Heatran -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Heatran Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Heatran from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Heatran is a basic, metal type Pokemon card with an hp of 130, it has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Heatran does not have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move that this card has is called Steel Drop, for three energy cards, two colorless and one metal, this move does 40 damage plus 40 more damage if there is a Stadium card in play.  Heatran's second move is called Steam Blast, this move requires four energy cards to use, two each of metal and colorless, and does 130 damage, however you must discard an energy attached to Heatran after using this move.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Heatran 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, I would definitely not recommend using more than one of these cards in a deck since they are so slow on the attack.  If you decide to use one of these cards in your deck, set it up on the bench and get at least four energy cards on it.  That way, you can use Steam Blast multiple turns in a row.  I would recommend this card more if you use a Stadium card in your deck, if you do, feel free to use up to two of these cards, since you'd be able to do 80 damage a turn with Steel Drop.  But because this card is so slow on the attack and neither move is that great, I wouldn't recommend using this card in a deck.

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.  Even though this card has a very high HP and two moves that potentially can do a lot of damage, I'm giving this card a below average rating because both moves this card has are extremely slow to use and both moves are not that great in my opinion.  So unless you need a slow, but somewhat powerful card in your deck, I would avoid this card altogether.
