Noivern -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Noivern Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Noivern from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set.  Noivern is a stage 1, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100.  It has a x2 weakness to fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Noivern's Ability is called Echolocation and says that if any damage is done to Noivern, flip a coin first, if heads all of that damage is prevented.  Besides the Ability, Noivern has only one move which is called Boomburst.  This move requires three energy cards to use, one each of psychic, darkness, and colorless, and does 30 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Noivern is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Noibat into play and then evolve Noibat into Noivern.  I actually have not reviewed Noivern from this set yet because it is a colorless type card, so in this section I will just assume Noibat is an average card and that you are basically going to have to use that card in order to use Noivern.  So looking at this Noivern card, this card would fit perfectly in a spread damage type deck.  You could set this card up on the bench, get three energy cards on it, then use Boomburst while in the active Pokemon spot to potentially knock out multiple Pokemon of your opponent's at a time.  You could also use this late in games because of its Ability because you get a 50/50 shot of preventing all damage done to Noivern making its 100 HP seem that much higher.  So I would definitely recommend using this card in a deck, both if you're building a spread damage type deck and if you're building a dual type deck or psychic and darkness.  I would recommend using a 2-2 line of these Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set.  There isn't anything like I really dislike about this card.  This card has an above average HP, low retreat cost, a very good Ability, and a devastating move if you include this card in a spread damage type deck.  So this card is basically a must have and a must use for a spread damage type deck, and is still a great card for just a normal darkness and psychic type deck.
