Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Bronzong from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set. Bronzong is a stage 1, metal type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Bronzong's Ability is called Metal Fortress and says that all effects of your opponent's attacks, including damage, done to your Benched Pokemon are prevented. Besides the Ability, Bronzong has one move called Guard Press, for three energy cards, two colorless and one metal, this move does 60 damage, plus it reduces any damage done to Bronzong during its next turn by 20.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Bronzong is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Bronzor into play (I reviewed Bronzor from this set yesterday) and then evolve Bronzor into Bronzong. There is a Bronzong BREAK card in this set and I'll be reviewing it tomorrow. If you read yesterday's review of Bronzor, you'll know that I thought it was a below average Basic Pokemon card, it did have a solid HP and two moves, but it required two energy cards to do damage and to retreat, and the move it had for one energy card was coin flip based. So knowing this about Bronzor and looking at this Bronzong card, you'll want to at least have this card on your bench at all times to utilize its Ability and not let your opponent spread damage around by attacking your bench, so just on Bronzong's Ability alone, this is a must play for metal type decks and almost any type deck out there. Put a 1-1 line of these two Pokemon in your deck. So besides keeping this card on the bench most of the game, if you have to, Guard Press isn't a terrible move and only needs one metal energy card and then two of any type energy to attack, 60 damage for three energy cards is average damage overall.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is an above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set. Even if this card didn't have a move, I would still give it a 4 rating, that is how good I think this card's Ability is. It can definitely ruin your opponent's strategy if they have a spread attack type deck. Together with Bronzor from this set, I would give a 4 out of 5 rating, like I said above, if you're building a metal type deck, this card is a must.
