Gothita -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Gothita Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gothita from the Furious Fists set.  Gothita is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 50.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Gothita does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Slap, for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage.  Gothita's second move is called Psy Bolt, for two energy cards, one each of psychic and colorless, the move does 10 damage, plus if you get a heads when flipping a coin you can paralyze the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Gothita is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Gothorita and a stage 2 evolution in Gothitelle, 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 probably wouldn't use this card.  But if I were to use this card with its evolutions I would be very willing to use this card as a starter Pokemon.  If you do choose to use this Pokemon on its own, I would try and get it into the active Pokemon spot as early in the game as possible, then use Slap the first turn and Psy Bolt every turn after that.  If you're able to flip a heads when using Psy Bolt, you will be able to prolong the time Gothita will be in the active Pokemon spot and allow you to better set up your bench.  The main reason I wouldn't use this card in a deck on its own is because of Gothita's low HP, but only being able to do a maximum of 10 damage is also a major reason.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set.  Like I mentioned above, this card will be better when using it with Gothorita and Gothitelle, but by itself, this card has too low of HP for my liking and can only do 10 damage which isn't very good for a Basic, starter type Pokemon.  So if you're building a psychic type deck, this card wouldn't be the best card to use in it, but it could definitely be used.
