Pokemon Card of the Day: Shaymin (Platinum 15/127)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Shaymin from the Platinum set. This is card number fifteen of one twenty seven and this is a basic, grass type Pokemon, with an hp of 80 which is more than the card from yesterday, this card also doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves. Shaymin's first move is called Growth and for no energy cards at all you can attach an energy card from your hand to Shaymin. Shaymin's second move is called Air Slash and for two colorless energy cards you can do 40 damage but you have to flip a coin when you use this move and if you get a tails you have to discard an energy card attached to Shaymin. As far as strategy goes this would be another starter card, you could have this card be your first Pokemon in play and then be able to attach a grass energy card to one of your Pokemon and then use Growth and attach another one to Shaymin so you'd then be able to attach two energy cards in a turn rather than two. After that you would obviously want to use Air Cutter and hope for a heads every turn. I would give this card a 2 out of 5 because it is definitely worse than the card I reviewed yesterday, the only positive thing about this card is that it has a little higher hp, but both of its moves are not good so I would definitely choose card number 14 over this card any day. So thanks for reading my card of the day review on Shaymin, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Weavile G from the same set.
