Charizard G


Not content with having Dialga, Palkia, and Darkrai, now Cyrus has got himself a Charizard!


Don’t worry, there’s nothing to fear (at least not in the TCG), because there really isn’t anything special about this one.


100 HP is great though, even for an SP Basic. That X2 Water Weakness isn’t much fun, and Palkia G, Kingdra, and Gyarados will make it cry all the way to the discard pile. The Fighting Resistance is better than nothing, and could help against tech Relicanths and rogue Primeape decks, but it won’t save you from Machamp ,which is pretty much the only commonly played Fighting Pokémon. A Retreat cost of three is absolutely disgusting (I thought Charizard could fly???), so be prepared to use up PokeTurns if you ever play this.


Charizard G’s attacks are pretty horrible too. Flame Jet for[R][C] lets you hit anything for 40 damage . . . as long as you flip heads. As a sniper, it is completely outclassed by the Crobat G/Honchkrow G combination. Its other attack, Heat Blast, is an uninspiring vanilla 50 for three Energy attack which isn’t going to set the world alight (or anything else for that matter).


So, what you have here is a pretty bad Pokémon that I assume will only be played by people who want to try the LV X. Charizard G LV X is a difficult and demanding card to play in itself, and it gets absolutely no help whatsoever from its Basic. There’s just no synergy between them at all, and that is going to lead to the inevitable low score.




Modified: 1.25 (The LV X needed help. This doesn’t provide it)

Limited: 1.25 (The Mediocre attacks don’t cut it here either)
