Pokemon Card of the Day: Pidgeot (Triumphant)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Pidgeot from the Triumphant set. This is a stage 2, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a free retreat cost. Pidgeot doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Headwind which does 20 damage for two colorless energy cards and makes the attack cost for your opponent during their next turn two colorless energy cards higher. Pidgeot's second move is called Quick Attack and takes 3 colorless energy cards and does 40 damage unless you get a heads when you flip a coin then this move does 70 damage instead of 40. So as far as strategy goes I would use Headwind when you know you won't be able to knock out the defending Pokemon with 40 damage and you know the opponent won't be able to attack if the attack cost is two energy cards higher, if those circumstances aren't present I would use Quick Attack and hope to get a heads and if you get heads two turns in a row you should be able to knock out most Pokemon, and with an hp of 120, Pidgeot will be able to last at least two turns. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because both moves are average at best, I really do like that this card has a free retreat cost so you can move it in and out as often as you like. So thanks for reading today's review of Pidgeot from Triumphant, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Sharpedo from Triumphant.
