(the girly one from Legendary Treasures)
Hello and welcome to a new (shorter) week of reviews
here on Pojo’s
CotD. We kick off with a
look at Stunfisk from the
Legendary Treasures set.
As most of you will know, Legendary Treasures is
basically a reprint set rounded off with some Japanese
stuff that we haven’t already got. This includes cards
from the ‘Shiny Collection’, which had a pink and pretty
theme that seemed like it was designed to appeal to

Stunfisk) and Fighting is still a very solid

Lightning Resistance). Meanwhile, Attract is a low-cost
way of stalling your opponent if you can hit the coin
flip heads, while Mud-Slap is a semi-decent offensive
option, if a little expensive.
Don’t expect to see Stunfisk
techs in every deck in future tournaments or anything
like that. It’s a fun little card and a curious choice
to get the prettyful
treatment. That’s more than enough reasons for me to

Limited: 3 (Attract can be super annoying here)
