Pokemon Card of the Day: Cherrim (Stormfront)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Cherrim from the Stormfront set. This is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a +20 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Cherrim's Poke-Body is called Sunny Day and lets each of your grass and fire Pokemon do 10 more damage for each of its moves. So with Cherrim's Poke-Body taken into account, its first move is called Salty-sweet Pollen and does 30 damage for no energy cards at all, plus you can remove 2 damage counters from one of your Pokemon. Cherrim's second move is called Solarbeam which does the standard 60 damage for three energy cards, in this case, 1 grass and two colorless. As far as strategy goes I would definitely want this card in a fire and grass deck so I could have it on my bench at all times and use Sunny Day to increase all of my Pokemon's moves by 10. Other than that, I wouldn't even attach any energy cards to Cherrim when I actually attack with it, I would stick to Salty-sweet Pollen which does damage and heals one of your Pokemon. I would give this card a 3 out of 5 because it is average overall. I like the fact it increases water and fire type's moves and that it does a fair amount of damage for free but I don't like that it only has 80 hp and that it does require 3 energy cards to do Solarbeam, which is too many energy cards for a Pokemon with such low hp. So thanks for reading today's review of Cherrim from the Stormfront set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Drapion from the same set.

Typo at the end. You said water and fire types. When it should be Grass and Fire. Cherrim is a pretty decent card. I was thinking of using it in a Yanmega deck I am working on.

Yea, I noticed that you said "Water and Fires" when I thought it should be Grass and Fires. But either way that's a pretty decent card. It helps that its move heals Pokemon and has no Energy Costs too.
