Machop -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Machop Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Machop from the Furious Fists set.  Machop is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Machop does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Knuckle Punch, for one fighting energy card this move does 10 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Machop is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Machoke and a stage 2 evolution in Machamp, 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 wouldn't recommend using this card in a deck.  I say this because even though Machop has an above average HP, it is very limited move wise since it only has one move and the only move it has can only do a maximum of 10 damage.  Plus, if you put this card into the active Pokemon spot, you're going to have to attach two energy cards to it to retreat it.  If you do choose to use this card in your deck, only use one of these cards, try to get it into the active Pokemon spot early in the game and use Knuckle Punch every turn, then when you get one of your benched Pokemon set up, retreat Machop for that Pokemon.

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, the only positive on this card is that it has a high HP.  Otherwise, the move it has is just average and cannot do much damage, and the retreat cost on this card is too high to warrant use.  So if you're building a fighting type deck, you're bound to find a better Basic Pokemon card out there than this card.
