Pokemon Card of the Day: Xatu (Unleashed)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Xatu from the Unleashed set. This is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Xatu doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Psywave which does 20 damage time the amount of energy attached to the defending Pokemon for only one Psychic energy card. Xatu's second move is called Confuse Ray and this move does 50 damage for 3 energy cards, 1 psychic, and 2 colorless, besides doing the damage you can flip a coin and if you get heads the defending Pokemon is now confused. As far as strategy goes I would try and get 3 energy cards on Xatu but I would only use Confuse Ray if the defending Pokemon doesn't have any energy cards attached to it or you can't knock the Pokemon out during the next turn and you need to take a chance and try and confuse it but to get lucky enough to confuse the defending Pokemon and have it be confused when it tries to attack is only a 25% chance which is why I rate this card only a 3 out of 5 because Xatu's first move has potential for a lot of damage but more than likely it will either do 0, 20, or 40 damage until it gets knocked out. So thanks for reading today's review of Xatu from Unleashed stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Houndoom from the Undaunted set.
