Golurk -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Golurk Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Golurk from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Golurk is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130.  It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Golurk does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Iron Fist of Justice, this move requires two colorless energy cards to use and does 60 damage, however if you have an Team Plasma Pokemon in play the move does nothing.  Golurk's second move is called Shadow Punch, this move requires four energy cards, two each of psychic and colorless, and does 80 damage per turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Golurk is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Golett into play (I reviewed Golett from this set yesterday) and then evolve Golett into Golurk.  If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Golett was an average basic Pokemon card but the thing that was holding it back some was its high retreat cost.  Well after reviewing this Golurk card you'll know that it has an even higher retreat cost than Golett did, so if you plan on using this Pokemon line in your deck, I would either include a lot of Switch trainers or only have a 1-1 line and make sure Golett and/or Golurk is set up on your bench before moving it into the active Pokemon spot, since both Pokemon have high hp, you can move either one into the active Pokemon spot as soon as they can attack.  If I were to use this Golurk can in a deck, I would make sure to have none or minimal Team Plasma Pokemon in it so I could utilize Golurk's Iron Fist of Justice move, because this move requires only colorless energy it can really be used in any type deck.  Shadow Punch is an average move, but I would primarily use Iron Fist of Justice for its quickness.  Of course if you think you'll need to retreat Golurk you'll have to put four energy cards on it anyways so then you can use Shadow Punch.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average stage 1 Pokemon card from the Plasma Blast set.  I definitely like that this card has an extremely high hp, and two moves both doing a good amount of damage.  But this card only gets an average rating from me because you need so many energy cards to retreat it, because of this you can't use this card solely for its Iron Fist of Justice move.  Overall the line of Golett and Golurk from the Plasma Blast set is an average line, it gets a 3 from me.
