Pokemon Card of the Day: Stoutland (Black and White)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Stoutland from the Black and White set. This is a stage 2, normal type Pokemon that is the final evolution of Lillipup. It has an hp of 140, a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. It has two moves like most of the Black and White cards have had so far, its first moe is called Odor Sleuth and for two colorless energy cards it allows you to flip 3 coins and for each heads you may move a card from your discard pile to your hand. Stoutland's second move is called Giga Impact and for four colorless energy cards it does 90 damage however it cannot attack the next turn. As far as strategy goes I could see using this card as a way to get cards you need to use over and over again back into your hand, so if you have a Pokemon that discards a lot of energy cards you could use this card to get three energy cards into your hand at once. The only downfall to this card is that it is a stage 2 Pokemon so it seems like a waste to use this card for only that purpose. Giga Impact is a good move but it should be stronger for a stage 2 Pokemon. That is why I am giving this card a 2 out of 5, I think that if this card was a stage 1 Pokemon card it would be great but since it is a stage 2 I have to give it a below average score. So thanks for reading today's review of Stoutland from the Black and White set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Unfezant from the same set.
