Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gothitelle from the Emerging Powers set. This is the second of two Gothitelle cards from this set. This is a stage 2, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. It doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Smack which does 30 damage for one psychic energy card. Gothitelle's other move is called Mental Shock which does 60 damage for three energy cards, in this case, one psychic, and two colorless energy cards. Besides doing the damaage, you may flip a coin when you use this move, if you get a heads the defending Pokemon is now confused, you you flip a tails the defending Pokemon must have an energy card discarded from it.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this card is quite a bit quicker than the last Gothitelle card I reviewed. You only need one energy card to attack with this card, I would consider using this card with other Pokemon that inflict special conditions so that the defending Pokemon would always be inflicted no matter which Pokemon in your deck you attack with.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. I definitely like the other Gothitelle card better, this one is very average, it has an average to low hp, average moves, and a decent retreat cost. I wish Mental Shock would have required only two energy cards instead of three.
