Hawlucha -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Hawlucha Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Hawlucha from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set.  Hawlucha is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 70, it has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a free retreat cost.  Hawlucha's Ability is called Shining Spirit and says that when attacking using Flying Press, the move isn't affected by weakness or resistance.  Besides the Ability, Hawlucha only has one move called Flying Press, this move requires one fighting type energy card and does 60 damage, however this move only works on EX Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Hawlucha is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, you'll definitely not want to include more than one of these cards in a fighting type deck if you decide to use one at all.  Because Flying Press can only attack EX cards, your best bet strategy wise would be to get Hawlucha on your bench, put 1 energy card on it, then when your opponent puts an EX card into the active Pokemon spot, you can move Hawlucha into the active Pokemon spot, use Flying Press once, then retreat Hawlucha the next turn.  However, because Hawlucha only has 70 HP, you're more than likely going to get knocked out right away if you face an EX Pokemon with more than 70 HP remaining, so the only way I would even use this card would be if my active Pokemon gets knocked out, then I move Hawlucha into the active Pokemon spot and can knock that EX card out by doing 60 HP, then your opponent doesn't have any Pokemon in play that will be able to knock out Hawlucha that next turn.

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.  There is quite a bit of strategy to be used around this card, but overall I don't think the strategy is worth it and would not recommend using this card in a deck.  I would rather include more powerful Pokemon in my deck that won't get knocked out in one turn by an EX card.  So even though this card has a really quick move that does major damage, and a free retreat cost, I would not recommend using this card in a deck because it only works against EX cards, so it severely limits what this card can do.
