Pokemon Card of the Day: Lopunny (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Lopunny from the Legends Awakened set, this is a stage 1, normal type Pokemon card, 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. Its Poke-Body is called Healing Tail and it says that as long as Lopunny is your active Pokemon you may remove 1 damage counter from each of your Pokemon between turns. Besides the Poke-Body, Lopunny has two moves, the first move is called Collect which lets you draw 3 cards for no energy cards at all. Lopunny's second move is called Cross-Cut which takes two colorless energy cards and does 30 damage unless the defending Pokemon is an evolved Pokemon then it does 60 damage. As far as strategy goes I would recommend using this card in just about every deck since it is a colorless energy card, I especially like its Poke-Body, I would base my strategy around this card, I would either include lots of low retreat cost Pokemon in my deck so I could retreat my Pokemon any time they had a lot of damage on them or I would just use pretty much any other strategy and depend on this card if my opponent tries to use spread damage, or if one of my Pokemon does damage to my own Pokemon. I would give this card a 4 out of 5 because it can do so many good things to help your team, I especially like how it can remove damage from all of your Pokemon but I don't like its low hp so it won't be able to remove damage for too long. I also like how it can do 60 damage to evolved Pokemon, knocking most evolved Pokemon out in two turns or less. If I was facing a basic Pokemon I would more than likely just use Collect a few turns to heal my other benched Pokemon and then retreat Lopunny in a turn or two. So thanks for reading today's review of Lopunny from the Legends Awakened set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Mesprit from the same set.
