Scolipede -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Scolipede Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Scolipede from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Scolipede is a stage 2, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 150.  Scolipede is the stage 2 evolution of Whirlipede, and before that Venipede, both of those Pokemon I have reviewed the past couple of days, and both of those Pokemon are in this set.  Scolipede has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Scolipede's Ability is the same as its previous two evolutions, its Ability is called Poison Point and says that if Scolipede is your active Pokemon and is attacked, the attacking Pokemon is now poisoned.  Besides the Ability, Scolipede has one move called Venoshock which requires four energy cards, two each of colorless and psychic, and does 80 damage plus 40 more damage if the defending Pokemon is poisoned.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Scolipede is a stage 2 Pokemon, you'll have to first get Venipede and then Whirlipede into play.  If you read my previous two reviews, I like Venipede better than Whirlipede, so if you can start the game with Venipede I would, but if you don't, I would evolve this whole line of the bench.  Either way, you're going to want to get four energy cards on Scolipede and then use Venoshock every turn, if you evolve Venipede to Scolipede in the active Pokemon spot more than likely the defending Pokemon will be damaged already so Venoshock should do 120 damage per turn, but if not, it will do 80 damage the first turn and 120 damage the second turn.  I would only use a 2-1-1 line of Venipede, Whirlipede, and Scolipede in a psychic type deck.  I would only use this amount of cards because Scolipede is quite slow and will take up too many energy cards if you have too many of them in your deck, this way with only 4 Pokemon from this line in your deck, you'll have a better chance of being able to set up this line on your bench instead of having to put one of these Pokemon into the active Pokemon spot before it's ready.  If you choose to use more Pokemon cards from this line in your deck I would recommend putting a couple basic Pokemon cards in there that can do a fair amount of damage but only require one or two energy cards to attack and have a low retreat cost.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average stage 2 Pokemon card.  Even though this card is extremely slow to use and has a high retreat cost, I feel if you take the time to set this card up it can really be a determining factor in you winning the game.  120 damage per turn is quite a bit, especially when you can use the same move every turn without discarding energy cards.  So overall, this is a solid Pokemon line that I'll give a 3 out of 5 rating.
