Pokemon Card of the Day: Emboar (Black and White 20/114)
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Emboar from the Black and White set. This is the second version of Emboar I have reviewed from the Black and White set. Emboar is a stage 2, fire type Pokemon that is the final evolution of the starter Pokemon Tepig. Emboar has an hp of 150, a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost. Emboar's ability is called Flame Fury and it says as often as you like during your turn you may attach a fire energy card from your hand to one of your Pokemon. Besides the Ability, Emboar has one move called Heat Crash which takes four energy cards, two each of fire and colorless, and does 80 damage. As far as strategy goes, I would recommend having this Emboar card in every fire deck you build. Its Ability is absolutely amazing and as long as you have energy cards in your hand even the slowest Pokemon out there can become quick as can be. So make sure if you do use this card to make sure you have cards in your deck that let you get as many energy cards into your hand as possible. I would rate this card a 5 out of 5 solely on its Ability. So as long as you have 4 energy cards in your hand you can use Heat Crash in one turn. You don't even to move Emboar off your bench and you can still attach as many energy cards to your Pokemon as you like, as long as they are fire energy cards. So thanks for reading today's review of Emboar from the Black and White set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Samurott from the same set.
