Pokemon Card of the Day: Ninetales (Heart Gold/Soul Silver)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Ninetales from the Heart Gold/Soul Silver set, this is a stage 1, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Ninetales' Poke-Power is called Roast Reveal and this power lets you once per turn discard a fire energy card from your hand and draw three cards. Ninetales only move is called Will-o'-the-wisp and this move does the standard 60 damage for 3 energy cards, in this case, two fire and one colorless. As far as strategy goes I would highly recommend putting Ninetales on the bench as soon as possible so you can utilize its Poke-Power, I would especially load up the deck with trainer and/or supporter cards that allow you to search for this card that way you can get this card on your bench right away in the game and be able to draw 3 cards at a time if you wanted to. As far as battling goes I would move this card into play if the defending Pokemon has 60 damage or less on it and Ninetales has 3 energy cards on it, I would knock that Pokemon out and retreat the next turn, I don't want Ninetales to feint and then I will lose the valuable Poke-Power. I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating because it is average everything for a stage 1 Pokemon card, hp and move to be specific but what makes it a little better than average is its Poke-Power. So thanks for reading today's card review of Ninetales from Heart Gold/Soul Silver stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Noctowl from the same set.
