Pokemon Card of the Day: Nidoqueen (Triumphant)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Nidoqueen from the Triumphant set. This is a stage 2, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Once again this card doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Return which does 30 damage for one colorless energy card and also lets you draw cards until you have six cards in your hand. Nidoqueen's second move is called Prize Count and this move does 50 damage for 3 energy cards, 1 psychic and 2 colorless, and does 80 instead of 50 damage if you have more prize cards left than your opponent. As far as strategy goes this is a good card to use especially if you need to replenish your hand if you have a lot of stage 2 Pokemon and evolve a lot of Pokemon or you use a lot of trainers/supporters, using Return is a great move, as far as attacking goes I would try and use Nidoqueen when you are losing so you can do 80 damage a turn, but even if you aren't losing 50 damage a turn isn't entirely bad. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because I would have preferred if Return would have been more like a Poke-Power that allowed you to replenish your hand and more than likely if your deck is good you'll only be able to do 50 damage a turn with Prize Count, so overall this card is average and deserves that 3 rating. So thanks for reading today's review of Nidoqueen from Triumphant, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Pidgeot from Triumphant.
