Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Conkeldurr from the Noble Victories set. This is the first of two Conkeldurr cards I'll be reviewing from this set. Conkeldurr is a stage 2, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost. Conkeldurr's Ability is called Craftmanship and says that this Pokemon gets 20 more hp for each fighting energy card attached to it. Besides the Ability, Conkeldurr has one move called Top Down which takes four energy cards, three colorless and one fighting and does 80 damage and lets you flip a coin until you get tails, for each heads you get discard the top card of your opponent's deck.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, you'll want to load this card up with fighting type energy cards on your bench and when you have four energy cards on it, move it into the active Pokemon spot. As long as you have four energy cards on it, its hp should be 220 when using its Ability and you should be able to do 80 damage per turn. You could always hope to use Conkeldurr late in the game and get three or four heads in a row a few times and make your opponent discard 6 or 7 cards in a row and possibly make them lose the game by running out of cards.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. I'll have to see how this compares to tomorrow's Conkeldurr card I will be reviewing but this one is an average stage 2 card that once given some time can do a fair amount of damage and last quite awhile with its high hp. Once again, this card has a high retreat cost so I wouldn't want to use too many of these cards in my deck because they are so slow and take up so many energy cards.
Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Conkeldurr from the Noble Victories set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of another Conkeldurr from the Noble Victories set.
