Pokemon Card of the Day: Ditto (Triumphant)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Ditto from the Triumphant set. This is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of only 40. However Ditto still has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, so it will be basically knocked out by any fighting type Pokemon's move, it has no resistance type and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Ditto's Poke-Body is called Dittobolic which says that your opponent can only have 4 benched Pokemon instead of 5 and if they have 5 they must discard one of their Pokemon and all cards attached to it. Ditto's only move is called Sharp Point and this move takes two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage. So as far as strategy goes it is really straightforward, just use Sharp Point every time, but the only way I would use this card is by keeping it on my bench so I could use the Poke-Body every turn. I would rate this card a 1 out of 5, it is terrible overall, a Pokemon with 40 hp will get knocked out by almost everything in two turns so if you don't start using Ditto with some energy cards on it good luck doing anything at all with it. So stay away from this card no matter what, this is probably one of the worst rare cards I have ever reviewed. So thanks for reading today's review of Ditto from Triumphant, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Dragonite which should definitely be better than this card.

learn about competitive play first then start doing reviews again. some pokemon are only used for their poke powers/bodies such as in this case, ditto. it can be sniped but its meant only for its ability. It may be seen in some lock decks like Palkia G lv x if they can't get it on the field quickly.
