Rapidash -- Arceus Pokemon Card Review

Rapidash Pokemon Card Arceus setPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rapidash from the Arceus set. This is a stage 1, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a +20 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and free retreat cost. Rapidash's Poke-Body is called Wild Guard and says that all effects of attacks are prevented by Rapidash by attacks from SP Pokemon. Besides the Poke-Body, Rapidash has two moves, the first move is called Fire Mane which does 20 damage for one fire energy card. Rapidash's second move is called Rising Lunge which takes three energy cards, two colorless and one fire and does 50 damage plus 20 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, I would consider putting a 2-1 line of Ponyta and Rapidash in your fire type deck just in case you face SP Pokemon, because if you do this card is unstoppable since SP Pokemon have no effect on Rapidash. Other than that, this card is pretty easy to make a strategy for, just attack with whatever move you have the amount of energy for.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. Rapidash's Poke-Body is nice but probably won't be used too often, and if it isn't used this card is pretty weak, both of its moves can't do much and with a low hp it will get knocked out pretty fast, just make sure to retreat it for free if you are closed to getting knocked out.

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