Pokemon Card of the Day: Liepard (Black and White)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Liepard from the Black and White set. This is a stage 1, darkness type Pokemon that evolves from Purrloin. It has an hp of 80, a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Liepard doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Taunt which lets you switch the defending Pokemon with one of your opponent's benched Pokemon for one colorless energy cards. Liepard's second move is called Sucker Punch and for two colorless energy cards, it does 30 damage plus 20 more damage if Liepard has any darkness energy cards attached to it. So as far as strategy goes, you can use this card in pretty much any deck since both of its moves require colorless energy cards. If I were to use this card I would probably use Taunt and put in a Pokemon that I would be able to knock out the following turn with one of my benched Pokemon. I would just retreat Liepard after using Taunt and let a more powerful Pokemon take care of the knocking out of Pokemon. I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. Other than being able to switch your opponent's Pokemon, this card can't do much damage at all and with only 80 hp it won't be able to last that long in play either. So thanks for reading today's review of Liepard from the Black and White set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Scrafty from the same set.
