Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Jellicent from the Next Destinies set. This is a Stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Jellicent doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Vengeful Wish and for one colorless energy card, this move does whatever amount of damage was done to Jellicent the previous turn. Jellicent's second move is called Absorb Life which takes three energy cards, two water and one colorless, and does 30 damage plus heals 30 damage from Jellicent.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, you may want to have one of these cards in your deck just in case your opponent has a Pokemon that has a really good attack, as long as that move is below 120 damage, you can go against that Pokemon with Jellicent and use Vengeful Wish and do the same amount of damage right back to the Pokemon who attacked you. Hopefully doing that will knock out the opposing Pokemon so you can use Absorb Life the next turn and heal some damage on Jellicent. So strategy-wise, if the defending Pokemon isn't very good, I would keep Jellicent on my bench.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. This is one of those cards that really depends on the defending Pokemon to be any good. I personally don't like Jellicent's Absorb Life move, I think it doesn't do enough damage for three energy cards and with 120 hp, getting 30 of it back isn't that significant. So that is why I rate this card a little lower than average.
