Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Zekrom from the Next Destinies set. This is the first of two consecutive Zekrom reviews, tomorrow's review will be of the EX version. This is a basic, electric type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Zekrom doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Outrage and for two colorless energy cards it does 20 damage plus 10 more damage for each damage counter on Zekrom. Zekrom's second move is called Bolt Strike which takes three energy cards, two electric and one colorless, and does 120 damage however it does 40 damage to itself.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, you'll want to get three energy cards on this card before you put it into the active Pokemon spot, when you have three energy cards on it, put it in that active Pokemon spot and use Bolt Strike as often as you can until you don't have much remaining hp, then use Outrage until you either die or retreat. I'll have to see how this card compares to the EX version, but I would recommend at least two of these cards in an electric type deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating. This card deserves a perfect rating because this card not only has one move that can do more than 100 damage every turn but two. Any card that is capable of doing that deserves a 5 out of 5 in my book. This card is actually quicker than Reshiram which is very similar so if you like power I would recommend building an electric and fire type deck and include both of these cards.
Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Zekrom from the Next Destinies set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Zekrom EX from the same set.
