Get Amp'd With Ampharos!

Special Thanks to PokéBeach for the image.

Ampharos (SW-1/132) is a great addition to the Bench attacking Pokémon Family in TCG! It has a solid 130 HP, a understandable +30 weakness to Fighting, a nice -20 resistance to Metal and quite massive 3 retreat cost.

Its Primary function is its PokéBody Jamming.

PokéBody: Jamming
After your opponent plays a Supporter Card from his or her hand, put 1 damage counter on each of your opponent's Pokémon. You can't use more than 1 Jamming PokéBody each turn.

Having Amphy in the Bench may restrict the opponent in using Supporter cards or he or she may face the consequence of putting 1 damage counter on all of his or her Pokémon.

Its Cluster Bolt attack do 70 damage for 1 Lightning and 2 of any kind. Use it and you'll have the option to discard all Lightning Energies attached to Amphy and do 20 damage to your opponent's Benched Pokémon that has energy cards attached to it. A good counter attack to Magneton PK, Honchkrow MT, Blaziken PK, Typholosion MT and the future Leafeon Lv. X that leaves energized Pokémon on the Bench.

Being a Stage 2 Pokémon means that a deck with Amphy must have Rare Candies to speed up its Bench appearance. This Pokémon is indeed one of the most precious additions to Pokémon TCG.

"Empoleon meet your new teammate, Ampharos!"
