Pokemon Card of the Day: Abomasnow (Stormfront)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Abomasnow from the Stormfront set. This is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a +30 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Poke-Body is called Snow Veil and says that as long as Abomasnow is your active Pokemon, any damage done to your benched Pokemon is reduced by 20. Besides the Poke-Body, Abomasnow has two moves, the first move is called Snow Play and does 20 damage for two colorless energy cards, it also does 20 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon that aren't grass or water type. Abomasnow's second move is called Below Zero and does the standard 60 damage for three energy cards, in this case, one water and two colorless. And if you just evolved Snover into Abomasnow, the defending Pokemon is paralyzed. As far as strategy goes, this is the perfect way to combat an opponent who uses spread type damage, the only thing is you need to have Abomasnow last in order to prevent this damage. Other than that, this Pokemon is pretty good for a stage 1 Pokemon, since it does 100 hp and it is fairly quick. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because it is average overall, I do like its Poke-Body like I said already, but 60 damage for 3 energy cards is standard on many Pokemon, but Snow Play is an amazing move if your opponent's active Pokemon is trying to do spread damage and doesn't attack Abomasnow, that way you can do damage to a lot of Pokemon at once, quite a few turns in a row. So thanks for reading today's review of Abomasnow from the Stormfront set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Bronzong from the same set.
