Pokemon Card of the Day: Wailord (Triumphant)
Today's Pokemon card of the Day is Wailord from the Triumphant set. This is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card with an amazing 180 hp. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a retreat cost of 4 colorless energy cards. Wailord doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves the first move is called Underwater Dive and lets you flip 2 coins for two colorless energy cards and for each heads you may remove 3 damage counters from Wailord. Wailord's second move is called Swallow Up and this move requires 4 energy cards, 3 water and one colorless and does 50 damage plus 50 more damage if the defending Pokemon has less hp left Wailord, which should be true almost all of the time since you can use Underwater Dive to remove damage counters from Wailord and with an hp of 180 already most Pokemon won't even have close to that amount of hp on it. So as far as strategy goes make sure and always have low damage on Wailord so every few turns use Underwater Dive and the rest of the turns hopefully you'll be able to do 100 damage with Swallow Up. I would rate this card a 5 out of 5 because it has a really high hp especially for a stage 1 Pokemon card. And I like how this card can remove up to 60 damage a turn and can do 100 damage a turn too. So this card should be unstoppable in play. So thanks for reading today's review of Wailord from Triumphant, stay tuned for tomorrow's review.
