Pokemon Card of the Day: Sharpedo (Triumphant)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Sharpedo from the Triumphant set. This is a stage 1, dark 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. Sharpedo doesn't have a Poke-Body or Poke-Power but it does have two moves, the first move is called Strip Bare which does 20 damage for one darkness energy. You may also flip two coins when you use this move and if both are heads your opponent discards all of the cards from their hand. Sharpedo's second move is called Rage and this move does 50 damage for 3 energy cards, two colorless and one dark, but Sharpedo does 10 more damage for each damage counter on it so the maximum damage you could do with this move is 130, since you could do a base of 50 damage and if you had 8 damage counters on Sharpedo, 80 + 50 = 130, which is an amazing amount of damage to do for only 3 energy cards. So strategy with this card is straightforward, use Rage if Sharpedo has a lot of damage on it and use Strip Bare if your opponent has a lot of cards in their hand. I would rate this card a 4 out of 5, I would have gave it a five out of five if it would have had higher hp which would have made Rage unstoppable but both moves are great besides and you do have a 25% chance of making your opponent discard all of their cards. So thanks for reading today's review of Sharpedo from Triumphant stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Wailord from Triumphant.
