Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Tepig from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set. Tepig is a basic, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 60. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Tepig does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves. The first move is called Flare which requires one fire energy card does 10 damage. Tepig's second move is called Rollout and for two energy cards, one each of fire and colorless, this move does 20 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Tepig has a stage 1 evolution in Pignite, and a stage 2 evolution in Emboar, I would definitely recommend including both those two Pokemon in a deck with Tepig. Tepig would be an excellent starter Pokemon to start the game with because it is very quick and has two moves that can do damage. After a couple of turns Tepig won't be that great, but early in the game it is excellent, I would try and get Pignite into your hand after two turns so that after you use Rollout once you can evolve Tepig into Pignite. Strategy wise, make sure to put Tepig in the active Pokemon spot immediately and use Rollout if you can every turn, or if you don't get Tepig into the active Pokemon spot right away, leave it on the bench and evolve it up to Emboar. This card is good on its own, but I would definitely recommend using its evolutions. If you want to use this card on its own, I would use 1 or 2 in a fire type deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is a very solid basic Pokemon card. I am giving this card a slightly above average rating because it is so solid. It has a good hp, two good moves, and a low retreat cost. For a basic Pokemon card that has two evolutions this card is excellent and I would definitely suggest using this card to start off a Pokemon line ending in Emboar.
