Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Amoonguss from the Next Destinies set. This is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon, and a 2 colorless energy card retreat cost (All of these things seem awfully eery to yesterday's review). Amoonguss's Ability is called Sporprise which says that when you play Amoonguss from your hand to evolve one of your Pokemon, if you choose to use this Ability, your opponent's active Pokemon is both confused and poisoned. Besides the Ability, Amoonguss has one move called Rising Lunge which takes two energy cards, one each of grass and colorless and does 20 damage, however if you get a heads when you flip a coin this move does 30 more damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, if you were to use this card in your deck, you would want to choose a very strategic time to evolve Foonguss into Amoonguss so you could make the greatest impact on your opponent's active Pokemon using Amoonguss's Ability. I would include this card in a grass type deck that includes a lot of Pokemon that can poison and confuse the defending Pokemon, as well as spread damage around. Once you get Amoonguss in, you'll just have to roll with Rising Lunge every turn and hope for that heads.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. This card has a great Ability, but that Ability can only be used once, and once the Ability is used, this card can't do much else, especially if luck isn't on your side. I personally wouldn't use this card in my deck, but if you do, I would only use a 2-1 line with Foonguss.
Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Amoonguss from the Next Destinies set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Arcanine from the same set.
