Pokemon Card of the Day: Azelf (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Azelf from the Legends Awakened set. This is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 70. It has a +20 weakness to psychic Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Azelf's Poke-Power is called Time Walk and says that once during your turn when you put Azelf from your hand onto your bench you may look at all your face down Prize cards and choose a Pokemon from there put it into your hand and move one of the cards from your hand into that prize spot. Azelf's only move is called Lock Up and for one psychic energy card Azelf does 20 damage and the defending Pokemon can't retreat during the next turn. As far as strategy goes I would recommend using this card only for its Poke-Power, this way you can know what Prize cards you have and which one you need to take whenever you knock out the defending Pokemon. And if you do have to use Azelf early on in the game it isn't a bad card for a basic Pokemon, it does do 20 damage for only an energy card and it make the defending Pokemon unable to retreat the next turn so more than likely you should be able to do 40 damage to that Pokemon and see what all your Prize cards are before Azelf is knocked out. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because because it is an average card with an exceptional Poke-Power, I would only include 1 of these cards in the deck so you can use it to see your Prize cards. It does have a little higher hp than most basic Pokemon and a low retreat cost. So thanks for reading today's review of Azelf from the Legends Awakened set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Bellossom from the same set.
