Cubchoo -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Cubchoo Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Cubchoo from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set.  Cubchoo is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Cubchoo does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Fury Swipes, for one water energy card this move does 10 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip 3 coins.  Cubchoo's second move is called Frost Breath, this move requires three energy cards, two water and one colorless, and does 40 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Cubchoo is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Beartic, 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 the first move Cubchoo has, Fury Swipes, depends on coin flips and may end up doing no damage at all, and the second move Cubchoo has, Frost Breath, does way below average damage for the amount of energy cards it requires to attack.  However, if you use this card in a deck, I would try to get it into the active Pokemon spot early and use Fury Swipes every turn.  If you have some luck with this move, you could easily do 20 or 30 damage a turn for only one energy card while you're setting up your benched Pokemon, the only downside to this is that you'll then have to attach one more energy card to Cubchoo just to retreat it.  Unless you're evolving Cubchoo into Beartic, I would not put three energy cards on Cubchoo to use Frost Breath.

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.  This card does have some positives in that it has a high HP, and two moves.  However, like I mentioned above, neither move this card has is that great, and the retreat cost is higher than the first move Cubchoo has so you can just put one energy card on this card and be done with it.  So if you're building a water type deck, you could definitely take a look at this card for it, but I would recommend passing.

12 + 1 alternate full art of Seismitoad EX (which gives 13), plus maybe 2 more if we count alternate holo versions of Amaura and Aurorus from Ancient Power Box (which gives 15)
