Chesnaught -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Chesnaught Pokemon XY Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Chesnaught from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Chesnaught is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 160.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Chesnaught's Ability is called Spiky Shield and says that whenever Chesnaught is attacked when in the active Pokemon spot, the attacking Pokemon needs to put 3 damage counters on itself.  Besides the Ability, Chesnaught just has one move called Touchdown, this move requires four energy cards, two each of grass and colorless, and does 90 damage, plus it heals 20 damage from itself.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Chesnaught is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Chespin into play and then evolve it into Quilladin before you can evolve Quilladin into Chesnaught, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  Both of those Pokemon cards are average to slightly below average, so it makes this card that much more important to see if you should be using any of the Pokemon in this line at all.  Like I mentioned, both of the first two Pokemon in this line aren't the greatest, but this Chesnaught card is pretty good in my opinion, so I could definitely see using this line in a grass type deck.  I would try and evolve into Chesnaught on the bench and put four energy cards on it there, but even if you don't have four energy cards on Chesnaught when it is in the active Pokemon spot, it can still basically attack every turn because of its Ability.  So, I wouldn't base a deck around this line, but this line would take up a big part of the Pokemon in a deck, I would use a 3-2-2 line of Chespin, Quilladin, and Chesnaught.  Of course once you get Chesnaught into the active Pokemon spot you'll just want to keep attacking with Touchdown every single turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an excellent stage 2 Pokemon card from the XY set.  I like that Chesnaught has a very high hp, a great Ability, and one above average move.  As long as you are willing to take some time to set up Chesnaught on your bench and be willing to discard four energy cards when retreating, this card is a very excellent card to use.  With that being said, I am only going to give this Pokemon family, Chespin, Quilladin, and Chesnaught from the X and Y set, a 3 out of 5 combined rating, it is just an average line overall, individually there were two 3 ratings given, and one 5.
