Gligar -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Gligar Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gligar from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Gligar is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to lightning type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Gligar does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  Gligar's first move is called Tail Smack and for one fighting energy card this move does 10 damage.  Gligar's second move is called Wicked Jab, this move does 20 damage for two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless.  Plus, if you get a heads when you flip a coin while using Wicked Jab, the defending Pokemon is paralyzed.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Gligar is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Gliscor, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll probably want to use this card with that Pokemon.  With that being said, this card would be an excellent starter Pokemon in a fighting type deck.  I would include 2 or 3 of these cards in a fighting type deck so that I would have a good chance of being able to start the game with one of these Pokemon in my active Pokemon spot.  Once Gligar is in the active Pokemon spot you should use whichever move you have enough energy for.  So I would recommend using this card in a deck, even on its own without Gliscor.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average basic Pokemon card.  This card has an above average hp, low retreat cost, and two very solid moves.  What gives this card a boost from an average to an above average basic Pokemon card is the fact that Wicked Jab may end up paralyzing the defending Pokemon as well as doing 20 damage.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Gligar from the Boundaries Crossed set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Gligar's stage 1 evolution in Gliscor, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!

Ground/ Flying

I remember when Gold and Silver first came out, my brothers and I thought thought Gligar was the most over powered Pokemon ever because it was a Flying type that you couldn't hit with Thunder/ Thunderbolt :P

Gligar is Ground / Flying type. Gliscor is the same combination.

Thought Gligar doesn't actually fly... It glides using the membrane attached to its arms and legs
