Lugia -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Lugia Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lugia from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Lugia is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 120, it has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Lugia's Ability is called Pressure and says that as long as Lugia is your active Pokemon, all damage done from your opponent's attacks are reduced by 20.  Besides the Ability, Lugia has one move called Intensifying Burn, this move requires three colorless energy cards to use, and does 60 damage plus 60 more damage if you're facing a Pokemon EX.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lugia is a basic Pokemon with no evolution forms, other than Lugia BREAK, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, on its own, this card can help you do two things, number one, with its Ability it can help prevent damage onto your benched Pokemon, and number two, it can prevent your opponent from playing Pokemon EX cards in their active Pokemon spot since Intensifying Burn can do 120 damage a turn against those Pokemon.  So if you're building a deck and think that you'll be seeing lots of EX Pokemon, I would highly recommend putting one of these cards in your deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average, yet very solid Basic Pokemon card.  A card that can be used in any type deck, and is critical in taking down EX cards.  The main reason I'm only giving this card a 3 out of 5 rating is that if you're not facing an EX Pokemon or a powerful attacker, this card isn't that great.
