Sigilyph #42/98 -- Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Review

Sigilyph #42/98 Emerging Powers Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sigilyph from the Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second of two consecutive Sigilyph cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Sigilyph is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Sigilyph doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Quick Turn and for one psychic energy card this move does 10 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins.  Sigilyph's second move is called Psychic Assault and for three colorless energy cards it does 40 damage plus 10 more damage for each damage counter on the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this is a great card to use after you've used the Sigilyph card from yesterday.  I would suggest using that card right away, getting 50 damage on three or four of your opponent's Pokemon and then moving this Sigilyph card into play, you can then use Psychic Assault and do 90 damage every turn which will knock out most Pokemon in one turn.  If possible, I would keep this card on the bench until I got three energy cards on it.  I would include this card in almost any type deck as long as there are some spread damage type Pokemon in that deck, that way you could always do a good amount of damage with Psychic Assault.  I would include at least 2 Sigilyph cards in a deck, 1 each of the two Sigilyph cards from this set.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  Both of the Sigilyph cards from this set are equally as impressive and both received above average ratings, I especially like this card's ability to do a ton of damage with Psychic Assault and its low retreat cost.  So if you're looking for an attacker this is the Sigilyph card to use, otherwise use yesterday's card.
