Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Volcarona from the Noble Victories set. This is a stage 1, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Volcarona doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Fiery Dance which does 30 damage for one fire energy card and besides doing the damage you may move one energy card from your discard pile to one of your Pokemon. Volcarona's other move is called Heat Wave and for three energy cards, two colorless and one fire it does 60 damage and burns the defending Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this card is extremely straightforward. Just use the move you have the necessary energy cards for, I would prefer to use Heat Wave the entire time. The only time I would consider using Fiery Dance would be if I needed to attach energy cards to my benched Pokemon and the defending Pokemon wouldn't be knocked out by doing 60 damage to it.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. This card is slightly above average for a stage 1 Pokemon card, it has 20 more hp than most stage 1 cards, it can do a move very quickly requiring only 1 energy card and it can do the standard 60 damage for 3 energy cards plus it burns the defending Pokemon. So if you're looking for a few fire cards to put into your deck, Volcarona may consider a look.
