Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Terrakion from the Noble Victories set. This is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost. It doesn't have an Ability, but it does have two moves, the first move is called Retaliate and does 30 damage for two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless. If any of your Pokemon were knocked out last turn this move does 90 damage instead of 30. Terrakion's other move is called Land Crush which takes three energy cards, two fighting and one colorless and does 90 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this is another card you'll definitely want to set up on your bench first. As soon as one of your Pokemon gets knocked out, you can move Terrakion in as long as it has two energy cards on it and then use Retaliate. After that use Land Crush every turn to knock out most Pokemon in two turns or less. Since Terrakion's retreat cost is higher than either of its energy costs for its attacks I would keep this card in the active Pokemon spot until it gets knocked out or you win the game.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. This card definitely seems like a stage 2 card to me but you don't have to worry about evolving it since it is a basic Pokemon. As long as you give Terrakion some time, this card should do well in your deck and you should be able to do 90 damage every turn.
