Goodra -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Goodra Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Goodra from the Flashfire Pokemon Card Set.  Goodra is a stage 2, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 150.  It has a x2 weakness to fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Goodra's Ability is called Gooey Regeneration, this ability allows you to discard an energy card attached to Goodra and heal 60 damage from it.  Besides the Ability, Goodra just has one move called Heavy Whip, this move requires three energy cards, one each of water, fairy, and colorless, and does 80 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin the move does 40 more damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Goodra is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Goomy into play and then evolve it into Sliggoo before you can evolve Sliggoo into Goodra, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both Pokemon were very weak in this set and I wouldn't use those two without Goodra because they both have low HP and cannot do much damage when attacking.  Because the first two Pokemon in this line are so bad, if you choose to use this card in a deck, make sure to evolve the entire line on the bench and then get Goodra to have at least 4 or 5 energy cards before moving it to the active Pokemon spot.  That way you can use Heavy Whip every turn, then if Goodra is close to feinting you can use its Ability and heal 60 damage from it, and then continue on with Heavy Whip because you'll still have at least 3 energy cards on Goodra.  Of course if you want to use this line in a deck, you'll have to use it in a dual type deck of water and fairy type Pokemon, and you'll want to have a low number of each of these Pokemon because Goomy and Sliggoo are so bad, so if I were to use this line in a deck I would use a 1-1-1 line.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Flashfire set.  I really like this card's Ability and its only move, both are above average, but the reason I didn't give this card a 5 out of 5 rating is because the retreat cost on this card is high, and the energy cards Goodra requires is a bit strange making it fit only in certain type decks.  Overall, I would give this entire line of Goomy, Sliggoo, and Goodra from the Flashfire set a 3 out of 5 rating, it could definitely be used, but you'll have to really hope you won't need to use the first two Pokemon in this line at all or for long.  Individually I gave Goomy a 2 rating, Sliggoo a 1, and Goodra a 4.
