Heatmor -- Dark Explorers Pokemon Card Review

Heatmor Dark Explorers Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Heatmor from the Dark Explorers Pokemon Card 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 one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Heatmor doesn't have an Ability, but it does have two moves, the first move is called Hot Lick which takes one colorless energy card and does 10 damage plus 50 more damage if the defending Pokemon is Durant.  Heatmor's second move is called Firebreathing and for three energy cards, two colorless and one fire, it does 50 damage plus 20 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a basic Pokemon that doesn't evolve into anything, you can put this card into your active Pokemon spot as soon as you get it onto your bench, you can start attacking right away with Hot Lick, even though the move doesn't do very much, unless for some reason your opponent uses Durant, I would attack with Hot Lick until Heatmor gets three energy cards on it then use Firebreathing the rest of the time retreating when Heatmor is close to being knocked out.  I would only use 1 Heatmor in a deck since it is a basic Pokemon, and I would preferably keep Heatmor on the bench until it gets three energy cards on it so it can use Firebreathing right away.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  This card is a poor rare card from the Dark Explorers set, even though it has good high for a basic Pokemon, a good retreat cost, and is fairly quick this card just isn't very good overall, it can't do much damage (unless you're lucky) and even then it really can't do too much.  I would recommend finding a better fire type Pokemon to put in your deck instead of using this card.

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