Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lucario from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set. This second of two consecutive Lucario cards I've reviewed from the Plasma storm set. This Lucario is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. This Lucario card does have an Ability, its Ability is called Dual Armor and says that if you have any Metal energy cards attached to Lucario it is both a fighting and metal type Pokemon. Besides the Ability, Lucario has only one move called Hurricane Kick, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one fighting, and does 60 damage plus 30 more damage for each prize card your opponent has taken.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lucario is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get one of the two Riolu cards from this set into play (I reviewed both of those cards the past few days) and then evolve Riolu into Lucario. If you read the past couple of reviews you'll know I thought both Riolu cards from this set were good, if you are going to use this Lucario card, I would actually recommend using the second Riolu card from this set because it is a little slower and can do more damage, and if you plan on using this card you want to keep Riolu on the bench anyways and start attaching energy cards to it so when you get Lucario in your hand you can evolve it right away and start using Hurricane Kick, but if you don't get Lucario in your hand right away, at least you'll have three energy cards on Riolu so you can do a fair amount of damage with that card with three energy cards. You may want to include some metal energy cards in this deck to utilize Lucario's Ability, if Lucario has two types it can be super effective attacking against twice as many Pokemon. If I were to use this Lucario card in my deck, I would use a 2-1 line of Riolu and Lucario in a fighting type deck. I would keep Lucario on the bench until the end of the game and put it in the active Pokemon spot as a last chance to win the game, the more prize cards your opponent has taken from you the better this card will perform.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an average stage 1 Pokemon card and a very solid Pokemon card to include in your deck to make sure that you have one last option before you lose the game. This card will give you a fighting chance to come back and win a game when you may be way down or your opponent only needs to knock out one Pokemon before you do. So if I was building a fighting type deck, I would definitely include this card in that deck. Overall, this Lucario card and either of the Riolu cards from this deck would get a 4 out of 5 rating.
