Pokemon Card of the Day: Giratina (Platinum 28/127)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Giratina from the Platinum set. This is a different version of Giratina than the card I reviewed yesterday, this is card 28 out of 127, yesterday's card was number 27 out of 127. So Giratina is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 110. It has a +30 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to colorless Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. This Giratina doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, its first move is called Dragon Claw which does 30 damage for two colorless energy cards. Giratina's second move is called Dragonbreath which does 80 damage for three energy cards, two psychic and one colorless. However you have to flip a coin when you use this move and if you get a tails this attack does nothing and if you get a heads the defending Pokemon is paralyzed. As far as strategy goes I wouldn't use this card at all I would definitely use a different Giratina card, I find it too risky to use Dragonbreath, I guess you could use Giratina as a starter Pokemon since it does do 30 damage every turn and it does have a good hp for a basic Pokemon but I would have thought a legendary Pokemon like Giratina would have been better. I would give this card a 1 out of 5, to me this card isn't good at all, and especially with other Giratina cards in this set you can find a better one than this. So thanks for reading today's review of Giratina from the Platinum set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Golduck from the same set.
