Rapidash -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Rapidash Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rapidash from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set.  Rapidash is a stage 1, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a free retreat cost.  Rapidash does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Agility, this move requires one fire energy card and does 20 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin, all effects of an attack, including damage, are prevented when your opponent attacks Rapidash during their next turn.  Rapidash's second move is called Overrun, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 40 damage, plus 20 damage to one of your opponent's benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Rapidash is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Ponyta into play (I reviewed Ponyta from this set yesterday) and then evolve Ponyta into Rapidash.  If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought very highly of the Ponyta card from this set and I would highly recommend using it in a fire type deck even without this Rapidash card. But after giving an overview of the Rapidash card, I can highly recommend both of the Pokemon in this family.  If I were building a fire type deck or a deck that did spread damage, like the Meowstic theme deck, I would definitely include this family.  I would include a 4-2 line of Ponyta and Rapidash.  I would try and get Ponyta into the active Pokemon spot right away then evolve it into Rapidash.  Once Rapidash has attacked for awhile with Overrun or allowed you to set up your benched Pokemon, retreat Rapidash for free and put in your benched Pokemon.

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 gave Ponyta a 5 out of 5 rating as a basic Pokemon card and as a stage 1 card, this card is even better plus it has a free retreat cost.  So I would highly recommend both Ponyta and Rapidash to anyone trying to build there own deck.  You definitely can't go wrong by using this family in your deck.
