Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Beartic from the Emerging Powers set. This is the second of the two Beartic cards in the Emerging Powers set. Just like yesterday, Beartic is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 130. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. This Beartic also doesn't have an Ability, but it does have two moves, the first move is called Icy Wind which for one water energy card, it does 30 damage and puts the defending Pokemon asleep. Beartic's second move is called Superpower which does 60 damage plus 20 more damage if you want, but then you have to do 20 damage to Beartic, you can do this move for three energy cards, two water and one colorless energy card.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, I would suggest having both Beartic cards in your deck, this one is a little faster than the one I used yesterday, that way depending if you're able to set up Beartic or not would determine which one to use. If you are using this one, I would use Icy Wind first to put the defending Pokemon asleep unless you could knock out the defending Pokemon with a move that does 80 damage. I would probably do 80 damage most of the time with Superpower just because Beartic has a high hp and can last a few turns when it does 20 damage to itself.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. I don't like this Beartic card as much as the one I reviewed yesterday but it is still good. It has a high hp, somewhat low retreat cost, and two good moves, one that inflicts a special condition, and the other that can do a massive amount of damage every turn.
Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
