Pokemon Card of the Day: Lucario (Call of Legends)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Lucario from the Call of Legends set. This is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Lucario doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move requires two colorless energy cards and does 30 damage plus 20 more damage for each of your Pokemon in the Lost Zone and this move is called Dimension Sphere. Lucario's second move is called Sky Uppercut and for 3 energy cards, 2 fighting and one colorless, Lucario does 70 damage and this move isn't affected by resistance so it will always do at least 70 damage. As far as strategy I would mainly use Sky Uppercut but who knows, depending on your opponent's strategy Dimension Sphere might be quite effective and powerful and if you opponent does depend on the Lost Zone this card may prevent them from moving too many of your Pokemon to the Lost Zone if Lucario can take advantage of it. I would rate this card a 4 out of 5 because it has average hp for a stage 1 card, it has a very low retreat cost, and does 70 damage and can knock out most Pokemon in two turns, the only bad thing about this card is that it only has 90 hp so it won't last too long but you can just easily retreat it if you want to. So thanks for reading today's review of Lucario from the Call of Legends set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Lugia from the same set.
