Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Heracross from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set. Heracross is a basic, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Heracross does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves. Its first move is called Horn Attack and for one grass energy card this move does 20 damage. Heracross's second move is called Giga Horn and for three energy cards, two grass and one colorless, this move does 80 damage, however if you get two tails when you flip two coins, this move does not do anything.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a basic Pokemon card with no evolutions, you only need to include this card in the deck if you want to use it. I would suggest using Heracross as a starter Pokemon in a grass type deck. I would use 1 in a deck, and try and get that card into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, that way during your first turn you can do 20 damage using Horn Attack and two turns later you can do 80 damage. So to summarize, move this card into your active Pokemon spot right away, and start attaching energy cards to it until you get three on it. Once you have three, battle for as long as you can and then either retreat Heracross or let it get knocked out.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is an above average basic Pokemon card from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon card set. This card has an above average hp, and two great moves. I like how this card is both quick (i.e. Horn Attack) and can do a good amount of damage (i.e. Giga Horn) this card is great overall, and would make a great starter Pokemon card in a deck, much better than yesterday's Scyther card at that.
