Pokemon Card of the Day: Shedinja (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Shedinja from the Legends Awakened set. This is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 60. It doesn't have a weakness, retreat cost, or resistance. Its Poke-Power is called Resent and says that if Shedinja would be knocked out by an attack, you may put 40 damage on the attacking Pokemon and 40 damage on each of your opponents benched Pokemon that has the same name. Shedinja's only move is called Curse and Deceive and for only one colorless energy card, Shedinja can put 3 damage counters on the defending Pokemon and if Shedinja has any damage on it the defending Pokemon is confused. So as far as strategy goes this card is a basically a card that is really supposed to annoy you, I might experiment with this card in play but it is going to depend a lot on my opponent on how successful this card can be and the luck my opponent has. If the opponent uses spread damage and I have Shedinja on my bench, Shedinja could end up doing 40 damage off the bench. Also depending on how many of the same Pokemon your opponent has the more damage this card will do. I would give this card a 2 out of 5 because for a stage 1 Pokemon, its hp is horrid and I have also seen cards that if they are knocked out the defending Pokemon is also knocked out, but with this card it will only do 40 damage to that Pokemon which will hardly do anything to a stage 2 Pokemon. I do like the fact that this card doesn't have a retreat cost so you could move it in and out of play to confuse the defending Pokemon. So thanks for reading today's review of Shedinja from the Legends Awakened set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Torkoal from the same set.
