Heatmor -- Noble Victories Pokemon Card Review

Heatmor Noble Victories Pokemon CardPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Heatmor from the Noble Victories set. This is a basic, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Heatmor doesn't have an Ability, but it does have two moves, the first move is called Singe and for one fire energy card it burns the defending Pokemon. Heatmor's second move is called Incinerate which does 30 damage for two energy cards, one each of colorless and fire, besides doing the damage, you may also discard a Pokemon Tool card attached to the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a basic Pokemon card I would recommend getting this card into the active Pokemon spot as soon as possible and then use Singe first, burning the defending Pokemon and then using Incinerate after that. Any time Heatmor faces a new Pokemon I would always use Singe on that Pokemon first, that way if Heatmor is knocked out or retreats, the burn still takes effect. Like the Amoonguss card from a couple of days ago, you'll want to use this card in a spread damage type deck so you can possibly knock out your opponent's Pokemon in a turn or two, if your opponent's Pokemon come into the active Pokemon spot with 20 or 30 damage on them already and then Heatmor uses Singe on them.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. This card is eerily similar to the Amoonguss card I reviewed a couple of days ago, it has the same moves (basically), same hp, and same retreat cost. So there is no way I'm rating this card any differently, this card may be a bit better just because it is a basic Pokemon and you don't have to evolve it to play it.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Heatmor from the Noble Victories set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Palpitoad from the same set.
