Pokemon Card of the Day: Glaceon Holo (Majestic Dawn)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Glaceon from the Majestic Dawn set, this is the holo version of Glaceon, the regular rare card I reviewed back in September and you can read that review by clicking here. Glaceon is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 80. It has a +20 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. It doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Snow Cloak and for water energy card it does 30 damage plus you get to flip a coin when you use this move and if it is heads Glaceon is free from all effects of an attack the next turn by your opponent. Glaceon's second move is called Speed Slide and this is the standard 60 damage for 3 energy cards, in this case 2 colorless and 1 water. This move is unaffected by weaknesses and resistances so it will always do 60 damage no matter what. As far as strategy goes I would recommend using Snow Cloak if you know you can't knock out the defending Pokemon by doing 60 damage to it and it has less than 100 damage overall, that way you can do 30 damage the first time and hope to flip a heads then the next turn you will be unscathed and be able to knock out that Pokemon, unlike the last couple of Eevee-Evolutions that I've reviewed this one doesn't have a free retreat cost but it is still low so I would go ahead and retreat it once it gets some damage on it since it only has 80 hp but like I said in the last review, if you use Espeon in the same deck each Pokemon that evolves from Eevee can have an additional 20 hp. I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating because with some luck it should be able to knock out at least one Pokemon for sure. Also since it has a weakness to metal type Pokemon, it won't face too many Pokemon it is weak to, thus being able to last longer which will help greatly with only 80 hp. So thanks for reading today's review of Glaceon from the Majestic Dawn set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Leafeon non-holo rare card from the same set.
