Pokemon Card of the Day: Galvantula (Black and White)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Galvantula from the Black and White set. This is a stage 1, electric type Pokemon that evolves from Joltik. Galvantula has an hp of 80, a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Galvantula has two moves, the first move is called Electroweb and for one electric energy card it does 20 damage plus the defending Pokemon can't retreat during their next turn. Galvantula's second move is called Leech Life and for two colorless energy cards it does 40 damage and removes the same amount of damage you did to the defending from Galvantula. So as far as strategy goes I would recommend using Leech Life every turn. That way, even though Galvantula has a low hp for a stage 1, it should be able to last quite awhile by always healing itself. I definitely wouldn't make this card the foundation of your deck but it could be a nice role player. Its role could be stalling the game so you can set up more powerful Pokemon on your bench, and since this card only requires one energy card to retreat you could stall with this card and retreat it when you have a more powerful Pokemon on your bench ready to battle. I would give this card a 3 out of 5. There is nothing special about this card, just overall a decent card that can hold its own in play. So thanks for reading today's review of Galvantula from the Black and White set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Musharna from the same set.
