Roggenrola -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Roggenrola Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Roggenrola from the Phantom Forces set. Roggenrola is a basic, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 70.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Roggenrola does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Tackle, for two fighting energy cards, this move does 30 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Roggenrola is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Boldore and a stage 2 evolution in Gigalith, which I'll be reviewing the next two days, you'll more than likely want to use those cards with this Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed those cards yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolutions.  So on its own, I would not recommend using this card in a deck because it requires three colorless energy cards to retreat and only one to attack.  However, if you are for sure going to use this card with its evolutions, this card would work perfectly to put into the active Pokemon spot immediately, since as soon as it gets two energy cards on it, it can do above average damage for a Basic Pokemon card like this one and knock out most Basic Pokemon cards with evolutions within 2 moves.  So, by itself, do not use this card in a deck, unless you can figure out a way to retreat this card for free.

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.  I do like that this card has an above average HP, and a good move, but this card is slow on the attack and has an extremely high retreat cost, so using it on its own probably isn't the best thing to do.  But if you end up playing Boldore and Gigalith in a deck, this card will be a solid start to that line.

Roggenrola has been released in only three sets till now even though there are 4 total Roggenrola cards in the English TCG (there are 2 of them in the Emerging Powers set). Hence there isn't a fourth set to include a Roggenrola card.
