Pokemon Card of the Day: Banette (Triumphant)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Banette from the Triumphant set. This is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to dark type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to colorless Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Banette doesn't have a Poke-Body or Poke-Power but it does have two moves, the first move is called Lost Crush and for one Psychic energy card you can flip a coin and if you get heads you can move one energy card from one of the opponent's Pokemon and move it to the Lost Zone, so if you do this your opponent can't get that energy card back. Banette's second move is called Breakdown which takes 3 energy cards, 1 psychic and 2 colorless, this move does 10 damage for each card you have in your hand, so the more cards you have in your hand the better this move is. So as far as strategy goes I would recommend using Breakdown mostly just make sure to have a lot of cards in your hand at all times, I would use Lost Crush when my opponent has a powerful Pokemon out there that needs a lot of energy and I would take one of the energy cards off that Pokemon, but with only a 50% chance of being able to do that I don't think I would use that move much. I would give this card a 3 out of 5 because it is a very average card, that will do good if you really stack your hand with cards but it probably won't do more than 60 damage much and Lost Crush would be a really good move if it went into effect 100% of the time but it doesn't. So thanks for reading today's card of the day review, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Bronzong from Triumphant.
