Skarmory -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Skarmory Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Skarmory from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Skarmory is a basic, metal type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Skarmory does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move this card has is called Cargo Jet, this move requires one colorless energy card and allows you to draw three cards from your deck if you choose to discard a Team Plasma card from your hand.  Skarmory's second move is called Steel Wing, this move requires three energy cards, two metal and one colorless, and does 40 damage plus reduces any damage done to Skarmory during your opponent's next turn by 20.

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.  Because this card requires three energy cards before it can actually use an attack that does damage you'll want to set this card up on your bench.  I would not suggest using this card for Cargo Jet because not only does this move require an energy card but it requires you to discard another card from your hand whereas a trainer card would do this same thing for free and allow you to still attack.  So if I were using this card in my deck, I would keep Skarmory on the bench, attach three energy cards to it and then when it is in the active Pokemon spot every turn I would use Steel Wing.  With that being said, I would not use this card in a deck at all, I don't like anything about this card, moves wise, neither are very good.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a sub-par basic Pokemon card from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card set.  This is definitely one of the worst stage 1 cards I have reviewed lately and it is definitely a card you'll never want to use in a deck.  Besides having a good hp and low retreat cost, Cargo Jet is basically an extra expensive trainer card and Steel Wing does below average damage every turn with no way of doing any more damage.
