Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lampent from the Next Destinies set. Lampent is a stage 1 Pokemon card that evolves from Litwick and evolves into Chandulure. Lampent is a fire type Pokemon with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Lampent only has one move called Ember which take two colorless energy cards and does 40 damage, when using this move you have to flip a coin, if you get tails you must discard an energy card attached to Lampent.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, if you don't have Chandelure in your deck there is no reason to use this card at all. But if you do and you are forced to put Lampent into the active Pokemon spot, your only choice is to use Ember and hope to not get a tails when flipping a coin. I would make sure to have supporters in the deck so you can make sure and evolve Lampent into Chandelure as soon as possible because this card isn't good at all, especially if you can't attack.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. This card definitely doesn't deserve even being an uncommon card, it is absolutely worthless. Like I said the only reason to use this card is because it is necessary to have to evolve into Chandelure. If you were to play this card in a deck, I would run a 4-2-2 line. Besides the fact that this card is pretty worthless, now that I look at the picture it sure is strange how a Pokemon can basically be a lantern. It just doesn't make any sense and Nintendo should have created a better Pokemon than this, actually if I were them I wouldn't have created any more Pokemon and just left them the way they were. So sorry about ranting, I hope tomorrow's card is a bit better than today's card.
Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
