Clauncher -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Clauncher Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Clauncher from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set.  Clauncher is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Clauncher does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Bubble, for one water energy card this move paralyzes the defending Pokemon if you get a heads when you flip a coin.  Clauncher's second move is called Crabhammer, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one water, and does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Clauncher is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Clawitzer, 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 definitely recommend not using this card.  I say this because not only is Clauncher extremely slow to do damage, but if you try and attack for only one energy card it may not work because Bubble is a coin flip based move.  So I would make sure and avoid this card at all costs unless of course you're going to use this card with Clawitzer, but in that case I would make sure and keep this card on the bench.  If you use this card in your deck, I don't think I would put three energy cards on this card to do only 30 damage a turn, I would only use Bubble and save those other two energy cards for some of my other Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, this is a very below average Basic Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set.  I do like that this card has a low retreat cost, average HP, and two moves, but both of the moves this card has are extremely poor, thus making me give this card a very low rating, and telling everyone to avoid using this card in a deck on its own.

I'd say true (I don't think Kalos Starter Set can be considered a normal set).
