Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Magmar from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set. Mamgar is a basic, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Magmar does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves, the first move is called Beat and for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage. Magmar's second move is called Magma Punch, this move requires three energy cards, two fire and one colorless, and does 50 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a basic Pokemon card with an evolution in Magmortar, I would not put this card into the active Pokemon spot unless I evolved it into Magmortar first, I would keep Magmar on the bench and attach up to three energy cards to it, since Magmortar can do 90 damage in one turn if it has three energy cards on it. If you have to move Magmar to the active Pokemon spot, I would try and use Magma Punch since it does more damage than Beat, but if you only are using Magmar in the deck or you aren't going to be able to evolve Magmar into Magmortar, I wouldn't waste the energy cards in the deck by attaching them to Magmar and then having Magmar get knocked out. Tomorrow, after reviewing Magmar I'll have a better idea how many of each Pokemon in this line to use in a deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. This card is a below average basic Pokemon card, the thing that makes this card somewhat good is that it has a high hp for a basic Pokemon so you have a bit more time to get three energy cards on it to use Magma Punch. Unfortunately, neither of Magmar's moves are very good, so I would not use this card unless I wanted to use Magmortar in the deck.
