Feraligatr -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Feraligatr Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Feraligatr from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Feraligatr is a stage 2, water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 150.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Feraligatr does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Hyper Whirlpool, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one water, and does 60 damage, plus you get to flip a coin until you get tails, for each heads you get remove an energy card attached to the defending Pokemon.  Feraligatr's second move is called Second Strike, this move requires four energy cards, two each of water and colorless, and does 80 damage plus 80 more damage if the defending Pokemon already has damage counters on it.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Feraligatr is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Totodile into play and then evolve it into Croconaw before you can evolve Croconaw into Feraligatr, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last couple of days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both cards were below average, and if you decide to use this Feraligatr card in a deck, you should definitely set up this entire line on the bench.  With that being said, I would highly recommend using this line in a deck, especially a spread damage type deck.  I would try and get a Pokemon into the active Pokemon spot that does 10 damage to each of your opponent's Pokemon in play, while that Pokemon is in the active Pokemon spot I would set up Feraligatr and get four energy cards on it.  Then, when Feraligatr is set up, move it to the active Pokemon spot and use Second Strike every turn, doing 160 damage every turn.  Once you knock out all of the Pokemon with damage already on them, I would attach Trick Coin to Feraligatr and then use Hyper Whirlpool, doing 60 damage and giving you two chances to discard a ton of energy cards off of your opponent's active Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an awesome Stage 2 Pokemon card from the Phantom Forces set and one I highly recommend using.  Not only does this card have two moves, but both moves are great and do above average damage plus additional things, making this card a great card to use.  Definitely use this card in a water type deck or a spread damage type deck, using a 3-2-2 line of this Pokemon family.  Even though I only gave each Totodile and Croconaw a 2 out of 5 rating, I would give this entire Pokemon line a 4 out of 5 rating.
