Pokemon Card of the Day: Lugia (Call of Legends)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Lugia 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, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a 3 colorless energy card retreat cost. Once again, this card doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves. Lugia's first move is called Linear Attack and for 3 energy cards, two colorless and one water, Lugia does 30 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon. Lugia's second move is called Hydro Splash and for five energy cards, 3 water and 2 colorless, does 80 damage. As far as strategy goes I can definitely see using this card with Kyogre that I reviewed a couple of days ago from this set, you could use that spread damage move that has the possibility of doing 40 damage to each of the defending Pokemon and then use Lugia's Linear Attack and knock out many basic Pokemon with Linear Attack. I don't know if I would spend the time to get five energy cards on Lugia but if I can I would so you could knock out many Pokemon in one turn and most in two turns. Once again I wish this card would have a higher hp especially since its second move requires 5 energy cards, it seems like a lot of work to put five energy cards on a Pokemon with such a low relative hp. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because this card pairs nicely with other cards from this set, but once again it is a basic Pokemon that needs time to develop and with a low hp spending that time on this card might not be worth it, but if you're going to use Kyogre in your deck definitely put one of these in your deck. So thanks for reading today's review of Lugia from the Call of Legends set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Pachirisu from the same set.
