Pokemon Card of the Day: Venomoth (Triumphant)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Venomoth from the Triumphant set, this is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a retreat cost of one colorless energy card. Venomoth's Poke-Power is called Poison Moth Wind and says that once during your turn you may flip a coin if it is heads your opponent's active Pokemon is confused otherwise your active Pokemon is confused. Venomoth's only move is called Stun Spore and this move takes two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless and does 30 hp and you flip a coin when you use this move and if it is heads the defending Pokemon is now Paralyzed meaning it can't attack the next turn. So as far as strategy goes I would recommend having Venomoth on your bench and use the Poke-Power if the defending Pokemon is really powerful and you want to prevent it from knocking out your Pokemon the next turn that way you could hopefully make the defending Pokemon have a 50% chance of not being able to attack the next turn whereas if you wouldn't have used the Poke-Power your defending Pokemon may have been able to attack but it would have been knocked out the next turn and the defending Pokemon would have a 100% chance of doing damage every turn. So I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating because Venomoth's Poke-Power can be very effective and with a low retreat cost you can definitely move in Venomoth for one turn and paralyze that Pokemon for one turn and do a fair amount of damage too. So thanks for reading today's review of Venomoth stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Victreebel from Triumphant.
