Pokemon Card of the Day: Vaporeon (Majestic Dawn)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Vaporeon from the Majestic Dawn set, this is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a +20 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Vaporeon doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Cleanse Away and for one water energy card, Vaporeon does 30 damage plus it removes 20 damage from each of your benched Pokemon. Vaporeon's second move is called Hyper Whirlpool and this move does 60 damage for 3 energy cards, 1 water and 2 colorless, besides doing the damage Vaporeon can also flip a coin and for each heads you get in a row you may remove one energy card from the defending Pokemon for each heads. As far as strategy goes I would definitely try and use this card in a water type deck and at the same time I would recommend using this card with both Espeon and Umbreon from this same set so you could make Vaporeon have 110 hp, no weakness, and a free retreat cost. You can also use a really powerful water type Pokemon in this deck that has a Surf move or something similar that does massive damage but also does damage to your benched Pokemon because when you use Vaporeon you can use Cleanse Away and heal your benched Pokemon. And I really like Vaporeon's second move since you can remove more than one energy cards from your opponent's Pokemon and not only remove them but discard them. So like I said I really like this card and I am going to give this card a 5 out of 5 because it is absolutely amazing and can be even better with Espeon and Umbreon. So thanks for reading today's review of Vaporeon from the Majestic Dawn set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Deoxys Normal Forme from the Legends Awakened set.
