Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pupitar from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card set. Pupitar is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Pupitar does not have an Ability and it only has one move. This one move is called Thrash and for one colorless energy card does 20 damage plus 20 more damage if you get a heads when flipping a coin, unfortunately 20 damage to Pupitar if you get a tails when flipping a coin.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Pupitar is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Larvitar into play, there are two Larvitar cards in this set and I've reviewed both the past two days, and then evolve Larvitar into Pupitar. Pupitar does have a Stage 2 evolution in Tyranitar, which I'll be reviewing in the next couple of weeks, since it is a darkness type card, that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Pupitar is the final evolution in this line. So if you read my reviews of the two Larvitar cards in this set, you'll know that I thought both cards were below average overall, but if I had to choose one to put in the active Pokemon spot it would be the first one, card number 40, since it can attack quickly and has an average HP. So knowing this about the two Larvitar cards in this set and looking at Pupitar, I cannot recommend using any of these Pokemon without potentially using Tyranitar. This Pupitar card has a low HP for a Stage 1, and a pretty horrible move, since it can do 20 damage to Pupitar when attacking, making its low HP seem that much lower. Of course, if you decide to play this card in your deck, it is a must to use the Trick Coin trainer with it, giving you two chances at getting a heads when flipping a coin. The good thing about this card is that it requires only one colorless energy card to attack, so that it can be used in any type deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set. This card has a low HP, and a potentially self inducing damage attack, that makes this card not usable in my opinion. Overall with the two Larvitar cards from this set, I would give this line a 1 out of 5 rating, it just isn't worth it to use any of these Pokemon in a deck without using Tyranitar.
