Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Flygon from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set. Flygon is a stage 2, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140. Flygon is the stage 2 evolution of Vibrava, and before that Trapinch, both of those Pokemon I have reviewed the past couple of days, and both of those Pokemon are in this set. Flygon has a x2 weakness to dragon type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Flygon's Ability is called Sand Slammer and this ability allows you to once per turn put 1 damage counter on each of your opponent's Pokemon. Besides the Ability, Flygon only has one move called Flying Beatdown, this move requires four energy cards, two colorless, one fighting, and one grass, and does 80 damage. When using this move, if you discard a fighting and grass type energy card the defending Pokemon becomes paralyzed.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Flygon is a stage 2 Pokemon, you'll have to first get Trapinch and then Vibrava into play. Both of the previous Pokemon in this line are fairly solid, but I would still try and keep them on my bench if possible. Once you get Flygon into the active Pokemon, you're going to mainly use its Ability while it is in the active position. So you're going to want to include this Pokemon in a spread damage type deck, and have Pokemon that can spread damage quickly without evolving much, so that when you move Flygon into the active Pokemon spot, many of your opponent's Pokemon will have damage on them and Flygon's Ability could knock many of them out. While Flygon is on the bench you'll definitely want to attach four energy cards to it so you can use Flying Beatdown every turn, I would hardly ever discard energy cards when using this move, I would just do 80 damage every turn. I would keep Flygon in the active Pokemon spot until it is close to feinting then retreat it for only one energy card and move in another spread damage type Pokemon to finish off what Flygon started. I would definitely use this Pokemon line in a deck, and would use a 4-3-2 line of Trapinch, Vibrava, and Flygon in a fighting and grass type deck.
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 can do major damage to many different Pokemon at one time. I would definitely recommend building a deck around this Pokemon card. I really like Flygon's Ability and the fact that it can retreat for only one energy card. So overall, I would give this entire Pokemon line a 4 out of 5 rating, it is very solid.
