Mienshao -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Mienshao Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Mienshao from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Mienshao is a stage 1, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Mienshao does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  Mienshao's first move is called Knock Off, this move requires two energy cards, one each of colorless and fighting, and does 20 damage plus you get to discard a card from your opponent's hand.  Mienshao's second move is called Double Whip and this move does 70 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins, this move requires three energy cards to use, two colorless and one fighting.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Mienshao is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Mienfoo into play (I reviewed both Mienfoo cards from this set the past couple of days) and then evolve Mienfoo into Mienshao.  If you read the past two reviews, I would definitely recommend using the Mienfoo card numbered 87/149 instead of the earlier card from this set.  Mienfoo is a good starter type Pokemon card so you may have it in the active Pokemon spot when you evolve it into Mienshao.  So regardless of when you move Mienshao into the active Pokemon spot, use whichever move you have the sufficient amount of energy cards for.  I would always recommend using Double Whip over Knock Off except for when the defending Pokemon will be knocked out by 20 damage or less.  After reviewing both Mienfoo and Mienshao from this set I would recommend using a 1-1 line of Mienfoo and Mienshao in a fighting type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average stage 1 Pokemon card.  This card has an average hp, and two pretty average to slightly above average moves.  I like that this card has a low retreat cost yet can do up to 140 damage in 1 turn.  Overall, I would give the full line of Mienfoo and Mienshao from this set a 3 out of 5 rating.
