Tangela -- Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card Review

Tangela Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Tangela from the Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card Set.  Tangela is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to water type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Tangela does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Beat, for one grass energy card this move does 10 damage.  Tangela's second move is called Flog, for three energy cards, two colorless and one grass, this move does 20 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 Tangela is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Tangrowth, 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 on its own, this card could be used in a grass type deck if and only if you need one more basic Pokemon in your deck.  I would not use more than one of these cards in a deck.  The strategy around this card would be to get it into the active Pokemon spot early and use Beat and eventually Flog or to just have this card in your deck to make sure you can get a basic Pokemon card onto your bench.  One thing you should notice about this card is that if you just want to use Beat on this card, you'll have to add another energy card to it to retreat it.  I personally would not use this card in a deck, but it isn't the worse basic Pokemon card out there.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average to slightly below average basic Pokemon card from the Legendary Treasures set.  I like that this card has above average hp for a basic Pokemon and that it has two moves.  Neither of these two moves are that great, and to retreat this card it costs two energy cards, so that is why I can't give this card higher than an average rating.  This card could be used in a deck on its own, but I wouldn't recommend it.

the last set with tangela was boundaries crossed and you gave it a 2/5 rating

but i don't really get why you gave the legendary treasures one a better rating. the second attack does 20 or 40 damage, while the BC's 2nd attack does 50 for the same energy cost. it also can heal itself and has 10 hp more. so the BC is better than the LT one in my opinion.

You should review Trainer cards too. Every competitive deck runs 25+ Trainers.
