Pokemon Card of the Day: Electric Type Magnezone (Stormfront)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is the electric type Magnezone from the Stormfront set. This is a stage 2, electric type Pokemon, with an hp of 120. It has a +30 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a retreat cost of 3 colorless energy cards. Its Poke-Power, called Super Connectivity is quite similar to the Magnezone I reviewed yesterday, except this Poke-Power allows you to search your discard pile for any electric or metal type energy card and attach it to your active Pokemon, if you do this you then have to put 10 damage on that active Pokemon. Magnezone's only move is called Gyro Ball and does the standard 60 damage for 3 energy cards, in this case, one electric and two colorless. Besides doing the damage you may switch Magnezone with one of your benched Pokemon, if you choose to do this, your opponent may do the same. As far as strategy goes I would highly recommend using this card with the Magnezone I used yesterday, not only do they share the same evolutions, but you could use the Metal Type Magnezone's move that does 80 damage but then have to discard an energy card one turn, and then use this Magnezone's Poke-Power the next turn and be able to use Crush Volt again the consecutive turn. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because it has an average move, that makes up for its high retreat cost, and I really like its Poke-Power that works well with Pokemon that are electric or metal type and discard energy cards. So thanks for reading today's review of the electric type Magnezone from the Stormfront set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Mismagius from the same set.
