Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Milotic from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set. Milotic is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Milotic's Ability is called Sparkling Ripples and says that when you move Milotic from your hand to evolve Feebas, you may move a card from your discard pile back into your hand. Besides the Ability, Milotic just has one move called Aqua Swirl. This move requires three energy cards to use, two colorless and one water, and does 60 damage, plus you may have your opponent switch their active Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Milotic is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Feebas into play (I reviewed Feebas from this set yesterday) and then evolve Feebas into Milotic. If you read yesterday's review of Feebas, or really any Feebas review, you'll know that I thought that card was a very poor Basic Pokemon card, having an extremely low HP, and a poor move that may end up doing 10 damage to Feebas every turn. So knowing how poor Feebas is and looking at this Milotic card, if you choose to use this line in your deck, definitely don't use more than a 1-1 line of this family and definitely do not put Feebas into the active Pokemon spot, evolve this line on the bench. It would be best to include Milotic in a spread damage type deck, that way, you could get three energy cards on Milotic, and when using Aqua Swirl every turn, have your opponent switch out their active Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon, thus spreading damage around. After that, hopefully you have a card that does let's say 20 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon, and you can then knock out multiple Pokemon at once. The Ability of Milotic doesn't do too much for me, since it can really only be used one time.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set. I like a few things about this card overall, it has a high HP, and the move it does have, does do only average damage but I do like the fact you can have your opponent switch out their active Pokemon. But outside of those two things, this card isn't more than average, and if included with Feebas from this set, I can't give more than a 2 out of 5 rating, it is just so hard to use cards like Milotic and Gyarados when their Basic forms are so weak.
