Bronzong 4 -- Rising Rivals Pokemon Card Review

Bronzong 4 Pokemon Card Rising Rivals SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Bronzong 4 from the Rising Rivals set. This is a basic, psychic type Pokemon with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fire type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. It doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, its first move is called Hand Refresh and for no energy cards at all, it allows each player to shuffle their hand into their deck and draw four new cards. Bronzong 4's other move is called Payback and for two energy cards, one each of psychic and colorless, it does 10 damage unless your opponent only has one prize card left then it does 60 damage and confuses the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
As far as strategy goes, I would only put Bronzong into play at the very end of the game to try and save the game for you since it can do 60 damage and confuse the defending Pokemon. You can try and use Hand Refresh to your advantage if you know your opponent has some cards in their hand they really like, but I would stick to doing damage to the defending Pokemon when you are so close to losing the game.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would only give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. To me, this card has a good strategy but with its retreat cost so high and its hp so low, I would want to move this card into play for one turn and retreat it back out right away, but you can't do that with this card and as soon as it has to stay in play for more than a turn it will get knocked out for sure without being able to defend itself at all.
Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's review of Bronzong 4 from the Rising Rivals set, stay tuned for tomorrow's review of Drapion 4 from the same set.
