Pokemon Card of the Day: Politoed (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Politoed from the Legends Awakened set. This is a stage 2, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120. It has a +30 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Poke-Body is called Enthusiasm and it says that if you have Poliwag, Poliwhirl, and Poliwrath in play each of these Pokemon's attacks does 60 more damage to the defending Pokemon. Politoed only has one move which is called Frog Hop which requires two energy cards, one each of colorless and water and does 40 damage plus 40 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin. As far as strategy goes you would definitely want to include Poliwrath in this deck so you can utilize Politoed's Poke-Body. Other than that this card is extremely straight-forward concerning strategy since it only has one move, just use Frog Hop every turn. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because it is quite average overall, since it is a stage 2 Pokemon it should have a strong attack move which it does but unfortunately it only has a 50% chance of doing a lot of damage but I do like that fact that its move doesn't cost very much and that it does have a low retreat cost. So thanks for reading today's review of Politoed from the Legends Awakened set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Probopass from the same set.
