Rayquaza C -- Supreme Victors Pokemon Card Review

Rayquaza C Pokemon Card Supreme Victors setPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rayquaza C from the Supreme Victors set. This is a basic, SP, normal type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to colorless type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Rayquaza's first move is called Trash Burst and for one colorless energy card, you may discard up to 5 energy cards from your hand, for each one your discard it does 10 more damage to the base damage of 10. So if you discarded five total energy cards from your hand, this move would do 60 damage for only one energy card. Rayquaza's second move is called Twister, and for four colorless energy cards this move does 50 damage, however when you use this move, you have to flip two coins, if both are tails, this move does nothing, for each heads you flip you may remove one energy card from the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, if you want this card to be able to do a lot of damage very quickly, you are going to have to have a way to get energy cards into your hand fast. However when using Trash Burst, you'll be wasting a lot of energy cards, so you'll want to have a way to retrieve them from the discard pile and put them either back into your deck or preferrably back into your hand. Trash Burst might work once, but it will be extremely hard to get another five energy cards back into your hand so quickly, so you'll have to try and attach energy cards to Rayquaza. Twister can be effective if you get two heads, especially if you are facing a Pokemon that needs a lot of energy to attack, but no matter what move you use on this card, neither move can do a massive amount of damage, so you'll have to find better cards to really do some damage.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. This is a card that shows why I dislike SP cards so much, it has too low of hp and requires too many energy cards to attack, and when you do attack this card can hardly do any damage, or it may not do any at all. I guess if you do have a lot of energy cards in your hand, this card could be good for a move, but that is all.
