Yanmega -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Yanmega Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Yanmega from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Yanmega is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a free retreat cost.  Yanmega does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Windfall, this move allows you to shuffle your hand into your deck and draw 6 new cards, for one grass energy card.  Yanmega's second move is called Surprise Strike and for three colorless energy cards does 50 damage plus if you just moved Yanmega into the active Pokemon spot, the move does 50 more damage for a total of 100.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Yanmega is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Yanma into play (I reviewed Yanma from this set yesterday) and then evolve Yanma into Yanmega.  If you read yesterday's review of Yanma, you'll know that I thought that card was a below average Basic Pokemon card, I actually thought the card was pretty solid over all, with an above average HP, and a good move doing 30 damage, but you would need to attach an energy card to it each turn to be able to attack each turn which made me give it a lower rating.  So knowing this about Yanma and looking at this Yanmega card, I would highly recommend using this Pokemon line a deck that included many other Pokemon that had free retreat costs.  That way, you could set up Yanma, evolve it into Yanmega on the bench, then put three energy cards on it, then every couple of turns, switch it into the active Pokemon spot and use Surprise Strike one turn, do 100 damage, then retreat it for free.

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 Phantom Forces set.  I really like this card in a deck that includes many low or free retreat cost Pokemon, and being able to do 100 damage every turn for only three energy cards of any type is really amazing.  So if you're just starting to build a deck, I would highly recommend trying to work this line into your new deck.  Overall, I would give the line of Yanma and Yanmega from the Phantom Forces set a 3 out of 5 rating, Yanma was a 2 and Yanmega was a 4.
