Terrakion -- Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Review

Terrakion Emerging Powers Pokemon CardPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Terrakion from the Emerging Powers set. This is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 120. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost. Terrakion doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Boulder Crush which does 40 damage for two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless. Terrakion's second move is called Sacred Sword which does 100 damage for three energy cards, two fighting and one colorless, however you can't use this move two turns in a row.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this card is fairly straightforward, I would recommend using Sacred Sword first and then you'll have to use Boulder Crush next, this card actually isn't that slow for a basic Pokemon card especially since it has 120 hp and can take some damage before getting knocked out. I would definitely recommend using this card in a fighting type deck, however once you put it in the active Pokemon spot I would go with it until it gets knocked out since its retreat cost is higher than any of its moves energy costs.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. This is a very powerful starter Pokemon for a game, you won't be able to attack the first turn but after that it will do 40 damage and then jumps up 100 damage the next turn. So if you go back and forth between its two moves it will be like you're doing 70 damage a turn which is great for a basic Pokemon.

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

The only bad thing and have to agree with you is the high retreat cost. Maybe Super Scoop Up would be of help here, but still.

Hi, Primetime Pokemon. Where can I get this Pikachu-card? Is it a Booster Pack, a tin, or what is it?
