Pokemon Card of the Day: Clefable (Heart Gold/Soul Silver)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Clefable from the Heart Gold/Soul Silver set. This is a stage 1, normal type Pokemon card with an hp of only 80. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a retreat cost of 1 colorless energy card. Once again Clefable doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Fairy Power and this move requires 2 colorless energy cards and lets you return 1 of your Pokemon and all cards attached to it to your hand. Clefable's second move is called Moon Impact and this move does 40 damage for 2 colorless energy cards as well. As far as strategy goes you need two energy cards on this card to use it at all and I would go with Moon Impact almost every turn unless your opponent either has Pokemon that can effect the benched Pokemon then I would use Fairy Power and retreat one of my Pokemon that is almost feinting to my hand. As far as a rating goes I would rate this card a 2 out of 5 because it really isn't that good, it has a low hp for a stage 1 Pokemon card, and Fairy Power is a good move but I could see this move actually being a Poke-Power on a Pokemon, there is no way this move should cost two colorless energy cards, by the time you get two energy cards on Clefable you more than likely are going to be able to retreat one Pokemon two your hand before Clefable gets knocked out so there is really no point in using that move at all, unless the Pokemon you want to retreat is really that powerful and can create massive amounts of havoc if it is fully recovered. So thanks for reading today's review of Clefable from Heart Gold/Soul Silver stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Gyarados from Heart Gold/Soul Silver.
