Klinklang -- Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Review

Klinklang Emerging Powers Set Pokemon Card Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Klinklang from the Emerging Powers set. This is stage 2, metal type Pokemon card that is the final evolution of Klink. This card has an hp of 150, a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost. Klinklang doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Charge Beam which does 30 damage for one metal energy card, plus you can attach an energy card from your discard pile to this Pokemon when using this move. Klinklang's other move is called Zap Cannon and requires three energy cards, one metal and two colorless, and does 80 damage, however if you get a tails when you flip a coin you can't use this move next turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, you can use Pokemon that discard energy cards when attacking if you use this card in your deck, since you can use Charge Beam and attach them from your discard pile to Klinklang. If you aren't concerned with getting energy cards back from your discard pile I would recommend using Zap Cannon as often as you can, you should be able to use it quite a bit if you don't flip tails since Klinklang does have a high hp and should be able to last a few turns without being knocked out.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. I like that this card has a high hp but I don't like that this card is a stage 2 card and can't attack for major damage consistently every turn, I don't know why you shouldn't be able to use Zap Cannon every turn. Besides not being able to do much damage every single turn, you'll have to add even more energy to Klinklang to retreat it.

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