Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Haxorus from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set. Haxorus is a stage 2, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140. It has a x2 weakness to dragon type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Haxorus does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Dragonaxe, for one metal energy card, this move does 40 damage times the amount of metal energy attached to this card. Haxorus's second move is called Strike of the Champion, for two energy cards, one each of fighting and metal, this move knocks out the defending Pokemon if it is a Team Plasma type Pokemon, otherwise the move does nothing.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Haxorus is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Axew into play and then evolve it into Fraxure before you can evolve Fraxure into Haxorus, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days. Both of the Pokemon in this line that I've reviewed have been below average cards, which would be closer to average if they didn't require such a strange combination of energy types to attack, so if this card is pretty good, those two Pokemon, Axew and Fraxure, will actually be better than I originally rated them. So after summarizing this Haxorus card in the overview section of this post, I would definitely recommend building a fighting and metal dual type deck around this line. I would include a 4-3-3 or 3-2-2 line of Axew, Fraxure, and Haxorus, and this Pokemon family would be the main Pokemon family used in the deck. I would make sure to use multiple Haxorus cards in the deck so you could stock up one Haxorus card on your bench with metal energy cards and have another Haxorus card ready so if the defending Pokemon is a Team Plasma Pokemon you can move it into the active Pokemon spot and use Strike of the Champion and knock it out. This Haxorus card is very fast and can do major damage, I would recommend putting up to four energy cards, all metal of course, on Haxorus so you can do 160 damage per turn with Dragonaxe and knock out most Pokemon in one move.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this an amazingly good stage 2 Pokemon card from the Plasma Blast set and a card you'll definitely want to consider building a deck around. This is the kind of stage 2 Pokemon card I really like, one that can easily knock out almost all Pokemon, and a card that is quick on the attack. Even though I'm giving this card a perfect rating, I wish the hp would be a little higher, but if you set this card up on the bench it shouldn't be too much of a problem. Overall, the entire line of Axew, Fraxure, and Haxorus from this set, get a 4 out of 5 rating from me. Even though I gave Axew and Fraxure 2 out of 5 ratings, since I would be using those cards with the Haxorus card, I think the overall rating should be much higher than a 2.
