Pokemon Card of the Day: Beedrill (Unleashed)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Beedrill from the Unleashed 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 free retreat cost. Beedrill has no Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Twineedle which requires only one grass energy card and does 50 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins. Beedrill's second move is called Paralyze Poison which takes two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, and does 20 damage plus it poisons the defending Pokemon and if the coin is heads when you flip it the defending Pokemon is also paralyzed. As far as strategy goes this card can be a real hassle in game, since it has a free retreat cost and it has the potential to do 100 damage really quickly and can inflict two special conditions on you in one turn. I would suggest using Paralyze Poison first especially first to limit the chances of being able to do damage on Beedrill since it only has 110 hp and if I really don't won't to feint I can use Paralyze Poison and poison the defending Pokemon and retreat the next turn for free, but I would be more inclined to try my luck with Twineedle and hope for two heads in a row. I would rate this card 4 out of 5 because it has free retreat costs, and can be a real hassle in play and annoy your opponent like crazy, I would definitely suggest using it in play I would just make sure to be able to evolve your Pokemon into Beedrill as soon as possible. So thanks for reading today's review of Beedrill from the Unleashed set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Crobat from the Unleashed set.
