Stunfisk -- Noble Victories Pokemon Card Review

Stunfisk Pokemon Card Noble Victories Set
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Stunfisk from the Noble Victories set. This is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to electric type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Stunfisk doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Trickle and for two energy cards, one each of electric and colorless, it does 30 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins.  Stunfisk's second move is called Thundershock and for three energy cards, two electric and one colorless it does 50 damage and paralyzes the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, you'll definitely want to make sure you don't put this card in a fighting type deck just because the card's type is fighting because if you do you won't be able to attack with this card.  This card needs to go in an electric type deck since that is the type of energy it needs to attack.  I would use whichever move I can depending on the amount of energy cards attached to Stunfisk, since its retreat cost is lower than either of its moves' cost I would recommend retreating it somewhat often if it gets close to being knocked out.  Since Stunfisk is a basic Pokemon, I would recommend 1, definitely no more than 2 in an electric type deck, since this card can't do anything too special I wouldn't personally put more than 1 in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. The more I look at this card the worse I think it is, I wouldn't use this card very often, I would probably find a stage 1 card that is similar to or better than this and use that card instead.  I do like that it has a good hp, and two average moves, but these two moves are very average thus rewarding this card with a below average rating.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Stunfisk from the Noble Victories set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Kyogre EX from the Dark Explorers set.
