Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Emboar from the Next Destinies set. This is a Stage 2, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 150. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost. Emboar's Ability is called Inferno Pandango and it says that any time you like during your turn you may move a fire energy card from your hand to one of your Pokemon. Besides the Ability, Emboar has one move called Heat Crash which does 80 damage for four energy cards, two each of fire and colorless.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this is a must have card for any fire type deck out there. As long as you have this card on your bench, your fire Pokemon will be able to attack at will, even if they have to discard energy cards every turn. So make sure when using this card in your deck to have plenty of energy cards and plenty of ways to get energy cards from your deck into your hand. Also when you put Emboar into the active Pokemon spot, which I wouldn't do until late in the game, I would use Heat Crash every turn. I would put a 4-3-2 line of Emboar in my deck.
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. I wish the move would have been a little better though, however overall this is a great card.
