Timburr -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Timburr Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Timburr from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Timburr is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Timburr does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move Timburr has is called Knock Back, this move requires two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless, and does 20 damage, plus it makes your opponent switch the their active Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon.  Timburr's second move is called Low Kick, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one fighting, and does 40 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Timburr is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Gurdurr and a stage 2 evolution in Conkeldurr, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions.  So on its own, I would only suggest using one of these cards in a fighting type deck and trying to get this card into the active Pokemon spot as early as possible to start the game.  The earlier you get this card in the active Pokemon spot the better because as soon as you get two energy cards on Timburr you can start using Knock Back, and basically doing spread damage on your opponent's Pokemon, hopefully all of which are basic early on in the game, thus after retreating Timburr or after it is knocked out, it will be that much easier to knock out all of your opponent's Pokemon that were in play because they will have damage on them.  If you aren't using Gurdurr with Timburr, I would not put three energy cards on Timburr, it just isn't worth it in my opinion, unless you can knock out the defending Pokemon by doing 40 damage.  So again, at most I would use 1 of these in a fighting type deck, but I would probably restrain from doing this.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a slightly below average basic Pokemon card.  Even though this card has an above average hp and two moves, I am still giving this card a below average rating because neither of Timburr's moves are very good, and this card has a somewhat high retreat cost.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
