Pokemon Card of the Day: Kyogre (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Kyogre from the Legends Awakened set, this is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. I actually use this card in one of the decks I made in a video on YouTube, click here to watch that video. This card has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. It doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Drizzle and for no energy cards you can choose up to two water energy cards from your hand and attach them to one of your Pokemon. Kyogre's second move is called High Tide which does 60 damage for three energy cards, 2 water and 1 colorless, besides doing the damage to the active Pokemon this move also does 20 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon. The only downfall of this move is that you have to discard two water energy cards attached to Kyogre when using this move. As far as strategy goes, make sure to watch the video I mentioned above to get a great strategy, but to sum it up I would use this card with the Empoleon from Majestic Dawn and Kingdra card from this set as well, Empoleon also does damage to all the opponent's benched Pokemon, and Kingdra can reuse the discarded water energy cards, so the more energy cards in the discard pile for Kingdra the better. When using this card you'll want to have a lot of energy cards in your hand so you can use High Tide faster, you can use High Tide and then the next turn use Drizzle and attach an energy card at the same time and be able to do High Tide the next turn. I would give this card a 4 out of 5 because it can do a lot of damage by itself not only to the active Pokemon but to benched Pokemon and it can also provide energy cards to other Pokemon too. Complimented by Empoleon and Kingdra this card is definitely a five out of five. So thanks for reading today's review of Kyogre from the Legends Awakened set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Lopunny from the same set.
