Munna -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Munna Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Munna from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Munna is a basic, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Munna does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called See Through, this move requires one psychic energy card and allows you to see the entirety of your opponent's hand.  Munna's second move is called Double Headbutt, this move requires two energy cards, one each of psychic and colorless, and does 20 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip two coins.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Munna is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Musharna, 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 you could definitely use this card in a deck as a starter type Pokemon, but because the only move that actually does damage on this card requires coin flips, I definitely wouldn't use more than 1 of these cards in a deck if I would use this card at all.  If I were to use one of these cards in a deck, it would have to be mostly a psychic type deck and I would try and get two energy cards on Munna as soon as possible and use this card as soon as possible in the game, I would attack a Trick Coin tool card to this card so I would have two chances at being able to do 40 damage per turn, and I would use this same move every single turn.  See Through doesn't do too much for me, unless you really want to know your opponent's strategy early on, I would stick to Double Headbutt, but if you put this card into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, you can definitely use this move to your advantage.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Musharna, this card is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Phantom Forces set.  This card does have a lot of positives about it, but none too great that it would make me want to even give it an average rating.  Munna does have a higher HP for a Basic Pokemon and it does have two moves.  The major problem I have with this card is that there is no for sure path to do damage, Munna's first move doesn't do any damage at all, and if you put two energy cards on this card and use Double Headbutt, you may end up doing zero damage if you get two tails.  So in my opinion, if you're building a psychic type deck, it would be better to look elsewhere for Basic Pokemon cards.
