Pokemon Card of the Day: Typhlosion (Heart Gold/Soul Silver)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Typhlosion from the Heart Gold/Soul Silver set, this is a stage 2, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. It doesn't have a Poke-Body or Poke-Power but it has two moves, the first move is called Magma Punch which does 50 damage for 2 energy cards, 1 each of fire and colorless. Typhlosion's second move is called Fire Spin and this move requires three energy card, 2 fire and 1 colorless, and does 120 damage but you then have to discard two energy cards attached to Typhlosion after using the move. So as far as strategy goes I would make sure and have plenty of energy cards on Typhlosion at all times that way you can use Fire Spin every turn and pretty much knock out a Pokemon each turn, I would make sure to include a card in your deck that allows you to retrieve energy cards from your deck or discard pile so you can have an energy card to attach to Typhlosion every turn and at the very worst be able to use Fire Spin every other turn. I would rate this card a 4 out of 5 because it has a very powerful move that can be utilized so that it can use it every turn, I really also like the cheap retreat cost this card has so that if it does get close to feinting or you don't have any more energy cards to attach to it after using Fire Spin you can easily retreat it for a card that can attack right away. So thanks for reading today's review of Typhlosion from the Heart Gold/Soul Silver set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Tyrogue from the same set.
