Black Kyurem -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Black Kyurem Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Black Kyurem from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Black Kyurem is a basic, dragon type Pokemon card with an hp of 130. It has a x2 weakness to dragon type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Black Kyurem does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move it has is called Dual Claw, this move requires two energy cards, one each of lightning and colorless, and does 20 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins.  Black Kyurem's second move is called Flash Freeze, this move requires four energy cards, two colorless and one each of water and lightning, and does 100 damage.  However after using this move, an energy card must be discarded from Black Kyurem.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Black Kyurem is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  Even though this card is a dragon type card, you'll notice that its moves require water and lightning energy cards, so for this card to be at its best, it will be best to include this card in a dual type deck of water and lightning Pokemon.  Black Kyurem is not fast, so you'll want to set this card up on your bench, you'll benefit the most if you get 4 plus energy cards on this Pokemon so you can move it into the active Pokemon spot and use Flash Freeze consecutive turns.  Make sure to have plenty of energy cards in your hand and attached to Black Kyurem at all times, to do this, make sure your deck has a good amount of energy cards.  I would recommend using Flash Freeze every turn, but if you don't have enough energy cards to use Flash Freeze, you'll have to use Dual Claw instead, just hope you have some luck when using this move.  Because Black Kyurem requires so many energy cards to attack, I would suggest only using one of these cards in a deck that includes lightning and water energy cards.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card.  This card does have above average hp, and one good move, but its retreat cost isn't low, neither of its attacks are quick, and its first move may not do any damage at all.  This card definitely won't be the centerpiece of any deck, but it may make a nice addition to a water and lightning type deck.

The other color would be White Kyurem, a result of fusing Kyurem with Reshiram (or Kyurem borrowing Reshiram's powers, according to the anime).
