Pachirisu -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Pachirisu Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Pachirisu from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Pachirisu is a basic, lightning type Pokemon card with an hp of 70, it has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to metal type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Pachirisu does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Trick Sticker, this move requires one colorless energy card and does 10 damage, plus it makes the defending Pokemon have a lightning type weakness until the end of your next turn.  Pachirisu's second move is called Pachi, this move requires two energy cards, one each of lightning and colorless, and does 20 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin, it does 30 more damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Pachirisu 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, you should use it as a starter type Pokemon trying to get it into the active Pokemon spot to start the game.  I say this because, you only need one energy card to start attacking with Pachirisu, and if you get two energy cards on this card, you can use Trick Sticker the first turn, doing ten damage, then the next turn do potentially 100 damage if you get a heads when flipping a coin and getting heads using Pachi, and you can improve your chances of getting a heads by attacking Trick Coin to this card.  So because this card will let you do 100 damage a turn for only two energy cards, I would definitely include this card in a lightning type deck, and would put at least 2 of them in that deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is one of the best starter type Pokemon you can use in a lightning type deck, and one of the best Basic Pokemon cards from the Phantom Forces set.  I like that this card has a higher HP, low retreat cost, and two good moves.  If you alternate between Trick Sticker and Pachi, you can do on average 55 damage a turn from a Basic Pokemon card for only two energy cards, which is a really amazing thing on a Basic Pokemon card.  So you cannot go wrong with using this card in your deck, so definitely consider it when building a lightning type deck.
