Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lurantis GX from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set. Lurantis GX is a Stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with a HP of 210. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Lurantis GX does not have an Ability but it does have three moves. Its first move is called Flower Supply, for one grass energy card this move does 40 damage and allows you to attach 2 basic Energy cards from your discard pile to your Pokemon in any way you like. This card's second move is called Solar Blade, for three energy cards, two grass and one colorless, this move does 120 damage, plus heals 30 damage from Lurantis GX. The GX move on Lurantis GX is called Chloroscythe, for one grass type energy card, this move does 50 damage times the number of grass type energy attached to Lurantis GX.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lurantis GX is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Fomantis into play (I reviewed Fomantis from this set yesterday) and then evolve Fomantis into Lurantis GX. If you read yesterday's review of Fomantis, you'll know that I thought it was an average to above average Basic Pokemon card overall, and I highly recommended it as a starter type Pokemon in a grass type deck. I liked that the card had two good moves, the first allowing you to attach a grass type energy to one of your Pokemon from your deck, and the second move doing 20 damage for two energy cards. The Fomantis card works very well with Lurantis GX from this set. Just a note, there is not a regular Lurantis card in the Sun and Moon set, so to use the full line of this Pokemon family, you'll have to use a GX card, which if knocked out, two prize cards are taken instead of one. The reason Fomantis works so well with this card is that both Fomantis and Lurantis help attach basic energy cards to your Pokemon, therefore setting up your deck that much quicker, plus it makes your deck able to use less energy since you can search for what you need, you don't have to draw them. Besides attaching energy, which is the main reason to use this line, Solar Blade is a well above average move, and if you wanted to, you get set up this line on the bench, getting 4+ grass type energy cards on Lurantis GX, and doing 200+ damage in one turn with its GX move, just remember, only one GX move can be used per game.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is a very good GX Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set. In my opinion, there aren't any negatives on this card, it has a well above average HP, and all three moves on this card are pretty great, it can help set up your Pokemon, as well as do major damage every single turn. Plus, the 210 HP on this card is made even higher when you can heal 30 damage a turn when using Solar Blade. Together with Fomantis from this set, which I gave a 4 out of 5 rating, I would give this entire line a 5 out of 5 rating, it is a great one, and one that should be highly considered when deck building.
