Pokemon Card of the Day: Dialga (Platinum 23/127)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Dialga from the Platinum set. This is a the third version of a regular Dialga card that I have reviewed from the Platinum set. This is a basic, metal type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a +30 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. It doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Energy Stream and for two colorless energy cards it does 20 damage and when you flip a coin if you get heads you may search your discard pile for an energy card and attached it to Dialga. Dialga's second move is called Diamond Blow and for four energy cards, three metal and one colorless, Dialga does 100 damage but cannot attack the next turn. This card is extremely straightforward in terms of strategy, if you put it into play before it has four energy cards on it you'll have to use Energy Stream first and obviously if the defending Pokemon would be knocked out with 20 damage or less you would definitely want to use Energy Stream instead of Diamond Blog. I would rate this card a 2 out of 5 because it isn't a very good card, even though it can do 100 damage, it takes a long time to get four energy cards on a Pokemon and you can only do it every 2 turns, so it basically does 50 damage a turn for four energy cards which isn't good at all. So if you're looking to use Dialga in your deck I would definitely not suggest this one. So thanks for reading today's review of Dialga from the Platinum set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Dugtrio from the same set.
