Ponyta -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Ponyta Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Ponyta from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set.  Ponyta is a basic, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Ponyta does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that Ponyta has is called Agility, this move requires one fire energy card and does 10 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin, all effects of attacks including damage done to Ponyta during your opponent's next turn are prevented.  Ponyta's second move is called Flame Tail, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Ponyta is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Rapidash, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own this card could easily be a starter type Pokemon in your fire type deck.  I could easily see myself using 4 of these in a deck.  Using 4 of these cards in a deck I would have a great chance at starting the game with this Pokemon in the active Pokemon spot, I could then use Agility every turn to do damage and hopefully keep Ponyta in the active Pokemon spot for quite awhile to set up my benched Pokemon or I could use Flame Tail and try and knock out the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an excellent basic Pokemon card from the Flashfire set.  This card is definitely a great basic Pokemon card that should be in a majority of fire type decks out there.  There really isn't anything I dislike about this card, I like its hp, retreat cost, and both of its moves.  So you can't go wrong with using this card in your fire type deck.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Ponyta from the Flashfire set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Ponyta's stage 1 evolution Rapidash, which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
