Pokemon Card of the Day: Registeel (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Registeel from the Legends Awakened set. This is a basic, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Poke-Power is called Regi Heal and it allows you to remove three damage counters from Registeel if you discard two cards from your hand. Registeel's only move is called Rotating Claws which takes three energy cards, one metal and two colorless, and does 50 damage. When performing this move you may also switch an energy card attached to Registeel with one of the energy cards in the discard pile. As far as strategy goes this card is pretty straightforward, it is supposed to be able to take a beating since it can remove 30 damage from it with its Poke-Power so you can put it out into the active Pokemon spot before it is ready. It is pretty straightforward with attacking, since Registeel only has one move, the energy card exchange with this card isn't applicable anymore since metal energy cards aren't special energy cards so they don't do any extra damage or anything. I would give this card a 1 out of 5 because in my opinion that card is horrible. It has an extremely high retreat cost with four energy cards, and its Poke-Power isn't necessary since it can't do any damage anyways with its move, 50 damage isn't much and since it only has 90 damage it will be knocked out it two turns even if you take 30 damage off of it one turn. So thanks for reading today's review of Registeel from the Legends Awakened set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Shedinja from the same set.
