Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Claydol from the Supreme Victors set. This is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a +20 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Claydol does not have a Poke-Body or Poke-Power but it does have two moves. Its first move is called Antique Magic and for two colorless energy cards, it can do 30 damage any way it likes to any Pokemon in play, both yours and your opponents. Claydol's second move is called Synchro Attack which takes two psychic energy cards and does 30 damage, unless both you and the defending Pokemon have the same hp left then this move does 90 instead of 30.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, if you really want to make Antique Magic work, I would suggest finding a card that has a move that moves all damage from your benched Pokemon to your opponent's benched Pokemon or something like that, that way when you use Antique Magic you can just put the damage on your own Pokemon and then retreat Claydol out and use that Pokemon that benefits from having your own benched Pokemon damaged. You could also first use Antique Magic to set up Synchro Attack so that the next turn Claydol's move will do 90 instead of 30.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. There is a lot of strategy involved in this card and a bit of luck too to get matching hp amounts left on both active Pokemon. But if you can achieve this, this card is great, and if you can't this card isn't good at all. That is why I decided to give this card an average rating with a 3 out of 5.
