Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sliggoo from the Flashfire Pokemon Card set. Sliggoo is a stage 1, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Sliggoo does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Gooey, this move removes 30 damage from Sliggoo, and requires one colorless energy card to use. Sliggoo's second move is called Gentle Slap, this move requires three energy cards, one each of water, fairy, and colorless, and does 40 damage.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Sliggoo is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Goomy into play (I reviewed Goomy from this set yesterday) and then evolve Goomy into Sliggoo. Sliggoo does have a stage 2 evolution in Goodra that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Sliggoo is the final evolution in this line. So if you read yesterday's review of Goomy, you'll know that I thought that card was a below average Basic Pokemon card that shouldn't be used on its own, unless you were specifically building a fairy and water type deck and were desperate for one more card. Because Goomy is not the greatest and this card, Sliggoo, is not great as well, I would not recommend using the first two Pokemon in this line in a deck without using Goodra. If for some reason you really like the first two Pokemon in this line and want to use Goomy and Sliggoo, I would use a 1-1 line, and probably wait to put this Pokemon line into the active Pokemon spot, until Goomy is evolved on the bench and Sliggoo has three energy cards on it, that way you could use Gentle Slap every turn and then use Gooey if Sliggoo got in trouble because you wouldn't necessarily want to retreat Sliggoo and give up three energy cards to do so.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a way below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Flashfire set. The reason I'm giving this card my lowest rating is because of its low HP and high retreat cost. The two moves this card has are decent, Gooey is an average move, but Gentle Slap does way below average damage for the amount of energy cards it needs to attack. So if I were to rate both Goomy and Sliggoo from this set combined, I would give the two cards a 1 out of 5 rating, I am definitely not a fan of them, especially since they need to be in a dual type deck.
