Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Victini from the Noble Victories set. This is the first of three Victini cards I'll be reviewing from this set. This is a basic, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 60. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Victini's Ability is called Victory Star and says that once during your turn you may re-flip any coins you flipped during that turn. So if you didn't get very good results this Ability basically is a do-over. Besides the Ability, Victini has one move called Store Power which takes two energy cards, one each of fire and colorless and does 30 damage, after using this move you must move all energy attached to this Pokemon to one of your benched Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, I would definitely use this card in decks where you have a lot of cards that depend on coin flips, that way you could keep this card on your bench the whole game and get two chances every turn at doing even more damage by getting better coin flip results. Other than its Ability, this card isn't too bad of a starter Pokemon since it can do 30 damage after two turns and then the energy can be put on a Pokemon that needs the energy cards more.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. I really do like this Pokemon's Ability but since its only move makes you remove all energy cards from Victini you're going to have to spend an additional turn attaching an energy to this card to be able to retreat it. So I would definitely use this card in a fire type deck but I would keep it on my bench as long as possible.
Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Victini from the Noble Victories set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of the second of three Victini cards from the Noble Victories set.
