Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Braviary from the Emerging Powers set. This is a stage 1, normal or colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Braviary doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Wing Attack and does 40 damage for two colorless energy cards. Braviary's second move is called Brave Bird and for three colorless energy cards it does 90 damage, however when using this move, Braviary does 30 damage to itself.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because this is a colorless type Pokemon you can put this card into any type deck. I would probably use Brave Bird every turn until I more than likely knock Braviary out, but you should be able to knock at least 1 Pokemon out with this card and if possibly you could retreat this card since it only requires one colorless energy card to retreat it. Brave Bird should be able to knock out the majority of basic and stage 1 Pokemon cards. If you don't want to do damage to yourself, stick with Wing Attack.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. This card can do a lot of damage but it comes at a price of 30 damage to Braviary. If it would have been less damage per turn to Braviary I would have gave this card a better rating but with only 100 hp, if you use Brave Bird twice, you'll probably be knocked out if you are facing any good Pokemon at all.
