Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Zebstrika from the Noble Victories set. This is a stage 1, electric type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Zebstrika doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Quick Attack which takes one colorless energy card and does 10 damage plus 20 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin. Zebstrika's second move is called Shock Bolt which does 90 damage for three energy cards, two electric and one colorless. However, when performing this move you have to flip a coin, if you get tails you have to discard all electric energy cards attached to this Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this card is extremely straightforward. Whichever move you have enough energy for, use that move. I would hope to use Shock Bolt every turn and never flip a tails. There isn't much else for strategy with this card, it is mostly a filler Pokemon in an electric type deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. Even though Zebstrika can do 90 damage in one turn, I still give this card a rating below the average. I don't like the fact you have to wait two turns for sure if you use Shock Bolt and flip a tails. I would have liked this card better if you only had to discard a set number of energy cards instead of all electric energy cards because if you only attach one type of energy to this Pokemon you are going to be able to use Shock Bolt once and then more than likely not be able to use it again because you'll get knocked out before two or three turns are over.
