Pokemon Card of the Day: Lunatone (Triumphant)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Lunatone from the Triumphant set. This is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 60. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Lunatone doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Lunar Blast and this move does 20 damage for one fighting energy card. Lunatone's second move is called Selfdestruct and this move does 60 damage for 2 energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless, besides doing the 60 damage, Lunatone does 60 damage to itself, so it knocks itself out, and does 10 damage to each benched Pokemon in play, both yours and your opponent's. As far as strategy goes this isn't a bad Pokemon to start the game off with since it is somewhat quick being able to do 20 damage for one energy card and then it if lasts another turn you can more than likely knock out the defending Pokemon, which you hope was a basic Pokemon that your opponent was planning on evolving. The only bad thing about this is that it basically just makes the game one prize card shorter if you self-destruct since both you and your opponent will get to take a prize card. The only other reason to use this card would be to have it in your deck to utilize Solrock's Poke-Body which requires Lunatone to be in play if you want to be unable to move damage counters from Pokemon. So I would rate this card a 2 out of 5 because it really isn't that great of a card, the only good thing about it is you can do some spread damage when you Selfdestruct but I usually don't like using cards that just end up knocking themselves out. So thanks for reading today's review of Lunatone from Triumphant, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Machamp from Triumphant.
