Pangoro -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Pangoro Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pangoro from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set.  Pangoro is a stage 1, darkness type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Pangoro does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Clobber and for two energy cards, one each of darkness and colorless, this move does 30 damage plus if you discard an item card from your hand the move does 40 more damage.  Pangoro's second move is called Hammer Arm, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness, and does 80 damage, plus you can discard the top card of your opponent's deck.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Pangoro is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get one of the two Pancham cards from this set into play (I reviewed both from this set a few weeks back) and then evolve Pancham into Pangoro.  If you read those reviews you'll know that I thought both Pancham cards were pretty poor, so if you had to choose one of them, when using with Pangoro, I would go with the one numbered 59/111 because at least you can evolve Pancham immediately when you get it into the active Pokemon spot.  So knowing that both of the Pancham cards from this set aren't good, I wouldn't recommend too many of these Pokemon in a deck.  At most, I would only include a 1-1 line of Pancham and Pangoro.  I would set up Pancham on the bench, get three energy cards on it, move it to the active Pokemon spot and evolve it immediately into Pangoro, or hopefully you were able to evolve it on the bench.  Then I would use Hammer Arm every single turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set.  This card has a well above average HP, and two average to above average moves.  I really like Pangoro's Hammer Arm move since it does below average damage plus it discards one of your opponent's cards in their deck.  However, this card does have a high retreat cost and neither of the Pancham cards in this set are very good.  So overall, I would give Pancham and Pangoro from this set a 3 out of 5 rating.
