Lucario 47/124 -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Lucario Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lucario from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two Lucario cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Lucario is a Stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Lucario does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Beatdown, for one fighting energy card this move does 40 damage.  Lucario's second move is called Magnum Kick, for three energy cards, two colorless and one fighting, this move does 70 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lucario is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Riolu into play, there are actually two Riolo cards in this set which I've reviewed the past two days, and evolve Riolu into Lucario.  Additionally, there are two Lucario cards in this set, this fighting type and a metal type one that I will be reviewing in a few weeks.  If you read my reviews of Riolu from this set you'll know that I thought both cards were average overall, one card had a higher HP but could only do up to 20 damage per turn and the other had an average HP and could do up to 30 damage a turn, both cards had moves based on coin flips, but both could be used on their own.  So knowing this about the two Riolu cards from this set and looking at this Lucario, this card fits well with either of the two Riolu cards, this card is somewhat quick on the attack and both moves it has can do above average damage.  So, if I were building a fighting type deck, I could see using a 1-1 line of this Pokemon family and starting the game with Riolu and evolving it into Lucario as soon as possible then using Beatdown or Magnum Kick, depending on how many energy cards you have on it.  I also like that Lucario has a low retreat cost which will allow you to easily retreat it if you start the game with it.

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.  There really isn't much for strategy with this card, it is a straight attacker, but I would recommend it for a fighting type deck.  Together with either Riolu from this set, I would give the line a 4 out of 5 rating.
