Pokemon Card of the Day: Charizard (Skyridge)

Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Charizard from the Skyridge set. This is a stage 2, crystal type Pokemon card with an hp of 110. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a retreat cost of 4 colorless energy cards. Since Charizard is a crystal type Pokemon it's Poke-Body is called Crystal Type and says that whenever you attach a fire, electric, or fighting type energy card to Charizard, Charizard assumes that type for that turn. So basically it helps you do more damage by being able to play a plethora of energy types therefore being more likely to have your opponent be weak to you. Charizard has two moves the first move is called Fireblast and for 3 energy cards, 2 fire and 1 fighting it does 40 damage but then you have to discard an energy card from Charizard. Charizard's second move is called Dragon Tail and for 4 energy cards, 2 electric, 1 fire, and 1 colorless it does 50 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins. So as far as strategy goes I would use Dragon Tail every time because you more than likely will do at least 50 damage and also you won't have to discard any energy cards. By just using Dragon Tail you wouldn't have to add fighting energy cards to your deck, if you really wanted to use Fireblast I would recommend using special energy cards for fighting energy cards. This is another card that I was hoping to get when I opened my Skyridge booster box but I didn't get. So thanks for reading today's review Charizard from Skyridge stay tuned for tomorrow's review of another Charizard card.
