Ability description and explanation:

"Soar - This Pokémon can fly over Pokémon that don't have Soar using an MP Move"


  • Damage wise, Moltres is the stronger of the three legendary birds and its purple move is probably in the middle. Burning multiple figures at once can be game changing. Press Activate Ability on the beginning of your turn to use this move after it landed. You can choose to use this effect any time you want as long as the marker is still on Moltres. It burns every figure in a straight line frem the one it was used on.
  • When you have removed the charge marker from your figure. Do not approach Vibrava or any other figure with an ability that stops you from attacking.
  • You can safely buy this figure with materials if it fits your strategy.
  • Crushing Flames are the move you want to focus on when leveling up.
  • This figure is fairly strong against both burn and paralyze, but confuse may become a problem.
  • A good plate to combine with this Pokémon is the Tropical Energy plate. X Attack and Counter Attack could become very useful as well. Moltres benefits from Flame Energy.
  • Moltres is a fairly good counter to Reuniclus.
