Pokemon Card of the Day: Serperior (Black and White)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Serperior from the Black and White set. This is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon and the final evolution of Snivy. It has an hp of 130, a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon and free retreat costs. Serperior doesn't have an ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Vine Whip which does 40 damage for only two colorless energy cards. Serperior's second move is called Leaf Storm which does 60 damage for two grass energy cards and it also heals each of your grass Pokemon removing 20 damage each from them. As far as strategy goes I would recommend using this card in a mostly grass deck so you could heal the most Pokemon at once. I would recommend keeping this card on your bench until you have retreated all of your other Pokemon, therefore all your benched Pokemon have damage on them, then you can use Serperior two or three turns in a row using Leaf Storm each turn and removing the bulk of the damage from your benched Pokemon. And the good thing about this card is that it has a free retreat cost so you can move this card into and out of play whenever you like to heal your Pokemon and do a fair amount damage. I am going to give this card a 5 out of 5, I haven't reviewed too many Black and White cards yet but this one seems pretty good, it has a good hp, no retreat cost, and is extremely fast only requiring two energy cards maximum to attack. So thanks for reading today's review of Serperior from the Black and White set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Sawsbuck from the same set.
