it anymore but I do think this card is quite good for the base set since you can do two powerful moves and do a lot of damage to the defending Pokemon and at the same time affect the defending Pokemon with a special condition. So thanks for reading today's review of Nidoking from Base Set stay tuned for tomorrow's review.
