Players are able to provide their Axies with additional abilities by using cards in Axie Infinity, however, some cards are weak to certain classes.
Axie Infinity is a popular Pokémon-inspired game where players can earn tokens through contributions to the ecosystem and skilled game play. It is a non-fungible token game, meaning that players can earn Ethereum-based cryptocurrencies, Axie Infinity Shards (AXS) and Smooth Love Potions (SLP). The game allows players to collect, battle, raise, breed, trade and build a land-based kingdom for their pets, called Axies.
Players are able to provide their Axies with additional statistics and abilities by using cards. There are currently over 130 cards available in the game. The cards can be divided into six primary classes, including Plant, Bird, Reptile, Bug, Beast and Aqua. There are also three secret classes, Dust, Mech and Dawn. Each class is then divided into different body parts, such as horn, mouth and tail, among others.
