Pokemon Card of the Day: Yanmega (Legends Awakened)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Yanmega from the Legends Awakened set. This is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a +20 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and free retreat costs. Yanmega doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Sonic Wave which does 10 damage for no energy at all. Plus it does 10 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon and makes your opponent switch their active Pokemon, this would be an excellent card to precede the Spiritomb card I reviewed yesterday in play. Yanmega's second move is called Pursue and Turn which requires 4 energy cards, two each of grass and colorless energy cards, and does 60 damage to the defending Pokemon unless that Pokemon already has at least 20 damage on it then Pursue and Turn does 80 damage to the defending Pokemon and you switch Yanmega with one of your benched Pokemon. As far as strategy goes I would mainly use Sonic Wave with this card, first off I would use it because it doesn't cost any energy cards at all and secondly because it can do damage to every Pokemon your opponent has in play. I really wouldn't even use Pursue and Turn because it takes too long to perform and I would include other spread damage and high attack Pokemon in this deck so I would just use Sonic Wave a couple turns in a row and then retreat for free and move in a Pokemon that does more damage. I would give this card a 4 out of 5 because I really like how it can set up cards like Spiritomb that I reviewed yesterday or other cards that require damage on cards in order to do damage to Pokemon. Also I like you can retreat Yanmega in and out of the active Pokemon spot for free and you don't need any energy at all for this card. So thanks for reading today's review of Yanmega from the Legends Awakened set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Azelf from the same set.
