Scrafty -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Scrafty Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Scrafty from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set.  Scrafty is a stage 1, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Scrafty does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Corner, this move requires two energy cards, one each of darkness and colorless, and does 30 damage, plus your opponent can't retreat during their next turn.  Scrafty's second move is called Jet Headbutt, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness, and does 80 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Scrafty is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Scraggy into play (I reviewed Scraggy from this set yesterday) and then evolve Scraggy into Scrafty.  If you read yesterday's review of Scraggy you'll know that I thought that card was a pretty poor Basic Pokemon card because it has a high retreat cost and only one move that is coin based and it may not do any damage every turn.  So if you want to use this Pokemon line in a darkness type deck, I wouldn't use more than 1 each of Scrafty and Scraggy, I would try and get Scraggy on the bench, then move it to the active Pokemon spot when it has at least two energy cards on it, then you can use Corner the first turn then Jet Headbutt every turn after that.  Both of the moves that this card has are good, so if you're looking for a fairly powerful card to use in your deck that doesn't require that much energy, this card should definitely be a consideration.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Flashfire set.  I say this because Scrafty has an above average hp, two moves that are both above average, and a fairly low retreat cost.  Together with Scraggy, this line is only average because Scraggy received a 1 from me, but if you need one more Pokemon line in a darkness type deck, this line should do the job.
