Sandile -- Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Review

Sandile Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sandile from the Plasma Freeze Pokemon Card Set.  Sandile is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Sandile does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Gentle Slap, this move requires two energy cards, one each of colorless and darkness, and does 10 damage plus 20 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Sandile is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Krokorok and a stage 2 evolution in Krookodile, 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 probably wouldn't recommend using this card in a deck, I say this because the only move Sandile has is fairly slow and cannot do major damage unless you get lucky and flip a heads.  Because of this, unless you don't have any other options, I would not recommend using this card.  If you have to use this card in a deck, you will have no choice but to attach two energy cards to it and use Gentle Slap every turn, hoping to flip a heads every turn so you can do 30 damage instead of just 10.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a way below average basic Pokemon card.  Like I mentioned in the strategy section of this post, I would not use this card in a deck on its own.  Even though it has above average hp compared to a similar basic Pokemon, Sandile has only one below average move and a high retreat cost which makes it way below average.
