Incineroar -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Incineroar Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Incineroar from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Incineroar is a Stage 2, Fire type Pokemon card, with a HP of 160.  It has a x2 weakness to Water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Incineroar does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is Fire Fang, for two energy cards, one each of Fire and Colorless, this move does 30 damage, plus the defending Pokemon is burned.  Incineroar's second move is called Darkest Lariat, for three energy cards, two Fire and one Colorless, this move does 100 damage times the number of heads you get when flipping two coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Incineroar is a Stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Litten into play and then evolve it into Torracat before you can evolve Torracat into Incineroar, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last two days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both cards were average overall.  Litten could easily be used as a starter type Pokemon in a Fire type deck since it had an above average HP and two quick attacking moves.  Torracat was also solid, with one move doing up to 60 damage with coin flips, and its other move doing 90 damage per turn with a Burning Energy card.  So knowing this about the first two Pokemon in this line and looking at Incineroar, if you're already using these two Pokemon in your deck, I would suggest using one Incineroar card, similar to Torracat, you'll want to make sure a Trick Coin Trainer is attached to Incineroar, giving it a much better shot at doing major damage every turn with Darkest Lariat.  I could also see wanting to use this card in a deck if several of your Pokemon already inflict the Burn special condition, therefore making your deck that much better.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set.  Even though this card has the potential to do 200 damage per turn, I am only giving this card a 3 out of 5 rating because Darkest Lariat is based off of coins flips and is a Stage 2 card, so it will take a while to get set up.  In a Fire type deck, this card is worth a look, altogether, this entire line gets a 4 out of 5 rating from me, each card is solid individually making the sum of the cards greater than the individual ratings.
