Flareon -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

Flareon Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Flareon from the Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Set.  Flareon 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.  Flareon's Ability is called Flare Effect and says that each of your Stage 1 Pokemon in play is now a fire type Pokemon in addition to their existing type.  Besides the Ability, Flareon has one move called Heat Breath, this move requires three energy cards to use, two colorless and one fire, and does 60 damage plus 20 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Flareon is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Eevee into play and then evolve Eevee into Flareon.  I actually have not reviewed Eevee from this set yet because it is a colorless type card, so in this section I will just assume Eevee is an average card and that you are basically going to have to use that card in order to use Flareon.  So looking at this Flareon card, the main thing you'll use this Flareon for is its Ability.  And in the metagame, if there are a lot of Pokemon weak to fire type Pokemon, this card is a must have in your deck, regardless of the type, you can just keep this card on the bench and utilize its Ability, making all of your Stage 1 Pokemon in play fire type, and therefore doing x2 damage to all of your opponent's Pokemon that are weak to fire type Pokemon.  The other two Eevee evolution cards in this set have similar abilities and it would make sense to have one of each in a deck to really do massive damage to your opponents.  The one move this card does have does above average damage and therefore Flareon could be used in the active Pokemon spot, but again, this card is mainly for its Ability.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an awesome Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Ancient Origins set.  You can't beat the Ability on this card and it will make your already strong Stage 1 attackers even stronger.  So you can't go wrong with using this card in your deck, it is highly recommended.
