Pokemon Card of the Day: Crawdaunt (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Crawdaunt from the Legends Awakened set. This is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a +20 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Once again this card doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Gripthrow and for two energy cards, one each of colorless and water, Crawdaunt can flip a coin and if it is heads the opponent returns the defending Pokemon and all cards attached to it back to their hand. Crawdaunt's second move is called Prop-Up Pinchers and for three energy cards, one water and two colorless, it does 50 damage unless there is a Technical Machine card attached to Crawdaunt then this card does 80 damage instead of 50. As far as strategy goes you would definitely want to include a few TM cards in your deck to boost Crawdaunt's attack 30 hp. I might also include this card in my deck just in case the opponent has some unstoppable, high energy attack cost Pokemon that will really be hurt if it has to be moved back to the opponent's hand. I would rate this card a 2 out of 5 because even though it can be very good to make the defending Pokemon move back into their opponent's hand when there is only a 50 percent chance of actually doing this it seems too risky for my standards. This card also has a high retreat cost for a stage 1 card and I do like that this card can do 80 damage but I would rather include another Pokemon or strong supporter card then a TM card in my deck. So thanks for reading today's review of Crawdaunt from the Legends Awakened set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Delcatty from the same set.
