Electivire FB -- Supreme Victors Pokemon Card Review

Electivire FB Pokemon Card Supreme Victors setPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Electivire FB from the Supreme Victors set. This is a basic, SP, electric type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. It does not have a Poke-Body or Poke-Power but it does have two moves, the first move is called Dump and Draw which takes 1 colorless energy card, and tells you to discard up to two energy cards from your hand, for each you discard you may draw two cards from your deck. Electivire's second move is called Electric Current and for three energy cards, one electric and two colorless, it does 40 damge, however once you use this move you have to move one electric energy card from Electivire to one of your benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, I would use this card only for its first move, allowing me to get four cards in my hand while only discarding two. This move would allow me to hopefully get a trainer I need or Pokemon I need into my hand more quickly then waiting a few turns to draw those cards. However, just using this card for Dump and Draw isn't smart because you have to have at least 3 energy cards on Electivire in order to retreat, so if you are going to use this card at all you might as well put three energy cards on it so that you can use its only move that can actually attack.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. Dump and Draw is the only good thing about this card. Other than that, this card is terrible, it has a majorly weak move in Electric Current, which should do at least 60 damage for three energy cards, not 40, and when you do do this move you have to move an energy card from it, so you'll always have to be adding energy cards to this card, and if you don't want to use Electric Current you can't attack at all, and you can't retreat unless you put a ton of energy cards on Electivire.

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