Jynx -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Jynx Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Jynx from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set.  Jynx is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 70, it has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Jynx's Ability is called Victory Kiss, it allows you to heal 10 damage from your active Pokemon if Jynx is on your bench.  Besides the Ability, Jynx just has one move called Hug, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, and does 30 damage, plus it makes your opponent's active Pokemon unable to retreat during their next turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Jynx is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, the only reason I would use this card is for its Ability, so this card potentially could be used in any type deck.  I would get it onto the bench as early as possible, and use it to reduce the damage from your active Pokemon the entire game.  Ideally, you would not want to put this card into the active Pokemon spot because Hug does well below the average damage amount for three energy cards.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set.  Even though I am giving this card a 2 rating, I would still consider using it in a deck because of its Ability, but like I mentioned above, I would definitely not try and use this card for its move.  So if you're looking for a way to heal damage from your Pokemon without using Potion trainer cards, this card is definitely a way to do that.

No correct answers so far, it was an older box for sure.

Ocean Abyss said...

I've re-watched a lot of booster box openings just for this question, and I did not find the answer :(

must be something like Aquapolis or Expedition I suppose, but I have not found a video with a lot of Jynx :/

Aquapolis is my answer I guess

Ik base set had a lot of jinxes, but they weren't rares. same with base 2.
Now a promising set is legendary collection. As one of the only sets containing jynx as a rare, and being quite old, it meets the standards. Though it was a reprint of the old jynx, which was an uncommon card, so Im not sure it should count. Moving on. Aquapolis featured a new jynx that was rare, but it was uncommon in the japanese set. This means it could have been drawed more often, if they accedently forgot to carry it over. Def a possiblity, but I dont think they would change the rarity for no reason. Jynx comes back in EX Unseen forces, as a rare. Ex Unseen forces seems like something you would open because of the chance to get the three legendary dogs as star pokemon. So my guess is EX Unseen Forces.

I knew it was an older box! I think it was EX Dragon Frontiers. You might have been trying to pull that Charizard star. =)
