Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Mienshao from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set. Mienshao is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Mienshao does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Aero Turn, for one fighting energy card this move does 40 damage, however after using this move you must return Mienshao and all cards attached to it back into your hand. Mienshao's second move is called High Jump Kick, this move does 40 damage for two colorless energy cards.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Mienshao is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Mienfoo into play (I reviewed Mienfoo from this set yesterday) and then evolve Mienfoo into Mienshao. If you read yesterday's review of Mienshao, you'll know that I thought that card was an average to slightly below average Basic Pokemon card, but I still wouldn't use the card in a deck on its own since it could do 30 damage a turn but relied on a coin flip. So knowing this about Mienfoo and looking at this Mienshao card, if you just need two Pokemon cards into your fighting type deck, this line wouldn't be a bad choice, you could use a 1-1 line of Mienfoo and Mienshao and try and get Mienshao into the active Pokemon quickly and be able to do 40 damage a turn, then when it is close to getting knocked out switch from using High Jump Kick to Aero Turn and return this card to your hand. If you aren't just looking for 2 cards to use, I would look elsewhere for a fighting type Pokemon line to use.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an average to slightly below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set. This card really doesn't have any negatives about it, but it doesn't have anything great about it either. The card has an average HP, low retreat cost, and two pretty average moves. Even though I gave both Mienfoo and Mienshao 3 out of 5 ratings, together I would only give them a 2 rating and would probably avoid this line when building a deck.
