Pokemon Card of the Day: Plusle (Majestic Dawn)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Plusle from the Majestic Dawn set, this is a basic, electric type Pokemon card with an hp of 60. It has a +10 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, 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 Call for Family and takes one energy card and lets you search your deck for a basic Pokemon and then putting it onto your bench. Plusle's second move is called Boost and for two energy cards, one each of electric and colorless does 20 damage unless you have Minun on your bench then it does 40 damage instead of 20. So as far as strategy goes I would definitely recommend using this card with Minun since the Minun card which I reviewed a few days ago has a move that allows you to do 20 damage to one of your opponent's benched Pokemon if Plusle is on your bench. So by including Minun in this deck you can then use Call for Family when you move Plusle into the active Pokemon spot and search your deck for Minun and then the next turn you can do 40 damage for two energy cards which is really good for a basic Pokemon. I would rate this card a 4 out of 5 because Plusle's first move can prevent you from losing the game by not having any basic Pokemon on your bench and then its second move can do 40 damage which is really good for a Pokemon with only 60 hp the only thing is you need Minun but these two cards work very well together and there is no reason why you would have one of these cards and not the other in a deck. So thanks for reading today's review of Plusle from the Majestic Dawn set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Scizor from the same set.
