White Kyurem -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

White Kyurem Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of White Kyurem from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  White 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.  White Kyurem does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move it has is called Damage Rush, this move requires two energy cards, one each of fire and colorless, and does 20 damage times the number of heads you get until you flip a tails.  White Kyurem's second move is called Cold Fire, this move requires four energy cards, two colorless and one each of water and fire, and does 80 damage plus 40 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since White 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 fire 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 fire Pokemon.  White Kyurem is not fast, so you'll want to set this card up on your bench, your best bet is to put four energy cards on White Kyurem then when it is in the active Pokemon spot it will be able to use Cold Fire every turn.  If you have to put White Kyurem into the active Pokemon spot before it has four energy cards on it, attach an energy card each turn and use Damage Rush if you can until you can use Cold fire.  This card is pretty similar to Black Kyurem, but these cards won't work well in a deck since they require different types of energy cards.  I would suggest using 1 or 2 of these cards in a dual type deck that includes water and fire 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 fire type deck.

Mundo Gélido (Glaciate in english) is a move that only Kyurem can learn. Although Victini can learn it through an event.
