Gigalith -- Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Review

Gigalith Pokemon Card Emerging Powers setPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gigalith from the Emerging Powers set. This is a stage 2, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost. Gigalith doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Shear which takes one fighting energy card and allows you to discard the top 5 cards from your deck and attach the fighting energy cards from those 5 cards to Gigalith. Gigalith's second move is called Rock Bullet which does 40 damage plus 20 more damage for each fighting energy card attached to Gigalith for four colorless energy cards. So, if you attach four fighting energy cards to this card, Rock Bullet can do 120 damage every turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, you'll need to get plenty of energy cards on this card in order to attack. I would suggest figuring out a way to stack the top of your deck with energy cards so you can use Shear and get them attached to Gigalith extremely fast. Even if you have to wait until the end of the game to get four energy cards on Gigalith, you should be able to knock out everything in two moves if you attach four fighting type energy cards to this card. Attach 5 fighting energy cards and you should be able to knock out most Pokemon in one move and hopefully win the game for yourself near the end.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. Once you get four fighting energy cards on this Pokemon, you should be able to win the game or at least knock out quite a few Pokemon. The only downside to this card is that it has a huge retreat cost, so if you decide to retreat this card you'll have to wait a long time again to use Rock Bullet again.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Gigalith from the Emerging Powers set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Excadrill from the Emerging Powers set.
