Pokemon Card of the Day: Kricketune (Triumphant)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Kricketune from the Triumphant set. This is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Like a lot of other cards from Triumphant, Kricketune has no Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Entrancing Melody and this move does 30 hp damage for 2 energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, besides doing the damage you may flip a coin with this move and if it is heads the defending Pokemon is now confused. Kricketune's second move is called Fury Cutter and this move requires 3 energy cards, 2 grass and 1 colorless, and this move does 20 damage plus twenty more damage for each heads you get when you flip three coins, unless all the coins are heads then it does 120 total damage. So as far as strategy goes I would recommend using Entrancing Melody first to confuse the defending Pokemon especially if the Pokemon isn't a basic Pokemon with a low hp, then after that I would use Fury Cutter the whole time, always hoping for 3 heads heads. I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating because both moves are above average in terms of damage done to energy cards required, they only bad thing about this card is that yes it has potential to do 120 damage per turn but with only 80 hp on Kricketune it won't be able to last long in play. So thanks for reading today's review of Kricketune from Triumphant, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Lunatone from Triumphant.
