Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Cobalion from the Emerging Powers set. This is a basic, metal type Pokemon card with an hp of 110. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Cobalion doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Metal Horns which does 30 damage for two energy cards, one each of metal and colorless. After using this move, your opponent must switch their active Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon. Cobalion's second move is called Sacred Sword which does 100 damage for three energy cards, two metal and one colorless, however you can't use Sacred Sword two turns in a row.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, once you get three energy cards on Cobalion, use Sacred Sword first then the next turn Metal Horns, just keep rotating between those two moves. You could also use Metal Horns 2 or 3 turns, then retreat Cobalion and use a spread damage type Pokemon card and knock out 2 or 3 Pokemon at once that were affected by Metal Horns.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. For a stage 1 Pokemon card, this card has a high hp, and it has great attack power being able to do 100 damage, and 130 damage every two turns. I would mix this card with spread damage type Pokemon and prepare to knock out your opponent's Pokemon in bunches.
