Pokemon Card of the Day: Charizard (Arceus)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Charizard from the Arceus set. This is a stage 2, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 140. It has a +30 resistance to water type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a retreat cost of 3 colorless energy cards. Charizard's Poke-Body is called Fire Formation which says that each of Charizard's attacks does 10 more damage for each fire Pokemon on your bench. Charizard has two solid moves, the first move is called Fire Wing and this move does 30 damage for 1 fire energy card. Charizard's second move is called Burning Tail and this move does 80 damage for 3 energy cards, 2 fire, and 1 colorless. But you then have to discard a fire energy card when you use this move. So as far as strategy goes I would definitely try and use this card in a deck with as many fire Pokemon in it as possible that way you can put a bunch of those Pokemon on your bench and then be able to do even more damage by utilizing Charizard's Poke-Body, so if you have two fire Pokemon on your bench for only 1 energy card you can do 50 damage with Fire Wing and 100 damage for 3 energy cards with Burning Tail. I would use Burning Tail every turn if I could unless I only needed to do 30 damage or less since then you wouldn't have to discard an energy card if you used Fire Wing instead of Burning Tail. I would rate this card a 5 out of 5 because it has a high hp, a low weakness, and a powerful move that can become even more powerful with its Poke-Body. So thanks for reading today's review of Charizard from the Arceus set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of another card, I think this time not Charizard.
