Pokemon Card of the Day: Unown ! (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Unown ! from the Legends Awakened set. Before I get too far into this review, you must know I absolutely hate Unown cards. Anyways, this card is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 50. It has a +10 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Poke-Power which is called ! says that when you put Unown ! from your hand to your bench you may flip a coin and if you get a heads you may put 2 damage counters on one of your opponent's Pokemon, it the coin is tails you have to put 2 damage counters on one of your Pokemon. Unown !'s only move is called Hidden Power which takes one psychic energy card and does 10 damage plus 10 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin, but if it is tails you have to do 10 damage to Unown !. As far as strategy goes the only reason you would use this card is as a basic, starter type Pokemon for your deck, and you could utilize its Poke-Power and hopefully do 20 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon. If you do put it into the active Pokemon spot be careful not to knock out yourself. This is another card I would give a 0 out of 5, I HATE Unown cards, why would you play a card that does damage to itself in every thing you could do with it. I could give this card some respect if it wasn't a rare card but this is worse than just about every common card I've seen, I just wished I worked for Nintendo so I could tell them to stop making Unown cards rare. Well thanks for reading me hate on Unown cards, stay tuned for tomorrow's hopefully more positive review of Uxie from the same set.
