Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Kirlia from the Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card Set. Kirlia is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Kirlia does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Mind Bend, for two energy cards, one each of psychic and colorless, this move does 20 damage, plus confuses the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin. Kirlia's second move is called Spinning Attack, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, and does 40 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Kirlia is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Ralts into play (I reviewed Ralts from this set yesterday) and then evolve Ralts into Kirlia. Kirlia does have a stage 2 evolution in Gardevoir which is in the Radiant Collection subset, but because I haven't reviewed that card yet I will act as though Kirlia is the final evolution in this family. So if Kirlia is the final evolution in this line, I would stay away from both Ralts and Kirlia from this set. I say this because Kirlia has a low hp, and only one decent move, so I wouldn't put it in a psychic type deck. If you choose to use this card in a deck, I wouldn't use more than a 1-1 line of Ralts and Kirlia, I would try to evolve Ralts into Kirlia on the bench then use Spinning Attack every turn.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a below average stage 1 Pokemon card. Other than the low retreat cost and average move in Mind Bend, this card is not worthy at all of being used a in a deck, it has too low of hp, and Spinning Attack is an extremely disappointing move because it requires three energy cards and does way below average damage. So looking at Ralts and Kirlia from the Legendary Treasures set together, I would give them a 1 out of 5 rating, each individually received 2 ratings from me, but together are not good at all, so stay away from this line.
