Pokemon Card of the Day: Klinklang (Black and White)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Klinklang from the Black and White set. This is a stage 2, metal type Pokemon that is the final evolution of Klink. Klinklang has an hp of 140, a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Klinklang's Ability is called Shift Gear and says that as often as you like during your turn you may move a metal energy card attached to one of your Pokemon to another Pokemon. So this Ability is quite similar to Emboar's Ability that I reviewed awhile back. Klinklang's only move is called Gear Grind which takes three energy cards, one metal and two colorless, and does 80 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins. As far as strategy goes, this card is a must with any metal deck you may build. Not only does it make every Pokemon fast, it makes Klinklang able to do possibly 160 damage in one turn. I would rate this card a 4 out of 5. I really really like its Ability but since Metal type Pokemon aren't as popular as Fire type Pokemon, I don't think this Ability will be nearly as effective as the one dealing with fire energy cards. And you do risk when using this card that a stage 2 Pokemon may not be able to do any damage during a turn if you flip two tails when using Gear Grind. So thanks for reading today's review of Klinklang from the Black and White set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Bouffalant from the same set.
