Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Omastar from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set. Omastar is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Omastar's Ability is called Restoring Beam and says that once per turn, you may search your deck for a Restored Pokemon and put it onto your bench. Besides the Ability, Omastar just has one move called Spinning Attack, for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, this move does 60 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Omastar is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Omanyte into play (I reviewed Omanyte from this set yesterday) and then evolve Omanyte into Omastar. If you read yesterday's review of Omanyte, you'll know that I thought it was average overall, if it was a Basic Pokemon it would be really good, but since it is a restored Pokemon and only able to be played if you use it with the Helix Fossil Omanyte trainer, it is a little harder to get into play, thus making it more similar to a Stage 1 card. So knowing this about Omanyte and looking at this Omastar card, to be the most efficient playing this line, you should use a 2-2 line of this Pokemon family, you can then get one Omanyte into play the original way, and then use Restoring Beam on Omastar to get the other Omanyte into play. Once you get both Omanyte in play, evolve both and do 60 damage a turn with Spinning Attack.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is a solid Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set. Just like Omanyte from this set, this card is pretty good, but because it starts as a Restored Pokemon, this card is a little slower than a Stage 1 to get into play, thus reducing its appeal a little. But with this card, you're getting a high HP, quick and powerful attacker, that will do well in water type decks. Overall I would give this line a 3 out of 5 rating, the same rating I gave each card individually.
