Pokemon Card of the Day: Kricketune (Platinum)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Kricketune from the Platinum set. This is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a +20 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Kricketune doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Revenge Melody and for two colorless energy cards it does 20 damage times the number of Kricketot and Kricketune in your discard pile. Kricketune's other move is called Bug Buzz and takes two grass energy cards and does 50 damage unless the defending Pokemon is asleep then it does 80 damage instead of 50. So as far as strategy goes this card requires a lot for it to do any damage at all, for starters you'll want to have more than one Kricketune in your deck and you'll have to have one in the active Pokemon spot that won't be able to use Revenge Melody at all if there hasn't been any necessary Pokemon knocked out yet. Also you'll want to have a card in your deck that makes the defending Pokemon go to sleep so you can do 80 damage when using Bug Buzz. I would give this card a 1 out of 5, to me this card is absolutely horrible. There is nothing special about this card at all and if you don't play other cards before it this card can do absolutely nothing except for give your opponent a prize card. So thanks for reading today's review of Kricketune from the Platinum set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Lickilicky from the same set.
