Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Magmortar from the Supreme Victors set. This is a stage 1, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 110. It has a +30 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Poke-Power is called Evolutionary Flame and it says that when you put Magmortar into play to evolve one of your Pokemon the defending Pokemon is now burned and confused. Besides the Poke-Power, Magmortar has two moves, the first move is called Fire Arrow which takes two energy cards, one each of fire and colorless, and does 30 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon. Magmortar's second move is called Flame Ball and for three energy cards, two colorless and one fire, it does 60 damage, and once you use this move you may move one fire energy card to one of your other Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, any time you evolve Magmar into Magmortar it is going to greatly affect the defending Pokemon, so I would try and evolve Magmar when the opponent has a strong Pokemon in play, so hopefully they do damage to themselves and get even more damage by being burned. Other than that, I would use Fire Arrow more if I used this card in a spread damage type deck, and I would use Flame Ball if I were using Magmortar in any other type of deck. Also if I knew Magmortar was going to be knocked out during the next turn I would make sure and move that energy card to one of my benched Pokemon when using Flame Ball.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. Besides its Poke-Power which is extremely good, this card is extremely average. It does the standard 60 damage for three energy cards, and it also has the ability to do damage to any of my opponent's Pokemon whenever it wants. There is nothing spectacular about this card, but it is really solid, and would be a great addition to any fire type deck that needs another offensive weapon.
