Gothitelle -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Gothitelle Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gothitelle from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set.  Gothitelle is a stage 2, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 130.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Gothitelle's Ability is called Teleport Room and says that once during your turn you may discard a Stadium card in play and exchange it with a Stadium card in your discard pile.  Besides the Ability, Gothitelle just has one move called Psy Report, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, and does 60 damage, plus it allows you to see your opponent's entire hand.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Gothitelle is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Gothita into play and then evolve it into Gothorita before you can evolve Gothorita into Gothitelle, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both cards were slightly below average because neither has a high or even average HP and neither card can do that much damage.  So knowing this about the first two Pokemon in this family and looking at this Gothitelle card, I wouldn't recommend using this line in a deck unless you are setting your deck up around using specific Stadium cards, then I could potentially see putting a 1-1-1 line Gothita, Gothorita, and Gothitelle in your deck, keeping these Pokemon on the bench the whole time and eventually getting Gothitelle on the bench to utilize its Ability.  Once you do get Gothitelle on your bench, if you're using it, it would be worth it to put three energy cards on it, because that move does do 60 damage which is average and it will be a big bonus for you to see your opponent's hand and to know their strategy.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set.  Even though this card has a little lower HP than most Stage 2 Pokemon out there I am still giving this card an average rating because its Ability is good, specifically if you're using a lot of Stadium cards, and the one move it has is pretty decent doing 60 damage a turn and showing you your opponent's hand.  But overall, I cannot recommend any of the Pokemon in this family for using in a deck, I would give the entire line a 2 out of 5 rating, individually Gothita and Gothorita were 2s and Gothitelle was a 3.
