Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Brionne from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card set. Brionne is a Stage 1, Water type Pokemon card, with a HP of 90. It has a x2 weakness to Grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Brionne does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Wave Splash, for two Energy cards, one each of Water and Colorless, this move does 30 damage. Brionne's second move is called Disarming Voice, for three Energy cards, two Water and one Colorless, this move does 50 damage and Confuses the defending Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Brionne is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Popplio into play (I reviewed Popplio from this set yesterday) and then evolve Popplio into Brionne. Popplio does have a Stage 2 evolution in Primarina, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Brionne is the final evolution in this line. So if you read my review of Popplio, you'll know that I thought it was a very solid card overall, it had an above average HP, and two moves, both quick to use, but both doing average damage. I thought the card could easily be used as a Starter type Pokemon in a deck. So knowing this about Popplio and looking at this Brionne card, these first two Pokemon are both solid, you could easily start the game with Popplio in the active Pokemon spot and evolve it into Brionne quickly, and do up to 50 damage a turn with Disarming Voice. Unfortunately, Disarming Voice is a little underwhelming, so you may want to only use Wave Splash and attach other Energy cards to your Benched Pokemon. Personally, I would either just use Popplio or evolve the entire line on the Bench into Primarina or Primarina GX.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon Pokemon card set. I do like that this card has a solid HP, and two moves. This card has the potential to do damage and inflict a special condition every turn, but I wouldn't necessarily use this card in a deck without Primarina. Because of that fact, I would give Popplio and Brionne from this set a combined 2 out of 5 rating.
