Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Solrock from the Pokemon XY Card Set. Solrock is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy retreat cost. Solrock does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Cosmic Spin, this move requires one colorless energy card and does 10 damage, plus if you have a Lunatone on your bench it does 30 more damage. Solrock's second move is called Solar Beam, this move requires three energy cards, two fighting and one colorless, and does 60 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Solrock is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Lunatone into play (I reviewed Lunatone from this set yesterday) and then evolve Lunatone into Solrock. If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Lunatone was an average to slightly above average basic Pokemon card, it had a good hp and two moves. Because of this, Lunatone could easily be used on its own, so if you want to use this Pokemon line in your deck, I would suggest using a 2-2 line. That way, you can get one Lunatone evolved right away, move that card to the active Pokemon spot and have another Lunatone on the bench so Solrock's Cosmic Spin attack can do 40 damage per turn. If you have the necessary energy, Solar Beam is a good move to use, it is average overall but 60 damage is quite a bit from a stage 1 card.
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 from the X and Y set. There really is nothing to complain about with this card, it is just average overall. I would definitely recommend using this card in a deck and I especially like the kicker Cosmic Spin has on it. So overall, I would give the Pokemon family of Lunatone and Solrock a 4 out of 5 rating, individually each was a 3, but together they are above average.
