Pokemon Card of the Day: Roserade (Unleashed)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Roserade from the Unleashed set, this is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Roserade's Poke-Power is called Energy Signal and this power either confuses or poisons the defending Pokemon depending on which energy card you attach to Roserade, if you attach a psychic energy card the defending Pokemon is poisoned, if you attach a grass it is confused. Roserade's only move is called Power Blow and this move requires one each of grass and colorless energy cards and does 20 damage times the number of energy cards attached to Roserade so if you just have the two required for this move it will do forty. As far as strategy goes I would keep this card on my bench as long as possible and every time there is a new active Pokemon in play I would attach an energy card to Roserade and inflict it with a special condition and I would keep doing this throughout the end of the game until at the end I can bring Roserade in and be able to do at least 100 damage a turn and knock out Pokemon very quickly. I would rate this card a 4 out of 5 because with the ability to inflict a special condition on any Pokemon your opponent plays is a great asset to have, plus the more you use its Poke-Power the more powerful its move will be, so it is a win win situation no matter how you play this card. So thanks for reading today's review of Roserade from the Unleashed set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Steelix from the same set.
