Flygon -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Flygon Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Flygon from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set.  Flygon is a stage 2, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130.  It has a x2 weakness to fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Flygon does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Rainbow Shower.  This move requires one colorless energy card and allows you to attach as many energy cards as you'd like from your hand to your Pokemon in any way that you'd like.  Flygon's second move is called Sand Sweep, this move requires three energy cards, one each of grass, fighting, and colorless, and does 70 damage, plus it heals 30 damage from each of your Pokemon that has at least one energy card on them.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Flygon is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Trapinch into play and then evolve it into Vibrava before you can evolve Vibrava into Flygon, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them in the past.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both cards were average individually but together were a little below average because neither card had that great of moves or high HP.  So knowing this about the first two Pokemon in this line and looking at this Flygon card, I would still want to use Flygon in a deck, especially if I am building a dual grass and fighting type deck.  I wouldn't include too many of each Pokemon in this line, probably a 1-1-1 line, and then I would include trainer cards to get a ton of energy cards into my hand, I would then spend time to get Flygon on the bench, then move it to the active Pokemon spot and use Rainbow Shower right away to get all of my Pokemon set up at the same time, then after that I would use Sand Sweep most turns.  I would also try and include many other Pokemon that have lower retreat costs in my deck, so I can move my Pokemon in and out of the active Pokemon spot with ease and heal them with Flygon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an excellent Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set, not only one that is pretty powerful attack wise, but a card that will greatly increase the effectiveness of your whole deck.  I really like Rainbow Shower, allowing you to move a bunch of energy cards from your hand to your Pokemon at once, and then Sand Sweep not only does above average damage but it heals damage from all of your Pokemon with energy on them.  So I would highly recommend this Pokemon card and line for those building a grass and fighting type deck, altogether I would give this Pokemon family a 4 out of 5 rating, individually Trapinch and Vibrava were 3 out of 5 cards, and Flygon was a 5.
