Hey guys its Anas, here making my Card Review in Pokemon i choose to review

Darkrai Lv.X
A card from Dark type.

General description:
This card is 1 in a million. It has an awesome poke-body and an attack to nearly double its power! Not to mention its a basic lv. x (meaning it level ups from a basic pokemon)! I also love how it pops out to grab its victims. and this is also the card i got from my first Pokemon Booster pack.

Uses:
I'd use it to power up strong Dark pokemon. Its also puts your opponent to deep sleep for 2 flips and a chance for KO! It also powers up sleep hole if the defending pokemon is still asleep and alive

Strategies and game play:
My main stradegy with this card is its poke-body. Its Endless Darkness attack is broken!

Combos with other cards:
You can use cards such as Drapion Lv. X to deliver 80 (if all energy needed are darkness) and 40 to a bench, Honkrow Lv. X to win with Darkness Wing, or my favorite, Tyranitar SF. It turns its grind from 20x to 30x which helps a ton. Or Spining Tail for 80 to active and 30 to all bench! I also plan to add the upcoming Darkrai G to my deck mainly because of Darkrai Lv. X attack. Even if the pokemon isn't dark, you can add Weavile SW for Dark Engage. It can really help with strong colorless pokemon. Its shadow charge adds a whole bunch of power to Tyranitar, Drapion Lv. X, etc. Level Max is a must have with this card!

Ways to counteract it:
Fighting Pokemon. You just need a Fighting pokemon that can do at least 50 since Darkrai Lv. X has F x 2. And only 100 hp. Also, If alone, pokemon that can't be asleep is a problem. But if it has the energy, it can do at leat 60 or 70.

Strengths/Pros:
Its Dark Shadow is its best on the bench, and Endless Darkness as active. It makes any darkness pokemon powerful. Even sabelye SF gets a boost. It can KO anything with less hp than it (as long its at full hp). It is also easy to get out too.

Weaknesses/Cons:
DIALGA G LV. X!!!!! It basically demolishes this strategy! Also with a low hp of 100, it can be KO'd quickly against a strong pokemon. You just got to hop he/she gets at least 1 tails when flipping. I also have a problem when its poisoned. But the only way to get rid of it is a trainer or retreat. Although it only requires 1 to retreat, you could still be building on your bench. It also has a problem with Regigigas Lv. X. Sacrifice does not help at all.
Torterra Lv. X is bad for you when it does 100.

Variations:
This card is from Great Enconters and can come as an Ultra Rare or a tin promo.




Couple of the artworks..

Artwork and aesthetics:
I like how it reaches for you and the dark matter is illuminating from it.

Overall rating:
I give this card a 9/10 it is my favorite card but has some weaknesses.

Hope you guys enjoy it Cya all in next review please RATE and Commentson my first ever review.
