Phantump -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Phantump Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Phantump from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Phantump is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Phantump does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Astonish, for one psychic energy card this move allows you to randomly choose a card from your opponent's hand and have them put it back into their deck.  Phantump's second move is called Hook, this move requires three energy cards, one psychic and two colorless, and does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Phantump is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Trevenant, 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 strongly discourage anyone from using this card in their deck.  Not only is this card extremely slow, but when you finally do get three cards on Phantump to use Hook, it does underwhelming damage.  So if for some strange reason you want to use this card in your deck, make sure to set it up on your bench and then use Hook every turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is one of the worst basic Pokemon cards I've reviewed in awhile and definitely the worst card I have looked at so far from the X and Y set.  Not only is this card extremely slow and has a high retreat cost, the only move that does damage does hardly any for the amount of energy cards it requires.  So make sure to stay away from this card at all costs.

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