Xatu -- Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card Review

Xatu Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Xatu from the Legendary Treasures Pokemon Card Set.  Xatu is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Xatu does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Fortunate Draw, for one psychic energy card this move makes you and your opponent play rock-paper-scissors, whoever wins gets to take three cards from their deck, and whoever loses has to discard three cards from their deck.  Xatu's second move is called Miracle Wing, this move does 60 damage for three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin the defending Pokemon is confused.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Xatu is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Natu into play (I reviewed Natu from this set yesterday) and then evolve Natu into Xatu.  If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Natu was a slightly below average basic Pokemon card because it had below average hp and only one move that required two energy cards to use.  So knowing this, if you decide to play Natu and Xatu in your deck, I would set the line up on your bench.  I wouldn't include more than 1 of each in a psychic type deck, and would mainly use Xatu's Miracle Wing move.  Fortunate Draw really doesn't do anything for me.  So make sure to set this line up on the bench since Xatu only has 90 hp and needs 3 energy cards to attack.  I personally wouldn't use this line in a deck, but overall it is about average.

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 Legendary Treasures set.  I don't like this card that much, but it does have an average hp, one above average move, one below average move, and a low retreat cost.  Overall, I would give the line of Natu and Xatu from the Legendary Treasures set a 2 out of 5 rating, Natu was a 2, Xatu was a 3.
