Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Zapdos from the Arceus set. This is a basic, SP, electric type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -2o resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Zapdos doesn't have a Poke-Power or Poke-Body but it does have two moves, the first move is called Charge Beam which does 10 damage for one colorless energy card and allows you to search your deck for an energy card and attach it to Zapdos if you flip a heads. Zapdos's second move is called Lightning Strike and for three energy cards, two electric and one colorless, it does 40 damage, however you may discard all electric energy cards attached to Zapdos and then this move does 80 damage instead of 40.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, I wouldn't recommend using this card at all, it can hardly do any damage for one energy card, and if you wait to get three energy cards on Zapdos, you'll just end up discarding them if you want to do any damage at all. So once again I wouldn't suggest using any SP cards, they are worthless most of the time.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. I don't know why Nintendo published SP Pokemon, most of them are just terrible and just makes these Pokemon that are usually pretty good just look worthless. I would hardly ever recommend using SP Pokemon, and if you want Zapdos in your deck find a non SP Zapdos to use.
