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.
