Golurk -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Golurk Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Golurk from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set.  Golurk is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130.  It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Golurk does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Wreck, for three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, this move does 60 damage plus if there is a Stadium card in play this move does 60 more damage plus you can discard the Stadium card in play.  Golurk's second move is called Golurk Hammer, this move requires four energy cards, three colorless and one psychic, and does 100 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Golurk is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Golett into play (I reviewed Golett from this set yesterday) and then evolve Golett into Golurk.  If you read yesterday's review of Golett, you'll know that I thought that card was a below average Basic Pokemon because even though it had a high HP, it had two below average moves and a really high retreat cost.  So on its own I didn't recommend using it.  So knowing this about Golett and looking at this Golurk card, I would recommend using this card in a deck, but wouldn't use more than a 1-1 line of Golett and Golurk.  I would make sure to set up both Pokemon in this line on the bench, get at least 3 energy cards on Golurk before moving it to the active Pokemon spot, then use Wreck if there is a Stadium card in play and Golurk Hammer every other turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set.  I think this is an above average card because Golurk's HP is extremely high and it has two moves that do above average damage.  You'll have to be weary when using this card that it will take awhile to attack since the fastest move Golurk has is 3 energy cards and if you want to retreat Golurk you'll have to give up 4 energy cards.  Overall, I would give the  line of Golett and Golurk from this set a 3 out of 5 rating, I gave Gollet a 2 rating.  So I would recommend using this Pokemon family in a deck, but wouldn't use more than one of each card.
