Pokemon Card of the Day: Probopass (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Probopass from the Legends Awakened set. This is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a +20 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance, and a 3 colorless energy card retreat cost. Probopass's Poke-Body is called Steel Coating which says that any damage done to Probopass by your opponent's attacks is reduced by 10 for each metal energy card attached to Probopass, only 20 damage can be reduced in this way. Probopass's only move is called Metal Bomber which does the standard 60 damage for 3 energy cards, in this case, one fighting and two colorless energy cards, besides doing the damage for each metal energy card attached Probopass you can do 20 damage to that many of your opponent's benched Pokemon. As far as strategy goes I would want to include metal energy in whatever deck you're using with this card that way you can utilize Probopass's Poke-Body and attack better, you can make Probopass stay alive longer by reducing your opponent's attacks and you can do twenty damage of let's say 2 of your opponent's Pokemon. So I would include this card with other fighting type spread damage cards so that after a few turns of Metal Bomber you should be able to knock out a Pokemon or two of your opponent's. I would give this card a 3 out of 5 because I like how Probopass's Poke-Body and move work so well together but I don't like that it depends on metal energy to be more effective and at the same time, since Probopass is a stage 1 Pokemon card it doesn't have a very high hp and yet it has an extremely high retreat cost. So thanks for reading today's review of Probopass from the Legends Awakened set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Regigigas from the same set.
