Entei 15/98 -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

Entei Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Entei from the Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second of two Entei cards I've reviewed from this set.  Entei is a basic, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 130, it has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  This Entei card has an Ancient Trait called Double and says that you may have two Tool cards attached to it and once.  Besides the Ancient Trait, this Entei card has two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Flame Screen, for two energy cards, one each of fire and colorless, this move does 30 damage, plus any damage done to Entei during your opponent's next turn is reduced by 30.  Entei's second move is called Heat Tackle and for four energy cards, two each of colorless and fire, this move does 130 damage, however Entei does 30 damage to itself if you get a tails when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Entei 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, since there are two different Entei cards in this set, I will be comparing the two later in this post.  Just looking at this Entei card, this card is much slower than yesterday's Entei but it can consistently do more damage every single turn, not relying on your opponent's benched Pokemon.  So if you want a lot of power in your deck, it may be worth it to use one of these Entei cards in your deck, set it up on the bench, and when you get four energy cards on it move it to the active Pokemon spot and do 130 damage a turn.  You'll want to make sure you have a couple of Potion cards in your deck to heal the damage Entei may end up doing to itself.  If I were to make a decision between these two Entei cards, I would recommend playing yesterday's card, it is quicker on the attack, and can do almost as much damage every single turn for half the amount of energy, this card is just too slow for my liking.

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 Ancient Origins set.  This card has a very good HP, and two decent moves.  It isn't as good as yesterday's Entei card but it can still be a solid contributor to a fire type deck if you're a little patient and give it time to be set up on the bench.
