Maractus -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Maractus Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Maractus from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set.  Maractus is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 90, it has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Maractus does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Exciting Shake, this move requires one grass energy card and allows you to flip 6 coins instead of 2 when using Prickly Needles during your next turn.  Maractus's second move is called Prickly Needles, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip 2 coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Maractus is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, because this card really only has one move that can do any damage and that move is a move that relies on a coin flip, if I were to use this card in a deck, it would have to be a grass type deck and I would only use one of these cards in this deck.  I would move it into the active Pokemon spot early in a game, use Exciting Shake the first turn and Prickly Needles next possibly doing 120 damage a turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the Flashfire set.  I would definitely use this card in a deck because it can quickly do 120 damage a turn.  However, this card may end up doing 0 damage every turn and therefore become useless in your deck.  So like I mentioned in the Strategy section of this review, if you want to use this card in a deck, make sure to not use more than 1.
