Pikachu -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Pikachu Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pikachu from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set.  Pikachu is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Pikachu does not have an Ability and it only has one move, the only move this card has is called Thunder Shock, for two energy cards, one each of colorless and lightning, and does 20 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin the active Pokemon of your opponent's is paralyzed.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Pikachu is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Raichu, 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 consider using one of these cards in a lightning type deck.  I would try and get it into the active Pokemon spot early in the game, get two energy cards on it and use Thunder Shock every turn.  The earlier in the game you use Pikachu the more time you'll have to set up your benched Pokemon, because if you paralyze the defending Pokemon and make them unable to attack, 60 HP will go a lot farther than it should.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, this is a slightly below average Basic Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set.  Like I said, this card could be used in a deck on its own, but I would use only 1 at the most.  This card has an average HP, one good move, but it does take a while to use, and a low retreat cost.  So I would recommend looking for better lightning type cards out there to use, but if you really like Pikachu or need one more card for your deck, this one isn't that bad.

It was EX12: Legend Maker. However, take note the card was a Delta Species card.
