Tornadus Ultra Rare -- Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Review

Tornadus Pokemon Card Emerging Powers setPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Tornadus from the Emerging Powers set. This is a basic, ultra rare, normal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. It does not have a special ability, but it does have two moves, the first move is called Energy Wheel and for one colorless energy card you may move an energy card from one of your benched Pokemon to Tornadus. Tornadus' second move is called Hurricane and for three colorless energy cards, this move does 80 damage, however when you use this move you have to move an energy card from this Pokemon to one of your benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, depending on when you get Tornadus into the game will decide how you use this card. If you can set it up on your bench first, then you can just go right ahead and use Hurricane, otherwise I would recommend using Energy Wheel and then Hurricane the next turn. If you can withstand a turn without attacking, you can use Energy Wheel every other turn to replenish Tornadus and still be able to attach an energy card to another one of your Pokemon. This card is pretty much identical to Thundurus from yesterday, however you can put this card into any type deck since it is a normal type Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. This card can do a fair amount of damage and do this damage fairly quickly. It has a low retreat cost for the amount of damage it can do, and you can do damage every turn as long as you can attach an energy card every turn. Just make sure when you want to use Energy Wheel that you do indeed have energy attached to one of your benched Pokemon. This is an average card that can do major damage but not every turn, unless you have a ton of energy in your hand.

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

I got this from a random pack.
It's also usefull to first set on the bench with around the 5-6 energy cards and then use hurricane each turn to deal major damage and giving the energy cards to a pokemon who has slow-very slow
moves to rush in cuz of the low retreat cost and deal majow damage with that pokemon.
Could be also usefull if you use victini full art from noble victories by giving stored power and chain off to tornadus to not lose any energy.
But the weakness is that victini deals less damage
