Pokemon Card of the Day: Lickilicky (Platinum)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Lickilicky from the Platinum set. This is a stage 1, normal type Pokemon card with an hp of 120. It has a +20 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a retreat cost of four colorless energy cards. Once again, this card doesn't have a Poke-Body or Poke-Power but it does have two moves, Lickilicky's first move is called Harrumph and for three colorless energy cards and it does 40 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon and it also removes all trainers attached to that Pokemon. Lickilicky's second move is called Body Press and for four colorless energy cards it does 60 damage and you may flip a coin when you use this move and if you flip a heads the defending Pokemon is paralyzed and you may discard an energy card from it. So as far as strategy goes, this card can go in any deck since it is a normal type, and you probably don't want to put it into play too fast since it requires a lot of energy cards to attack. But once you do have it in play you could use Harrumph with other spread damage Pokemon to finish those benched Pokemon off one by one. However this is another card that I would rate very poorly, I would give this card a 1 out of 5. Its retreat cost is way too high and for the amount of energy this card requires it sure doesn't do the damage it should, the only good thing about this card is that it does have 20 more hp than normal stage 1 Pokemon. So thanks for reading today's review of Lickilicky from the Platinum set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Ludicolo from the same set.
