Venomoth -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Venomoth Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Venomoth from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Venomoth is a stage 1, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 90.  It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Venomoth does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Dizzying Wind, this move requires one grass type energy card and the move makes your opponent flip a coin during their next turn if they play a trainer card, if they get a tails, the trainer card they used has no effect.  Venomoth's other move is called Noxious Scales, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one grass, and does 50 damage, plus it confuses and poisons the defending Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Venomoth is a stage 1 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Venonat into play (I reviewed Venonat from this set yesterday) and then evolve Venonat into Venomoth.  If you read yesterday's review of Venonat, you'll know that I thought that card was an average Basic Pokemon card, it had a solid HP and low retreat cost, plus one good move, it just took a little longer to execute than I would have liked.  So knowing this about Venonat and looking at Venomoth from this set, I could see using a 2-1 line of Venonat and Venomoth in a deck.  I would use Venonat as the starter type Pokemon, get two energy cards on it, use its only move for a couple of turns, then evolve Venonat into Venomoth.  If you use Venomoth at the beginning of the game, 50 damage should knock out many Pokemon in two turns, later in the game is when you will benefit by being able to both poison and confuse the defending Pokemon.  Even though this card only has 90 HP, because it has a low retreat cost, this card can still work fine later in games.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an average Stage 1 Pokemon card from the Phantom Forces set.  There is nothing that really stands out to me with this card, everything is average, thus making me give it an average rating.  Venomoth's first move, Dizzying Wind, doesn't do much for me, but I would make sure to have three energy cards on Venomoth at all times.  So together with Venonat from this set, I would give the two cards a 3 out of 5 rating, both cards received 3 ratings individually and combined.
