Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Electivire from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set. Electivire is a stage 1, lightning type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Electivire does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Tag Team Spark, this move requires one lightning energy card and does 20 damage plus 20 more damage attached to your Magmortar. Electivire's second move is called Gigavolt, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one lightning, and does 60 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin the move does 30 more damage, or if you get a tails the defending Pokemon is paralyzed.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Electivire is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Electabuzz into play (I reviewed Electabuzz from this set yesterday) and then evolve Electabuzz into Electivire. If you read yesterday's review of Electabuzz, you'll know that I thought that card was a very solid Basic Pokemon card with a good HP and two average moves that could easily be used in a deck on its own. So knowing this about Electabuzz and looking at this Electivire card, I would definitely recommend using this line in a deck. If you want to utilize Tag Team Spark, you'll also want to use the line of Magmar and Magmortar from this set to pump up the attack on Tag Team Spark, but even if you don't use this line, I would still consider using a 1-1 or a 2-2 line of this family. I would definitely try to get three energy cards on Electivire as soon as possible and then use Gigavolt every turn, not only does this move do average damage for the amount of energy cards it requires but it does either extra damage or paralyzes the defending Pokemon. If you get Electivire into play before it has three energy cards on it, you'll have to use Tag Team Spark and do 20 damage.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set. This card is definitely a good Stage 1 Pokemon card, it has a really high HP, a move that is quick in only requiring one energy card to use, and a powerful attack that does 60 damage minimum. So you can definitely not go wrong using this card in your lightning type deck, and together with Electabuzz, I give these two cards a 4 out of 5 rating, individually I gave Electabuzz a 3 and Electivire a 4.
