Pokemon Card of the Day: Quagsire (Heart Gold/Soul Silver)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Quagsire from the Heart Gold/Soul Silver set. This is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to grass Pokemon, a -20 resistance to electric type Pokemon, and a 3 colorless energy card retreat cost. Quagsire has two moves but does not have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body. Its first move is called Muddy Water and this move does 40 damage for 3 energy cards, 1 water and 2 colorless, plus it also does 20 damage to one of your opponent's benched Pokemon. Quagsire's second move is called Mud Shot and this move requires 4 energy cards, 3 colorless and 1 fighting, and does 60 damage. As far as strategy goes I would probably stick with Muddy Water and try and have other spread damage or Pokemon that can do damage to other benched Pokemon in my deck. If you do want to use Mud Shot however you'll have to either include some special energy cards in your deck or have this card in a fighting and water type deck either way I wouldn't recommend it anyways, 4 energy cards is a lot for only doing 60 damage. I would rate this card a 2 out of 5 because the only good thing about it is it has a little higher hp than normal for a stage 1 Pokemon card, but to really do a lot of damage you're going to have to use more than one type of energy cards unless you just want to use fighting energy and not worry about Quagsire or Wooper's other moves plus Muddy Water is an okay move but you're going to have to have other cards in your deck that can utilize the 20 damage on the benched Pokemon. So thanks for reading today's review of Quagsire from the Heart Gold/Soul Silver set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Shuckle from the same set.
