Pokemon Card of the Day: Scolipede (Black and White)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Scolipede from the Black and White set. This is a stage 2, psychic type Pokemon that is the final evolution of Venipede. It has a 150 hp, a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Scolipede has two moves both requiring a lot of energy, its first move is called Steamroller which does the standard 3 energy cards for 60 damage. In this case Scolipede requires three colorless energy cards. Scolipede's second move is called Poison Claws and for four energy cards, two each of psychic and colorless, it does 80 damage plus it poisons the defending Pokemon. As far as strategy goes, since Scolipede requires so much energy for both of its moves you'll want to set it up on your bench before you put it into play, you'll want to always use Poison Claws when you get four energy cards on Scolipede, but I guess if you really wanted to you could put this card into any type deck and just use Steamroller but I wouldn't suggest doing that at all. I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating, I was going to give this card much worse since it is so slow and requires so much energy but it does have an hp of 150 hp so even if you're forced to play this card early it should last okay and you should be able to use Poison Claws at least once. So thanks for reading today's review of Scolipede from the Black and White set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Stoutland from the same set.
