Pokemon Card of the Day: Dugtrio (Triumphant)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Dugtrio from the Triumphant set. This is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to electric type Pokemon, and a free retreat cost. Dugtrio doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Dig which does 30 damage for only one fighting energy card. Dugtrio's second move is called Sand Impact and for 3 colorless energy cards, Dugtrio does 50 damage plus 20 more damage for each heads you get when you flip a coin for each fighting energy card attached to Dugtrio, so if you have 3 fighting energy cards attached to Dugtrio to do this move you could possibly do 110 damage for only 3 energy cards. So as far as strategy goes I would use Sand Impact every time no matter what, there would be no instances I wouldn't, if I had 3 energy cards on it of course, but I would definitely try and attach all fighting energy cards to it but I probably wouldn't attach too many more energy cards to it besides the 3 because with only 80 hp, Dugtrio won't last too long. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because even though Sand Impact does have high damage potential, with a low hp, Dugtrio won't last very long, but if you really do get in trouble you can always retreat it for free. So thanks for reading today's review of Dugtrio from Triumphant, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Elekid from Triumphant.
