Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Tranquill from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set. Tranquill is a stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Tranquill does not have an Ability and it only has one move. Its only move is called Air Slash, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 60 damage. However, after using this move, an energy card must be discarded from Tranquill.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Tranquill is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Pidove into play (I reviewed Pidove from this set yesterday) and then evolve Pidove into Tranquill. Tranquill does have a stage 2 evolution in Unfezant that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Tranquill is the final evolution in this line. So if you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Pidove was a below average basic Pokemon card that I would not use in a deck, so this card will have to be above average before I would consider using this Pokemon card in a deck. I know I have not reviewed this card yet (gave it a score) but I would not use this card in a deck with just Pidove. I say this because Tranquill has a below average hp and one move that does average damage but has an energy discarded. So if you do choose to use this card in your deck, I would only use a 2-1 or a 1-1 line of Pidove and Tranquill in any type deck. I would try and evolve Pidove into Tranquill on the bench then use Air Slash every turn. The one thing Tranquill has going for it is that it can be used in any type deck, but this still doesn't make me want to use this card.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a very below average stage 1 Pokemon card. Like I mentioned above, the only thing this card has going for it is its type, besides that, this card has a low hp, and a below average move. You'll definitely want to stay away from this line so far, you can definitely find a better stage 1 colorless type Pokemon card to use in your deck.
