Pokemon Card of the Day: Groudon (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Groudon from the Legends Awakened set, this is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to electric Pokemon, and a 3 colorless energy card retreat cost. Groudon doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Drought which doesn't need any energy and allows you to attach up to 2 fighting energy cards from your hand to one of your Pokemon. Groudon's second move is called Major Earthquake and this move takes 3 energy cards, two fighting and one colorless, and does 100 damage, but unfortunately you have to discard two fighting energy cards attached to Groudon and you have to do 10 damage to each of your benched Pokemon. As far as strategy goes I would recommend using this card as a card to help other Pokemon, so I would include it in a heavily fighting type deck and make sure to have supporters in your deck that allows you to get energy cards into your hand, that way you can use Groudon's Draught move right away without attaching any energy cards to Groudon and be able to put 3 energy cards per turn on one Pokemon if you like, or if you really wanted to you could put those two cards from Draught on Groudon and be able to use Major Earthquake every turn. I would recommend using my first strategy however since you may go through your cards too quickly if you discard two every turn. Also the amount of cards and luck you need to succeed with the second strategy of using Major Earthquake every turn is too risky for me. I would give this card a 2 out of 5 because even though I like that it doesn't have to use any energy to use one of its moves I don't like the fact you have to have three energy cards to retreat Groudon. So thanks for reading today's review of Groudon from the Legends Awakened set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Heatran from the Legends Awakened set.
