Rhyhorn -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Rhyhorn Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rhyhorn from the X and Y Pokemon card set.  Rhyhorn 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 three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Rhyhorn does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Dig Out, for one fighting energy card this move does 10 damage and forces you to discard the top card of your card, however if this card is a fighting energy card, you may attach it to Rhyhorn.  Rhyhorn's second move is called Horn Drill, this move does 40 damage for three energy cards, two colorless and one fighting.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Rhyhorn is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Rhydon and a stage 2 evolution in Rhyperior, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions.  So on its own, I would not recommend using this card.  I say this because even though Rhyhorn has a high hp and two moves, the retreat cost is too high for my liking, this card is too slow to do much damage, and both moves do way below average damage.  However, if you're forced to use this card in your fighting type deck, make sure to not put more than one of these in your deck and use whichever move you have the necessary amount of energy for.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is another very poor basic Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  Even though this card is fully loaded with a good hp and two moves, this card is still terrible in my opinion.  Neither of Rhyhorn's moves are very good and with a retreat cost so high, there are a plethora of other basic Pokemon cards you should be using out there instead of Rhyhorn from the X and Y set.
