Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Manectric from the Arceus set. This is a stage 1, electric type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a +20 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a free retreat cost. Manectric doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Second Bite and does 20 damage for two energy cards, one each of colorless and electric. For each damage counter on the defending Pokemon, this move does 10 more damage. Manectric's second move is called Swift and does 50 damage for three energy cards, one electric and two colorless. This move isn't affected by anything so it will always do 50 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this card has a free retreat cost, I would put two energy cards on Manectric on my bench, wait until a Pokemon has a fair amount of damage on it, then put Manectric into play and use Second Bite to knock it out. The next turn I would retreat Manectric for free and put in a better Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. This card is pretty average. The only good thing about the card is that it has a free retreat cost and can heavily damage already damaged Pokemon. This card isn't great to quickly do damage to a Pokemon and it takes too many energy cards to do only 50 damage.
