Hey guys! I hope everyone has has an awesome week so far! Anyway, today we'll be reviewing our very first Kricketune (PL-32/127) card! So, let's get started!

(C)(C) Revenge Melody - 20x damage - Does 20 damage times the number of Kricketot and Kricketune in your discard pile.

(Gs)(Gs) Bug Buzz - 50+ damage - If the Defending Pokémon is Asleep, this attack does 50 damage plus 30 more damage. Remove the Special Condition Asleep from the Defending Pokémon.

Stage: 1
Type: Grass
HP: 90
Weakness: +20 to fire
Resistance: None
Retreat: (C)

Ok! Time to review! First up is no bodies/powers. As always, not good but not bad either. It all depends on your play style and your deck. Next up is it's stats. 90HP on a Stage 1 is about normal. Tho, with all of the legendary basics in PL, SF, and LA you may find it hard to keep up. A weakness to fire is par for the course, tho it could cause problems if we see people trying to meta-game the Shay/skymin decks. Tho, in this case it would actually be GOOD to have a couple of Kricketot/Kricketune in the discard. I'll tell you why in a minute.. Not having a resistance is NEVER a good thing. And last but not least is the retreat! A single energy isn't bad, tho being a flying bug it would have made sense for a free retreat. But I digress, ^^' It's not bad; and you could always play Dawn Stadium.

Now let's look at the attacks. First up is Revenge Melody. 20x the number of kricket's in your discard for only (C)(C). Not bad, tho to do any real damage you'd have to have 2-3 in your discard. That doesn't leave much left for play. A good combo here would be to use a card yourself that has you discard, dis a kricket, and then use something like Poke'Rescue.

Next is Bug Buzz. An amazing attack for only 2 grass energy. A base of 50 with a an added 30 for being asleep?! Can anyone say "combo this with galactic?" I can. ^^ Drawback is you have to remove the condition afterwards but hey, no attack is perfect.

In all I'd say this is definitely a card worth checking into. While it's first attack may not be extremely effective, it's second is devastating! And a deck with this card would use so few energy that you could add in tons of trainers to help exploit Revenge Melody! Tho, you'd have to watch it's HP. Also think about combining this with a G-deck and Dawn Stadium.
