Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Bisharp from the Noble Victories Pokemon Card Set. It sure seems like there are a ton of Bisharp cards in the newer sets...anyways...This is a stage 1, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Bisharp doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Finishing Blow and for one darkness energy card it does 20 damage plus 50 more damage if the defending Pokemon has any damage on it. Bisharp's second move is called Night Slash and for two energy cards, one each of darkness and colorless, it does 30 damage, and then you must switch Bisharp with one of your benched Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, I would make sure to have plenty of darkness energy cards in the deck so you can be certain that you'll be able to use Finishing Blow. In order to use Finishing Blow I would include this card in a spread damage type deck, so that when you move Bisharp into the active Pokemon spot, whatever Pokemon it will face will have damage on it, so you can do 70 damage every turn with Finishing Blow. What I more than likely would do, would be to find a Pokemon that can do spread damage and have a free retreat cost, I would use that Pokemon a turn or two, retreat it for free, use Bisharp's Finishing Blow the next turn, then the turn after that retreat by using Night Slash and put that spread damage type Pokemon in there again. Since we want to move Bisharp in and out of the active Pokemon spot it is important to get two energy cards on it so you can retreat using Night Slash.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. This is another, very solid stage 1, uncommon Pokemon card. This card is just as quick as yesterday's Mienshao card, and I would recommend it just the same, I like how this card has a low retreat cost, average hp, and two good moves, add this card to a deck with a spread damage type card and this card gets even better. I would use a 3-2 line of Pawniard and Bisharp in a dual type deck.
