Gigalith -- Noble Victories Pokemon Card Review

Gigalith Pokemon Card Noble Victories SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gigalith from the Noble Victories set. This is a stage 2, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 150. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost. Gigalith doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Core Cannon and for one fighting energy card it does 20 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon for each fighting energy card you have attached to Gigalith. Gigalith's other move is called Power Gem and does 90 damage for four energy cards, three colorless and one fighting.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, I would hope to use this card in a spread damage type deck so you could utilize Core Cannon and possibly knock out your opponent's benched Pokemon very quickly, especially the basic ones. I would try and keep Gigalith on the bench until I got at least 3 energy cards on it, hopefully all fighting energy cards, and then use Core Cannon unless 90 damage would one hit KO the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. This is your typical stage 2, powerhouse Pokemon card that can do major damage and has a high hp to boot. What makes this more than an average stage 2 card is the fact that Gigalith can spread damage around using Core Cannon. Just be aware that you'll have to give up 4 energy cards to retreat Gigalith.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Gigalith from the Noble Victories set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of the first of two Conkeldurr cards from the Noble Victories set.
