Pokemon Card of the Day: Jolteon (Majestic Dawn)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Jolteon from the Majestic Dawn set. This is a stage 1, electric type Pokemon card with an hp of 80. It has a +20 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a free retreat cost. It doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Thunder Fang which does 20 damage for one electric energy card plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin the defending Pokemon is paralyzed. Jolteon's second move is called Lighting Strike and for 3 energy cards, 2 electric and one colorless, this move does 50 damage unless you want to discard two energy cards than it does 90 damage instead of 50. As far as strategy goes you could use this card with the Espeon card I reviewed a few days ago and then Jolteon would have 100 hp instead of 80, I do like I this card how you can set it up on your bench with three energy cards on it, move it to the active Pokemon spot, use Lightning Strike and hopefully knock out the Pokemon by doing 90 damage and then retreat Jolteon for free the next turn. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5, there is nothing really special about this card, it isn't the greatest for a stage 1 Pokemon card but it has the capability to do a fair amount of damage and any Pokemon with free retreat costs is always a Pokemon to consider in your deck. So thanks for reading today's review of Jolteon from the Majestic Dawn set stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Glaceon from the Majestic Dawn set, the holo version.
