Virizion -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

Virizion Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Virizion from the Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Set.  Virizion is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 110, it has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Virizion does not have an Ancient Trait or an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Bail Out, this move requires one grass energy card to use and allows you to move 2 Pokemon from your discard pile into your hand.  Virizion's second move is called Prize Count, for two grass energy cards this move does 40 damage plus 80 more damage if you have more prize cards left than your opponent.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Virizion 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, this card compliments the Vespiquen card I reviewed two days ago perfectly.  That Vespiquen card did more damage with the more Pokemon you had in your discard pile, so you needed a way to get those Pokemon to your discard pile and then if you ever wanted a way to get those Pokemon back or Vespiquen was knocked out and it is no longer advantageous to have so many Pokemon in your discard pile, all you have to do is move Virizion into your active Pokemon spot and use Bail Out a turn or two.  Plus, if Vespiquen didn't work as well as you'd like and you're losing the game, you can then use Prize Count and do 120 damage a turn for only two energy cards.  So if you're building a deck based around Vespiquen, definitely use at least one of these Virizion cards in your deck, if you aren't using Vespiquen in a deck, temper your expectations with this card because Bail Out won't be as useful.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an extremely good Basic Pokemon card from the Ancient Origins set.  One that is good on its own, if you're losing the game, or paired perfectly with Vespiquen from this set.  So I would not have any worries about including this card in your grass type deck.
