Pokemon Card of the Day: Elekid (Triumphant)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Elekid from the Triumphant set. This is a basic, electric type Pokemon, with an hp of only 30. Elekid has no weakness, no resistance, and no retreat cost. Elekid's Poke-Body is called Sweet Sleeping Face which says that as long as Elekid is asleep all damage done to Elekid from attacks is prevented. And to compliment its Poke-Body, Elekid's only move is called Sparkling Ball which does 20 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon for no energy cards and once you use this move Elekid is asleep. So as far as strategy goes you would want to obviously use Electabuzz and Electivire in your deck but you would really hope to be able to attack first so you could go asleep and then prevent damage until you can evolve. I would actually rate this card a 4 out of 5 for a baby Pokemon this is a really good card, since you can actually do some damage with this card and then not get attacked at all. So thanks for reading today's card of the day review, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Golduck from Triumphant.

this is a pure luck card. even if u do 20 and put u to sleep there is 2 times where you have possibility of waking up each turn and if that happens ur screwed.
