Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Yanmega from the Supreme Victors set. This is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a +20 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and free retreat costs. Yanmega's Poke-Power is called Speed Boost and it says that once per turn you may attach a grass energy card from your discard pile to Yanmega, as long as Yanmega is your active Pokemon. Besides the Poke-Power, Yanmega has two moves, the first move is called Wind Return, which takes two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage plus 20 damage for each energy card you move from Yanmega to your hand, if you decide to remove all of them when using this move. Yanmega's second move is called Speed Dive and does 70 damage for four energy cards, two each of grass and colorless.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this has to be one of the quickest Pokemon cards out there because of its Poke-Power. So if you utilize its Poke-Power when using it, its moves can be used in two turns or less. So there is no need to set this card up on your bench you can just put it into play and attack. Since this card is so fast I would suggest you play the card like this, when you put it into the active Pokemon spot, use Speed Dive first to do 70 damage, then use Wind Return the next turn to do 100 damage, and then finally the third turn retreat Yanmega for free. When using this card, make sure to always have energy cards in your discard pile and hand so you can attach up to two energy cards to Yanmega per turn.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating. This card is extremely fast and with a free retreat cost you can move this card in and out of play as often as you like. It does have above average hp as well so it should be able to last awhile in play without being knocked out. So if you are building a grass type deck make sure to take a look at this card when building it.
