Card of the Day Review - Serperior (Black & White 6)
I am back. Volcachu here with another review and this time, it will be on another final evolution of one of the Black and White starter Pokémon. Today's card is Serperior, the evolved form of Servine and Snivy. I would nickname this Pokémon as the healer. I will explain more indepth about that later.
First of all, Serperior is a Stage 2 Pokémon with a total of 130 HP. The health is average among all Stage 2. It has a double weakness to Fire-Types so you should be careful against those decks that run Emboars. This Pokémon also has a resistance against Water-Types with 20 but not too many people are running Water decks these days except Blastoise decks. The retreat cost is very low at one, so this is an added bonus.
Serperior is getting a lot of hype because of its ability. The ability is called Royal Heal and it heals all of your Pokémon for 10 HP in between turns. That is 20 HP healed by the time it is your turn again. If you have more than 1 Serperiors on your bench, it will be hard for your opponent to kill your Active Pokémon. Especially if you have a Donphan Prime which already blocks 20 damage. Your opponent will most likely have to one hit your Pokémon to win. With this ability, Serperior is a healer and it keeps your side of the field very healthy.
Serperior has one single attack and it is called Leaf Tornado. This attack only needs a Grass Energy and any other Energy which is very little for an attack that does 60 damage. The added effect to this attack is that you can move the Grass Energies on your side of the field and rearrange them to other Pokémon however you like. The effect to the attack is not mandatory so it is really up to the user.
Serperior is a solid Pokémon with average health and a fairly good attack. It can heal you Pokémon for free and it is very effective. I give this card a solid 4.5 out of 5 and the reason for the missing .5 is because there is not a good variety in attacks. Serperior usually never seens combat and stays on the bench to heal. This is a very good tech card and it can be used in many decks. Try out this card and tell me how it goes. Enjoy the rest of your day!
