Luxray BREAK -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Luxray BREAK BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Luxray BREAK from the BREAKpoint 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 Luxray, so basically this card is a Stage 3 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.  Luxray BREAK is a BREAK (essentially a Stage 3), lightning type Pokemon card, with an hp of 170.  It has the same weakness, resistance and retreat cost as the Luxray you're evolving it from.  Luxray's one move is called Wild Fury and for four energy cards, two each of lightning and colorless, this move does 130 damage plus 40 more damage for each heads you get when you flip a coin until you get a tails.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Luxray BREAK is a stage 3 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Shinx into play and then evolve it into Luxio, and then into Luxray before you can evolve Luxray into the BREAK version, all three of those Pokemon have cards in this set and I've reviewed all of those cards in the past several days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both Shinx and Luxio were average, both having quick attacking moves that could do a fair amount of damage, and then I thought Luxray was a great Stage 2 card from this set, having two very powerful moves, a low retreat cost, and a solid HP.  So of course, if you want to use Luxray BREAK in a deck, I would highly recommend using it with the line from this set, Luxray from this set can do up to 100 damage a turn for three energy cards, add Luxray BREAK to that card and it increases its HP by 40, and increases the amount of damage it can do by at least 30, by just attaching another energy card to Luxray BREAK.  So just like I said yesterday, I would definitely consider building a deck around this Pokemon family, and using at least 1 or 2 Luxray BREAK cards in the deck, plus a Trick Coin trainer, giving you a much better chance of at least doing 170 damage a turn with Wild Fury.  So even though this line is slow to set up, since Luxray BREAK is a Stage 3, it is worth it in the end since this card can do so much damage, and all of the cards leading up to this card are solid as well.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a very good BREAK Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint set.  Although I would have liked to see this card have an Ability over another move, if used with Luxray from this set, this card has just another powerful move to use when attacking and is a card I wouldn't be afraid of building a deck around.  Altogether, I would give this line a 4 out of 5 rating, it is a good one, quick attacking, and powerful.
