Ninetales BREAK -- Evolutions Pokemon Card Review

Ninetales BREAK Evolutions Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Ninetales BREAK from the XY Evolutions 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 Ninetales, 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.  Ninetales BREAK is a BREAK (essentially a Stage 2), fire type Pokemon card, with a HP of 140.  It has the same weakness, resistance and retreat cost as the Ninetales you're evolving it from.  Ninetales BREAK does not have an Ability and it only has one moved called Explosive Fireball, for two energy cards, one each of fire and colorless, this move does 10 damage plus 60 more damage for each fire energy card you choose to discard from Ninetales when using this attack.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Ninetales BREAK is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Vulpix into play and evolve it into Ninetales before you can evolve Ninetales into Ninetales BREAK.  I have reviewed both Vulpix and Ninetales from this set previously and both cards were average or above average.  The only downside with the Vulpix from this set was that it couldn't attack for only one energy card, but instead required two energy cards to do damage and confuse the defending Pokemon.  I was a huge fan of the Ninetales card from this set, with Burning Energy, it could do 120 damage per turn and it could also continuously switch the defending Pokemon with a benched one.  So knowing how good both Vulpix and Ninetales are from this set and looking at this Ninetales BREAK card, if you were planning on building a deck around Ninetales, definitely include this BREAK card with it.  Not only does this card give Ninetales more attack power, but if you use 3 Burning Energy cards to power Explosive Fireball, it does 190 damage a turn without having to discard anything, and it also gives Ninetales a much higher HP.  So if you're thinking of building a fire type deck, this is a card and line to build around, add in 4 Burning Energy cards, and this is a quick attacking, powerful deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is one of the better BREAK cards that I've reviewed in awhile, just like Ninetales from yesterday, without Burning Energy, this card wouldn't be that great, but with those Special Energy cards, this card is so powerful and it makes Ninetales from this set that much better.  So altogether, I would give the Vulpix, Ninetales, and Ninetales BREAK line from the Evolutions set a 5 out of 5 rating, it is a line a deck should be built around.
