Shuckle -- Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card Review

Shuckle Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Shuckle from the Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card Set.  Shuckle is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Shuckle does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Share, for one grass energy card this move allows you to heal 40 damage from one of your benched Pokemon.  Shuckle's second move is called Double Stab, this move requires three energy cards, two grass and one colorless, and does 40 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Shuckle is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, you'll only want to use this card in a deck containing grass energy cards because the only move you really want to use on this card is Share.  I think of this card as a reusable trainer card.  I would keep this card on the bench most of the game, then if my bench Pokemon need healing, I would put this card into the active Pokemon spot, use Share a turn or two, then retreat Shuckle back to the bench.  The 80 hp on Shuckle should be enough to allow this card to last at least a turn in the active Pokemon spot no matter the time in the game.  I personally don't think it is a good idea to attach three energy cards to Shuckle to use Double Stab, because this move is based off of coin flips, the energy cards will be better used elsewhere.  I would probably include 1, possibly 2 of these in a grass type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average basic Pokemon card from the Legendary Treasures set.  I would probably use this card if I was building a grass type deck because it can heal 40 damage a turn so in my opinion it is better than a trainer card.  The reason I'm not giving this card a rating better than average is because Double Stab does not do anything for me at all and I would probably never use the move.

There's a wealth of literature out there which, hopefully, will be, you know, exploded in the future, and I personally find it very rewarding to be involved with classic storytelling, and sort of legendary legendary characters. See the link below for more info.
