Pokemon Card of the Day: Scrafty (Black and White)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Scrafty from the Black and White set. This is a stage 1, darkness type Pokemon that evolves from Scraggy. It has an hp of 90, a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -30 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Scrafty doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Acid Hurl and does 20 damage for one darkness energy card and burns the defending Pokemon, and if you get a heads when you flip a coin the defending Pokemon is now paralyzed. Scrafty's second move is called Hi Jump Kick and does 70 damage for two darkness energy cards and one colorless energy card. So as far as strategy goes, I would actually prefer to use Acid Hurl first since it can inflict two special conditions. But if you can knock the defending Pokemon out in one move with Hi Jump Kick definitely go for it, but this is one of the cards I wouldn't be afraid to throw it into the active Pokemon spot with zero or one energy cards on it since it is fairly quick. I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating, like the last few reviews, this card can do a fair amount of damage but since it only has 90 hp, you won't be able to use Hi Jump Kick too many turns before Scrafty gets knocked out. So thanks for reading today's review of Scrafty from the Black and White set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Mandibuzz from the same set.
