Pokemon Card of the Day: Omastar (Majestic Dawn)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Omastar from the Majestic Dawn set, this is a stage 2, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 110. It has a +30 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Poke-Power is called Primal Swirl and says that when you place Omastar from your hand to your active Pokemon spot or bench you may remove all of your opponent's benched Pokemon's highest evolution cards and place them back in their hand. Omastar's only move is called Send Back and for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, and does 40 damage plus the defending Pokemon has to be switched with one of their benched Pokemon. As far as strategy goes I would recommend using this card in a spread damage type deck, this way you could move Omastar into play and then use its Poke-Power and remove all the highest evolution cards of each benched Pokemon and if all these Pokemon already have some damage on it from your spread damage type Pokemon in your deck you should be able to knock out a couple of Pokemon with this Poke-Power. As far as Omastar's move is concerned I don't think it is anything special since it is a move where your opponent gets to choose which Pokemon they want to put into their active Pokemon spot so it might actually work out for them to switch their Pokemon. But overall I would give this card a 3 out of 5 because I don't like its move but I do like its Poke-Power, also it has a low retreat cost for a stage 2 Pokemon but it also has low hp so the good and bad balance out thus making this card a 3 out of 5. So thanks for reading today's review of Omastar from the Majestic Dawn set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Phione the non-holo rare version which is also from Majestic Dawn.

alright card... but cool pokemon, the original 151 pokemon will always be my favorite

not a bad card at all, in my opinion, especially later in the game. There's even an Aerodactyl card out there that prevents evolution, which would pair pretty nicely with it.

I think this should be used in a evolution deck and should be used with fossils

I love omastar! I always would pick the helix fossil in pokemon blue red and yellow. Great card. I love the original 151 pokemon, childhood memories.
