Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pelipper from the Arceus set. This is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a +20 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Pelipper doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Water Pulse and for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless it does 30 damage and puts the defending Pokemon to sleep. Pelipper's other move is called Continuous Crush which takes four energy cards, two each of water and colorless, and does 70 damage. Besides doing the damage you can flip a coin until you get tails, however many heads you get that is how many energy cards you may discard from your opponent's active Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, it really depends on how many energy cards you have on Pelipper, I would recommend getting four energy cards on Pelipper before putting it into the active Pokemon spot but if you have to put that Pokemon out earlier, I would use Water Pulse first to put the defending Pokemon asleep and then take a turn or two to get four energy cards on Pelipper and use Continuous Crush most of the time after that. Just make sure not to try and put four energy cards on Pelipper if it has a fair amount of damage on it already because this card only has 90 hp it won't take too long to get knocked out, especially if the defending Pokemon isn't asleep.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. I like how this card can inflict a special condition and do a lot of damage, most importantly with a bit of luck you may prevent one of your opponent's most powerful Pokemon from being able to attack by removing numerous energy cards from it when you use Continuous Crush. However this card is slow and has a low hp for a card that requires four energy cards to attack.
