Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lilligant from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set. Lilligant is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Lilligant does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, its first move is called Return, this move requires one colorless energy card and does 20 damage and allows you to draw cards until you have 6 cards in your hand. Lilligant's second move is called Magical Leaf and for three energy cards, two colorless and one grass, this move does 50 damage plus 30 more damage and heals 30 damage from Lilligant if you get a heads when you flip a coin.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lilligant is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Petilil into play (I reviewed Petilil from this set yesterday) and then evolve Petilil into Lilligant. If you read yesterday's review, I would only recommend using Petilil on its own or moving it into the active Pokemon spot right away if you can get it in the active Pokemon spot immediately at the start of the game or you have many other Pokemon in your deck that can inflict special conditions. I would suggest getting Lilligant on your bench, attaching three energy cards to it and then moving it into the active Pokemon spot at an appropriate time. If you have three energy cards on Lilligant I would suggest using Magical Leaf every turn, it is a below average move normally, but if you get a heads every other turn the move is actually quite good. You may want to put a lot of stage 2 Pokemon in your deck so that you can always be evolving Pokemon and never have very many Pokemon cards in your hand, that way you could actually benefit by using Return to replenish your hand and do 20 damage. But like I said, I would stick with Magical Leaf unless you don't have enough energy cards attached to Lilligant to use it. I would use a 2-1 or 1-1 line of Petilil and Lilligant in a partly grass type deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, I think Lilligant is a pretty average stage 1 Pokemon card. The only two things I don't really like about the card are its hp which is too low, and Magical Leaf which does 50 damage instead of the normal 60 damage for three energy cards, but if you do get some Magic and flip a heads this move is actually quite good and an above average move. I also like that this card has a low retreat cost and the fact it does have two moves, the quick move and another move that takes a bit more time to setup. So overall, both Pokemon in this line are average cards in this set, so obviously overall the Pokemon line gets a 3 out of 5 rating. This line doesn't have to be a staple in every grass type deck but it could be a role player type line and help your deck some, but you won't miss it too much if you're not using it.
