Reshiram -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Reshiram Roaring Skies Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Reshiram from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Set.  Reshiram is a basic, dragon type Pokemon card with an hp of 130, it has a x2 weakness to fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Reshiram's Ability is called Turboblaze and says that once per turn if Reshiram is your active Pokemon you may attach a fire energy card to one of your dragon type Pokemon.  Besides the Ability, Reshiram just has one move called Bright Wing, this move requires four energy cards to use, two fire, and one each of colorless and lightning, this move then does 110 damage, however you must discard a fire energy card attached to Reshiram after using Bright Wing.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Reshiram 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, the only reason I would use this card in a deck is number one if I had a deck with several dragon type Pokemon in it and number two those dragon type Pokemon required fire energy to attack, that way I could just put Reshiram into the active Pokemon spot for a few turns, and not even attack, just use its Ability to set up the rest of the bench.  If you have plenty of energy to spare, you could put four energy cards on this card and attack with Bright Wing, but because you have to discard an energy each turn this card will really eat up energy cards.  So me personally, I would not recommend using this card in a deck, but it does have some potential and can help in a dragon type deck.

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 Roaring Skies set.  I am not the biggest of fan on this card, but it does have a well above average HP, a good Ability, and a powerful move, albeit slow.  So like I said in the strategy section of this post, if you are building a dragon type deck where the cards need fire energy to attack, this card is worth a serious look, otherwise I would pass on it.
