Pokemon Card of the Day: Zangoose (Call of Legends)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Zangoose from the Call of Legends set. This is a basic, normal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Zangoose doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Swords Dance and is quite similar to the move in the games, Swords Dance requires one colorless energy card and it makes Zangoose's Lost Claw attack do 60 damage instead of 30 damage the next turn. So Zangoose's other move is called Lost Claw as I just mentioned and for 3 colorless energy cards it does 30 damage and you can also move one of your opponent's cards from their hand to the Lost Zone. As far as strategy goes I would recommend moving Zangoose into the active Pokemon spot as soon as it has 2 energy cards on it, that way you can use Swords Dance right away and then next turn when you have 3 energy cards on it do 60 damage to the defending Pokemon and move cards to the Lost Zone, I would try and keep Zangoose as your active Pokemon as long as possible so even though Swords Dance does increase Lost Claw's attack I wouldn't use it that much I would use Lost Claw more for its ability to move cards to the Lost Zone. I would give this card a 3 out of 5 because I like cards that use the Lost Zone and once again like Snorlax from the other day since this card is a colorless type you can pretty much use it in any deck, I would have wished however that Zangoose could have used Lost Claw for only two energy cards and this would have been the only move on the card. So thanks for reading today's review of Zangoose from the Call of Legends set, this is the last rare card I needed to review to review all the rare cards from this set so tomorrow I will be reviewing Gliscor from the Legends Awakened set.
