Pokemon Card of the Day: Deoxys Attack Forme (Legends Awakened)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Deoxys Attack Forme from the Legends Awakened set. This is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Poke-Power called Form Change which is on all the other Deoxys from this set says that once per turn you may search your deck for any other Deoxys and switch it with this card and when you do switch Deoxys to a different form everything is transferred over to that new form, all damage and energy cards. Deoxys Attack Forme's only move is called Psychic Boost which takes 3 energy cards, two psychic and one colorless and does 80 damage but the next turn this move only does 20 instead of 80. This card works perfectly with its Poke-Power since this card can do major damage for one turn you can hopefully start with a different forme in play and then once you get some energy cards on that other forme you can switch to this card, attack one turn and the next turn you can switch the Attack Forme out again and put some other forme in there. So you'll definitely want to include all the forms of Deoxys in this deck to best execute the Form Change Poke-Power. I would rate this card a 4 out of 5 because since you can switch it out right away when you put it into the active Pokemon spot you just have to make sure the defending Pokemon won't knock out Deoxys in one turn and you should be fine. I will be reviewing two more Deoxys Formes tomorrow and the next day so I'll be able to define a better strategy using these cards in two days. So thanks for reading today's review of Deoxys Attack Forme, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Deoxys Defense Forme from the same set.
