Pokemon Card of the Day: Pichu (Heart Gold/Soul Silver)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Pichu from the Heart Gold/Soul Silver set, this is a basic, electric type Pokemon card with an hp of only 30. Because it is a baby Pokemon it has no weakness, resistance, or retreat cost. It's Poke-Body is called Sweet Sleeping Face which says that as long as Pichu is asleep all damage done to it are prevented. Pichu's only move is called Playground and this move requires no energy cards and it lets each player search their deck for as many basic Pokemon as they like and put them onto their bench. So I would use this card if I had a deck with a lot of powerful basic Pokemon in it, so it would be to my advantage if I got as many of these Pokemon out of my deck as soon as possible that way I would more than likely draw energy cards when I draw out of my deck. Another time to use this card would be in a deck when you have a lot of stage 2 Pokemon so you don't have too many basic Pokemon in the deck, since you'll have to have the basic Pokemon to start to evolve this card will help you get along with your strategy pretty quickly. I would rate this card a 2 out of 5 because even though I think that Playground is a good move I have to think that it could backfire on you if your opponent gets to do the same thing as you when you do this move, that is why I rated it a 2 instead of a 3. So thanks for reading today's review of Pichu from the Heart Gold/Soul Silver set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Sandslash from the same set.
