Glalie -- Arceus Pokemon Card Review

Glalie Pokemon Card Arceus SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Glalie from the Arceus set. This is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a +20 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Glalie doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Wreck which does 20 damage for two colorless energy cards, however if there is a Stadium card in play this move does 70 damage instead of 20, the Stadium card is discarded after your turn. Glalie's second move is called Avalanche which does 50 damage for three energy cards, two water and one colorless, and if you get a heads when you flip a coin this move does 10 damage to all of your opponent's benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, you'll obviously want to use this card in a deck with a lot of Stadium Cards in it so you can do 70 damage instead of 20 damage with Wreck. Other than that, I would pair this card up with other water Pokemon that do spread damage, so I could potentially knock out a couple of my opponent's benched Pokemon at a time if I flip a heads when I use Avalanche.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. This card is pretty average overall, it has the standard hp for a stage 1 card, does less than average damage for three energy cards, and has an average retreat cost. If you're looking for another water type Pokemon that can do some spread damage I would consider using this card in your deck.

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