>The basics: This card is a level up with a great 110 hp. It has a generally poor x2 weakness to colorless and no resistance, but its free retreat is amazing!!! Its poke power, healing breath, allows you to remove all damage counters from your sp pokemon when played, which is amazing! But what makes this card great is its attack, dragon rush, for three colorless energy,(1 with an energy gain and DCE) can hit any of your opponents pokemon for 80 damage, but with the cost of discarding 2 energy attached to carchomp c


>This card can abuse the SP engine, which automatically makes it fast and disruptive. Along with double colorless energy and energy gain, you can fully load up garchomp c in one turn after discarding the two energy the last turn.

>There isn't really a main strategy for this card. Its poke power will definitely catch your opponent off guard, especially if they are playing some sort of damage spread deck, and its attack will easily get rid of any of your opponents key setup pokemon, or main attacker. This is basically its strategy

>There is one card that garchomp C LV.X partners greatly with: Luxray GL LV.X. This card also has a poke power, bright look. It can drag up anything the turn you play him down!!! This can easily drag up have retreat pokemon. Both cards are disruptive, abuse the sp engine, no wonder Luxchomp is the most winning deck in our format

> If you don't play SP your best counter is any colorless pokemon that an do more than 60 damage. If you do play SP, consider ambipom G, which will OH KO an opposing garchomp after using dragon rush, or you can use dragonite FB, which will one shot garchomp even with energy.

>Disruption, speed....All I can say when it comes to strengths and pros.

>Weakness to colorless, and no resistance, Can not ht mew two(resolve this by using dialga G LV.X to counter it.) and can be KOed in one turn by machamp. That's really it.

>The good thing about this card that you can get it in a tin...that's right!! One of the best cards in the current meta can be bought in a tin. The Japanese form of This card can also be found in Japanese starter decks...OH MAN!!!STARTER DECKS!!! that would be the last place i would hope to find garchomp in, unless I'm in Japan

>Artwork, both the promo and pack version of this card have excellent artwork.

> I would give this card a 9.9 out of 10. Machamp Mew two, and all colorless pokemon that can hit it in one hit are all part of that 0.1 that is missing.

Just to avoid any confusion:

Garchomp [C] Lv. X (Supreme Victors #145/147) is the card you portrayed in the picture. It does not come in a tin. The card that you are probably thinking of is Garchomp [C] Lv. X (Black Star Promo #DP46). Both cards have the same PokéPower and attack, but they are technically two different cards.
The review is excellent, nonetheless.
