Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gliscor from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set. Gliscor is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to lightning type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Gliscor does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. Gliscor's first move is called Poison Ring, this move does 20 damage for one fighting energy card plus it poisons the defending Pokemon and makes it unable to retreat during their next turn. Gliscor's second move is called Night Slash, this move requires two energy cards, one each of colorless and fighting, and does 40 damage, however after using this move you must switch Gliscor with one of your benched Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Gliscor is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Gligar into play (I reviewed Gligar from this set yesterday) and then evolve Gligar into Gliscor. If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Gligar was a very solid starter Pokemon so more than likely if you had Gligar in your hand early in the game it would be out in the active Pokemon spot. Because Gligar requires the same amount of energy as Gliscor to attack, whenever you get Gliscor into your hand you can evolve it right away and keep attacking. I would include Gliscor in a deck that included Pokemon with all low or free retreat costs, that way you could use Poison Ring one turn, poison the defending Pokemon, then the next turn use Night Slash and retreat for free. Then when the active Pokemon is knocked out, you can move your active Pokemon which should have a free retreat cost to your bench for Gliscor then you can repeat the poisoning retreating process with Gliscor. I would recommend using a 2-1 line of Gligar and Gliscor in at least a dual type deck of fighting type Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an average stage 1 Pokemon card. This card has an above average hp, low retreat cost, and two solid moves. I like how Gliscor does not require much energy to attack and it can retreat for free when using Night Slash. Overall, I think Gliscor and Gligar make a great Pokemon line and I would give these two Pokemon a 4 out of 5 rating together.
