Pokemon Card of the Day: Froslass (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Froslass from the Legends Awakened set, this is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a +20 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, 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 Destiny Bond and it says that for one psychic energy card you need to discard a psychic energy card attached to Froslass and then during the next turn if Froslass is knocked out the defending Pokemon is also knocked out. Froslass' second move is called Icy Breath and requires one each of water and colorless energy cards and does 40 damage plus the defending Pokemon is asleep and you can put one damage counter on each of the opponent's benched Pokemon. So as far as strategy goes I would use this card in a dual type deck with water and psychic Pokemon in it. I would definitely make sure the psychic cards in the deck were spread type damage since Icy Breath can spread damage. I would just make sure to use Destiny Bond if Froslass is really close to feinting that way you could take a prize card as well the next turn or prevent your opponent from attacking. I would rate this card a 5 out of 5 because this card is very good, I love Destiny Bond since Froslass only has 90 hp so it won't be able to last that long except you can make it last longer by scaring your opponent when using this move by threatening to knock out the defending Pokemon if they knock out you. And then I really like Icy Breath since it does damage, inflicts a special condition, and spreads damage, I would definitely base a water type deck around this card. So thanks for reading today's review of Froslass from the Majestic Dawn set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Giratina from the same set.
