Kyogre -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Kyogre Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Kyogre from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Kyogre is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 130, it has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Kyogre does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Spring Tides, for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, this move does 30 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip a coin until you get a tails.  Kyogre's second move is called Ocean Cyclone, this move requires four energy cards to use, three water and one colorless, and does 80 damage, plus it does 10 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Kyogre is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, if you're building a spread damage type deck, I would make sure and use this card in your deck.  I would only put one of these in a deck though since they are so slow on the attack and require a huge amount of energy to retreat.  I would set this card up on the bench, get four energy cards on it, then put it into the active Pokemon spot and use Ocean Cyclone every turn.  I am not a fan of coin flip based moves, and I am definitely not a fan of one that may end up doing zero damage every turn, so I would never use Kyogre for this move.  So again, this card is acceptable to use in a spread damage type deck, but don't use more than one of these cards since it takes a long time to attack.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  This card has a very high HP, and a powerful move in Ocean Cyclone, since it not only does major damage to the defending Pokemon but 10 damage to all of your opponent's benched Pokemon.  Other than the HP and one move, this card isn't all that great, that is why I am only giving this card an average rating and suggesting using a maximum of one of these in a spread damage type deck.

PTP to fully understand the cards you have to play the TCG. Some of your reviews I've read are quite inaccurate.

Nick Hensing said...

For example 130HP is standard for a basic legendary non-EX and 90 DMG a turn is actually below average in most circumstances unless its an attack for 1-2 energy or if it has GREAT side effects like Seismatoad EX's first attack
