Pokemon Card of the Day: Alomomola (Black and White)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Alomomola from the Black and White set. This is a basic, water type Pokemon with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Alomomola has two moves, the first move is called Water Pulse and for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, it does 20 damage plus it puts the defending Pokemon to sleep. Alomomola's second move is called Hydro Pump and for three colorless energy cards, it does 40 damage plus 10 more damage for each water energy cards attached to Alomomola not used for this move. As far as strategy goes, I would definitely try and put the defending Pokemon to sleep first with Water Pulse, what I would have done next is to retreat Alomomola, but since it has such a high retreat cost, I will have to keep it in the active Pokemon spot and use it until it is knocked out, or find a way to retreat it without having to give up three energy cards. I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. The only thing I like about this card is that it can put the defending Pokemon asleep. Neither of its moves do much damage and there is no way I would waste a lot of energy cards on this card to increase Hydro Pump's base damage. So thanks for reading today's review of Alomomola from the Black and White set. Stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Zebstrika from the same set.

Dude, this is a basic pokemon with 100 hp. It deals low damage but puts the other pokemon to sleep without flipping a coin. The second attack has the potential to deal a lot of damage too. It doesn't matter if it has high retreat cost or doesn't have resistance. It is a fast pokemon with nice attacks. Very underrated.
