Pokemon Card of the Day: Dialga (Platinum 5/127)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Dialga from the Platinum set. This is a basic, metal type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Dialga's Poke-Power is called Reverse Time and this power says that when you put Dialga into play you may look through your discard pile and choose three cards from there besides Lv. X Pokemon and put those cards on the top of your deck in whatever order you like. Dialga's only move is called Time-Space Traveling and does 50 damage for three energy cards, two colorless and one metal. Besides doing the damage you may draw cards until you have seven in your hand. As far as strategy goes I would only use this card once in my deck for the Poke-Power so you could get back three cards at once instead of one card at a time with some trainers from the discard pile, and even with this Poke-Power you can only put these three cards on top of your deck so you can't get them immediately. If you plan on using a lot of trainers or supporters in your deck you may want to have this card in your deck to replenish your deck every turn when you use Time-Space Traveling but you'll definitely want to keep Dialga on your bench awhile before putting it into play since it is fairly slow especially for a basic Pokemon. I would rate this card a 2 out of 5 because for a Platinum set card it has a high weakness, and high retreat cost especially for a basic Pokemon. I also think that supporter/trainer cards could easily be a better fit in a deck and would help you more. So thanks for reading today's review of Dialga from the Platinum set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of a different Dialga card from the Platinum set.
