Pokemon Card of the Day: Bronzong (Majestic Dawn)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Bronzong from the Majestic Dawn set, this is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a +20 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, a -20 weakness to fire type Pokemon, and a 3 colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Poke-Body is called Cursed Alloy and says that as long as Bronzong is your active Pokemon, put 1 damage counter on each of your opponent's Pokemon that has any Poke-Powers between turns. Bronzong's first move is called Pain Amplifier and for no energy cards at all Bronzong can put 1 damage counter on each of your opponent's Pokemon that have a damage counter on it already. Bronzong's second move is called Coating and this move does the standard 60 damage for 3 energy cards, one psychic and two colorless and also reduces any damage done to Bronzong by attacks by 20. So as far as strategy goes you definitely want to use Bronzong in a Psychic deck Its Poke-Body and first move work perfectly together and don't even require any energy cards at all, you can do 10 damage to each Pokemon with Poke-Powers with its Poke-Body and then its energy-less move does 10 more damage to each Pokemon that has damage counters on it, so any Pokemon that has a Poke-Power on it will have 20 damage done to it every turn. And if you really want to make Bronzong last long you could set up Bronzong with 2 or 3 energy cards on your bench and then use another Psychic Pokemon card in the active Pokemon spot at that time that does a move that damages all of your opponent's Pokemon that way when you move in Bronzong from the bench you can use its Poke-Body and first move to do even more damage than before and if Bronzong gets some damage on it you can use Coating right away and probably knock out the defending Pokemon and reduce damage done to Bronzong the next turn. I would rate this card a 5 out of 5 because it would be an absolute pain to deal with in pain, as soon as your Pokemon get damage on it it is basically game over especially if you don't have any cards in your deck that remove damage counters. So thanks for reading today's review of Bronzong from the Majestic Dawn set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Empoleon from the same set.
