Delphox -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Delphox Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Delphox from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Delphox is a stage 2, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Delphox does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Flickering Flames, for one fire energy card this move does 40 damage, plus it puts the defending Pokemon to sleep.  Delphox's second move is called Psystorm and for three colorless energy cards this move does 20 damage times the number of energy attached to all Pokemon in play.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Delphox is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Fennekin into play and then evolve it into Braixen before you can evolve Braixen into Delphox, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last two days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought the first of the two Fennekin cards from this set was average overall and the one I would recommend since it had two moves and a solid HP, I also thought Braixen was average and other than having a lower HP, had two good moves and was quick on the attack.  So knowing this about the first two Pokemon in this line and looking at this Delphox card, the way you'll want to use this line is to set up everyone on the bench, then when several Pokemon are set up in play, move Delphox to the active Pokemon spot and use Psystorm.  The reason you'll want to keep this card on the bench is so that you can use Psystorm multiple times when in the active Pokemon spot and give your opponent time to put more energy cards in play.  If you go the route of putting Fennekin into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, Flickering Flames is a good move and will give you time to set up your benched Pokemon while the defending Pokemon is asleep.  Because all of the Pokemon in this line are quick attackers, you only need to use a 1-1-1 line of this Pokemon family.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a very good Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set.  Other than being a Stage 2 card, so it takes awhile to set up, this card has two good moves, and does more damage the more your opponent needs energy to attack.  Altogether, this Pokemon family is average overall and would make a solid addition to a fire type deck.
