Pokemon Card of the Day: Deoxys Defense Forme (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Deoxys Defense Forme from the Legends Awakened set. This is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Like the Deoxys card I reviewed yesterday, this Forme has the Poke-Power called Form Change which basically lets you switch the Defense Forme with any other Deoxys you have in your deck during your turn when this card is in your active Pokemon spot. Deoxys's only move is called Psychic Defense and for 3 energy cards, 2 colorless and 1 psychic, Deoxys does 40 damage plus the next turn your opponent's attack does 20 damage less and all other effects of an attack are prevented. So as far as strategy goes I would definitely use this card for one turn and use Psychic Defense and then the next turn move in a different form like the Attack Forme I used yesterday. So obviously you would want to include all the different forms of Deoxys in your deck to best benefit all the different strategies of the different forms. Also if you are using Deoxys in your deck you may want to use cards that make you move Pokemon back into your deck or exchanging cards so you can have the forme you need in your deck at all times. I would give this card a 4 out of 5 as well because it has a higher hp then the attack form so it will be able to survive for more than one turn and it sets up the other forms very nicely which don't have the same hp as this card. So thanks for reading today's review of Deoxys Defense Forme from the Legends Awakened set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Deoxys Speed Forme from the same set.
