Leavanny #8 -- Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Review

Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Leavanny from the Emerging Powers set. This is the second Leavanny card I've reviewed in the past two days. This is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon card, and it is the final evolution of Sewaddle. Leavanny has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. It is pretty much the same as the Leavanny card from yesterday in this regard. Leavanny doesn't have a Special Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Slash and for one colorless energy card, it does 30 damage. Leavanny's second move is called Triple Cutter and for 3 energy cards, one colorless and two grass energy cards, it does 60 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip three coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, I would definitely use this card as a big attacker in my deck. Even if you have below 50% luck, you are still bound to be able to do 120 damage every once in a while, and on average 1 out of 8 turns you won't be able to do any damage at all with Triple Cutter. Usually I don't like moves where you have to flip a coin, but this card does so much damage with that move that you have to use it, and even if you have to throw Leavanny out there before you have three energy cards on it, you can still use Slash and do a fair amount of damage.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. You can't do much else with this card except for attacking but that is exactly what I like to do. Just hope you are extra lucky when using this card and you should be able to knock out 2 or 3 Pokemon in a row with this card. And with 130 hp, Leavanny should be able to withstand a few critical hits from opponent's Pokemon.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Leavanny from the Emerging Powers set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Whimsicott from the Emerging Powers set.
