Noivern BREAK -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Noivern BREAK BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Noivern 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 Noivern, 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.  Noivern BREAK is a BREAK (essentially a Stage 2), dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130.  It has the same weakness, resistance and retreat cost as the Noivern you're evolving it from.  Noivern BREAK does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Synchro Woofer that for three energy cards, one each of psychic, darkness, and colorless, does 70 damage plus 80 more damage if you have the same number of cards in your hand as your opponent.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Noivern BREAK is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Noibat into play and evolve it into Noivern before you can evolve Noivern into Noivern BREAK.  I will be reviewing the two Noibat cards from this set in the next week or two, but I have reviewed the Noivern card from this set and thought it was average overall, but would be above average in a darkness and psychic type deck since it could do 120 damage a turn for three energy cards.  So knowing this about Noivern and looking at this BREAK card, potentially, this card works very well with the Noivern with this set.  You could choose to use Noivern's Tuning move to get the same amount of cards in your hand as your opponent, then the next turn try and do 150 damage with Synchro Woofer since you should have close to the same amount of cards as your opponent from Tuning, then play the cards you need to match your opponent's hand count.  If you would rather just do 120 damage a turn for three energy cards, but have to discard an energy card each turn, just stick with Noivern and don't use Noivern BREAK.  I personally would use that strategy, since Noivern BREAK is just adding bloat to your deck, and it takes longer to get set up.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average BREAK Pokemon card from the BREAKthrough set.  I like how this card works well with Noivern from this set, but to me, this card isn't a must use in a psychic and darkness type deck, it won't hurt a deck, but there are better cards than this one out there to use.  So without knowing about the two Noibat cards from this set, I would give Noivern and Noivern BREAK a 3 out of 5 rating.
