Pokemon Card of the Day: Wobbuffet (Heart Gold/Soul Silver)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Wobbuffet from the Heart Gold/Soul Silver set, this is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a 2 colorless energy card retreat cost. There really isn't much to this card, all it has is one move called Double Return which takes two energy cards, one each of psychic and colorless and does 20 damage times the number of damage counters on Wobbuffet. But in order to do damage at all you have to flip a coin when attacking and if you get tails you can't do anything at all. So as far as strategy goes obviously you'll want to get two energy cards on Wobbuffet before you play it and actually this wouldn't be a bad card to start the beginning of the game with with no energy cards on it, that way you can absorb some weak damage from the defending basic Pokemon and then two turns later do at least 40 damage to that Pokemon and knock it out. I do like that a basic Pokemon like this can do a maximum of 160 damage for only two energy cards but you only have a 50/50 chance of attacking every time you try to. But I would recommend trying to figure out how to get some damage on Wobbuffet before using it to attack so that could mean using a Pokemon with a move that does damage to all Pokemon yours and your opponents. But I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because depending on your luck this card could be extremely good or bad, it has the potential for doing a lot of damage for minimal energy but at the same time you might not be able to attack at all, so in the end I think the good and bad balance out to make this card an average one overall. So thanks for reading today's review of Wobbuffet from Heart Gold/Soul Silver stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Mismagius from Unleashed.
