Alomomola -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Alomomola Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Alomomola from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Alomomola is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 100, it has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Alomomola does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Super Deep Dive, this move requires one water energy card and allows you to heal 30 damage from Alomomola and switch it with one of your benched Pokemon.  Alomomola's second move is called Surf, this move requires four energy cards, three colorless and one water, and does 80 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Alomomola is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, if you want to include this card in your deck, make sure to not use more than one of these.  Put four energy cards on Alomomola on the bench, move it into the active Pokemon spot to use Surf every turn, then when it is getting close to being knocked out, use Super Deep Dive to not only heal Alomomola, but to switch it with one of your benched Pokemon without having to retreat it, that way you can put it back into the active Pokemon spot again and use Surf right away.  Again, because this card is so slow, I wouldn't use more than one of these cards in a deck, if I were to use one at all.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Phantom Forces set.  This card does have a higher HP, and one good move that does a fair amount of damage.  But in my opinion, this card is too slow to use in a deck, especially with only 100 HP, I would much rather include Stage 2 cards in my deck that require the same or less amount of energy cards to do more damage.  So you can definitely use this card in a deck, even though I wouldn't, but do not use more than one of these if you choose to use it.
