Pokemon Card of the Day: Dialga G (Platinum)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Dialga G from the Platinum set. This is a basic, metal type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. Before I get too far into the review if you don't know what the G means in Dialga G or you don't know what an SP Pokemon is click here to watch a video of mine explaining what they are. Dialga G has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Dialga G doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Deafen which takes one each of metal and colorless energy cards and does 10 damage and prevents your opponent from playing any trainer or stadium cards the next turn. Dialga's second move is called Second Strike and for three energy cards, two colorless and one metal, Dialga does 50 damage unless the defending Pokemon has at least 20 damage on it then this move does 70 instead of 50. As far as strategy goes I would not use this card without using Diala G Lv. X because this card isn't very good on its own. I wish this card's first move would have been twenty damage then you could do 70 damage with Second Strike every move instead of having to wait until you get three energy cards on Dialga to do more than 10 damage or having to use Deafen twice. I would give this card a 2 out of 5 because to me this card isn't very good. It doesn't do anything special and it is way too slow, it can only do 10 damage for two energy cards when most basic Pokemon that evolve can do 20 or 30 damage for one energy card. Like I said make sure and use this card with Dialga G Lv. X if you use it at all, I would recommend either of the Dialga's I reviewed the past two days before this card, just know that you can only use Dialga G Lv. X with this card. So thanks for reading today's review of Dialga G from the Platinum set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Gardevoir from the same set.
