Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Absol G from the Supreme Victors set. This is a basic, SP, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 70. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Absol does not have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Feint Attack and for one darkness energy card, Absol is able to attack any one of your opponent's Pokemon and do 20 damage to that Pokemon. This move is not affected by weakness or resistance so it will always do 20 damage. Absol's second move is called Doom News and for three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness, Absol is guaranteed to knock out the defending Pokemon, as long as you return all energy cards attached to Absol to your hand, the defending Pokemon is knocked out following their next turn.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this is a great card to do two different things, it is a great starter Pokemon because it is very fast, only requiring one energy card to do damage to any of your opponent's Pokemon, and at the same time, it is a card that can knock out that one powerful Pokemon of your opponent's in one turn guaranteed. So if I were using this card, if I got it into the active Pokemon spot right away, I would only use the one energy card on it then stick to Feint. I would rather keep this card on my bench, put three energy cards on it, and when my opponent puts a really strong Pokemon card out there, put Absol in, use Doom News, and then retreat Absol back out, and possibly re-attach energy cards to it. Just make sure that if you are going to put Absol into the active Pokemon spot to use Doom News that it doesn't get knocked out by your opponent before Doom News knocked out that Pokemon because if it does, it would be a waste to use Doom News in the first place.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. I like the fact that this card assures a knock out, I would have gave it an even higher rating but since it does only have 70 hp, it can't last very long in play before getting knocked out. Other than that, it is quite good, it has a low retreat cost, and can attack quickly with a move that only requires one energy card.
