Time to go over Fusion Strike. I’ll be breaking these into parts since the set is so large.
Ratings are determined on a scale and bonus marks are awarded if applicable. I do this to highlight cards that might not get attention otherwise; these cards can still be fun to look at and you can theorize what could’ve been or what could be in the future. This review will focus entirely on Standard with Expanded hitting the wayside for the time being. To explore Expanded further, check out Stéphane’s latest article:

Rankings are often “relative” to a card’s class (Supporter, VMAX, Special Energy…) it would be unfair to compare two different types of cards with the same rating and say one is definitively better than the other. My numerical rankings are merely a gauging tool so that I can develop my thoughts on each, and for you to get a better idea of what I think is strong.
