Pokemon Card of the Day: Zoroark (Black and White)
Today's Pokemon Card of the day is Zoroark from the Black and White set. This is a stage 1, darkness type Pokemon with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Zoroark doesn't have any abilities but it does have two moves. The first move is called Nasty Plot and for one darkness energy card you are able to search your deck for a card and put it into your hand. Zoroark's second move is called Foul Play and for two colorless energy cards you can choose one of your opponent's attacks and use that attack as your own. So as far as strategy goes I would probably use this card in place of some Trainer's cards or other cards like that that let you search your deck for certain cards. I would probably keep this card on my bench most of the game unless my opponent would have a Pokemon out there that has a really powerful move, that way I could move Zoroark into play and use that move against the defending Pokemon and hopefully knock that Pokemon out. I would give this card a 3 out of 5 because it is average overall. I do like how Zoroark has a decent hp for a stage 1 Pokemon and that it has the ability to knock out Pokemon in one move, but the thing with this card is that it depends entirely on what Pokemon your opponent is playing, if they aren't playing any cards with great moves, Zoroark won't be very effective, but if that is the case you could always just use Nasty Plot to find a card that you want to use and switch Zoroark out of the active Pokemon spot. So thanks for reading today's review of Zoroark from the Black and White, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of another rare Pokemon card from the Black and White set.
