Metagross -- Supreme Victors Pokemon Card Review

Metagross Pokemon Card Supreme Victors setPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Metagross from the Supreme Victors set. This is a stage 2, metal type Pokemon card with an hp of 130. It has a +30 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Its Poke-Body is called Gravitation and it says that all Pokemon in play have -20 hp. Besides the Poke-Body, Metagross has one move called Geo Impact which does the standard 60 damage for three energy cards, in this case two metal and one colorless. Plus if you have a stadium card in play, this move does 20 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, if you want to best utilize Metagross' Poke-Body, I would do a couple of things, first I would make sure all of my Pokemon in my deck have higher than average hp. Secondly, I would include other Pokemon in the deck that have spread damage type moves, so if I use Metagross' Poke-Body I may be able to knock out some of my opponent's Pokemon without even doing any damage. Other than that, this card's strategy is straight-forward, make sure and use a stadium card when using Metagross, so that you can do 20 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon besides doing the 60 damage to the active Pokemon. I would suggest too, that you can keep this card on your bench the whole time and just use its Poke-Body and hopefully be able to knock out your opponent's Pokemon much easier.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. Without a deck with a solid strategy, this card isn't that effective, but it sure can be. With all Pokemon in play having 20 hp less, and then being able to do 20 hp to each of your opponent's Pokemon is like doing 40 damage on their regular hp the first time you use Gravitation. So be prepared to knock out a lot of Pokemon with this card, just make sure that you don't knock out your own Pokemon this same way.

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