Pokemon Card of the Day: Flareon (Undaunted)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Flareon from the Undaunted set, this is an uncommon card since it has a diamond at the bottom right hand corner of the card, it is a stage 1, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, and I just realized today that all Undaunted cards no matter if they're rare or common have a x2 weakness, Flareon has no resistance type and a retreat cost of 1 colorless energy card. Flareon has no Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have 2 moves, the first move is entitled Flame Tail and this move does 30 damage for 1 colorless energy card. Flareon's second move is called Flamethrower and this move does 90 damage for only 3 energy cards, 2 fire and 1 colorless, the only downside is that you have to discard an energy card attached to Flareon after using this move. As far as strategy goes it is really straightforward since it has no Poke-Power and two moves, I would actually try and load up Flareon on my bench with 4 energy cards before I put it into play so that I can use Flamethrower two turns in a row therefore for sure knocking out just about any Pokemon card out there. Also I know there are a lot of ways especially with fire type Pokemon to keep energy cards flowing throughout the game so you'll always have enough energy on Flareon to do 90 damage and be able to one hit knock out most basic and stage 1 Pokemon cards. I would rate this card a 3 out of 5 because other than being able to do 90 damage for 3 energy cards everything else about this card is average. So if you're building a fire deck and you're looking for a card that will give you some quick fire power, Flareon might be the card for you, so thanks for reading today's review of Flareon from Undaunted stay tuned for tomorrow's review of another Undaunted card.
