Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gothita from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set. Gothita is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 60. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Gothita does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move it has is called Pound, this move requires one psychic energy card and does 10 damage. Gothita's second move is called Psypunch, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Gothita has a stage 1 evolution in Gothorita, and a stage 2 evolution in Gothitelle (in the Dragons Exalted set), I would more than likely include both of these evolution Pokemon in a deck with Gothita. However with that being said, Gothita is an outstanding starter Pokemon which can be used on its own in a psychic type deck. I would put up to 3 Gothita Pokemon cards in a deck depending on the number of other basic Pokemon cards you have in your deck. I would try and put Gothita into the active Pokemon spot immediately then depending on the amount of energy cards attached to it, use either Pound or Psypunch. This card will work well in dual type decks because it requires little to no psychic energy cards to use its attacks.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is an above average basic Pokemon card and a basic Pokemon card that can be used on its own and is a very solid start to a Pokemon line that ends with a stage 2 Pokemon. There really isn't anything I dislike about this card, it has average hp, a low retreat cost, and two very solid moves. I guess you could always hope for an Ability as well, but regardless this is a great basic Pokemon card that is a great starter Pokemon for a deck.
