Chansey -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Chansey Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Chansey from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Chansey is a basic, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 100.  It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Chansey does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  Its first move is called Nap, this move requires one colorless energy card and heals 30 damage from Chansey.  Chansey's second move is called Lucky Punch, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 100 damage if you have exactly 7 cards in your hand.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Chansey is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Blissey, 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.  Even though this card has a good HP, and made even better by its first move, and this card can do 100 damage per turn, I would not recommend using it.  The main reason being that this card may end up doing zero damage for you if you don't have exactly the right amount of cards in your hand, and its retreat cost is high, so if you're using it without Blissey, you may end up wasting all of the energy you put on Chansey to retreat it.  If you do want to use this card in a deck because you think you can easily get 7 cards in your hand, with trainer cards, etc, then I would get three energy cards on Chansey on the bench and when in the active Pokemon spot use Lucky Punch every turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Blissey, this card is a well below average Basic Pokemon card.  This card has a lot of positives that I mentioned in the previous section, like a high powered move, and good HP, but this card is just too slow, has too high of a retreat cost, and is too risky in my opinion to warrant use in a deck at all. so use this Chansey card at your own risk.
