General description:
This card was pulled out by me in my first Supreme Victors pack. It is strategic, has its pros and cons too.
It can be use anytime during a battle. When you are warming up, when you are leading or when you are about to lose.

Strategies and game play:
I think the best thing about this card is that it can put pokémon to sleep while dealing damage. First round you put the def. pokemon to sleep. and between turns, if it doesnt wake up, it wont attack. then, you can put it to sleep again if it just woke up before your turn, thus giving you 50% immunity.

Combos with other cards:
Probably with its retreat cost, this card can be a warmer. You can put your opp. in sleep, and if it is still sleeping your next turn, you can retreat Altaria C and attack it with a powerful blow!

Ways to counteract it:
Best way is colorless pokémon, since it has a big disadvantage against fellow type pokés.

The first attack is I mentioned is really useful. 2nd is 30 pure damage. no weakness, resistance. the choice is yours. And nice resistance, low retreat cost.

Weakness against Colorless Pokémon, which can be found virtually in every deck. Also its HP can be 90 or 100 too.

I didn't see any Variations other than the regular english one.

Artwork and aesthetics:
Artwork is pretty nice. its not bada**, maybe too cuddly for a Champion's Pokémon
