Scraggy -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Scraggy Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Scraggy from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set.  Scraggy is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Scraggy does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move this card has is called Tail Rap, this move requires two energy cards, one each of darkness and colorless, 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 Scraggy is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Scrafty, 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 this card is just flat out horrible.  Other than having an average hp, that is where this card ends with having positives, this card has a high retreat cost and is very limited in only have one move and the only move it does have may end up doing zero damage every single turn.  If for some strange reason you want to use this card in a deck, definitely don't use more than one, try and get it into the active Pokemon spot to start the game and hope for some luck while using Tail Rap, because if you do get 2 heads, 40 damage is pretty good early on.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Flashfire set and deserves a very low rating.  This card is similar to the Sandile card I reviewed earlier and I gave that card a 2 rating, but this card is even worse because it has a lower hp and a higher retreat cost.  So if you're looking to build a darkness type deck, definitely look elsewhere for a Basic Pokemon card to use.
