Binacle -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Binacle Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Binacle from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set.  Binacle is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Binacle does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Double Scratch.  This move requires two fighting energy cards to use, and does 30 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip 2 coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Binacle is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Barbaracle, 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 not recommend using this card in a deck.  I say this because even though Binacle has a high hp, and can do up to 60 damage a turn, since Double Scratch is based on luck, you may end up doing 0 damage every turn, then if you want to retreat Binacle from the active Pokemon spot, you'll have to add one more energy card to it before retreating it.  If you do decide to use Binacle in a deck, make sure to not use more than one, and the earlier you get this card into the active Pokemon spot the better.  Because if you are a bit lucky with this card, Double Scratch will be able to do quite a bit of damage against weaker Basic Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Flashfire set.  This card does have some positives on it like having an above average hp, and the chance at doing 60 damage a turn for only 2 energy cards.  But I would not use this card in a deck, that is why I'm giving a below average rating, the retreat cost is way too high, the move isn't that great in my opinion.  So if you're building a fighting type deck, I would look elsewhere for a Basic Pokemon card.

binacle is possible based on the goose barnacles so i would presume the body would be refered to as the stalk that is used to cling to the rocks.
