Pokemon ParadijsHello 6P. Today, I will be doing your COTD. I will be reviewing an interesting card in the form of Recover Energy from the Majestic Dawn expansion.
Recover Energy has never been considered a good card, so I’ll give you a rundown: Recover Energy provides one Colorless Energy. This is okay as it allows most cards to utilize Recover Energy. However, if you are only using Recover Energy for the Colorless typing, then Call Energy, Warp Energy, Rescue Energy, and Double Colorless Energy outclass it rather easily. It is a Special Energy, meaning that cards like Machamp Prime and Scizor Prime have an advantage over Pokémon with Recover Energy attached.
Recover Energy has an effect that states that when you attach Recover Energy to one of your Pokémon, you may remove all special conditions from that Pokémon. This may not seem like much but I believe there are a few decks that could make good use of Recover Energy.
PokeGymLeafeon UD received a good amount of hype when it was released because of its “Miasma Wind” attack. However, as soon people realized that you needed to have a full bench or drop an energy every turn to make Leafeon UD work. Skuntank G PL was then considered but quickly dropped as it poisoned Leafeon too.
With Recover Energy, however, Leafeon could use Skuntank G PL to poison both defending Pokémon and Recover Energy to remove the special condition.
While not the best tactic, I believe Recover Energy could be a good card, and I hope someone considers plopping it into their next build.
My Rating: 2/5
