Pokemon Card of the Day: Regirock (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Regirock from the Legends Awakened set. This is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Poke-Power is called Regi Cycle and allows you to move a fighting energy card from your discard pile onto Regirock if you discard 2 cards from your hand. Regirock's only move is called Stone Edge which requires 3 energy cards, 2 fighting and one colorless, and does 40 damage unless you get a heads when you flip a coin then it does 70 total damage. As far as strategy goes with Regirock's Poke-Power you could actually use this card somewhat fast towards the end of the game by using Regi Cycle you would then be able to get three energy cards on Regirock in 2 turns instead of 3. As far as its move is concerned even if you do get a heads the move isn't that great. I would have thought with a Poke-Power that attached energy cards to Regirock that it would have had a move that did more damage and then discarded energy cards. In my opinion this card isn't very good at all, I would give it a 2 out of 5 because it is a basic Pokemon but it requires 3 energy cards for its only move and there are plenty of Pokemon out there that does more than 40 damage for three energy cards. Also this card has a high retreat cost so if this is the only card you can play it will be extremely slow and you can't retreat it for quite awhile even if you do have another basic Pokemon on your bench you want to put in. So thanks for reading today's review of Regirock from the Legends Awakened set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Registeel from the same set.
