Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Klang from the Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Set. Klang is a stage 1, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Klang doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move takes one colorless energy card and confuses the defending Pokemon, this move is called Metal Sound. Klang's second move is called Guard Press and for three energy cards, two metal and one colorless it does 60 damage and any attacks on Klang during your opponent's next turn is reduced by 20.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a stage 1 Pokemon card that has a stage 2 evolution in Klinklang, I would recommend keeping Klang on the bench and evolving it into Klinklang before putting it into play, I would do this because Klinklang can do much more damage than Klang and it has a higher hp. There is one Klinklang card in this set, and I've reviewed that card on my blog previously. If you have to put Klang into play, I would recommend using Guard Press every turn because it is the only move that can do damage to your opponent's active Pokemon, but if you don't have three energy cards on Klang you'll have to use Confuse and hope that the defending Pokemon attacks itself instead of Klang the next turn. If I were to use Klang in a deck, I would make sure to include Klingklang in that deck and use a 4-3-2 or 3-2-1 line of Klink, Klang, and Klinklang.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. This card is an average, stage 1 Pokemon card, even though it does have lower hp than most stage 1 Pokemon, as long as you can get three energy cards on Klang and use Guard Press, Klang basically has 100 damage on it. But like I said earlier in this review, make sure to evolve Klang into Klinklang as early as possible to make Klang more useful in your deck.
