Pokemon Card of the Day: Ludicolo (Platinum)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Ludicolo from the Platinum set. This is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 120. It has a +30 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Poke-Power is called Cheerful Voice and it says that once per turn you can use this power if you do choose to use it your turn ends and the next turn all of Ludicolo's attacks does 60 more damage. Ludicolo has two moves, its first move is called Mad Dance and for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless it does 20 damage plus the defending Pokemon is confused. Ludicolo's second move is called Best Dance and requires 3 energy cards, two colorless and one grass, and does the standard 60 damage. Plus, besides doing the damage, you may remove however much damage you did to the defending Pokemon from Ludicolo. So as far as strategy goes, I would recommend using this card in a water and grass deck, that way you'd be able to use both of Ludicolo's moves. Depending on the strength of my opponent I would either use Ludicolo's Poke-Power first or confuse it first with Mad Dance, but more than likely I would evoke its Poke-Power. I would actually give this card a 5 out of 5, I say this for a couple of reasons, one is that Ludicolo can heal itself it really has a much higher hp then 120 as long as the defending Pokemon has a move that can do 120 damage in one turn. I would try my hardest with my card to get it into play as fast as possible so you could use Cheerful Voice without having to receive that much damage from my opponent when making to attack the next turn. So thanks for reading today's review of Ludicolo from the Platinum set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Luvdisc from the same set.
