Skarmory #96/149 -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Skarmory Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Skarmory from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second of two consecutive Skarmory cards I'll be reviewing from this set.  This Skarmory card is a basic, metal type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Skarmory does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move it has is called Metal Sound, this move confuses the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.  Skarmory's second move is called Swift and for three colorless energy cards, this move does 70 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Skarmory is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  Compared to yesterday's Skarmory card, this one is 1000 times better.  So if you want to use Skarmory in your metal type deck or any type deck with this card, this is the Skarmory card to use.  Because Swift requires all colorless energy cards this card will work in any deck, but it will be a tad bit better in a metal type deck because then you can use Metal Sound if you get Skarmory in the active Pokemon spot before you get three energy cards on it.  So with this card, I would try and get it out the bench, attach three energy cards to it, then move it into the active Pokemon spot and use Swift every turn.  I would use 1 to 2 of these cards in any type deck, but preferably a metal type deck.

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 is much  better than the other Skarmory card from this set and is a solid choice to use in any deck.  I like how this card has a high hp for a basic Pokemon card and two moves.  Metal Sound is an okay move, but the main reason you'll want to use this card is for Swift, which not only does above average damage but requires colorless energy cards so it can be used with whatever type of energy cards you like.
