Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Vibrava from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card set. Vibrava is a stage 1, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Vibrava does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Charge Energy and for one colorless energy card this move allows you to search your deck for two energy cards and put them into your hand. Vibrava's second move is called Vibration and for two energy cards one each of grass and fighting, does 30 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Vibrava is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Trapinch into play (I reviewed Trapinch a few weeks back because it was a fighting type Pokemon) and then evolve Trapinch into Vibrava. Vibrava does have a stage 2 evolution in Flygon that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Vibrava is the final evolution in this line. So if you read my review of Trapinch from this set you'll know that I thought that card was average to below average and could be used on its own in a deck, but was a little slow on the attack so it would be best to be kept on the bench if using it with its evolutions. So when looking at this Vibrava card, the first thing you'll want to note is that you'll probably want to use this card in a dual type deck of grass and fighting Pokemon. This card can be used in a deck without Flygon but I would only recommend using a 1-1 line of Trapinch and Vibrava. I would try and set up Vibrava on the bench getting two energy cards on it before moving it to the active Pokemon spot. The earlier in the game you use Vibrava the better since it only has 80 HP and can only do 30 damage a turn, but with a low retreat cost, and low attack costs, this card is a fairly average and solid card to use in a deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set. I like that this card has two moves, both requiring little energy cards. Plus this card has a low retreat cost which makes up for its low HP. Even though I gave both Trapinch and Vibrava 3 out of 5 ratings individually, I am going to give these two cards combined a 2 out of 5 rating, they can be used in a deck, but they definitely won't be game changing.
