Pokemon Card of the Day: Victreebel (Triumphant)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Victreebel from the Triumphant set. This is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a 2 colorless energy card retreat cost. Victreebel's Poke-Body is called Tangling Tendrills which says that as long as Victreebel is your active Pokemon, your opponent's active Pokemon's retreat cost is two colorless energy cards higher, so this can really mess with decks that are strategized around free retreat costs. Victreebel's only move is called Acidic Drain which takes two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless and does 30 damage plus the defending Pokemon is now Poisoned and Burned and you get to remove 3 damage counters from Victreebel. I would get this Pokemon into your active Pokemon spot as soon as possible so you can utilize its Poke-Body and I would use Acidic Drain which is absolutely amazing and I especially like how you can remove damage from Victreebel every turn. I would give this card a rating of 5 out of 5 because its Poke-Body is absolutely amazing and can ruin your opponent's deck and strategy and forces their Pokemon to stay in and not retreat while at the same time being poisoned and burned. So thanks for reading today's review of Victreebel stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Ambipom from Triumphant.
