Articuno -- Supreme Victors Pokemon Card Review

Articuno Pokemon Card Supreme Victors setPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Articuno from the Supreme Victors set. This is a basic, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a +30 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Articuno doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, its first move is called Sharp Beak which requres three energy cards, two colorless and one water and does 30 damage plus 10 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin. Articuno's second move is called Ice Beam and for four energy cards, two each of water and colorless, does 50 damage plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin the defending Pokemon is paralyzed.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a basic Pokemon card you can't do too much with out.
It isn't a quick Pokemon so you'll want to keep it on your bench until you get at least three energy cards on it, then I would definitely use Ice Beam and hope for a heads so that the defending Pokemon can't attack you the next turn due to paralysis. Just make sure that if you want to use this card you have a way to quickly get energy cards on this card, otherwise you'll be out of luck if you have to put it into the active Pokemon spot without any energy cards attached to it.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. To me, this isn't a good card at all, it can't really do much for damage and it takes way too long to be able to do any damage. The only good thing about it is that both of its moves have an additional coin flip factor that makes the moves better than they originally were. But I would definitely try and find a different water type Pokemon card for your deck.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
