Pokemon Card of the Day: Regigigas non-holo (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Regigigas from the Legends Awakened set. This is a basic, normal type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost. It's Poke-Body is called Recover Mechanism and says that when you attach an energy card to Regigigas you may remove all special conditions from Regigigas. Besides the Poke-Body, Regigigas has one move called Gigaton Punch which requires 3 colorless energy cards and does 60 damage plus 20 more damage to the defending Pokemon and 20 damage to a benched Pokemon if you flip a coin and get heads. So as far as strategy goes I like how this card can go in pretty much any deck since it is a normal type Pokemon card. I would recommend putting one at the max of these cards in a deck since it is a basic Pokemon and requires 3 energy cards for its move which is way too slow to have more than one in a deck. This card can definitely do some damage and if it does get a special effect on it it can replenish its health right away with its Poke-Body, I would give this card a 3 out of 5 because its one move cannot overcompensate for its otherwise weak stats, it has a decent hp but with a 4 colorless energy card retreat cost there is no way to retreat this card without taking forever to do so. So if you're looking for one last card to put into your deck that does some powerful moves, but takes some time to do so, this might be the card for you. So thanks for reading today's review of Regigigas from the Legends Awakened set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Regirock from the same set.
