Pokemon Card of the Day: Spiritomb (Triumphant)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day of Spiritomb from the Triumphant set. This is a basic, psychic type Pokemon, with an hp of 60. It has no weakness, a -20 resistance to colorless type Pokemon, and a retreat cost of one colorless energy card. Spiritomb's Poke-Power is called Spooky Whirlpool and this Poke-Power makes your opponent shuffle their hand into their deck and draw 6 new cards when you move Spiritomb from your hand to your bench. So if your opponent has been using trainers and supporters for a couple of turns to stack their deck this is a really good Poke-Power to use. Spiritomb's only move is called Color Tag and requires one psychic energy card and this move does 10 damage to all of your opponent's Pokemon that is the type you choose out of any of the basic energy types. As far as strategy goes I would really recommend using this card with a spread damage type deck and I would retreat this card in and out all the time as soon as your opponent has to put a new Pokemon in I would put Spiritomb in so it will take the minimal amount of damage to it since it only has 60 hp total. I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating because I like how you can specifically choose which type of Pokemon to damage and this is especially great when you are going against a Pokemon with only one type of energy cards in their deck. This card could definitely be better but it is quite good in a spread damage type deck and I would include it for sure. So thanks for reading today's review of Spiritomb from Triumphant stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Venomoth from Triumphant.
