Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Golurk from the Noble Victories set. This is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to electric type Pokemon, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost. Golurk doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Hammer Arm and does 60 damage for three energy cards, two fighting and one colorless. Besides doing the damage, you may discard the top card of your opponent's deck when using this move. Golurk's second move is called Hurrican Punch and for four energy cards, two each of fighting and colorless, this move does 50 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip four coins.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this is very strong stage 1 Pokemon that requires some energy cards to get going so you'll want to set this card up on your bench first. Once you get the necessary energy cards on it, I would use Hurricane Punch every turn, I usually don't prefer moves that rely on coin flips but even an unlucky person will be able to do 100 damage per turn once in awhile so it is definitely worth the chance and going with Hurricane Punch every turn. Obviously if you can knock out the defending Pokemon with 60 hp or less you'll want to use Hammer Arm instead.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. This card can do major damage but it is extremely slow, doesn't have that high of hp for the time it will take to get this card ready and will waste a lot of energy cards if needed to be retreated. With that being said, this card is definitely capable of knocking out some Pokemon and since it is only a stage 1 card, it should definitely be considered for fighting type decks.
