Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lopunny from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set. Lopunny is a stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Lopunny does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move this card has is called Healing Melody, this move requires one colorless energy card and heals 60 damage from each of your Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin. Lopunny's second move is called Kick Away, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 60 damage, plus your opponent must switch their active Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lopunny is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Buneary into play (I reviewed Buneary from this set yesterday) and then evolve Buneary into Lopunny. If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Buneary was a pretty solid basic Pokemon card that can be used on its own in a deck. So if you choose to use this Pokemon family in your deck and get Buneary in your hand to start the game I would definitely recommend putting it into the active Pokemon spot immediately. I would stick with Buneary until you get three energy cards on it, then evolve Buneary into Lopunny. I would then use Kick Away to do damage, with Kick Away's ability to switch the defending Pokemon, this move is pretty similar to a spread damage type move. So I would use Kick Away a view turns to spread the damage around, then retreat Lopunny for one energy card and later in the game when many of your Pokemon have damage on them I would move this card back into the active Pokemon spot and use Healing Melody once to try and heal all of them. I would definitely include this family in any type deck, I would use a 2-1 or 2-2 line of Buneary and Lopunny. I would try to include Pokemon in the deck I'm using these Pokemon in to have low retreat costs and Pokemon that can spread damage.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an above average stage 1 Pokemon card. Everything about this card is pretty good, it has an average hp, low retreat cost, two very good moves. I like that this card can heal major damage from all of your Pokemon and dole out major damage as well, as well as spread that damage around. Overall this is an extremely good Pokemon line, I would give this line a 5 out of 5 rating, it is an excellent line.
