Pokemon Card of the Day: Beautifly (Platinum)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Beautifly from the Platinum set. This is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon, with an hp of 120. It has a +30 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a free retreat cost. Beautifly doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Colorful Powder and for one grass energy card it does 20 damage. Depending on the amount of energy cards attached to Beautifly when you use this move it does different things, if you have two or less energy cards attached to Beautifly the defending Pokemon is poisoned, if you have three energy cards attached the defending Pokemon is burned and poisoned, and if you have four cards attached to Beautifly, the defending Pokemon has 40 more damage done to it and it is asleep, burned, and poisoned. Beautifly's second move is called Silver Scale which takes one grass energy card and does 30 damage unless the defending Pokemon has a resistance then it does 60 damage instead of 30. As far as strategy goes I like how this card is extremely quick for a stage 2 Pokemon and with one energy card it can do damage no matter what, I would try and get four energy cards on it so I can do three special conditions at once but I would stick to Colorful Powder the first turn and then use Silver Scale the next or until the special condition wears off. I would give this card a four out of 5 because it can do so many special conditions and it can retreat for free, so you can move this Pokemon in to cause havoc and then move it out the next turn for free. And even if this card stays in it should be able to last for awhile with 120 hp and the ability to make the defending Pokemon asleep. So thanks for reading today's review of Beautifly from the Platinum set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Blissey from the same set.
