Pokemon Card of the Day: Delcatty (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Delcatty from the Legends Awakened set. This is a stage 1, normal type Pokemon, with an hp of 80. It has a +20 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Delcatty's Poke-Body is called Attracting Body and says that if a Pokemon attacks Delcatty when Delcatty is the active Pokemon, you may flip a coin and if it is heads the defending Pokemon is not confused. Delcatty's only move is called Energy Assist and for only one colorless energy card Delcatty does 30 damage plus you may search your discard pile for one energy card and attack it to one of your Pokemon. As far as strategy goes I could foresee using this card maybe once in a deck since its Poke-Body can make the defending Pokemon confused and Delcatty's attack does do 30 damage you could do a significant amount of damage with this card if things work out right. But I would be using this card more for its ability to help other Pokemon since it can attach energy cards from the discard pile to benched Pokemon. I just wish this card would have a higher hp so if you just wanted to put this card into the active Pokemon spot to retrieve energy cards it may not last more than a turn or two especially if the defending Pokemon doesn't become confused. I would give this card a 2 out of 5 because in my opinion I could see this card as a basic Pokemon card, a good one at that, but since this card is a stage 1 card it is only mediocre at best. I don't think I would use this card in any deck because I would just include a supporter card that retrieves energy cards from the discard pile or a Pokemon that has a power that does the same thing. So thanks for reading today's review of Delcatty from the Legends Awakened set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Deoxys Attack Forme from the same set.
