Blaziken -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Blaziken Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Blaziken from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set.  Blaziken is a stage 2, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Blaziken does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Clutch, for two colorless energy cards this move does 50 damage, plus it makes your opponent's active Pokemon unable to retreat during their next turn.  Blaziken's second move is called Burning Shot, this move requires four energy cards, two each of fire and colorless, and does 150 damage to one of your opponent's benched Pokemon, however you must discard 2 energy cards attached to Blaziken after using this move.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Blaziken is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Torchic into play and then evolve it into Combusken before you can evolve Combusken into Blaziken, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both cards individually were average but because both were based on coin flips to do above average damage I recommended to either use Torchic on its own as a starter type Pokemon, or wait and use the entire family together, so from Torchic up to Blaziken.  So if you want to use this entire family in a deck, make sure it is a fire type deck and use a 2-1-1 line of Torchic, Combusken, and Blaziken.  Like I mentioned, Torchic will be a decent starter type Pokemon so that is why I would use 2 of them.  As far as Blaziken is concerned, I would either get Blaziken into the active Pokemon spot very early in the game and use Clutch many times or I would leave Blaziken on the bench and get at least 4 energy cards, possibly 6 total on it, then when it was put in the active Pokemon spot I would use Burning Shot two turns in a row and knock out two of my opponent's Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a very good Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set.  This card is nice in that it provides two different strategies you can implement with Blaziken making it a more exciting card in your deck.  Plus the low retreat cost is nice later in the game you can retreat it for a low cost instead of having it knocked out.  But even though Blaziken is an above average card to me, altogether, I can only give this Pokemon family a 3 out of 5 rating, I say this because the first two Pokemon in this line, which both received 3 ratings from me, are just too risky to use all of the time.  So if you're looking for a solid fire type Pokemon family, this one is definitely worth the consideration.
