Pokemon Card of the Day: Noctowl (Heart Gold/Soul Silver)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Noctowl from the Heart Gold/Soul Silver set. This is a stage 1, normal type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting Pokemon, and a retreat cost of one colorless energy card. Noctowl's Poke-Power is called Night Sight and it is very good, this power lets you once per turn draw a card no strings attached. Besides the Poke-Power, Noctowl only has one other thing on this card and that is its move called Extrasensory which does 40 damage for 3 colorless energy cards and this move has the potential also to do 80 damage instead of 40 if you have the same amount of cards in your hand as your opponent. So as far as strategy goes I would recommend getting this card on your bench as soon as possible so you can utilize its Poke-Power, also I would recommend getting 3 energy cards attached to it that way if you do have the same number of cards in your hand as your opponent you can switch it in and then use Extrasensory and then retreat it again next turn plus since this card is a normal type you can use this card in whatever deck you like and attach whatever kind of energy to this card, so I wouldn't necessarily recommend using this card for attacking, it is pretty decent, but I would definitely recommend using it on your bench all game long. I would rate this card a 4 out of 5 because of its Poke-Power, being able to draw extra cards at will is essential to the trading card game, that one extra card can give you an energy card you need or that Pokemon you need to evolve your current Pokemon. So thanks for reading today's review of Noctowl from Heart Gold/Soul Silver stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Quagsire from the same set.
