Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gogoat from the Pokemon XY Card Set. Gogoat is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Gogoat does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Lead, for one colorless energy card this move allows you to search your deck for up to two supporter cards and put them into your hand. Gogoat's second move is called Charge Dash, for three energy cards, two colorless and one grass, this move does 70 damage, plus you can choose to do 20 more damage, if you do, you have to do 20 damage to Gogoat.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Gogoat is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Skiddo into play (I reviewed Skiddo from this set yesterday) and then evolve Skiddo into Gogoat. If you read yesterday's review, you'll know that I thought Gogoat was a below average basic Pokemon card that should not be used on its own because it had two bad moves, and a high retreat cost. Knowing that Skiddo has a high retreat cost and not the greatest of moves, if you choose to use this entire line in your grass type deck, I would suggest evolving Skiddo into Gogoat on the bench and not putting Gogoat into the active Pokemon spot until you get three energy cards on it, then I would use Charge Dash every single turn, only doing 20 more damage when I would knock the Pokemon out. I wouldn't use this line in a deck of mine, but if you were to use this line, I wouldn't use more than a 1-1 line.
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 X and Y set. I do like a few things about this card, I like its high hp, and its move called Charge Dash, but Lead doesn't do anything for me, and when you look at this card with Skiddo, it really doesn't do anything for me. Altogether, I would give this line a 2 out of 5 rating, individually Skiddo was a 2, Gogoat was a 3.
