Pokemon Card of the Day: Lucario (Unleashed)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Lucario from the Unleashed set, this is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a retreat cost of one colorless energy card. It doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Bulk Up and for one colorless energy card Lucario can do 30 damage plus the next turn any move you use is increased by 30 damage. Lucario's second move is called Magnum Punch which takes two fighting energy cards and does 50 damage. So as far as strategy goes it is extremely straightforward, I would use Bulk Up first and then Magnum Punch the next turn so I could do 110 damage in two turns instead of only 100 damage in two turns by just going to Magnum Punch straight away. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because it will take a little time for you to power up Magnum Punch with Bulk Up and since Lucario has only 90 hp you might not even be able to get to this move, but if you can Lucario can be very effective in knocking out most stage 2 Pokemon in two moves. So thanks for reading today's review of Lucario from the Unleashed set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Poliwrath from the same set.
