Pokemon Card of the Day: Pachirisu (Call of Legends)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Pachirisu from the Call of Legends set. This is a basic, electric type Pokemon card with an hp of 60. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Poke-Power is called Self-Generation and it says that when you place Pachirisu from your hand to your bench you may attach up to two electric energy cards to Pachirisu from you hand. Pachirisu's only move is called Shocking Bolt and for two electric energy cards, Pachirisu does 50 damage but after you do the 50 damage you need to move all energy cards attached to Pachirisu to the Lost Zone, therefore not being able to use those energy cards for the rest of the game. As far as strategy goes this would be a good Pokemon early on in the game, within a turn you could do 50 damage and more than likely knock out the defending basic Pokemon. So what I would want to happen would be to use this card in a electric deck and put another basic Pokemon in the active Pokemon spot at the beginning of the game and leave Pachirisu in your hand, then the first turn play Pachirisu onto your bench and then attach two energy cards to it and then the next turn retreat the active Pokemon and put Pachirisu in and then hopefully knock out the defending Pokemon. I would give this card a 3 out of 5 because it could be good as a one hit wonder for a basic Pokemon but after it does its one move there is no reason to use Pachirisu anymore since all the energy cards you use when you use Shocking Bolt will be lost forever in the Lost Zone. So thanks for reading today's review of Pachirisu from the Call of Legends set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Palkia from the same set.
