Entei 14/98 -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

Entei Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Entei from the Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first of two consecutive Entei cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Entei is a basic, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 120, it has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Entei does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Burning Roar, for one colorless energy card this move allows you to discard the top four cards of your deck and if any of those cards are fire energy cards attach them to your Pokemon in any way that you'd like.  Entei's second move is called Combat Blaze, this move requires two fire energy cards to use and does 20 damage plus 20 more damage for each of your opponent's benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Entei is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, since there are two different Entei cards in this set, after I review the second one tomorrow, I can compare the two.  Just looking at this Entei card, the main move you'll want to use with this card is Combat Blaze.  Early on in the game when your opponent's bench is hopefully full you can then do 100 damage a turn for only two energy cards.  Also, if you take the time to get energy cards to the top of your deck, you could easily use Burning Roar and then get four energy cards onto your Pokemon at once.  This card isn't a  card you want to build a deck around but it definitely has some value, I could see using 1 of these in a fire type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average Basic Pokemon card from the Ancient Origins set.  There really isn't one thing that I dislike about this card since it has a high HP and two fairly decent moves.  I guess the only thing you can't do with this card is use it when your opponent has an empty bench, then it only does 20 damage a turn and becomes pretty weak.  But overall, I would definitely recommend using this card in a deck.
