Zorua -- Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Review

Zorua Emerging Powers Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Zorua from the Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Set.  Zorua is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Zorua does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves, the first move is called Ram and for one darkness energy card it does 10 damage.  Zorua's second move is called Rising Lunge which takes two energy cards, one each of darkness and colorless, and does 20 damage plus 10 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 card that has a stage 1 evolution in Zoroark, I would recommend keeping Zorua on the bench and evolving it into Zoroark before putting it into play, I would do this because Zoroark can do much more damage than Zorua and it has a higher hp.  There is one Zoroark card in this set, and I've reviewed that card on my blog previously.  If you have to put Zorua into the active Pokemon spot, I would recommend using Rising Lunge every turn since it does more damage than Ram, but of course if you only have one energy card on Zorua you have no choice but to use Ram.  But like I said I would definitely try and use Zoroark if at all possible, and if I were to use Zorua in a deck, I would include it with Zoroark and use a 2-2 or 2-1 line of Zorua and Zoroark.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  This is another below average stage 1 Pokemon card, Zorua has a low hp, and two weak moves.  The only good thing about this card is that it can do damage very quickly but I stress again, you'll want to use Zoroark as soon as possible instead of Zorua.
