Pokemon Card of the Day: Zebstrika (Black and White)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Zebstrika from the Black and White set. This is a stage 1, electric type Pokemon that evolves from Blitzle. It has an hp of 90, a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. It has two moves, the first move is called Rear Kick which does 30 damage for one colorless energy card. And Zebstrika's second move is called ElecSpark which takes three electric energy cards and does 70 damage plus 10 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon. So as far as strategy goes I would include this card in a deck that does spread damage so you can utilize ElecSpark as much as possible. Other than that, this card is quite quick and if you do get it into play right away at least you can do 30 damage for only one colorless energy card. I would give this card a 4 out of 5. The one thing I don't like about this card is that it can do so much damage but with only 90 hp you're going to have to find a way to keep this card in the game as long as possible. So make sure and do as much damage as you can with ElecSpark and the good thing about this card is that you can retreat it for one energy card and bring it back in later to destroy some more Pokemon. So thanks for reading today's review of Zebstrika from the Black and White set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Reuniclus from the same set.
