Honchkrow -- Supreme Victors Pokemon Card Review

Honchkrow Pokemon Card Supreme Victors setPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Honchkrow from the Supreme Victors set. This is a Stage 1, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a +20 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Poke-Power is called Darkness Restore and it says that once per turn as long as Honchkrow is your active Pokemon and your opponent's bench isn't full you may search your opponent's discard pile and put a Pokemon from that pile onto their bench. Besides the Poke-Power, Honchkrow only has one move called Riot which takes three energy cards, one darkness and two colorless, and does 30 damage plus 10 more damage for each basic Pokemon card in play, both yours and your opponents.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Honchkrow's move requires that you have a lot of basic Pokemon in play you would want to play this card right away or towards the end of the game. If you play it right away, more than likely all of the cards in play will be basic Pokemon so Riot should do a lot of damage, and at the end of the game, hopefully your opponent's bench isn't full and you can search their discard pile for basic Pokemon and put them on their bench. Another strategy that you could use with bringing these discarded basic Pokemon back into play is that you could have a card in your deck that does spread damage, so you would just find the weakest Pokemon your opponent has in their discard pile and then you would put them onto their bench, switch out Honchkrow and attack them with a powerful spread damage card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. This card has the potential to be good, but you'll need to give it some time, since it requires three energy cards to attack. As long as you wait it out on the bench and then start utilizing basic Pokemon, this card should be able to do a fair amount of damage, but if you play this card without many basic Pokemon in play, you'll be knocked out before you know it without doing much damage at all.

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

This card can have good synergy in a LostGar deck; if they have any basics in their discard pile, rather than their lost zone, youy can make them put those back onto their bench, to stop them putting down all their better pokemon, allowing you to send their better pokemon to the lost zone!
