Chinchou -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Chinchou Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Chinchou from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Chinchou is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Chinchou does not have an Ability, and it only has one move.  Its only move is called Electripult which requires two energy cards, one each of lightning and colorless, and does 20 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, usually with a basic Pokemon that has an evolution I would say to keep the basic Pokemon on the bench and evolve it into its evolution, but in this case, Chinchou's evolution, Lanturn, does not have a Pokemon card in any of the Black and White sets so at this time you'll not be able to evolve it into anything, you'll have to just use Chinchou in a deck if that is what you desire.  Because it doesn't evolve, I would try and keep it on the bench, put two energy cards on it, and move it into the active Pokemon spot at an opportune time.  The only time I would consider using this card in a deck would be if it was in a spread damage type deck, this card would work great with the Electivire card from yesterday.  You could use Electivire early in the game, then move Chinchou into the active Pokemon spot later, and do spot damage to whatever Pokemon of your opponent's is weak and would be knocked out by 20 damage.  Even if I had Chinchou in a spread damage type deck, I would not use more than 2, I more than likely would only use 1.  So again, if you're using a spread damage type deck this card is a possibility, otherwise I would look elsewhere.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card.  This card pretty much has average everything, hp, retreat cost, energy requirements to attack, and amount of damage it does.  This card is somewhat slow, requiring two energy cards to attack, but it makes up for this fact if you're using this card in a spread damage type deck.

Chinchou flashes it's bioelectrical antennae at each other in sequences to communicate among themselves. When doing so, the electric current makes them tingle slightly.

Since Chinchou lives in the dark ocean floor, its only means of communication (including exchanging signals) is its constantly flashing lights.
