Pokemon Card of the Day: Umbreon (Majestic Dawn)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Umbreon from the Majestic Dawn set, this is a stage 1, dark type Pokemon card with an hp of 80. It has a +20 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Umbreon's Poke-Body is called Moonlight Veil and says that each of your Pokemon that evolves from Eevee has no weakness and a free retreat cost. Umbreon's only move is called Confuse Ray and does 50 damage and confuses the defending Pokemon for 3 energy cards for 3 energy cards, two colorless and 1 darkness energy cards. As far as strategy goes I would recommend using this card with the Espeon card from the same set since that card has a Poke-Body that increases the hp of each Pokemon that evolves from Eevee by 20. So if you had that card and this card in your deck any Eevee-Evolution would have free retreat costs, no weaknesses, and a hp that is 20 higher. And you wouldn't even have to attack with these cards you could just leave them on your bench, but if you did want to do an Eevee deck I would recommend putting a couple of special energy cards in the deck so you could use one of these cards if you wanted to, but you also could do a psychic and darkness type deck. As far as Umbreon's move is concerned it isn't bad since it basically has the possibility of doing 80 damage each time you use it since it will do 50 damage and then if your opponent flips a coin and gets tails that Pokemon will do 30 damage to itself and not be able to attack Umbreon at all. So I would give this card a 4 out of 5 because I always like cards that inflict special conditions and Umbreon's Poke-Body alone is reason to use this card. So thanks for reading today's review of Umbreon from the Majestic Dawn set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Unown P from the same set.
