Night Unison Set Review – Grass

Hello everyone and welcome back to my latest post. Today we will be looking through and reviewing the new Japanese Pokémon expansion Night Unison, or SM9a.

Venonat

Venonat 60HP [G]

[G] Radar Eye
Look at the top 7 cards of your deck and put 1 of them into your hand. Then, shuffle the remaining cards into your deck.

[C][C] Flop 20

Weakness: [R] x2
Resistance: [NONE]
Retreat Cost: [C]

Venonat is nothing special really; it’s just another basic that evolves into something. Radar Eye could be useful in some cases, but I can never see this card being used outside of a Venomoth deck.

1.5 stars, it’s just an average basic Pokémon.

Venomoth-GX

Venomoth-GX 200HP [G]

[G][C][C] Secret of the Ninja 110+
If you played Koga’s Trap from your hand this turn, this attack does 90 more damage. If you played Janine from your hand this turn, during your opponent’s next turn, prevent all damage done to this Pokemon from the attacks of your opponent’s Basic Pokemon.

[C] Tenfold Retaliation-GX 60
Shuffle your hand into your deck and draw 10 cards. (You can’t use more than 1 GX attack in a game.)

Weakness: [R] x2
Resistance: [NONE]
Retreat Cost: [C]

I definitely see potential in this card. With the ability to deal 200 damage for a rather standard attack cost is wonderful, especially on a Stage 1 Pokémon like itself. It even combos well with Koga’s Trap, since poison damage reaches the magic 210 damage, and Choice Band puts it at 240.

4 stars, this is a very good card which I would definitely play.

Bellsprout

Bellsprout 50HP [G]

[G] Razor Leaf 20

Weakness: [R] x2
Resistance: [NONE]
Retreat Cost: [C]

There isn’t much to say about this card, it’s just a Basic Pokémon to evolve. 1 star, nothing special about it.

Weepinbell

Weepinbell 80HP [G]

[G] Burning Venom
Your opponent’s Active Pokemon is now Poisoned and Burned.

[C][C] Ram 30

Weakness: [R] x2
Resistance: [NONE]
Retreat Cost: [C][C]

Although in a Victreebel deck you probably will just Rare Candy past this stage, there is a chance this card might come into play. It has a fairly decent first attack to combo with the Victreebel from this set, but overall the 2 Energy Retreat Cost will let this card down.

1.5 stars, it could be okay.

Victreebel

Victreebel 140HP [G]

[G] Reactive Poison 10+
This attack does 60 more damage for each Special Condition on your opponent’s Active Pokemon.

[G][C][C] Gastro Acid 90
Until the end of your next turn, the Defending Pokemon has no Ability.

Weakness: [R] x2
Resistance: [NONE]
Retreat Cost: [C][C]

This card looks fun. It can do amazing things with special conditions, so it could pair well with Koga’s Trap or Salazzle, and it shuts down all attacking Pokémon that utilize abilities. It has affordable attack costs, but is a Stage 2, unfortunately.

3 stars, could be interesting as a rogue deck.

Grubbin

Grubbin 60HP [G]

[G] Electric Signal

[C][C][C] Corkscrew Punch 30
Search your deck for up to 2 [L] Pokemon, reveal them, and put them into your hand. Then, shuffle your deck.

Weakness: [R] x2
Resistance: [NONE]
Retreat Cost: [C][C]

This is probably the best Grubbin card there is, as it allows you to search your deck for Vikavolts as its first attack.

2 stars as it will be most played of the Grubbins.


I hope you have enjoyed this little post, and come back soon to check out my other reviews of this set. Bye!
