Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Carracosta from the Noble Victories set. This is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost. Carracosta's Ability is called Solid Rock and says that if any damage is done to this Pokemon by attacks flip a coin and if heads reduce that damage by 50. Besides the Ability, Carracosta has one move called Crunch which does 80 damage for four energy cards, two each of water and colorless. Besides doing the damage, you may discard an energy attached to the defending Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this card is quite slow, but I would recommend getting this card into your active Pokemon spot as soon as possible. Not only does this Pokemon have a high hp, but it can take massive amounts of damage with its Ability and do 80 damage each turn and possibly make your opponent unable to attack the next turn. So like I said, get this card into the active Pokemon spot as soon as possible and attack with Crunch every turn, hopefully this card will last quite awhile and you can then set up your other Pokemon on your bench while this Pokemon stalls and knocks out defending Pokemon at the same time.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating. This card truly is amazing, not only does it have the stats of a stage 2 card, but it can defend too. Besides its retreat cost, this card can defend, attack, and stall like the best Pokemon out there. So if you're looking to build a water type deck, this card should definitely be in it.
