Pokemon Card of the Day: Exeggutor (Heart Gold/Soul Silver)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Exeggutor from the Heart Gold/Soul Silver set. This is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Exeggutor doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Energy Absorption and this move allows you for one colorless energy card to search your discard pile for up to 2 energy cards and attach them to Exeggutor. Exeggutor's second move is called Big Eggsplosion and this move requires 1 psychic energy card and does 40 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip once for each energy card attached to Exeggutor. So as far as strategy goes I would recommend stacking up energy cards on Exeggutor on the bench prior to moving it to the active Pokemon spot, I would say at least 2 energy cards then I would use Energy Absorption the first time I moved Exeggutor into the active spot, thus being able to do 80 damage per turn, hopefully, every turn using Big Eggsplosion. I would rate this card a 2 out of 5 because it would be nice to be able to do 20 damage times the number of energy cards attached to Exeggutor but when you only have a 50% chance of doing damage for each energy card attached to it, it greatly reduces any incentive to stock up energy cards on it, I would recommend using another Pokemon to do massive amounts of damage with. So thanks for reading today's review of Exeggutor from the Heart Gold/Soul Silver set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Farfetch'd from the same set.
