Luxray GL -- Rising Rivals Pokemon Card Review

Luxray GL Pokemon Card Rising Rivals SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card of the Day is Luxray GL from the Rising Rivals set. This is a basic, electric type Pokemon with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. It doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Bite and for two colorless energy cards it does 30 damage. Luxray GL's second move is called Trash Bolt which takes three energy cards, one electric and two colorless, and does 70 damage. However when using this move you have to discard an energy card from your hand and if you don't this move does nothing.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, you'll definitely want to use Luxray GL Lv. X in your deck if you're using this card. This card actually isn't too bad for an SP Pokemon. It does a fair amount of damage for two energy cards and the thing that is good about Trash Bolt is that it doesn't require you to discard an energy card from Luxray GL but from your hand, and this way you can incorporate supporter cards that allow you to search your discard pile for energy cards and put them back into your hand, so there is really no damage done to Luxray GL by discarding an energy card from your hand and Luxray GL will be able to attack every turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating, it is one of the better SP cards I've reviewed so far, it doesn't have an extremely high retreat cost but it doesn't have a high hp either. It can do some damage you'll just have to wait a few turns to do some damage and you'll have to have plenty of energy in your hand to do damage every turn.

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