Pokemon Card of the Day: Blissey (Platinum)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Blissey from the Platinum set. This is a stage 1, normal type Pokemon card with an hp of 120. It has a +30 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Poke-Power is called Nurse Call and says that once per turn you may discard a card from your hand and remove 2 damage counters from one of your Pokemon. Besides the Poke-Power, Blissey has two moves, the first move is called Return which takes one colorless energy card and does 20 damage and it also allows you to draw cards until you have six cards in your hand. Blissey's second move is called Double-Edge and for four colorless energy cards it does 100 damage, however Blissey does 60 damage to itself when you use this move. As far as strategy goes I would recommend keeping this card on your bench as long as possible to heal Pokemon with its Poke-Power. But I would stay away from putting it into the active Pokemon spot because it can't do much damage unless you put four energy cards on it and you would only be able to use that move two turns until you would feint. So this card would work best to sit on the bench the entire game until each player has a few prize cards left, then you can move Blissey in only if it has the four energy cards on it and hope that you can knock out 2 Pokemon before your opponent gets the prize cards they need to win. I would give this card a 3 out of 5 because it definitely can help out your team by being the team doctor but it doesn't do much attack wise and requires a drastic amount of energy if you do want to attack but I definitely think its healing power makes this card an average card. So thanks for reading today's review of Blissey from the Platinum set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of another Dialga card from the Platinum set.
