Pokemon Card Overview:Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Eelektrik from the Noble Victories set. This is a stage 1, electric type Pokemon card that evolves from Tynamo and evolves into Eelektross. So you'll obviously want to use Eelektross as soon as possible when using this Pokemon line. Eelektrik has an hp of 90, a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Eelektrik's Ability is called Dynamotor and says that once during your turn before you attack you may move an electric energy card from your discard pile to one of your benched Pokemon. Besides the Ability, Eelektrik has one move called Electric Ball which does 50 damage for three energy cards, two electric and one colorless.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, if you're looking to use this card as your active Pokemon you'll not want to keep this card in that spot for long without evolving it to Eelektrik. I would actually recommend keeping Eelektrik on your bench and using its Ability to help your other benched Pokemon until you have to put it into the active Pokemon spot, at that time I would evolve Eelektrik into Elektross because it can do more damage and has a higher hp so it can last longer in play. If you do have to attack with Eelektrik you'll have to use Electric Ball every turn which isn't the greatest move but can knock out many basic Pokemon in two turns or less.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. Even though Electric Ball isn't that great and you'll want to evolve Eelektrik into Eelektross as soon as possible I still think this is a very good stage 1 Pokemon card because of its Ability, this card can be very useful in helping other electric type Pokemon who either have to discard energy cards every move or are slow, you can use Eelektrik's Ability every turn to stockpile energy cards on that slow Pokemon so when it is put into the active Pokemon spot it can attack right away. So overall I think Eelektrik's Ability is above average and its move is below average, thus evening out to be an average rating of 3 out of 5.
