Pokemon Card of the Day: Weavile G (Platinum)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Weavile G from the Platinum set. This is a basic, sp Pokemon, Weavile G is a darkness type Pokemon with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a free retreat cost. Weavile G doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Call for Family and for no energy at all you may search your deck for up to two basic Pokemon sp and put them onto your bench. Weavile G's second move is called Team Attack and for three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness, Weavile G does 10 damage plus 10 more damage for each Pokemon SP you have in play. So as far as strategy goes you would definitely want to use this card in a deck with plenty of SP Pokemon in it so you can actually utilize both of its moves. When you put Weavile G into the active Pokemon spot you'll want to use Call for Family first and then Team Attack second, but even if you have a full bench, Team Attack can still only do 60 damage which is standard for most Pokemon. I would give this card a 1 out of 5, in my opinion this card is absolutely terrible without other SP Pokemon and even with them it requires them too much and will take up too much of your deck with SP Pokemon that usually aren't very good and are very slow. The only good thing about this card is that it can get Pokemon onto your bench and then retreat for free the next turn without requiring any energy cards at all. So thanks for reading today's review of Weavile G from the Platinum set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Altaria from the same set.
