Rhyperior 4 -- Rising Rivals Pokemon Card Review

Rhyperior 4 Pokemon Card Rising Rivals setPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rhyperior 4 from the Rising Rivals set. This is a basic SP, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to electric type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Rhyperior doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves. Its first move is called Double Lariat and for two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless, it does 30 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins. Rhyperior's second move is called Rock Tumble and for four energy cards, two each of fighting and colorless, it does 60 damage and this move isn't affected by resistance.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, it is extremely straightforward since this card is a basic Pokemon, and doesn't have any other moves than attacking ones. As soon as you get the necessary energy on Rhyperior attack with it, that's about all you can do. This card doesn't have a Poke-Power, it doesn't inflict special conditions, and it doesn't help other Pokemon, all it does is attack the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. For a basic Pokemon card, this card is way too slow, and you basically have to get four energy cards on it before you can be sure you'll actually be able to do some damage. And even when you get four energy cards on it it still can only do 60 damage which isn't that much for four energy cards. I would stay away from this card at all costs, it is not good at all.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
