Pokemon Card of the Day: Spiritomb (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Spiritomb from the Legends Awakened set. This is a basic, psychic type Pokemon, with an hp of 70. It does not have a weakness, it has a -20 resistance to normal type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Spiritomb's Poke-Power is called Curse Breath which says that once per turn when you move Spiritomb from your hand onto your bench you may put 1 damage counter on all Pokemon that already have any damage counters on them, this includes yours and your opponent's Pokemon. Spiritomb's only move is called Transfer Pain which takes 1 Psychic energy card and says to move one damage counter from one of your Pokemon to one of your opponent's Pokemon. As far as strategy goes this card is a must for any spread damage type deck, and even if the Pokemon damage your own Pokemon that is okay. I would make sure to have a Pokemon that does damage to the benched Pokemon in play as your active Pokemon before you even more Spiritomb into play, otherwise Spiritomb won't be able to do anything at all. So this card is mainly a card to have in your hand until you spread damage to all your opponent's Pokemon with a spread damage card in your deck and then you can move Spiritomb on your bench and damage all of those Pokemon. I would give this card a 2 out of 5 because even though it spreads damage quite well it only spreads 10 damage at once and can't do any damage at all unless Pokemon have damage on them already so this card is highly dependent on other cards in your deck and since this card is a basic Pokemon you may have to play it before you want to which will mean an automatic prize card for your opponent. So thanks for reading today's review of Spiritomb from the Legends Awakened set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Yanmega from the same set.
