Yanma -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Yanma Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Yanma from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Yanma is a basic, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Yanma does not have an Ability and the only move it has is called Air Slash.  This move requires two colorless energy cards and does 30 damage, however you must discard an energy card attached to Yanma after using this move.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Yanma is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Yanmega, 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.  I say this because even though Yanma has a high HP, and low retreat cost, and Air Slash does above average damage, I don't want to have to keep attaching energy cards to basically a starter type Pokemon every turn to use Air Slash.  Instead, I would want to be able to put two energy cards on Yanma period, and then start setting up my benched Pokemon.  If you do decide to use this card in a deck, make sure to not use more than 1.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Yanmega, this card is a below average Basic Pokemon card.  Like I said in the strategy section of this post, this card is pretty good outside of having to discard an energy card every turn, so if you can get over that fact, this card wouldn't be bad at all to use in a deck.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Yanma from the Phantom Forces set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Yanma's stage 1 evolution Yanmega, which is from this same set.  Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
