Pokemon Card of the Day: Charizard reprint (Stormfront)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Charizard from the Stormfront set. This card is a reprint card and you can tell that because it is a regular holographic card but the number of the card is more than the number of cards in the set. This card is an exact replica of the Base Set Charizard card with the only difference being the artwork. This is a stage 2 Pokemon card and it has an hp of 120 which is average at best for a Pokemon of this caliber. A x2 weakness to water type Pokemon is expected and surprisingly it has a -30 resistance to fighting type Pokemon. Charizard does have about an average retreat cost of 3 colorless energy cards, so you can retreat Charizard and stll have one energy card on it. Charizard's Poke-Body is called Energy Burn and it says that all energy attached to Charizard is fire energy. So if you want to wait and only use Charizard you can use its Poke-Body and be pretty much able to use Charizard in any deck you want. Charizard's only move is called Fire Spin and for 4 energy cards, all fire energy, you can do 120 hp damage which will knock just about any Pokemon card out. But you also have to discard two energy cards from Charizard when you use this move, so you'll only be able to attack with Charizard ever other turn if you have sufficient energy cards in your hand to attach one to it each turn. As far as strategy it is very straightforward since it only has one move, I would actually stack up energy cards on Charizard on the bench before I put it into play so you can use Fire Spin more than every other turn. So thanks for reading today's review and make sure and stay tuned for tomorrow's review.

@Theredy42 He has already done Typhlosion Prime. Could you do the Raichu from Stormfront? Also, why are you not responding to our comments?!

Ahhhh! Sorry for asking this again, but it would be really great if you could do Flareon from Majestic Dawn. I feel like a brat for asking so much, sorry, and thanks!
