Shroomish -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Shroomish Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Shroomish from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set.  Shroomish is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Shroomish does not have an Ability and it only has one move called Tackle, this move requires one colorless energy card to use and does 10 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Shroomish is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Breloom, which I'll be reviewing in a few weeks, since that is a fighting type Pokemon, 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 unless you just need one more card in it to make your deck have 60 cards.  I say this because even though everything is average on this card, it is just very limited on what it can do and can at the best do 10 damage every single turn.  So if you have to put this card in your deck, you'll want to get it into the active Pokemon spot early and use it as a starter type Pokemon while setting up your benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set.  Like I said in the strategy section, the only thing that I really don't like about this card is that it can only do 10 damage and that is it, no Ability, second move, or inflicting of a special condition.  So if you just need to put a card into your deck, this one wouldn't be terrible, but other than that, I would look elsewhere for a Basic Pokemon card for your deck.
