Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Ninetales from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set. Ninetales is a stage 1, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Ninetales' Ability is called Barrier Shrine and says that neither player can play any Stadium cards from their hand. Besides the Ability, Ninetales just has one move called Flickering Flames, this move requires three energy cards to use, two fire and one colorless, and does 70 damage plus puts the defending Pokemon to sleep.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Ninetales is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Vulpix into play (I reviewed Vulpix from this set yesterday) and then evolve Vulpix into Ninetales. If you read yesterday's review of Vulpix, you'll know that I thought that card was a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card that I still gave a 3 rating. I had really nothing to complain about, but it was just limited in what it could do, having two moves, neither requiring more than an energy card to use but neither move doing more than 10 damage. So knowing this about Vulpix and looking at this Ninetales card, I would recommend using a 1-1 line of these two cards if you're building a fire type deck. You could either try and use Vulpix as a starter type Pokemon doing 10 damage a turn right away, or you could set up this entire line on the bench, utilizing Ninetales' Ability while on the bench, then once you get three energy cards on Ninetales using Flickering Flames every turn, which is a very good move.
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 Primal Clash set. Even though I am giving this card an average rating, I am a big fan of Ninetales only move since it not only does above average damage but it also put the defending Pokemon to sleep. You can't go wrong by using this move multiple times during the game. So together with Vulpix from this set, I would give these two cards a combined rating of 3 out of 5, the same rating I gave both cards individually.
