Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Thundurus from the Emerging Powers set. This is a basic, ultra rare, electric type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. It does not have a special ability, but it does have two moves, the first move is called Charge which says to take an electric energy card from your deck and attach it to Thundurus, to do this move you need one colorless energy card. Thundurus' second move is called Disaster Volt and for three energy cards two electric and one colorless it does 80 damage. However, when you use this move you'll have to discard an energy card attached to Thundurus.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, depending on when you get Thundurus into the game will decide how you use this card. If you can set it up on your bench first, then you can just go right ahead and use Disaster Volt, otherwise I would recommend using Charge and then Disaster Volt the next turn. If you can withstand a turn without attacking, you can use Charge every other turn to replenish Thundurus and still be able to attach an energy card to another one of your Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. This card can do a fair amount of damage and do this damage fairly quickly. It has a low retreat cost for the amount of damage it can do, and you can do damage every turn as long as you can attach an energy card every turn. I wish that Charge would actually take an energy card from the discard pile instead of the deck but overall this is an average card that can do major damage but not every turn, unless you have a ton of energy in your hand.
