Lapras -- Next Destinies Set Pokemon Card Review

Lapras Next Destinies Pokemon CardPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lapras from the Next Destinies set. This is a basic, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Lapras doesn't have an Ability, but it does have two moves, the first move is called Call for Family and takes one water energy card and allows you to search your deck for two basic Pokemon and put them on your bench. Lapras's second move is called Reckless Charge which does 40 damage for two colorless energy cards, however this move does 20 damage to Lapras.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this would be a decent starter Pokemon since it can quickly get other basic Pokemon on your bench, and even though it would be a fairly slow starter Pokemon, when you get the necessary energy on it, it could knock out a weak basic Pokemon in a turn or two. I would possibly have one Lapras in my deck and just use Call for Family and not attack with this card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. I don't like this card at all, it has a high hp, but that is where the positivity stops with this card. A trainer card can easily replace Lapras's first move, and it doesn't make any sense to attack with Reckless when it only does 40 damage to the other Pokemon and 20 damage to yourself.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Lapras from the Next Destinies set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Articuno from the same set.
