Hawlucha EX -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Hawlucha EX Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Hawlucha EX from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set.  Hawlucha EX is a basic, EX, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 130. It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Hawlucha's Ability is called Counterattack and says that any time Hawlucha EX is your active Pokemon and attacked by your opponent, put two damage counters on that attacking Pokemon.  Besides the Ability, Hawlucha just has one move called Moonsault Stomp, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one fighting, and does 60 damage, plus if there is a Stadium card in play the move does 100 damage total instead of 60.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Hawlucha EX is a basic Pokemon card you won't need to use any other cards with this card.  But remember, because this card is an EX card, if this card is knocked out, two prize cards are taken instead of one.  So knowing this, I may consider using one of these cards in a deck, especially if I am going to include some Stadium cards in my deck.  I would then make sure to set Hawlucha up on the bench, get three energy cards on it, get a Stadium card into play, then move Hawlucha to the active Pokemon spot.  That way, you could use Moonsault Stomp every single turn doing 100 damage a turn, plus if the opponent attacks, Hawlucha does an additional 20 damage to it.  The reason I wouldn't use more than one of these in a deck is because for an EX card, Hawlucha has a pretty low HP, and I wouldn't want to give up two prize cards.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average EX Card from the Furious Fists set.  I like both Hawlucha's move and Ability, but neither are that dominant where they would make this card a must play.  Besides having a good move and Ability, this card has a very low HP for an EX which makes this card not that great, thus making this card average overall.  So if you are building a fighting type deck, I would definitely recommend looking at this card and trying it out, but there are definitely better EX cards out there if you want to use one in your deck.
