Magikarp -- Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card Review

Magikarp Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Magikarp from the Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card Set.  Magikarp is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 30.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Magikarp does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Flailing Flop, for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage, however if you flip a coin and get a tails the move does nothing.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Magikarp is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Gyarados, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So this card keeps the pattern of if you're not going to use Magikarp with Gyarados, don't use Magikarp at all.  This card is pretty worthless on its own, not only does it have a low hp, but the only move it has may end up doing 0 damage for you per turn.  So I would recommend not using this card in a deck, if for some strange reason you want to use this card in a deck, it can be used in any deck, and you would of course use Flailing Flop every turn, but just like the move suggests, if you want to use this card in your deck, your deck will probably fail you.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an extremely poor basic Pokemon card from the Legendary Treasures Pokemon card set.  I would not use this card in any deck out there, other than having an average retreat cost, nothing about this card is good at all.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Magikarp from the Legendary Treasures set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Magikarp's stage 1 evolution in Gyarados, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
