Pokemon Card of the Day: Charizard (EX Power Keepers)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Charizard from the EX Power Keepers set. 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 retreat cost of two colorless energy cards. Charizard doesn't have a Poke-Power but it does have two moves, the first move is called Combustion and does 30 damage for only one fire energy card. Charizard's second move is called Bursting Inferno and this move does 50 damage for four energy cards, two each of fire and colorless. Besides doing the damage it also burns both Pokemon. So as far as strategy goes I would recommend using Bursting Inferno every turn, I would just make sure you have a trainer in your deck that can heal Charizard's burn right away, or you use this card at the end of the game where you can just outlast the defending Pokemon in terms of hp. Now this is one of the Charizard cards that I have more than one of and a reverse one too. The reason this is is because you can get an EX Power Keepers set for pretty cheap and Power Keepers it a pack you get with a lot of tins and special packs you can buy. So thanks for reading today's review of Charizard from EX Power Keepers stay tuned for tomorrow's review of another Charizard card.

I think that each defending pokemon is burned means that each of your opponent's pokemon in play is burned.That"ll make the 4 energy cost and the low damage a little better.

Defending pokemon refers to the opponent's active pokemon, so the "each" part of the effect only comes up on a 2v2 battle, which TPCI tried to promote at the time.
