Bronzong -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Bronzong BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Bronzong from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  Bronzong is a stage 1, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Bronzong does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Pain Amplifier, for two colorless energy cards this move puts 3 damage counters on any of your opponent's Pokemon that have damage counters on them already.  Bronzong's second move is called Knock Away and for three energy cards, two colorless and one metal, this move does 70 damage plus 20 more damage if you get a heads when flipping a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Bronzong is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Bronzor into play (I reviewed Bronzor from this set yesterday) and then evolve Bronzor into Bronzong.  If you read yesterday's review of Bronzor, you'll know that I thought that card was a below average Basic Pokemon card,  It did have a good HP and the potential to do major damage for only two energy cards, but for the most part the card was slow on the attack and could do minimal damage, the only time it could do more than minimal damage was when the opponent only had one prize card left, meaning you were just about to lose the game.  So knowing this about Bronzor and looking at this Bronzong card, I would definitely use this line in a spread attack type deck, keeping the entire line on the bench until you've used a card in the active Pokemon spot that does at least 10 damage to all of your opponent's benched Pokemon.  That way, when you put Bronzong into the active Pokemon spot you can use Pain Amplifier and do massive damage to all of your opponent's Pokemon.  And, if you have to put this card into the active Pokemon spot without any damage on your opponent's Pokemon, Knock Away is still an above average move, it just requires metal type energy as opposed to all colorless with the first move on this card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is one of the better Stage 1 Pokemon cards in the BREAKthrough set and one that should be used in almost all spread attack decks out there.  Being able to do 30 damage to each of your opponent's Pokemon that has damage on them amounts to up to 180 damage per turn and can knock multiple Pokemon out very quickly.  So there is nothing to dislike about this card, it has a high HP, and two great moves.  Combined with Bronzor from this set, I am giving this line a 4 out of 5 rating.

If you count the Phantom Forces Pre-realese, there was 7.

If you don't count that, there was 6.

P.S: If you count Bronzong G, there was 8

Bronzong has been a Metal type in the English sets: Mysterious Treasures, Platinum: Arceus, Next Destinies, Phantom Forces, XY Black Star Promos, BREAKthrough and Platinum.
Total: 7 sets. If you included Psychic it would equal 12 sets but PTP has limited down to Metal types. Final answer: 7 sets in English.
