Lunatone -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Lunatone Pokemon X and Y Card Review
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lunatone from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Lunatone is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 80.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Lunatone does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Double Draw, for one colorless energy card this move allows you to draw two cards.  Lunatone's second move is called Moonblast, this move requires two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless, and does 20 damage plus any damage done to your Pokemon by your opponent during their next turn is reduced by 20.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lunatone is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Soltrock, 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 this card could easily be used in a fighting type deck if you're looking for that final basic Pokemon to use.  This card has a high hp so it will allow you to set up your benched Pokemon for awhile if you get Lunatone into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, and if you use Double Draw the first turn and Moonblast after that, you will have the potential to get evolution cards or energy cards you need with its first move and be able to do damage to the defending Pokemon with Lunatone's second move.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a slightly above average basic Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  Even though this card is above average in my opinion it isn't that great that I am going to give it a 4 rating.  I do like that it has a high hp, low retreat cost and two moves.  Both moves are average but Moonblast's extra effect may help you late in the game if you have Lunatone in the active Pokemon spot, it may save you from getting knocked out.  So all in all, if you need a solid basic Pokemon card to use in your fighting type deck, this card should definitely be considered.
