Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Amoonguss from the Noble Victories set. This is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. Amoonguss has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Amoonguss doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Toxic and for one grass energy card it poisons the defending Pokemon and allows you to put 2 damage counters on that Pokemon between turns instead of one. Amoonguss's second move is called Body Slam which takes two colorless energy cards and does 30 damage, plus paralyzes the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, I would recommend putting this card in a spread damage type deck since the main move on Amoonguss is Toxic which poisons Pokemon. And since Poison does a little damage every turn you'll want to have some damage already on the defending Pokemon so that when you use Toxic first then Body Slam the next couple of turns the defending Pokemon should be knocked out quickly and then when another Pokemon moves in off your opponent's bench it should have damage on it already and you can knock out that Pokemon in a move or two as well. Since this card only requires colorless energy cards or 1 grass energy card this card is very versatile and can fit nicely in many decks. If I were to use this card in my deck I would use a 2-1 line of Amoonguss and Foongus.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. This card is a very good card that inflicts special conditions and does damage, however even though this card has a good hp, two good moves, and a somewhat low retreat cost, there really isn't anything special about this card that sets it apart from other cards like this, so that's why I'm giving this card a 3 out of 5 rating.
