Durant -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Durant Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Durant from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set.  Durant is a basic, metal type Pokemon card with an hp of 70, it has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Durant does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Chip Off, this move requires one colorless energy card and allows you to discard your opponent's hand at random until they have 4 cards left in their hand.  Durant's second move is called X-Scissor, this move requires two energy cards, one each of metal and colorless, and does 20 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin, it does 20 more damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Durant 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, if you're building a metal type deck and need a starter type Pokemon card for that deck, this Durant card is definitely a card to consider.  I could see myself using 1 or 2 of these cards in a deck, I would try and get Durant into the active Pokemon spot as early in the game as possible, that way Chip Off would definitely discard plenty of cards from your opponent's hand and X-Scissor would be able to knock out some weaker Pokemon in 2 turns for sure.  What is nice about this card is that it has a low retreat cost, so if you have to play it later in the game, you should be able to retreat it no problem.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average Basic Pokemon card from the Flashfire set.  I like pretty much everything about this card and if you're using this card as a starter type Pokemon it will work well.  It has an above average hp, low retreat cost, and two average to slightly above average moves.  So you definitely can't go wrong with considering this card for your metal type deck.
