Pokemon Card of the Day: Ambipom (Triumphant)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Ambipom from the Triumphant set. This is a stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a retreat cost of one colorless energy card. Ambipom doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Astonish which does 20 damage for two colorless energy cards. Besides doing the damage you also get to look at two cards from your opponent's hand and put them into their deck and shuffle it. Ambipom's second move is called Tail Spank which does 60 damage for only two colorless energy cards but you have to discard two cards from your hand when you use this move and if you can't discard two cards this move does nothing. So as far as strategy goes if you have enough cards in your hand I would use Tail Spank every time but if you don't you would have to use Astonish, and another time I would consider using Astonish would be if my opponent just used a card that let them search for some cards from their deck, when they are getting their cards from their deck make sure and notice where they put these cards in their hand so you can use Astonish and put these cards back into their deck using Astonish. So I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because it is very average, it has two decent moves but both could be better, but it would be a decent card to include in a deck. So thanks for reading today's review of Ambipom from Triumphant, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Banette from Triumphant.
