Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Kricketune from the Next Destinies set. Since no one has recommended me any cards to review I am going to try and review all the uncommon cards from the Next Destinies set in the coming weeks and then move back sets in the Black and White series. I will be doing this until more Dark Explorers cards are released. Kricketune is a Stage 1, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Kricketune doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called White Noise and for one colorless energy card it does 20 damage plus puts the defending Pokemon to sleep. Kricketune's second move is called Draining Cut which takes two energy cards, one each of colorless and grass and does 40 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins. You can heal the same amount from Kricketune as you do damage to the opposing Pokemon with this move.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this is a very good stage 1 Pokemon card that I would recommend putting into the active Pokemon spot as soon as possible. Since its first move can put the defending Pokemon to sleep, I would use White Noise first, and then take your chances with Draining Cut, what I really like about this card is that even if the defending Pokemon wakes up, Draining Cut can easily regain any hp it needs to from your opponent's attack. I would get this card out early and keep it there as long as possible. I would also consider putting this card in just about every deck because it requires mostly colorless energy cards.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating. For an uncommon card this is a great one, so if you're looking to build a deck and want to use a card that isn't so rare or so expensive this would be a great card to include in your deck, I would include a 2-3 line of Kricketot and Kricketune. This wouldn't be the main card in my grass type deck but it definitely would be a big part of it.
Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Kricketune from the Next Destinies set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Arcanine from the same set.
