Pokemon Card of the Day: Giratina (Platinum 10/127)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Giratina from the Platinum set, this is a different version of Giratina than I reviewed yesterday. This Giratina is a basic, psychic type Pokemon with an hp of 100 just like yesterday. This one has a x2 weakness to dark type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to normal type Pokemon, a three colorless energy card retreat cost. However this card doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Over Slash which takes two colorless energy cards and does 10 damage to each of your opponent's Pokemon. Giratina's second move is called Wrack Down and does the standard 60 damage for three energy cards, in Giratina's case one psychic and two colorless energy cards. As far as strategy goes I would definitely recommend using the Giratina from yesterday over this one, with either Giratina I would make sure to use Giratina Lv. X with it as well. I would consider putting this Giratina card in a spread damage type since it does do spread damage and it is a basic Pokemon card thus it will be able to attack as soon as you get two energy cards on it. Since this card is so simple I have to give it a two out of five. It is definitely worse than Giratina from yesterday and it doesn't have any special powers like the one from yesterday. So thanks for reading today's review of Giratina, the second one from the Platinum set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Manectric from the same set.
