Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Aggron from the Rising Rivals set. This is a stage 2, metal type Pokemon with an hp of 130. It has a +30 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Aggron doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have three moves, its first move is called Return Blow and for two colorless energy cards it does the same amount of damage it received last turn from your opponent to your opponent's Pokemon. Aggron's second move is called Metal Fang and for three energy cards, one metal and two colorless, it does 40 damage and you may discard the top card off your deck and if you do you may remove all special conditions and 2 damage counters from Aggron. Aggron's third move is called Heavy Impact and does 70 damage for four energy cards, two each of metal and colorless.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
As far as strategy goes with this card I would suggest setting it up on my bench and when my opponent would bring out a Pokemon that has an extremely high attack I would switch Aggron in and use Return Blow, this move could potentially do 120 damage to the defending Pokemon and hopefully knock it out. Depending on what happens next, you could always use Metal Fang and restore some health on Aggron.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would rate this card a 3 out of 5. It is a little above average but not that far above. I do like how it can do a lot of damage with Return Blow, so just having it on this card will probably prevent your opponent from using major attacks on your Pokemon. Also I do like that it has three moves so you have a wide variety of things to choose from, however all three moves require a fair amount of energy and to retreat Aggron is a little expensive.
