Pokemon Card of the Day: Ariados (Heart Gold/Soul Silver)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Ariados from the Heart Gold/Soul Silver set, this is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of only 80. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Ariados has no Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Leech Life which requires 2 energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, this move does 30 damage and lets you remove the amount of damage you do to the defending Pokemon from Ariados so at a maximum you may remove 3 damage counters from Ariados every turn when you use this move, thus making its 80 hp seem not so low. Ariados's second move is called Poisonous Saliva and this move does 50 damage for 3 energy cards, 1 grass and 2 colorless energy cards, besides doing the damage the defending Pokemon is now poisoned. As far as strategy goes I would recommend determining which move to use by looking at Ariados, if it doesn't have much hp left use Leech Life, but if the defending Pokemon isn't poisoned yet use that move, I would probably poison the defending Pokemon first using Poisonous Saliva and then use Leech Life after that. I would rate this card a 4 out of 5 because I would hate to go against this card since it can poison you and poison you and poison you always staying alive using Leech Life, luckily it does only have 80 hp so it probably won't last forever but it still is a good card. So thanks for reading today's review of Ariados from Heart Gold/Soul Silver stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Cleffa from the Heart Gold/Soul Silver set.
