Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gothitelle from the Emerging Powers set. This is the first of two consecutive Gothitelle card reviews from this set. This is a stage 2, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Ability is called Magic Room and says that your opponent can't play any Item cards while Gothitelle is your active Pokemon. Besides the Ability, Gothitelle's only move is called Madkinesis which takes three colorless energy cards and does 30 damage plus 20 more damage for each psychic energy card attached to it. So this move has the potential to do 90 damage if you have three psychic energy cards attached to Gothitelle.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, once you get this card into play, there isn't much strategy with the card, since it only has the one move. I would definitely try and attach as many psychic energy cards to this card as you can, that way Madkinesis will do major damage every turn. If your opponent does normally use a lot of items in their deck this card will be very effective against that opponent. If you are trying to use this card solely for the Ability, you'll want to keep this card in the active Pokemon spot as long as possible and use Potions and other HP restoring cards to keep Gothitelle out as long as possible.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. Even though there isn't much strategy with this card, I like that it has a fairly good hp and can do 90 damage a turn if you only attach psychic type energy cards to it, the longer you keep this card on your bench and the more psychic type energy cards you attach to this card the more damage it can do and the easier it will be for this card to one hit KO your opponent's Pokemon.
