Pokemon Card of the Day: Swanna (Black and White)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Swanna from the Black and White set. This is a stage 1, water type Pokemon that evolves from Ducklett. It has an hp of 90, a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Swanna has two moves, the first move is called Feather Dance which requires one colorless energy card and increases Swanna's attack power by 40 the next turn. Swanna's second move is called Aqua Ring and for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, does 40 damage and you then have to switch this Pokemon with one of your benched Pokemon. So as far as strategy goes this card is pretty straightforward, you'll have to use Feather Dance the first turn to increase attacks by 40 and then Aqua Ring the next turn to do 80 damage and then switch Swanna out of the active Pokemon spot. The only thing you'll want to watch for is that Swanna can last two turns without being knocked out, if it can't you'll have to do Aqua Ring when its attack is only 40 and then switch it that turn. I would give this card a 2 out of 5. There really isn't a point to this card because if you want to do big damage you'll have to wait two turns and if you want to attack right away you'll have to switch Swanna out of the active Pokemon spot right away, so if you do use this card make sure to have your benched Pokemon ready to go into play. So thanks for reading today's review of Swanna from the Black and White set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Galvantula from the same set.
