Camerupt G -- Supreme Victors Pokemon Card Review

Camerupt G Pokemon Card Supreme VictorsPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Camerupt G from the Supreme Victors set. This is a basic, SP, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Camerupt does not have a Poke-Body or Poke-Power but it does have two moves, the first move is called Searing Flame which takes two energy cards, one fire and one colorless, and does 20 damage plus it burns the defending Pokemon. Camerupt's second move is called Earth Power which takes four colorless energy cards and does 60 damage, plus 10 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins to each of the opponent's benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, you'll want to wait awhile before you put this basic Pokemon into play because it does require a lot of energy for both of its moves. I may even consider putting this card in any deck that is a spread damage type deck because Earth Power only requres colorless energy cards. Because it does have a high retreat cost, I would move Camerupt into play when it had four energy cards on it then keep it there until it gets knocked out, hopefully knocking out a few of the opponent's Pokemon on its way.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. This is a very average card. I do however like how it can burn the defending Pokemon and do damage to the opponent's benched Pokemon, but you'll need to give this card some time before you can use it, and that is where its downfall lays since it is a basic Pokemon and it is so slow.

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

I disagree with your card rating.

With the right strategy, such as having a Typhlosion Prime using its Afterburner Pokepower, you can get Camerupt charged up with energies in no time... And the process is even faster if you have a Team Galactac's Invention: Energy Gain attached to it.

I use multiple of these cards in my fire deck and they never fail to deliver.
