Pokemon Card of the Day: Reuniclus (Black and White)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Reuniclus from the Black and White set. This is a stage 2, psychic type Pokemon that is the final evolution of Solosis. Reuniclus has an hp of 90, a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Ability is called Damage Swap and says that as often as you like during your turn you may move 1 damage counter from 1 of your Pokemon to another one of your Pokemon. Reuniclus's only move is called Psywave and for three psychic energy cards it does 30 damage plus 10 more damage for each energy card attached to the defending Pokemon. So as far as strategy goes, you'll want to use Reuniclus's ability if you want to keep a Pokemon alive longer. So if you have one or two Pokemon in your deck with a very high hp you can then move most of the damage counters from your damaged Pokemon to those high hp Pokemon. Other than that, there really isn't much else with this card, since it is a stage 2 Pokemon card I would have thought it would have been able to do more damage, and if not, I thought it would have been quicker. So I would only use this card for its ability. I would give this card a 2 out of 5. Other than the ability to save any Pokemon in play of your own, it can't do much else and I don't think I would waste that many cards in my deck just to get Reuniclus's Ability. So thanks for reading today's review of Reuniclus from the Black and White set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Throh from the same set.
