Rhyperior -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Rhyperior Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rhyperior from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Rhyperior is a stage 2, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 160.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Rhyperior does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Rock Blast, this move requires one fighting energy card and does 50 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip a coin for each fighting energy attached to Rhyperior.   Rhyperior's second move is called Rock Wrecker, this move requires four energy cards, two each of fighting and colorless, and does 130 damage.  However, after using Rhyperior's Rock Wrecker attack, it cannot attack the next turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Rhyperior is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Rhyhorn into play and then evolve it into Rhydon before you can evolve Rhydon into Rhyperior, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  Both of these cards are absolutely dreadful and should be avoided at all costs, so this Rhyperior card really has to be amazing for me to want to recommend using it in a deck.  And unfortunately this card isn't that good, it is definitely better than the first two cards in this family in the X and Y set but I wouldn't recommend using it in a deck.  If you really want to use this entire line in a deck, I would include a 1-1-1 line and set up the line on the bench, get four energy cards on Rhyperior and then use Rock Wrecker when in the active Pokemon spot if you can knock the defending Pokemon out in one move, otherwise if you're feeling lucky and you have four fighting energy cards on Rhyperior use Rock Blast.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average card overall in the X and Y Pokemon card set.  I like that this card has a high hp and two average to slightly above average moves, but the card is really slow and the retreat cost is high, plus you have to take into account the first two Pokemon in this line and how bad they are, because overall, I would give this line a 2 out of 5 rating, individually Rhyhorn and Rhydon were ones and this card of course was a 3.
