Slugma -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Slugma Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Slugma from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Slugma is a basic, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Slugma does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Flamethrower.  This move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one fire, and does 50 damage, however when using this move you have to discard an energy card attached to it.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Slugma is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Magcargo, 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 I would definitely not use this card in a deck.  I say this because you can't use this card as a starter type card because it requires so many energy cards to attack and is so slow, and you can't really use this card later in the game because it only has 70 hp.  So unless you are using Magcargo with this card, do not use this card at all.  If for some strange reason you use this card in your deck, set it up on the bench, putting at least 4 energy cards on it, so you can for sure use Flamethrower multiple times in a row.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a terrible basic Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  Other than having a good hp, this card has a high retreat cost and a terrible move, that not only requires a lot of energy to attack and requires more each turn, but it doesn't even do average damage.  So I would recommend staying away from this card at all costs.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Slugma from the X and Y set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Slugma's stage 1 evolution in Magcargo, which is also from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
