Pokemon Card of the Day: Kingdra (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Kingdra from the Legends Awakened set. Before I get started on this review I use this card in one of the decks I made on YouTube, click here to view that video. This is a stage 2, water type Pokemon, with an hp of 130. It has a +30 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Kingdra doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, its first move is called Aqua Stream and this move does 10 damage times the number of water energy cards that you move from your discard pile to your deck. And the best thing about this move is that it doesn't require any energy cards at all. Kingdra's second move is called Dragon Pump and this move requires only one water energy card and does 40 damage unless you want to discard two cards from your hand and if you do this move does 60 damage instead of 40 and it does 20 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon. As far as strategy goes I would really recommend you watching my deck video on YouTube for more in-depth strategy but I would recommend using this card with other water type Pokemon that have very powerful moves that need to discard water energy cards that way when you put Kingdra into the active Pokemon spot you can do major damage with Aqua Stream retrieving all those water energy cards from your discard pile and putting them back into your deck. And at the same time you can then use Dragon Pump and have no worry about running out of cards in your deck when you have to discard two cards per turn if you use this move, you could always try and discard water energy cards and then in a few turns use Aqua Stream to eventually get those back. I would give this card a 5 out of 5 because it is very good, it has low attack costs, a high hp, a low retreat cost, and the ability to do vast amounts of damage and spread that damage around. So thanks for reading today's review of Kingdra from the Legends Awakened set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Luxray from the same set.
