Pokemon Card of the Day: Lanturn (Unleashed)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Lanturn from the Unleashed set, this is a stage 1, electric type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. It doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Confuse Ray and does 20 damage plus confuses the defending Pokemon if you flip a heads for only one electric energy card. Lanturn's second move is called Reflect Energy and this move requires 3 energy cards, 2 colorless and 1 electric, and does 60 damage but after you do the move you have to move one energy card attached to Lanturn to one of your benched Pokemon, which isn't as bad at least as having to discard it. As far as strategy goes I would recommend using a card that allows you to move one energy card from one Pokemon to another that way I could use Reflect Energy every turn and at the same time attach an energy card to another Pokemon in the same turn. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because it is a very average Pokemon card overall, it has average hp, one so-so move in Confuse Ray, a high retreat cost, and a good move in Reflect Energy. If Reflect Energy would have discarded a card instead of transferring it I would have rated this card a 2 out of 5 since it is at the bottom of the 3 rated cards. So thanks for reading today's review of Lanturn from the Unleashed set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Lucario from the same set.
