Throh -- Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Review

Throh Emerging Powers Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Throh from the Emerging Powers Pokemon Card Set.  Throh is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Throh doesn't have an Ability and it only has one move called Scarf Hold which takes two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless and does 30 damage, and if you get a heads when you flip a coin, your opponent can't attack during their next turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a basic Pokemon card that doesn't have an evolution and since this card only has one move, the strategy for this card is extremely straightforward, whenever you have two energy cards on Throh and need to put a Pokemon into the active Pokemon spot, move Throh into that spot and start using Scarf Hold.  In my opinion, the earlier you get Throh into the active Pokemon spot, the more effective this card will be, because if you're lucking and flip heads a couple of times, it will prolong Throh's time in the active Pokemon spot and allow you to set up more Pokemon on your bench.  If I were to use Throh in my deck, I would include one of them in a mostly fighting type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  This is another pretty average basic Pokemon card.  There isn't anything on this card that really stands out to me, but overall if you need a filler card for your deck, this is one I wouldn't be afraid of putting in the deck.
