Pyroar -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Pyroar Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pyroar from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set.  Pyroar is a stage 1, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Pyroar's Ability is called Intimidating Mane, this Ability prevents all damage done to Pyroar from your opponent's Basic Pokemon.  Besides the Ability, Pyroar just has one move called Storching Fang, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one fire, and does 60 damage, but when using this move, if you discard a fire type card, this move does 80 damage instead of 60.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Pyroar is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Litleo into play (I reviewed both Litleo cards from this set the past two days) and then evolve Litleo into Pyroar.  If you read the two Litleo cards that I reviewed, you'll know that I liked the second Litleo card in this set better because it could attack quicker, however, if you don't plan on using Litleo as a starter type Pokemon, the first Litleo card in the set can do more damage and has a higher hp.  No matter the Litleo you use, you'll definitely want to use this Pyroar card in every deck you have fire energy cards in.  I say this because Pyroar's Ability is extremely good, and if you get this card into the active Pokemon spot early in the game, your opponent won't be able to do anything, you can keep knocking out basic Pokemon with Storching Fang while making the basic Pokemon unable to do any damage against you with Pyroar's Ability.  I would probably use a 2-2 line of Litleo and Pyroar in my deck, I would use one of each Litleo cards in this set.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a very good stage 1 Pokemon card from the Flashfire set. I am giving this card a 5 out of 5 rating on the its Ability alone, throw in the pretty good move it has in Storching Fang, and this card is definitely the best stage 1 Pokemon card from the Flashfire set.  So if you're building a fire type deck, this Pokemon family should definitely be in your deck, used together, I would give Litleo and Pyroar a 4 out of 5 rating.
