Golduck #35/143 -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Golduck Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Golduck from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second of two Golduck cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  Today's Golduck card is a stage 1, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a free retreat cost.  Golduck does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  Its first move is called Amnesia which requires one colorless energy card and does 20 damage, plus it makes your opponent not able to use a specific moving of your choosing during their next turn.  Golduck's second move is called Aquafall which requires two water energy cards and does 90 damage.  However after using this card you must discard all energy cards attached to Golduck.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Golduck is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Psyduck into play (I reviewed both Psyduck cards from this set the past few days) and then evolve Psyduck into Golduck.  If you've read the two reviews about Psyduck, I don't think either Psyduck card is very good from this set, so you'll never want to put Psyduck into the active Pokemon spot until you can evolve it into Golduck.  Once you get Golduck in play, you can move it into the active Pokemon spot whenever you like because it has a free retreat cost and can retreat whenever without wasting energy cards.  Compared to yesterday's Pokemon which I suggested moving in and out of play using Confuse Ray, this card is more of a card to stay in the active Pokemon when it is moved there, then when it is about to get knocked out, I would then use Aquafall and try to retreat it to the bench after that.  This Golduck card is very good at defense, so if you're facing a powerful Pokemon, I would move this card into the active Pokemon spot and use Amnesia every turn, not only will your opponent not be able to use that powerful move, but you'll be doing damage every turn with this card.  I would definitely recommend using this card in a water type deck, I would suggest using a 2-2 line of Psyduck and Golduck in your deck, I would use 1 of each Golduck in this set.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a very solid stage 1 Pokemon card and is definitely worth its value in any deck.  After reviewing this card it is very difficult for me to choose which one I like better, I think they both are very good.  I like how this Golduck card also has a free retreat cost, it has a higher hp, and can do more damage, and is very good defensively.  So I guess after saying that, I would give the slight edge to this card over yesterday's Golduck.  Overall though, I again give this line a 3 out of 5 rating.
