Zoroark BREAK -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Zoroark BREAK from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  The way a BREAK card works is that you place it on top of the Pokemon with the exact name, so this card would be placed on top of Zoroark, so basically this card is a Stage 2 card.  It is placed horizontally on the card it evolves from and can use that Pokemon's Abilities and Attacks as well as what is on the BREAK card.  Zoroark BREAK is a BREAK (essentially a Stage 2), darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has the same weakness, resistance and retreat cost as the Zoroark you're evolving it from.  Zoroark BREAK does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Foul Play, that for one darkness energy card allows you to choose one of your opponent's active Pokemon's attacks and use it against them.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Zoroark BREAK is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Zorua into play and evolve it into Zoroark before you can evolve Zoroark into Zoroark BREAK.  I have reviewed both Zorua and the Zoroark cards from this set the past few days on my blog.  If you've read those reviews you'll know that I thought both Zorua cards were below average, both had two moves, but required continuous energy cards to be added to them to attack, however I did think Zoroark was an above average Stage 1 card, one that could do major damage when the opponent's bench was full.  So knowing this about the first two Pokemon in this line and knowing how BREAK cards work, this card works very well with the Zoroark card in this set.  Again, you'll want to set this entire line up on the bench, then when your opponent's bench is full you want to move Zoroark into the active Pokemon spot, using its Ability, then use Mind Jack while it does major damage, then either retreat Zoroark BREAK or use one of your opponent's active Pokemon's moves against it by using this BREAK card's only move.  I like how the addition of the BREAK card gives Zoroark more options on how to attack and a higher HP.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average BREAK Pokemon card from the BREAKthrough set.  This card works very well with the Zoroark card from this set, and makes this line be able to do a limitless amount of damage for only one energy card when using Foul Play on this card, and up to 160 damage per turn when using Mind Jack, so if you're building a darkness type deck and need some power, definitely consider this line in your deck.  Altogether, I would give this entire line, Zorua, Zoroark, and Zoroark BREAK, a 4 out of 5 rating.

True. Based on your youtube video titled 'My BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Collection' uploaded on 30th November 2015, at the 2:13 to 2:16 minutes mark, you mentioned Zoroark BREAK is probably the best in the tcg right now, so i guess Zoroark BREAK is your favorite BREAK card in the BREAKthrough set.
