Pokemon Card of the Day: Charizard (EX Dragon)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Charizard from EX Dragon. This is a stage 2, fire type, Pokemon card with an hp of 120. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a 2 colorless energy card retreat cost. Charizard doesn't have a Poke-Power but it does have two moves, the first move is called Collect Fire and this move does 30 damage for 2 energy cards, one each of fire and colorless, besides doing the damage you may flip a coin when you use this move and if you get a heads you can search the discard pile for up to two fire energy cards and attach them to Charizard. Charizard's second move is called Flame Pillar and this move does 60 damage for 4 energy cards, 1 fire energy card, and 3 colorless energy cards. Besides doing the 60 damage you can choose to discard a fire energy card and you can do 30 damage to one of your opponent's benched Pokemon. So as far as strategy goes, this card is really quick so you can do 60 damage quite quickly since you can use Collect Fire one turn and then be able to use Flame Pillar the next if you attach 2 energy cards to it, then if you really wanted to you could attach another energy card from your hand to Charizard and then do 60 damage to the defending Pokemon and 30 damage to a benched Pokemon. So I recently bid on this card on eBay but I lost by $.50 I believe I was pretty disappointed but maybe I'll find an EX Dragon box sometime for cheap and buy that. So thanks for reading today's review of Charizard from EX Dragon stay tuned for tomorrow's review of another Charizard card.
