Pokemon Card of the Day: Kyogre (Call of Legends)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Kyogre from the Call of Legends set. This is a basic, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a 4 colorless energy card retreat cost. Like most of the other cards I've reviewed from this set, this card only has one move, nothing else. Kyogre's only move is called Destructive Tsunami and takes four water energy cards and this move does 4o damage to each of either your Pokemon or your opponent's Pokemon depending on the coin flip, if you flip a heads it does damage to your opponent's Pokemon, if you flip a tails it does 40 damage each to all your Pokemon. As far as strategy goes I would keep this card on my bench until it has four energy cards on it and I would also keep the number of bench Pokemon minimal on my side so when I do put Kyogre into play I would only have lets say one very high hp Pokemon on my bench that way if I am very unlucky and get two tails in a row it wouldn't do that much to my own Pokemon, or if you want to be very risky you could have no bench Pokemon when you put Kyogre into play for a couple of turns that way Destructive Tsunami would only do damage to Kyogre if you did get a tails. I would also make sure to include Pokemon that do spread damage into my deck to compliment Kyogre's move. I would give this card a 4 out of 5 because this move can be really really effective if played right, I just wish Kyogre would have had 120 hp or more so I could use Kyogre more than 2 turns if I flip tails both times. So thanks for reading today's review of Kyogre from the Call of Legends set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Lucario from the same set.
