Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lopunny from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set. Lopunny is a stage 1, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Lopunny's Ability is called Big Jump and says that once during your turn you may return this card and all cards attached to it to your hand. Besides the Ability, Lopunny only has one move called Sitdown Bounce, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 80 damage, however if you get a tails when flipping a coin, Lopunny cannot attack during its next turn.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lopunny is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Buneary into play (I reviewed Buneary from this set yesterday) and then evolve Buneary into Lopunny. If you read yesterday's review of Buneary, you'll know that I thought that card was a pretty poor card because it only had the one move on it, that did below average damage for the amount of energy it required, and when you used the move once you had to retreat Buneary back to your bench. So knowing this about Buneary and looking at this Lopunny card, I cannot recommend using these two cards together in a deck. I say this because Lopunny is about the same as Buneary just a Stage 1 evolution, it has a way below average move if you flip a tails when using Sitdown Bounce and you can get Lopunny out of the active Pokemon spot whenever you'd like using its Ability. Lopunny is definitely better than Buneary, but I wouldn't risk using Buneary just to use Lopunny. If you do want to use this line in your deck because they can fit into any type deck, I wouldn't use more than one each, you could definitely use Buneary right away then when you attack you'll have to switch it out, on the bench then evolve Buneary into Lopunny, get three energy cards on it, use Sitdown Bounce a couple of times then return everything to your hand.
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 from the Flashfire set. This card is definitely better than Buneary but it is still a poor Pokemon card overall. If you flip a tails when using Sitdown Bounce, that move really only does 40 damage a turn which is terrible, and since Buneary is so bad, I wouldn't want to do only 40 damage a turn after playing with Buneary for awhile. So overall, I cannot give this line better than a 1 out of 5 rating, I would highly recommend not using this line in play.
