Butterfree FB -- Supreme Victors Pokemon Card Review

Butterfree FB Pokemon Card Supreme Victors setPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Butterfree FB from the Supreme Victors set. This is a basic, SP, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Poke-Body is called Compound Eyes and says that if your opponent's active Pokemon has any Poke-Bodies that Butterfree's move does 30 more damage. Besides the Poke-Body, Butterfree only has one move called Select Powder which takes three energy cards, one grass and two colorless and does 30 damage and either burns or poisons the defending Pokemon depending on what you choose.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, I would keep this card on my bench until I got three energy cards on it. Then I would move it in, especially if the defending Pokemon had a Poke-Body on it, and use Select Powder and then either burn or poison them depending on what I thought was best. Other than that it is quite straightforward. I would possibly retreat Butterfree out after using Select Powder once, since the special condition would have a lingering effect on the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. This card has a good hp, low retreat cost, good Poke-Body and average move. The only down side to this card is that it will take awhile to do any moves so you'll want to be able to get energy cards on this card as fast as possible. I would make sure and pair this card with other grass Pokemon who inflict special conditions.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Butterfree FB from the Supreme Victors set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Camerupt from the Supreme Victors set.
