Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Bronzong from the Next Destinies set. This is a Stage 1, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost. Bronzong's Ability is called Heal Block and says that damage cannot be healed from any Pokemon in play. Bronzong's only move is called Oracle Inflict which takes three energy cards, two colorless and one metal energy card, and does 30 damage plus 10 more damage for each card in your opponent's hand.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this card will definitely benefit a spread damage type deck, you can spread damage around on your opponent's Pokemon and have Bronzong on your bench and use its Ability so that your opponent can't heal any of that damage you're doling out on all their Pokemon. Other than keeping Bronzong on your bench and using its Ability, Oracle Inflict can be a good move whenever your opponent's hand is full. And since your opponent can't heal Pokemon while Bronzong is in play, hopefully they just keep their trainer cards in their hand thus making Bronzong's only move more powerful.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. This card could have been much better if one of its moves did some spread damage but it doesn't so that is why I am giving this card a lower rating than average. But if you have the space in your spread damage type deck, this card is a viable option. Just be careful when you put it in the active Pokemon spot when the retreat cost is so high.
