Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Braviary from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set. Braviary is a stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a free retreat cost. Braviary does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, its first move is called Slash which requires one colorless energy card and does 30 damage. Braviary's second move is called Fury Attack and for three colorless energy cards, this move does 50 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip three coins.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Braviary is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Rufflet into play (I reviewed Rufflet from this set yesterday) and then evolve Rufflet into Braviary. If you read yesterday's review, I would definitely not recommend using Rufflet on its own, but if for some reason you have to move that card into the active Pokemon spot you can use its first move to get Braviary into your hand and then evolve Rufflet into Braviary that next turn. Once you have Braviary into the active Pokemon spot, the number of energy cards you have attached to Braviary will determine which move you'll use. I would recommend using Fury Attack every turn because it has the potential to do 150 damage per turn. But if the defending Pokemon would be knocked out by 30 damage or less I would definitely use Slash over Fury Attack. Since Braviary has a free retreat cost, I could definitely see attaching three energy cards on to this card, and whenever your opponent uses a Pokemon that has a high hp, moving Braviary into the active Pokemon spot, try to knock out that defending Pokemon using Fury Attack for a turn or two, then retreating Braviary back to the bench for free. This card will work very well in any type deck, I would suggest using a 1-1 or 2-2 line of Rufflet and Braviary in any type deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is an above average stage 1 Pokemon card. I think this card is pretty good because it has a free retreat cost, is a colorless type Pokemon, good hp, and too very good moves. I like how this card is quick and can do a fair amount of damage with only one energy card using Slash, but if you give this card some time it may be able to do 150 damage per turn with Fury Attack. Once again, I would definitely recommend using this card in a deck.
