Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Spiritomb from the Arceus set. This is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 60. It has no weakness, a -20 resistance to colorless Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Spiritomb's Poke-Body is called Keystone Seal and says that as long as Spiritomb is your active Pokemon neither player can play trainer cards. Besides the Poke-Body, Spiritomb has two moves, the first move is called Darkness Grace and for no energy at all, you may search your deck for a Pokemon that evolves from one of your Pokemon and put it onto that Pokemon, if you do this, put one damage counter of Spiritomb. Spiritomb's second move is called Will-o-the-wisp which does 10 damage for one darkness energy card.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, there really is not a strategy with this card, it is just that bad. Usually Spiritomb is a great spread damage type Pokemon but this card can't do anything. If you do put it in your deck make sure to use its Poke-Body and then use Darkness Grace to evolve your Pokemon really quick. There is no reason to put any energy cards on this card since it only does 10 damage, just use it to evolve all your benched Pokemon. So I would recommend using this card with a deck that includes a lot of stage 1 and stage 2 Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. It is an extremely bad Pokemon card that can't do much damage at all. If you don't have any basic Pokemon or Stage 1 Pokemon on your bench that can be evolved this card has no value at all and deserves a 0 out of 5 ranking.
