Zoroark -- Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Review

Zoroark Pokemon Card Emerging Powers setPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Zoroark from the Emerging Powers set. This is a stage 1, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Zoroark doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Fury Swipes which takes one darkness energy card and does 20 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip three coins. Zoroark's second move is called Night Daze which does 80 damage for three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, I would recommend putting three energy cards on this card and just rolling with Night Daze until Zoroark gets knocked out or you retreat it. I don't know if I would put it in a darkness type deck just because it is a Stage 1 card that needs three energy cards to do a major attack, if you end up putting Zoroark out there before it can do that move, you may not last long enough to use Night Daze since Zoroark only has 100 hp.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. Despite Zoroark's Legendary Status, this card is pretty average, it can do a lot of damage using both moves, but one requires some luck and the other takes awhile to be able to use. I would consider using this card but I would try to find better cards first.

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