Pokemon Card of the Day: Bouffalant (Black and White)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Bouffalant from the Black and White set. This is a basic, normal type Pokemon with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Bouffalant doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Revenge and for two colorless energy cards, it does 20 damage plus 70 more damage if any of your Pokemon was knocked out last turn. Bouffalant's second move is called Head Charge which does 80 damage for four colorless energy cards, however you have to flip a coin when you use this move and if you get a tails, Bouffalant does 20 damage to itself. As far as strategy goes, I would prefer to keep Bouffalant on my bench and each time a Pokemon is knocked out I would move this card in and use Revenge and do 90 damage to that Pokemon. I would also try and retreat Bouffalant the very next turn, so make sure and find a way to do this so you don't have to discard two energy cards every time you want to use Revenge and then retreat Bouffalant. I wouldn't put four energy cards on this card however, to me it seems like too much for one move on a basic Pokemon, and to boot it does damage to itself which after two turns will be knocked out for sure if you are facing any stage 2 Pokemon. So I would rate this card a 3 out of 5. It is an average basic Pokemon card that has the ability to do a lot of damage but you'll have to wait to do major damage and if Bouffalant isn't coming in after a Pokemon was knocked out this card won't be that great. So thanks for reading today's review of Bouffalant from the Black and White set, this concludes the reviews of all the rare cards from the Black and White set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Blastoise from the Platinum set.
