Lugia BREAK -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Lugia BREAK Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lugia BREAK from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  The way a BREAK card works is that you place it on top of the Pokemon with the exact name, so this card would be placed on top of Lugia, so basically this card is a Stage 1 card.  It is placed horizontally on the card it evolves from and can use that Pokemon's Abilities and Attacks as well as what is on the BREAK card.  Lugia BREAK is a BREAK (essentially a Stage 1), colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 150.  It has the same weakness, resistance and retreat cost as the Lugia you're evolving it from.  Lugia BREAK does not have an Ability and only has one move.  The only move that this card has is Flash of Destruction, for four colorless energy cards this move does 150 damage, however after using this move you must discard an energy card attached to Lugia BREAK.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lugia BREAK is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Lugia into play.  I did review Lugia from this set yesterday and thought that it was average overall, it had an Ability that would reduce damage to your Pokemon when Lugia was in the active Pokemon spot and against EX Pokemon it could do up to 120 damage a turn.  So overall, that card could be used on its own.  After summarizing Lugia BREAK in the above section, the advantage to using this card with Lugia is to increase its HP and to do 90 more damage to non EX Pokemon than what Lugia can do on its own.  Ideally, I would still just keep this line on the bench and wait for an EX card to be in the active Pokemon spot to do 120 damage a turn, but if you want to do more damage without facing EX cards, use a 1-1 line of Lugia and Lugia BREAK, set it up on your bench and be prepared to keep attaching energy cards to Lugia BREAK every turn after doing 150 damage a turn with Flash of Descruction.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average BREAK Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set.  I like that this card has a solid HP and a powerful move, but it is slow on the attack and will continuously require energy cards to be attached to it.  Overall the line of Lugia and Lugia BREAK from this set is 3 out of 5, average overall and worthy of a look when deck building.
