Staraptor FB -- Supreme Victors Pokemon Card Review

Staraptor FB Pokemon Card Supreme Victors setPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Staraptor FB from the Supreme Victors set. This is a basic, SP, normal type Pokemon card with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. It does not have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Quick Attack which does 10 damage for one colorless energy card, but if you get a heads when you flip a coin this move does 20 damage instead of 10. Staraptor's second move is called Whirlwind and for three colorless energy cards, it does 30 damage and makes your opponent switch the defending Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this is a great card to be a starter Pokemon in your deck. It can do 20 damage very quickly, and can retreat if it has to with only one energy card. Plus it is a normal type Pokemon so it can be in any deck. Other than that, I would stay away from using Whirlwind, it requires too many energy cards to use and it doesn't do very much damage. Additionally, your opponent may want to switch out the defending Pokemon and with Whirlwind they have the ability to do this without losing any energy cards.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. Other than being a good starter Pokemon, this card is not good at all in my opinion. There is no reason to waste three energy cards on a move that does 30 damage, and by the time you get 30 damage on Staraptor you'll more than likely be knocked out since this card only has 80 hp. I would try and find a better card that can attack quickly yet do other things to make the card more valuable than Staraptor.

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