Pokemon Card of the Day: Fearow (Unleashed)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Fearow from the Unleashed set. This card is a stage 1, normal type Pokemon card with an hp of 80. Unfortunately Fearow has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon which is especially bad considering all the Luxray GL Lv. X decks out there but it does have a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon and a retreat cost of one colorless energy cards. Fearow doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first is called Wing Attack and this move does 30 hp for two colorless energy cards. Fearow's second move is called Repeating Drill and this move does 20x damage times the number of heads when you flip 5 coins for 3 colorless energy cards. As far as strategy goes it is pretty straightforward, if the Pokemon will feint with a move that does 30 hp or less use Wing Attack otherwise use Repeating Drill which should average around 50 hp damage a turn. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5. The reason I rate this card is a 3 is because of its low hp and x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon along with not having a Poke-Power or Poke-Body, what differs this card from a 2 rated card is that this is a normal type Pokemon card so this card can be used in any deck since you can use any types of energy cards with it. Also Fearow can do fairly steady damage with both of its moves so it will be able to affect the game if you use this card. Thanks for reading to day's review of Fearow from Unleashed, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of another rare card from one of the HGSS sets.
