Pokemon Card of the Day: Gliscor (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Gliscor from the Legends Awakened set. This is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon, with an hp of 80. It has a +20 weakness to water type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting 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 Burning Poison which doesn't require any energy at all and lets you choose to either burn or poison the defending Pokemon and if you want you may return Gliscor and all cards attached to it to your hand. Gliscor's second move is called Pester and for two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless, Gliscor does 40 damage plus 40 more damage if the defending Pokemon is affected by a special condition. As far as strateg goes I would recommend using Burning Poison first to inflict the defending Pokemon with a special condition so you could do 80 damage with Pester. I would also instead of retreating Gliscor use Pester and inflict the other special condition that you didn't already use and then move everything back to your hand so you can play Gliscor again in a few turns. I would give this card a 4 out of 5 because it can be very annoying to go against since it can do vast amounts of damage and inflict special conditions and with a retreat cost of one energy card you could keep Gliscor on your bench the entire game and always have one energy card attached to it so every time your opponent puts a new Pokemon into play or every time your Pokemon get knocks out you move Gliscor in and either Burn or Poison the defending Pokemon, the only knock on this card is that it has a low hp but you can use Burning Poison and put it back into your hand if you need damage removed from it. So thanks for reading today's review of Gliscor from the Legends Awakened set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Heatran from the same set.
