Pokemon Card of the Day: Throh (Black and White)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Throh from the Black and White set. This is a basic, fighting type Pokemon with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Throh doesn't have an Ability, but it does have two moves, its first move is called Circle Throw which takes two energy cards, one each of colorless and fighting and does 30 damage plus makes your opponent switch their defending Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon. Throh's second move is called Storm Throw which takes 3 energy cards, one colorless and two fighting, and does 80 damage. So as far as strategy goes, this is a fairly fast, fighting Pokemon that delivers ferocious attacks. Just make sure you have the necessary energy in place before putting this card into the active Pokemon spot since it only has 100 hp but even if you are forced to play this card right away it should fair nicely. I would obviously prefer using Storm Throw over Circle Throw but if your opponent only has weaker Pokemon on their bench or Pokemon with high retreat costs definitely use Circle Throw. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5. Nothing really stands out to me with this card, both moves are good and can be used every time but without an ability to set it apart this is an average Pokemon card. So thanks for reading today's review of Throh from the Black and White set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Sawk from the same set.
