Blaziken FB -- Supreme Victors Pokemon Card Review

Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Blaziken FB from the Supreme Victors set. This is a basic, SP, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to Water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Blaziken does not have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves. Its first move is called Luring Flame and for one fire energy card, this move lets you switch the defending Pokemon with one of your opponent's benched Pokemon, and make the new defending Pokemon burned. Blaziken's second move is called Vapor Kick, and this move takes two energy cards, one each of fire and colorless, and does 30 damage unless your opponent has any water Pokemon in play then this move does 60 damage instead of 30.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this is another very fast Pokemon. Both of its moves require minimal energy and can do a fair amount of damage, especially if you are facing water type Pokemon. I would try and incorporate this card into a deck that includes some spread damage type Pokemon, that way when you use Luring Flame you can move in a Pokemon of your opponent's that is close to feinting, and then once that Pokemon becomes burned it may be knocked out within a turn or two. Another strategy I would use with this card is to use Luring Flame and switch in a Pokemon of your opponent's that is a stage 2 Pokemon but doesn't have enough energy cards on it yet to attack, that way you could do damage to it each turn without getting damaged, and more than likely your opponent wouldn't be able to retreat that Pokemon. Once you burned the defending Pokemon you could switch out Blaziken and do damage with a more powerful Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. I really do like Blaziken's first move, which allows you to choose your opponent's active Pokemon, but its second move really isn't anything special unless you go against water Pokemon, and with a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, more than likely Blaziken will be knocked out quicker than you'll be able to knock out a water type Pokemon by using Vapor Kick.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
