Pyroar -- Steam Siege Pokemon Card Review

Pyroar Steam Siege Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pyroar from the Steam Siege Pokemon Card Set.  Pyroar is a stage 1, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Pyroar does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Flame Charge, for two energy cards, one each of fire and colorless, this move does 60 damage, it also allows you to search your deck for a fire energy card and attach it to Pyroar.  Pyroar's second move is called Incinerate and for three energy cards, two fire and one colorless, this move does 90 damage, plus this move also lets you remove all Pokemon Tool cards attached to your opponent's active Pokemon before doing the damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Pyroar is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Litleo into play (I reviewed Litleo from this set yesterday) and then evolve Litleo into Pyroar.  There is a Pyroar BREAK card in this set and I'll be reviewing it tomorrow.  If you read yesterday's review of Litleo, you'll know that I thought it was a below average Basic Pokemon card, the reason it was below average is that it only had one move that either did damage or not based on a coin flip, other than that, the card was solid with a low retreat cost and average HP.  So knowing this about Litleo and looking at this Pyroar card, if you're building a fire type deck, it would be best to use a 1-1 line of this Pokemon family and set it up on the bench, especially since Litleo needs two energy cards to attack.  Pyroar is a straight out attacker, with both moves doing major damage, add in the fact it has a high HP for a Stage 1 evolution, and this is a card you definitely want to use in your deck.

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 Steam Siege set.  This is one powerful card and one that should definitely be used in fire type decks out there.  You can't complain about being able to do major damage every single turn plus do more with both moves.  So again, I would highly recommend using this line in a deck, and together with Litleo from this set would give both cards a 3 out of 5 rating.

All right, if my calculations are correct, up until Steam Siege, there are 1,398 rare Pokémon cards in total. Not including UR, SR, or any other type of rares. Hope I'm right...
