Lampent -- Noble Victories Pokemon Card Review

Lampent Pokemon Card Noble Victories Set
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lampent from the Noble Victories set. This is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card that evolves from Litwick and evolves into Chandelure. Lampent has an hp of 80, a x2 weakness to dark type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Lampent doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Luring Light and for one colorless energy card it allows you to switch the defending Pokemon with one of the benched Pokemon. Lampent's second move is called Will-O-Wisp and for two energy cards, one each of psychic and colorless, it does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a stage 1 Pokemon card that has a stage 2 evolution I would try to evolve Lampent into Chandelure as soon as possible and preferably on the bench. However if you have to play Lampent in the active Pokemon spot I would use Will-O-Wisp every turn except for the turn before you want to evolve Lampent into Chandelure, I would use Luring Light that turn so when Chandelure attacks next turn it can knock out that newly active Pokemon in one move.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. This stage 1 Pokemon card is definitely is better than the Duosion uncommon card I reviewed yesterday but overall this card still isn't that great. I do like how it has two moves, even though either move isn't spectacular, but it does have a low hp which hurts it especially if you can't evolve Lampent into Chandelure very quickly.

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