Pokemon Card of the Day: Lilligant (Black and White)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Lilligant from the Black and White set. This is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon that evolves from Petilil. It has an hp of 80, a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. It doesn't have any ability but it does have two moves. Lilligant's first move is called Petal Dance which does 30 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip three coins, this move requires one grass energy card and confuses Lilligant after the move. Lilligant's other move is called Leaf Storm which does 30 damage for two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless, and removes 2 damage counters each from each of your grass Pokemon. As far as strategy goes, I would recommend using this card with the Serperior card from yesterday, that way you could remove 30 damage each turn from each of your grass Pokemon, if you use Lilligant's Leaf Storm. I would recommend using Leaf Storm over Petal Dance because you can use this move every turn without worrying about confusing Lilligant. The only time I would consider using Petal Dance would be when I have to do big time damage or I would lose. I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. There are many positives and negatives about this card. It doesn't have the greatest hp and it does confuse itself if you want to do a lot of damage, and more than likely neither move will do that much damage. This card does have a low retreat cost and does heal your other grass Pokemon by 20 each turn which is great. So thanks for reading today's review of Lilligant from the Black and White set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Maractus from the same set.
