Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Persian from the Next Destinies set. This is a Stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Persian doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Nasty Plot and for one colorless energy card you may search your deck for a card and put it into your hand. Persian's second move is called Shadow Claw which takes two colorless energy cards and does 30 damage to the defending Pokemon and if you get a heads when you flip a coin you may discard one of your opponent's cards from their hand.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a colorless type Pokemon, it can work in any deck. However since this card doesn't have an Ability there really isn't anything special about this card. You can put this card into play and then choose one of the two moves to use, obviously if you would like to do some damage when attacking you'll have to use Shadow Claw, but if you need an energy card or evolution card you can use Nasty Plot. I would prefer to put supporters in my deck instead of a Stage 1 card that acts as a Trainer card.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. This card is definitely below average. In my opinion this card is worse than the Wigglytuff card I reviewed yesterday. I could see potentially using this card if it was a basic Pokemon but since it is Stage 1, I will be staying away from it.
Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Persian from the Next Destinies set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Regigigas EX from the same set.
