Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Liepard from the Emerging Powers set. This is a stage 1, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Liepard doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Feint Attack which takes one darkness energy card and does 30 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon of your choice. Liepard's second move is called Claw Rend which does 50 damage plus 30 more damage if the defending Pokemon has any damage counters on it already. This move costs three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness energy card.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, I would consider using this card in a spread damage type deck since Feint Attack can do damage to any of your opponent's Pokemon. If this card was in a spread damage type deck, I may not even attach three energy cards to Liepard to do Claw Rend, even though that move does quite a bit of damage, I may move Liepard in and out of play frequently just to knock out a benched Pokemon with Feint Attack and then retreat Liepard the next turn. You won't be able to keep Liepard in the active Pokemon spot too long since it only has 80 hp which is low for a stage 1 Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. Both of Liepard's moves are quite good, and if you are using this card for attacking it can do 110 damage in two turns which is just a bit under average for three energy cards. But it can attack any Pokemon with Feint Attack so that's what makes this card a little better than below average.
