Torchic -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Torchic Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Torchic from the Furious Fists set.  Torchic is a basic, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Torchic does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Quick Attack, for two energy cards, one each of fire and colorless, this move does 10 damage, but if you get a heads when you flip a coin, this move does 40 damage total instead of 10.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Torchic is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Combusken and a stage 2 evolution in Blaziken, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions.  So on its own, I would consider using one of these cards in a fire type deck as a starter type Pokemon.  The reason I would only use one of this card if I were to use it at all is because Quick Attack doesn't do much damage for two energy cards if you don't get a heads when flipping a coin, but if you do get a heads, 40 damage is very good for only two energy cards.  So strategy wise, make sure and get this card into the active Pokemon spot very early in the game, then you'll need to get two energy cards on Torchic to be able to use Quick Attack every single turn, you'll also want to hope for some luck with this card so you can do way above average damage every single turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Basic Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set.  Even though Torchic's Quick Attack move will probably do below average damage for the amount of energy cards it requires I am still giving this card an average rating based on the potential Quick Attack can do and for the fact Torchic has a solid HP, and low retreat cost.  So if you're in need of a Basic Pokemon card for your fire type deck, this one should definitely be considered.
