Pokemon Card of the Day: Metal Type Magnezone (Stormfront)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is the metal type Magnezone from the Stormfront set. This is a stage 2, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120. It has a +30 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Poke-Power is called Magnetic Search and says that once during your turn you may search your deck for an electric or metal type Pokemon and put it into your hand. Besides the Poke-Power, Magnezone has two moves, the first move is called Speed Shot which takes two energy cards, one each of colorless and electric, and does 30 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon. Magnezone's second move is called Crush Volt which does 80 damage for 3 energy cards, one electric and two colorless. Besides the damage, unfortunately you have to remove an energy card from Magnezone when using it. As far as strategy goes you want to notice that this card may be metal type but it does not need any metal energy cards, so you'll want to have this in an electric deck for sure. But if you want to utilize its Poke-Power you could have both metal and electric in this deck and be able to get those Pokemon into your hand whenever you like with Magnezone's Poke-Power. Neither move of Magnezone is too great, but you could utilize a spread damage type strategy by using Speed Shot on one of your opponent's benched Pokemon but I would mainly use Crush Volt and just make sure to have another energy card in my hand to attach to it the next turn so I could use the move again. I would give this card a 3 out of 5 because like I said earlier, neither of its moves are too great but its Poke-Power makes it an average card. So thanks for reading today's review of the metal type Magnezone from Stormfront, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of the electric type Magnezone from the same set.
