Lucario GL -- Rising Rivals Pokemon Card Review

Lucario GL Pokemon Card Rising Rivals SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Lucario GL from the Rising Rivals set. This is a basic, fighting type Pokemon with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Poke-Body is called Boundary aura which says that you need to apply x2 weakness to everyone's Pokemon in play. Besides the Poke-Body, Lucario GL only has one move called Combo Throw which takes three energy cards, one metal and two colorless energy cards and this move does 30 damage plus 10 more damage for each energy attached to the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
As far as strategy goes, this card would work good against Pokemon that have low weaknesses, let's say +10 weakness, but in order for this to have any effect at all your opponent's Pokemon will have to be weak to your Pokemon. Other than that this card's strategy is extremely straightforward since it is a basic Pokemon and it only has one move.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5. This card is absolutely horrible, not only does is it very slow but it has a low hp to boot. Lucario GL's Poke-Body could wreak havoc on your own team and its only move isn't very good unless the defending Pokemon has a lot of energy cards attached to it and then Combo Throw will be good for only one turn since more than likely the Pokemon that your opponent will move into play won't have very much energy attached to it.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's review of Lucario GL from the Rising Rivals set, stay tuned for tomorrow's hopefully more positive review of Luxray GL from the same set.
