of the Day
everyone.. I'm back with a CotD on Typhlosion (with Fire
Recharge). This card was also popular at the STS. I
had a bunch of quotes for people on this card, but I lost
Recharge is a great power. It works great with
multiple Typhlosions especially. It allows cards
like Blaine's Charizard, Blaine's Arcanine, even Base Set
Charizard to be extremely effective, even in standard
With 2 Typhlosions you can average an extra free energy
each turn. This gives you a huge advantage over your
opponent, and this is why you can actually get away with
playing Typhlosion AND Blaine's Arcanine in standard and
still win with it.
Burst is a nice attack. Oddly, you'll probably want to
flip tails more than heads to avoid damaging yourself, but
a metal can take away that 20 and bring it down to 0 if
you'd rather not take a chance. You can always
retreat to get the metal off.. it can provide enough
energy for itself.
50 HP Cyndaquil is obviously the better choice, with a
decent Quick Attack, and a Fireworks attack that can slow
it down, but prepare for Typhlosion. The Quilava
with Char is also the better choice over the other,
considering Char Counters are so difficult to get around.
Magby is less popular because Igglybuff is a better
Slowking stopper (although in some ways it isn't), a
nicely timed Sputter can hurt the deck. After using
an attack like Blaine's Arcanine's Firestorm, if you don't
have enough energy in your hand, your opponent could
Sputter and stall you for a lot of turns.
I had to rate Typhlosion I think I'd give it a 8.0/10.
This is an extremely underrated card, and it is a
tournament playable deck.
