Gengar #17/99 -- Arceus Pokemon Card Review

Gengar #17/99 Pokemon Card Arceus SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gengar from the Arceus set. This is the second of two Gengar reviews from this set. This is a stage 2, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120. It has a +30 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to colorless type Pokemon, and a free retreat cost. This Gengar doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Sharpshooting and does 40 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon for two energy cards, one each of psychic and colorless. Gengar's other move is called Poison Jab and for three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, it does 60 damage plus it poisons the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, I would recommend using this card with a spread type deck and the Gengar card I reviewed yesterday. I would recommend using this card first, using Sharpshooting and then use the Gengar card from yesterday's Poke-Body to spread that damage around even more. I would definitely move this card in and out of play whenever I want to attack my opponent's bench. Both this and yesterday's Gengar have free retreat costs so they can both wreak havoc on your opponents.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. Both Gengar cards from this set are pretty comparable. Both are quite good and I would recommend using both in any psychic type deck. Just make sure to retreat them often so they don't get knocked out since both have low hp for stage 2 Pokemon.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Gengar from the Arceus set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Glalie from the Arceus set.
