Gligar -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Gligar Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gligar from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Gligar is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Gligar does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Rock Cannon, for two colorless energy cards, this move does 20 damage times the number of heads you get when you flip a coin until you get tails.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Gligar is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Gliscor, 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.  The main reason I say this is because this card is totally dependent on coin flips, so if you get this card all set up with two energy cards, and flip a tails right away, Gligar can do absolutely nothing.  If you do decide to use this card in a deck, I wouldn't use more than one, and I would try my hardest to get a Trick Coin trainer card on this card so you have two chances of at least starting off with a heads when performing Rock Cannon making the move do at least 20 damage a turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Gliscor, this card is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Phantom Forces set.  I do like that this card has an average HP, can be used in any type deck, and has the potential to do gobs of damage, however, this card is slow on the attack and like I said earlier in this post, this card may end up doing no damage at all for you.  So I would veer away from this card if at all possible.

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