Pokemon Card of the Day: Snorlax (Call of Legends)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Snorlax from the Call of Legends set. This is a basic, normal type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type and a four colorless energy card retreat cost. It doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves. The first move is called Layabout and for 3 colorless energy cards, Snorlax is able to remove all damage counters from it, but you cannot use this move the next turn. Snorlax's second move and the only move that does damage is called Clomp Clomp Clobber which takes four colorless energy cards and does 80 damage but after you use this move you have to move one card attached to Snorlax to the Lost Zone therefore you can not get this card back throughout the rest of the game. As far as strategy goes I would recommend keeping Snorlax on your bench and continuously adding energy cards to it throughout the game that way towards the end of the game you could have 5 or 6 energy cards on it and move it into play and then you would be able to use Clomp Clomp Clobber 2 or 3 times in a row and knock out 2 or 3 Pokemon for sure and then if you get a lot of damage on Snorlax you can use Layabout and become fully healthy and at the same time you could add an energy card that turn so then you'd be able to use Clomp Clomp Clobber the next turn. I would give this card a 4 out of 5 because if you have the patience to stock up energy cards on this card when it comes toward the end of the game this card could put you over the edge and you could win the game. I also like the fact that this is a normal type Pokemon card and basic so you could put one of these cards in any deck and even though it only has 100 hp it really has an unlimited amount of energy on it since you can fully heal it all the time with Layabout. So thanks for reading today's review of Snorlax from the Call of Legends set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Tangrowth from the same set.
