Blastoise -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Blastoise Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Blastoise from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Blastoise is a stage 2, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  Blastoise is the stage 2 evolution of Wartortle, and before that Squirtle, both of those Pokemon I have reviewed the past couple of days, and both of those Pokemon are in this set.  Blastoise has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Blastoise's Ability is called Deluge and it says that as often you like during your turn you may attach a water energy card from your hand to one of your Pokemon.  Besides the Ability, Blastoise just has one move called Hydro Pump which requires four colorless energy cards and does 60 damage plus 10 more damage for each water energy card attached to this Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Blastoise is a stage 2 Pokemon, you'll have to first get Squirtle and then Wartortle into play.  I would recommend evolving this line on the bench, Squirtle's Ability even encourages it to be kept on the bench.  Once you get Blastoise on your bench I would use its Ability as often as possible since it is very good, and when you get four water energy cards on Blastoise I would move it into the active Pokemon spot and use Hydro Pump every turn, doing 100 damage per turn if you have four water energy cards attached to it.  I would put this card in a deck with a lot of Pokemon that require a ton of energy cards and can do a ton of damage, then I would make sure to include many energy cards, more than normal, and trainers to evolve Pokemon quickly.  That way you'll always have a good amount of energy cards in your hand, and evolved Pokemon in play, so make sure to get Blastoise on your bench as soon as possible, and you can power up all your powerful Pokemon at once, in no time at all.  I would definitely recommend building a deck around Blastoise and would use a 3-2-1 or 3-2-2 line of Squirtle, Wartortle, and Blastoise in a mostly water type deck.  I would make the deck mostly water type because Blastoise's Ability makes water Pokemon and Pokemon that require water energy cards to attack so fast.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an awesome stage 2 Pokemon card that I would definitely build a deck around.  It has a good hp, an amazing Ability that can set up your deck extremely fast, and a great move that can do 100+ damage per turn with no problems.  The only bad thing about this card is that it has a high retreat cost, but hopefully once you get Blastoise into that active Pokemon spot you won't have to retreat it for quite awhile.  Overall, I don't think Squirtle and Wartortle are very good, so I would only give this line a 4 out of 5 rating, but it is definitely worth it to stick it out using Squirtle and Wartortle because when you get to Blastoise it will definitely be worth it.

Jeremy said...

lol, I honestly have no idea what the answer is. I'm going to guess Kadabra because Psychic pokemon were broken back then and no one bothered to use a link cable to trade.

btw, I can't believe AP is going to break the rushing record, especially coming back from major surgery. Do you think he's going to win MVP?

Hmm... Could it be a Gyarados? (Tyler Hayward on Youtube and google+)

Still no correct answers...there are only so many options to choose from since I said it was a stage 2 starter Pokemon. @Jeremy I think he will win MVP if the Vikings make the playoffs, but I hope he breaks the rushing record for sure.

There is a correct answer out there, but each person can only guess once, so until someone new comes up with the correct answer there will be no winners.
