Gothorita -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Gothorita Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gothorita from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Gothorita is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Gothorita does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move it has is called Psypunch, which requires 2 colorless energy cards and does 30 damage.  Gothorita's second move is called Destructive Beam which requires three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, and does 50 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin, you can discard an energy card attached to the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Gothorita has a stage 2 evolution in Gothitelle (from Dragons Exalted), I would not use this card unless you use Gothitelle.  I say this because, I view this card as pretty weak, and there is no reason to use a weak card in a deck, especially when I think Gothita is pretty good, you don't want to turn a good Pokemon card into a below average Pokemon card.  But I guess if you either have to play Gothorita in order to use Gothitelle or you're just stubborn and have Gothorita in your deck, the strategy is quite simple.  If you have two energy cards on Gothorita use Psybeam, if you have three energy cards on Gothorita use Destructive Beam.  This card even though it isn't that good, does fit well in most decks because it requires mostly colorless energy cards, it really only needs one psychic energy card for either of its moves to attack.  But again, I would prefer to just use Gothita or use the full line of this Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average stage 1 Pokemon card.  This card has a below average hp, and two below average moves.  This card definitely could be worse, but I would not recommend using this card in a deck if you don't have to.  So if I were to rate just Gothita and Gothorita from this set I would give them an overall rating of 3.

The second way to find what you're looking for is by going into the main section of the item you are looking for and simply look at the sub categories to see which most closely matches your item.....

There have been four released in English, two in Emerging Powers, one in Dragons Exalted and one more in Boundaries Crossed. All four have been uncommon. A fifth was released only in Japan so far and was part of a boxed collection and thus has no rarity.
