Pokemon Card of the Day: Drapion (Stormfront)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Drapion from the Stormfront set. This is a stage 1, dark type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110. It doesn't have a Poke-Body or Poke-Power but it does have three moves. Its first move is called Scorpion Grapple and for no energy cards it does 10 damage and you also flip a coin when you use this move, if heads the defending Pokemon is Paralyzed, if tails the defending Pokemon can't retreat during their next turn. Drapion's next move is called Cross Poison which takes two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip 4 coins, and if you get at least 2 heads, the defending Pokemon is now poisoned. Drapion's last move is called Derail and does the standard 60 damage for three energy cards, in this case, two darkness and one colorless. Besides the damage this move also makes your opponent remove all special energy cards attached to their active Pokemon. As far as strategy goes I would recommend putting this card in any type deck and just sticking with using Drapion's first two moves which have the potential to inflict special conditions on the defending Pokemon. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because it is good overall with three moves and a higher hp than most stage 1 Pokemon but none of its moves are spectacular, this would just be a good role player type Pokemon card. So thanks for reading today's review of Drapion from the Stormfront set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Drifblim from the same set.
