Thundurus -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Thundurus Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Thundurus from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set.  Thundurus is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 120, it has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Thundurus does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Raging Thunder Punch, this move requires two energy cards, one each of lightning and colorless, and does 30 damage, plus if your opponent's active Pokemon has a Pokemon Tool card attached to it, this move does 30 more damage, for a total of 60 damage.  Thundurus's second move is called Lightning Slam, this move requires three energy cards, two lightning and one colorless, and does 100 damage, however, you can't use this move two turns in a row.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Thundurus is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, if you're looking for a lot of power from a Basic Pokemon card, this is a card for you to use in your deck.  I would probably put one of these cards in a lightning type deck, stash it on the bench, get three energy cards on it, then move it to the active Pokemon spot when you for sure can knock out a Pokemon by doing 100 damage, use Lightning Slam one turn, then retreat it back to your bench and do the same thing later on down the road.  Raging Thunder Punch should only be used when you can't use Lightning Storm, so either you've used that move the previous turn or you only have two energy cards on Thundurus, or the defending Pokemon would be knocked out by 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average Basic Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set.  Regardless of what the moves are on this card, I would still give this card an above average rating because it has a massive HP and a very low retreat cost, but this card is even better than that because both moves Thundurus has are average to above average.  So if you're building a lightning type deck, I would recommend taking a very hard look at this card.
