Pokemon Card of the Day: Samurott (Black and White 32/114)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Samurott from the Black and White set. This is the second version of Samurott I have reviewed from the Black and White set. Samurott is a stage 2, water type Pokemon and the final evolution of starter Pokemon Oshawott. It has an hp of 140, a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Samurott's Ability is called Shell Armor and says that any attacks done to Samurott are reduced by 20. Besides the Ability, Samurott has one move called Hydro Pump which takes three colorless energy cards and does 70 damage plus 10 more damage for each water energy card attached to Samurott. As far as strategy goes, it is extremely straightforward. I would put Samurott into play as soon as possible and start using Hydro Pump, if you want you can even put three water energy cards on Samurott and do 100 damage a turn. I would give this card a 4 out of 5. It has the potential to do a lot of damage with only three energy cards and at the same time should be able to last quite awhile with its ability reducing each of your opponent's attacks by 20 on Samurott. So thanks for reading today's review of Samurott from the Black and White set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Alomomola from the same set.

You are forgetting that if the 3 energy cards is water then it will do 100 damage with 3 energy

@eric I think when I reviewed this card I was only looking at the translation which wasn't exactly the same as this card, but thanks for letting me know, I changed it for you to include it being able to do 100 damage.
