Pokemon Card of the Day: Golduck (Triumphant)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Golduck from the Triumphant set. This is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Golduck's Poke-Body is called Natural Remedy which says that whenever you attach a water energy card to Golduck you may remove two damage counters from it. Golduck's only move is called Powerful Splash which does 30 damage plus 10 more damage for each water energy card attached to all of your Pokemon, to do this move you only need two energy cards, one each of water and colorless. So as far as strategy goes it is really straightforward since it only has the one move, but I would recommend waiting awhile until your other Pokemon have water energy attached to it that way when you use Golduck it will do more damage with Powerful Splash. I do like Golduck's Poke-Body since it will make its hp of 90 seem more like 120 all the time. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5, since it's Poke-Body is really good and Powerful Splash can become very powerful. So thanks for reading today's review of Golduck, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Kricketune from Triumphant.

Powerful Splash says it does "plus 10 more damage for each water energy attached to all of your pokemon." Does that include Golduck? Does energy used to pay for the Powerful Splash attack increase the attack power? For example if you placed two water energies on Golduck would the attack do 50 damage? That seems too good to be true. However, I have seen other pokemon attacks which specify that energy cards used to pay for the attack don't count towards the "bonus". So since this doesn't specify that should I conclude those do count? Please fill me in. Thanks! P.S. this website is awesome.
