Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Torracat from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card set. Torracat is a Stage 1, Fire type Pokemon card, with a HP of 90. It has a x2 weakness to Water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Torracat does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Fury Swipes, for one Fire type Energy card this move does 20 damage times the amount of heads from 3 coin flips. Torracat's second move is called Flamethrower, for three Energy cards, two Fire and one Colorless, this move does 90 damage, however an Energy card must be discarded after attacking.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Torracat is a Stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Litten into play (I reviewed Litten from this set yesterday) and then evolve Litten into Torracat. Litten does have a Stage 2 evolution in Incineroar, 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 Torracat is the final evolution in this line. So if you read my review of Litten, 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 Litten and looking at this Torracat card, I could easily see using the first two Pokemon in this line as soon as possible in a game, you could attach a Trick Coin Trainer card to Torracat and have a better shot at doing 60 damage with Fury Swipes, or set the line up on the bench, attaching a Burning Energy to it, therefore allowing you to do 90 damage a turn every single turn with Flamethrower.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is an average to above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Sun and Moon set. With the use of a Burning Energy, this card becomes above average and can do major damage every turn, I would have liked for this card to for sure do damage every turn, but you'll either have to have some luck with Fury Swipes, or some extra Energy when using Flamethrower. Together, I would give the first two Pokemon in this line a 3 out of 5 rating, the same rating I gave these cards individually.
