Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Beartic from the Next Destinies set. This is a Stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Beartic doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Daunt which does 40 damage for two colorless energy cards. Besides doing the damage, any damage done to Beartic during your opponent's next turn is reduced by 20. Beartic's second move is called Ambush which takes three energy cards, two colorless and one water and does 60 damage plus 30 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this is a great water type Pokemon card to include in a water type deck. I like how its first move improves Beartic's defense and makes its 120 hp seem even higher and with some luck Beartic can do 90 damage every turn with Ambush. I would recommend setting this card up on your bench and when you put Beartic in the active Pokemon spot using Ambush every turn, unless the defending Pokemon will be knocked out by only 40 damage then I would use Daunt so Beartic's defense is increased the next turn.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. Even though this card can do a major amount of damage with Ambush, I think overall this card is an average card. 90 damage per turn is great, don't get me wrong, but Beartic's retreat cost is a little high, and Beartic is pretty slow so you're going to have to spend some time setting it up on your bench before it can be very effective.
Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
