Snorlax -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Snorlax Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Snorlax from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Snorlax is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Snorlax does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move it has is called Double Lariat, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 40 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip 2 coins.  Snorlax's second move is called Rollout, this move requires four colorless energy cards and does 60 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Snorlax is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  Besides not having any evolutions, because this is a colorless type Pokemon that does not require a specific type of energy to attack, this card will work in any type deck.  However, with that being said, I would definitely be cautious about putting this card in any deck at all.  I say this because even though this card does have a high hp, it is extremely slow, and doesn't do much damage wise.  So if you wanted to use this card in a deck, make sure to use only one, and then try and keep this card on your bench until it has at least three energy cards on it, you can then move it into the active Pokemon spot and use Rollout whenever you can, especially if it will knock out the defending Pokemon, but if you're feeling lucky you can always give Double Lariat a go.  I wouldn't use this card in a deck, unless all my other Pokemon are extremely quick and they can't do much damage, this card would then be a nice change to the other cards you have in your deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is below average basic Pokemon card.  This card does have a good hp, but both of Snorlax's moves are below average, and both of its moves are slow and take a long time to develop.  What really hurts this card is that it has a high retreat cost, so if you're forced to put this card into the active Pokemon spot before its ready, it won't be able to do much for quite awhile.

They are usually wild in Knato, but they will block paths. To wake him up & be able to continue, you must use a Poke-Flute or the Pokegear set to the Poke-Flute channel. Then, you can either defeat it or capture it!

I don't have a YouTube account, but you can send it to:
