Slakoth -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Slakoth Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Slakoth from the Furious Fists set.  Slakoth is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Slakoth does not have an Ability and it only has one move. The only move that it has is called Big Yawn, this move requires two colorless energy cards and puts both Slakoth and the defending Pokemon to sleep.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Slakoth is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Vigoroth and a stage 2 evolution in Slaking, 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 would highly recommend not using this card in a deck.  Not only can it do no damage at all, but the amount of energy cards required to retreat this card are more than the amount of energy cards required to use Big Yawn.  This card may work okay if you are using it with at least Vigoroth because you can then get this card into play, put both Pokemon to sleep and hopefully set up your own Pokemon for awhile then evolve Slakoth into Vigoroth.  But again, on its own, I would highly recommend not using this card in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very poor Basic Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set.  The only average thing about this card is that it has 60 for an HP, other than that, everything is below average.  The only move it has requires too many energy cards and does no damage at all, and the retreat cost on this card is unbelievably high.  So I can not recommend to use this card one tiny bit.
