Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gothorita from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card set. Gothorita is a stage 1, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 80. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Gothorita does not have an Ability but it does have two moves. The first move that this card has is called Fortunate Eye, this move requires one colorless energy card to use and allows you to look at the top 5 cards of your opponent's deck and arrange them in any order that you'd like. Gothorita's second move is called Smack, this move does 30 damage for two energy cards, one each of psychic and colorless.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Gothorita is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Gothita into play (I reviewed Gothita from this set yesterday) and then evolve Gothita into Gothorita. Gothorita does have a stage 2 evolution in Gothitelle that you'll probably want to use with this Pokemon line but since I haven't reviewed that card yet, the strategy below will act like Gothorita is the final evolution in this line. So if you read yesterday's review of Gothita, you'll know that I thought that card was a below average Basic Pokemon card because it had a lower HP, and even though it did have two moves, neither could do more than 10 damage. Because of this, I didn't recommend using Gothita in a deck on its own. So knowing this about Gothita and looking at this Gothorita card, unless you really want to mess with your opponent and rearrange the top of their deck by using Fortunate Eye, I wouldn't recommend using this card in a deck either. I say this because Gothorita has a low HP, and neither move on this card is that great, Smack is a pretty average move. However, if you choose to use the first two Pokemon in this line, I would move Gothita into the active Pokemon spot right away, do 10 damage with that then evolve Gothita into Gothorita as soon as possible, then depending on if you want to mess with your opponent's cards, either use Fortunate Eye, or Smack. I would use Smack most turns if I had this card in the active Pokemon spot.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this is a below average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set. Because this card has a low HP and two average to below average moves is why I'm giving this card a below average rating and not recommending to use this card in a deck. Together with Gothita from this set, I would give the two cards a combined rating of 2 out of 5, just like the rating each card received individually.
