Chandelure -- Next Destinies Set Pokemon Card Review

Chandelure Next Destinies Pokemon CardPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Chandelure from the Next Destinies set. This is a Stage 2, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130. It has a x2 weakness to dark type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Chandelure's Ability is called Cursed Shadow and it says that any time between turns you may put 3 damage counters on your opponent's Pokemon in any way you like, if Chandelure is your active Pokemon. Besides the Ability, Chandelure has one move called Eerie Glow which takes three energy cards, two psychic and one colorless and does 50 damage and burns and confuses the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this is an absolutely great spread damage type Pokemon card and needs to be in every spread damage type deck. As soon as you can get three energy cards on Chandelure put it into the active Pokemon spot and start using Eerie Glow and putting the 30 damage on your opponent's Pokemon in any way you like with Cursed Shadow. I would recommend spreading some damage around on your opponent's Pokemon before putting Chandelure into play so when you do put Chandelure into play you can potentially knock out weak Pokemon with Chandelure's Ability.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. This card definitely has one of the best Abilities I have seen on a card yet, besides the card I reviewed yesterday. This card has a great move and can be a great annoyer in battle since it can spread damage around and inflict two special conditions on the active Pokemon. The only downside to this card is that it can't do too much outright damage and its hp is somewhat low.

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

With dodrios free retreat ability, having multiple chandelure on the bench to spread damage for 30 then retreat, spread another 30 then eerie glow is unbelievable damage output
