Pokemon Card of the Day: Charizard (Team Rocket)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Dark Charizard from the Team Rocket set. This is a stage 2, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of only 80. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, a -30 resistance type, and a high retreat cost of 3 colorless energy cards. Charizard doesn't have a Poke-Power but it does have two moves, the first move is called Nail Flick and this move does 10 damage for one colorless energy card. Charizard's second move is called Continuous Fireball and this move requires 2 fire energy cards and does 50 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip the amount of times you have energy cards and for each head you get it does 50 damage but you also have to discard that energy card too. So as far as strategy goes I would try and use Continuous Fireball every turn even though this probably won't be possible since you'll hope to get a lot of heads every time you use this move and be able to do lots of damage. I would use this card to specifically knock out Pokemon with a lot of damage in one move, I would load this card up with lets say 4 energy cards and hope for at least 2 heads that way it could do 100 damage that turn and more than likely knock out that Pokemon and then still be able to use Continuous Fireball the next turn. I can't really rate this card since it is an older card but I don't think it has very good hp and it has a good move but it probably can only do major damage once before waiting a few turns to do damage again. I will be doing quite a few Charizard card reviews in a row so look forward to those. So thanks for reading today's review of Dark Charizard from Team Rocket.
