Pyroar BREAK -- Steam Siege Pokemon Card Review

Pyroar BREAK Steam Siege Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pyroar BREAK from the Steam Siege 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 Pyroar, so basically this card is a Stage 2 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.  Pyroar BREAK is a BREAK (essentially a Stage 2), fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 160.  It has the same weakness, resistance and retreat cost as the Pyroar you're evolving it from.  Pyroar BREAK does not have an Ability and it only has one moved called Kaiser Tackle, for three energy cards, two fire and one colorless, this move does 180 damage, however Pyroar does 50 damage to itself.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Pyroar BREAK is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Litleo into play and evolve it into Pyroar before you can evolve Pyroar into Pyroar BREAK.  I have reviewed both Litleo and Pyroar from this set previously and if you've read those reviews you'll know that I thought Litleo was below average because it only had one move and that move required two energy cards to attack and was based off of a coin flip, but I did like Pyroar very well, it had two powerful moves and a high HP.  So knowing this about the first two Pokemon in this line and looking at this BREAK card, if you're already using a 1-1 line of Litleo and Pyroar in your deck, I would highly recommend using 1 of this card, just because it ups the HP of Pyroar and it gives you a lot more one hit knock out potential.  I would mainly stick to the moves on Pyroar since they don't do any damage to Pyroar, but if you're facing an EX or Mega EX, I would definitely use Kaiser Tackle and for sure knock them out in two moves or less.  If you are going to use this card in a deck, it would be smart to include a few Potion or Super Potion trainers to remove damage inflicted by Pyroar BREAK.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a very good BREAK Pokemon card from the Steam Siege set.  This card continues the trend from Pyroar in this set of powerful attacks with a solid HP, although I don't like the fact that the one move that this BREAK card has does 50 damage to Pyroar, 180 damage per turn for three energy cards is excellent and since BREAK cards can use Pyroar's moves too, this card works well overall and together, I would give the line of Litleo, Pyroar, and Pyroar BREAK a 4 out of 5 rating.
