Zekrom -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Zekrom Roaring Skies Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Zekrom from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Set.  Zekrom 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.  Zekrom does not have an Ancient Trait or an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Energy Stream, for one lightning energy card this move does 30 damage, plus you can attach an energy card from your discard pile to Zekrom.  Zekrom's second move is called Electric Ball, this move requires four energy cards to use, two lightning, and one each of fire and colorless.  This move does 100 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Zekrom 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 lightning and fire type deck, this card is a must have for that deck.  You could use it as a starter type Pokemon in that deck, potentially using up to four of these in your deck, that way you have a much better chance of getting this card in the active Pokemon spot to start the game, you can then do 30 damage per turn and knock out most Basic Pokemon that evolve in two turns.  If you place Zekrom into the active Pokemon spot later in the game and it isn't set up yet, you can use Energy Stream a couple of times and quickly get four energy cards on Zekrom so you can use Electric Ball and do 100 damage a turn.  If you use this Zekrom card with the dragon type Rayquaza EX and Mega Rayquaza EX in a deck, it will be very powerful.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a top notch Basic Pokemon card from the Roaring Skies set.  This card has a well above average HP, fairly low retreat cost, and two amazing moves.  The first move that Zekrom has does good damage for only one energy card and the second move it has is a little slower, but does major damage every turn.  So like I said above, if you're building a fire and lightning type deck, make sure to use this card in your deck.
