Litleo -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Litleo Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Litleo from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Litleo is a basic, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Litleo does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Roar, for one colorless energy card this move makes your opponent switch out their active Pokemon with one of their benched Pokemon.  Litleo's second move is called Live Coal, this move requires two energy cards, one each of fire and colorless, and does 20 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Litleo is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Pyroar, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own I would not recommend using this card in a deck.  The main reason I say this is because it takes two turns for Litleo to attack and it has a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  If you have a spread damage type deck, Litleo might have some reason to be in the deck with its Roar move, but I don't like the move much since you can't choose the Pokemon your opponent puts in the active Pokemon spot.  So if you do choose to use this card in a deck, use only one and use Live Coal most turns.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Pyroar, this card is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  Like I said in the strategy section of this post, this card's retreat cost is too high, and neither move it has is very good.  You can definitely find better fire starter type Pokemon out there, so you don't need to use this one.
